This is a NEW version of Gear Wars: Episode I
There was complaints that the original allowed a winning strategy that guaranteed a 1st player win. Personally, I don't think a winning strategy within a map is a bad thing, but the public has spoke and I have listened. Here is the "Fixed" version, enjoy and please re-review!
PLEASE BE SURE TO READ
This is a limited attack game. Each player gets 5 attacks with Continuous attack turned ON (Attacking with all units counts as 1 attack) and 2 transfers per turn with return to Attack ON. For the most part, Imperial ships only attack the Rebel Ships and the Rebel Ships only attack the Imperial ships. There are Fortify only borders between all Empire ships and Empire ships and between all Rebel ships and Rebel ships.

A special thanks to Cramchakle for the graphics, Severene for the inital inspiration of the map and Yertle for the hours and hours of testing to get it right. Trust me when I say that the map is set up the way it is for a reason. The borders make it Fair from the start. I suggest not making up your mind about the map until you've gotten to know it a little bit.
Version 1.1 must also thank BlackDog & Alpha for forcing to get it right and helping me do so. Also, thank you to Megaboobsmcgee for insulting the map in a review and since that is my favorite Online Name EVER, I felt it important to do what the public said needed to be done.
