    I think water is a huge part of these problem, between all the water and the buildings you have to make there is scarce room for towers. Plus a huge part of building was inching forward with towers, not so possible with how hard building on water is.

    Precisely, maps is alot of the problem, there should be more dry land on maps, and a much greater variety of water masses. Well I say greater variety, I'd like to see a great variety of much smaller expanses of water, from little 1o tileish wide ponds, that you have to bridge over, 20 tileish ones that might cause a dilemma as to whether to tunnel under or bridge over them if a forts on the other end, and then lakes that just about require a boat to get over but you could maybe get away without. Currently we only have massive seas that are impassable without boats, and the drier bits of the map aren't anywhere big enough for any sort of territory battle, at least 9 times out of 10 one team will have complete control over an island, with water being the heavily contested area.

    For what its worth, the drowning fatigue and drowning at surface have been removed in the latest test build. There are enough ways to counter rushing now that we don't feel like it's as much of an issue, but if it turns out to still be a big problem once the game is public we can always sigh and add the red barrier back.

    We wanted to release it yesterday but were unable to due to build server issues. Should be out today, ready for the weekend (armok permitting).
