I 100% believe the capitals should be neutral 2. I am actually quite impressed that they are used so much in games and I think it works really well (I would say the same about California's cities). Adjusting them to neutral 3's risk their being ignored for the most part.

To be honest i like it the way it is now...! I don't see a problem with it being about the capitals... ;)

Good job Isaiah! =D>

I like the capitals as they are. Small games they are not ignored but taken as opportunity arises and in large games, they are the easier bonus to grab. Leave them as they are.

Though if I had one suggestion at this point it would be to lower the value of the Russian Federation bonus

Yes, I think the Russian Federation could be lowered 1, and the Han bonus increased 1.

Well everyone was happy with the font. I did try a whole bunch of other oriental fonts, but this one is much clearer and easier to read. I'll have to wait and see if anyone else has the same problem with it.

Maybe it is only me about the legend... or maybe others are just not posting?

It might be harder to read than some maps, but it is readable. I see no reason to change it and lose some of the maps flavour.

I've played it a few times and I think it's a lot about the bonuses, I think cities are a little Seconda, but not that they should not be there, if they were removed there would definitely be missing something. 3 neutrals instead of 2. will also make it harder to conquer bonuses, and when it will be the same for everyone there will probably not happen so much about it, other than difficulty level increases a little bit

Overall a good functioning game, a pleasure to play it

So this is the only thing to fix?

If this is the case, go with it mate. It seems a reasonable request to me. :)
