FBD is such a great tool, but I am not sure many times what the host is trying to achieve.

ie. senario 1
Maps randomly change, from eastern front, to normany, pacific, etc.... I assume the goal of host is to mix it up.

ie. senario 2
Create an environment that is a struggle to move the front line, etc...

I don't see senario 2 very often. However, this is the senario I'd personally like to see.

> Move the frontline incrementally when one side reaches goals. This gives the sense of pushing the map forward. After frontline is moved in one direction 5 times for example, then the map is 'won'.

This would create a sense of battling for territory.

My suggestion - if any hosts are interested, I'd like to know so I could fly on their server.

Stats would be good to know who won the total map, not just who won one battle to move frontline.

Also - this movement would take flying longer for movement to occur, instead of fast map changes. Fast map changes do not promote climbing up, etc... by the time I get good alt the map is always changing, which is quite frustrating.

Thanks for allowing me to post my ideas.

Salute!

Being able to view a webpage that showed the status real time, with a map, would be interesting as well.
