Tankers!

We proceed with internal playtests of the Ghost Town map to check its suitability for Random Battles.

This time, we'll try a more spacious version of it: 1000 by 1000 meters instead of 800x800. We assume this will make room for mobile vehicles allowing them more maneuvering throughout the battle. We've also reworked the central part of the map: there are less passages between the houses now, and fast flanking moves will be less likely. This should decrease the amount of 'turbo-wins' when one side's advantage quickly snowballs. Additionally, we've taken measures to make the map more comfortable for every vehicle class, like moving the houses on the outskirts of town. Ghost Town now has more shoot-throughs for TDs who can support their allies and help them contain the other side's heavies.

The extra space at the sides of the map will also let light-armored snipers do their job, establishing control over separate patches of the location.

We'll plan our further steps in adapting the Lost City for Random action depending on the Supertest results. Please make sure to follow the news and best of luck in every battle!

How long does it take for these supertests to go from conception to completion? Just a random question.
