The falcon on one side of the map in the base has almost an instant spawn time, while the falcon on the other base has a much longer spawn time. Can we fix this please?

It's intentional, but I agree with you. The map balance on this version is much closer since both sides can hit the middle nodes from hill tops due to the middle node structure changes.

Wasn't there a version with the 5 and 10 nodes linked? I think both versions (this and TMU) would benefit from a slightly modified node link.

Yeah, I changed the Falcon respawn time, since people were complaining about one side of the map always winning.

What do people think about keeping the spawn times even, linking 5-10, and removing the Mino?

That would be awesome, even if just for a trial run.

Can we increase the spawn time on the Hurricane? It's instant respawn has no penalty, and it is frequently used to suppress the middle nodes with much effectiveness.

There is no Hurricane on Dria-Gorz. I do agree on connecting the center nodes and removing the Minotaur. Its large splash damage radius instantly kills all the 300-400 hp vehicles.

What vehicle do you guys think should replace the Mino? Also, this would be a good map to try out Binger's new Goliaths.

My votes are the lesser used vehicles:

Turtle to protect 1-2 (the ageis can barely defend the node)
Mega paladin from Gritnights because it's cool but not a kill-all
Nexis because more nukes?
Dimension tunnel shooter tank thing from Gritnights could be cool for clearing out 1-2
Firebug same reason for clearing out 1-2
Perses (tiamat thing from that one okay map that never gets played)
Short circuit to kill bender campers
Or make a Hammerhead that has seating for 5 for quicker start

1. Turtle on Dria-Gorz? No. It will be worse than the Minotaur.

2. Mega Paladin from GritNights? Is that the blackish one? I don't know much about it.

3. Nexxus... No. The vehicle lags the server and its way to powerful.

4. Dimension tunnel hooter tank thing from Gritnights, No. Its a terrible vehicle.

5. Firebug. Not sure what that is but it sounds stupid.

6. Perses (tiamat thing from that one okay map that never gets played) also known as the Mobile Asshole Station which is on DiamondSword and Syrma (both are not okay maps, they are great maps) however the Mobile Asshole Station ruins those maps.

7. Short Circuit would be a great addition because its powerful against nodes and tanks... but if all you want to do is kill bender campers so...

8. A hammerhead that has seating for 5. A hammerhead would be defenseless against the Falcon/Wasp/Mirage Raptor/Phoenix or whatever raptor variant is on the map. Although, the Flare Raptor would be useless on that map. Speaking of the Mirage Raptor, that would be awesome if it was put on the map!

How about a balista? Good if used properly, but dies fairly quickly.

Not a bad idea, but I think the large number of Hellhounds fill that role already.


To everyone else: These are great ideas for Dria-TMU if I ever get around to refreshing that map.

Yeah, this right here. None of this talk has anything to do with the regular Dria at all. I've been happy to see it played a little more recently. This 2015 edit is great.

I made a symmetrical version of Dria. If interested it could be used as a base for a new Edit. I think I have one of both the original and TMU. I'm not sure I chose the best side to duplicate but I could do the other side. Just a thought.

Says the one who knew it was under development, but didn't have anything to say about it other than a potential map to place it in.

Here's another thought: instead of linking 5 and 10, what if we linked the corner nodes (6 and 9 I think), sorta like MagicIsle? I think with the current asymmetrical version it may be skewed due to distance, since one side would be able to respond much quicker, but with Binger's symmetrical version and the fast movers it could make for some interesting matches.

I second that motion.
