Look forward to future tmm for 3v3 and 4v4 then, it might just be what you are looking for!

You can't change turtling habits with balance changes, only by changing incentives. Remove global rating, display ladder rating in ladder games, add rating decay, wait out the month long flamewar, and hopefully the number of megaturtle games will drop.

Ever think that if you ruin game balance to make dual gap more dynamic all the dual gap dudes would just migrate to an even less dynamic version of dual gap?

you need to make a balance that makes it impossible to play in the bunkers. so that the people want armies and units. not one big cannon for 40 minutes.
people just don't know anything else. maybe if they are offered something new, they will finally play differently. and the game will be much more interesting.
otherwise everything will remain so.
in the end, only the Moor's builders will play. within 32 minutes. )))))))))

@broker people play gap because they want to play gap. They want the easy playstyle, huge cannons and experimentals thrown around. If you change the balance that it won't be feasable anymore on dualgap they will just start playing an even turtlier version of dual gap. Don't know which rating range you are playing in but I suggest you to host your own games on more dynamic maps with 8 people in the game at max. Everything above that will turn into a turtle/ ecofest.

But I think it is time I visit some dualgap and abuse the shit out of t2 bombers. I know it can work.

Yes, because with large resources, it makes no sense to build anything other than a large cannon.

such games are rare. and the problem of bunkers with T2 artillery has not been resolved. again everyone is sitting in the bunker and building satellites and large artillery.

the problem is that regular units are not effective. you need to build a lot of artillery. it brings victory. there is no answer against her.

It sounds like you are talking about dual gap. Just don't play it if you don't like it.
Just play maps that have around 4 empty expansions per player and where you can go AROUND the bunker.

That already exists. Change the map and you change the incentives. Change the incentives and you change the behavior.

Try playing Wonder. That's a map with lots of players but there's a lot more army action because of the map layout. The teams are more spread out so there's a lot more room to make and use armies. People often make firebases, but it's not the same as Dual Gap. And the firebases often die to mobile armies, much more often than on Dual Gap.

Maybe not play gap?? And help making it less popular by hosting/joining other lobbies. Like generated maps, tmm or even a nice Madness map 😉

Give matchmaker a go

locking this,none of those follow the balance rules and overall it's some pointless statistics.
