Black Forest map unbalanced

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: 47820
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

The black forest map can give one side all the ponds and the only set of 6 boars.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • Less than 25% of the time / matches I play (RARELY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Generate a lot of maps in 4v4.
  2. See if any of them give all the ponds to one team, as well as putting the group of 6 boar in an uncontestable zone.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

Food sources should be evenly distributed or at least equally contestable between the two teams.

Thats how BF is suppose to be, it doesnt need to be perfect. Thats the idea of it. It is same as if you would complain why nomad is not a “perfect” square map with exactly equal res at exact points. Please dont try to post such topics that are not needed. Thanks.

No, the one team isn’t supposed to have all the 4000 or so extra food. Nomad is nomad, team start map is team start map.


Here’s another good one from the current build.

Yet another one. Three stones buried, including my starting stone.

Not the worst one ever but

On this one there were 18 extra boar on one side and 3 on the other. 6k extra food vs 1k extra food.
