As a lot know, I've spent probably 80% of my play time on the island map, and there's still a few minor things that bug me. I've noticed that if the Vikings get most, if not all of the chests, they can be EXTREMELY hard to steal from especially if everyone is defending properly. They don't even necessarily need to be that great if they're all there. It usually requires a good joint effort to steal from the Vikings, however I notice that this is more difficult as a Pirate than as a Knight. The Knights have two fairly close exits to choose from when running with the treasure and it's a shorter run to the Knights area. Though I could be wrong about that, as it "feels" longer getting to the Pirate area with a chest because obstacles of falling off the bridge into the water or treading through water outside of the club slowing you down. Not to mention that the Viking spawn is positioned in such a way that they can see the Pirates running with a chest if they go that direction.
I've played around in the older versions of island, and I noticed that way back when that the underground passage for the Pirates used to go to where the bridge was. I think it would be nice if one could choose to go either way, that way the Pirates could split up the way that the Knights can. Also I personally think that the Knight's tickets should be lowered to 420, but that's debatable. It usually takes my absolute A+ game in order to win as a Knight. If the Pirates get the chests, it definitely seems more difficult to retrieve chests as a Knight. Because the distance between the entrance to the Pirates and their capture zone is a fair distance away. And the Knights have only one entrance to the Pirates whereas the Vikings have two. Unless you count going through the Viking area to get to the Pirates.
Plus the Vikings have the secret area to teleport to the Knight side quickly and is easy to bypass any aggressive Knights to get to the Pirate area.
I love the map, I don't think any major changes should be made to it, though I would like to see at least one of these considered even if they weren't all necessarily suggestions, I wanted to bring up the points anyway to see what others think.. Well, thanks in advance for any considerations.
