2) Cornwall. Something needs to be done here, I think, especially if the Isle of Mann is left to open deployment. The only thing worse than easily droppable bonuses are imbalanced ones, and Cornwall is way harder to hold than the Isle of Mann, yet has the same measly +1. At the same time, Cornwall is also very likely to be dropped... and +2 is an even bigger gamebreaker. I smell a conundrum, for which I have no easy solution.
I agree ,something needs to be done about Cornwall and adding an extra territory will make it harder to obtain on the drop.
Yes Cornwall is sort of a "special" bonus and by "special" I kind of mean "Shitty". Which I think is kind of fine, it's not like every bonus has to be a strategic gold mine but here's what I got. Step 1 is Erasing the connection between Leinster and Devon. Step 2 is adding a connection from Domnonee straight to Stonehenge. This will prevent Cornwall from being quite the Crossroads that is now, and will give players another way around it. This will also prevent it from acting as a southern choke point (you can defend 3 bonuses with Celtic sea and Devon). I'm going to try and resist adding a territory to the bonus but I could be convinced with the right argument.
