I'm actually playing the map, and think it's interesting. I think, though, that there should be "continents", i.e. if a player is able to control all three lanes in a zone, he should for instance get 1 troop extra. I am beginning to suspect, though, that the best strategy in the game is just amass all your troops in one region and wait until you can strike multiple rounds. Trouble with that is, of course, that you don't get any spoil, and may lose in the end.
