Yes, you have to remember when you play 1v1, the drop is essentially a 1v1v1 drop, with one player being neutral. (Starting positions will alter the math here a bit since they are divided between the two real players, but I don't think this map has any.)

Maybe there's a solution to fix the "too" big number of neutrals....let me do some math ;)

Give every man your ear, but few thy voice. Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.

Perhaps I code the cities as starting positions? This would solve the issue. Thoughts, TBK?

Starting Positions will help to have less neutral on the map but doing that, in all 4p games each player will start with 12 territories.
What do you prefer?
Usually I'm not so happy to have those type of starting numbers on a map, but we should consider that probably the weakest players will attack the stronger.

There are 52 territories with 9 coded neutral cities. If the cities switch to starting positions and code them so that each player starts with one, it would solve the problem, but, of course, it doesn't do as much for 1v1s. I would certainly set the max at 2, no higher, to avoid dropped city bonuses. I'm fine with either solution.

So? TBK what's your thoughts on this?

I guess my point is that many neutrals are annoying (and ever present in 1V1s) but they don't affect the final outcome of the match. We could add in the start positions but I don't think it would serve much of a point.

Google Doodle honouring the discoverer of vitamin C; all that fruit looks very Californian; I see where MrBenn is coming from.

It's Cool Mrbenn is from a frozen rainy wasteland, he can actually only speculate on what a warm Mediterranean clime is like.


hmm... that seemed like maybe a needless burn on England... especially considering the fact that I'm from Ohio, the capital of temperate seasonal changes...

...

Why am I talking about climates?

The U.K. may be rainy, but frozen it ain't, and sitting at the end of the Gulf Stream, it's a lot more moderate than most locales at its latitude.
