My apologies for only posting this after quenching, but I didn't fully realise the implication of the "no connection across stations" until I rolled over the map with BOB map inspect. ( I sound like a stuck record in my recent posts - but can we have a playtest area PLEASE [-o< )

I think that some of the bonuses are a little off:

- Vilnius in particular is +2 for only 3 territories and just 1 border (don't let the fact it "touches" a number of other lines fool you)- I think +1 would be fairer.
- Baltic is +3 for 3 territories and 2 borders - I say +2
- Iberia is 7 territories and 2 borders, but just +2 - I say +3 would be fairer (Scan rail is also 7 territories and 2 borders and is already +3)
- an argument can also be made to make Ukraine Rail +3 too (6 territories and 2 borders, currently +2)


- all the other bonuses are very very hard to hold (especially those competing for shared territories) - and could be pushed a fair bit higher IMO (but in most games they will only come to play in the late game anyway, where there is either a clear leader or a stalemate).

One thing I've noticed on this map is that when you start leading the game, the bonuses just keep escalating. I felt I was in an AOR game with the armies raising that fast

This is a small nitpick, but the army count for the top G station of MLO is one pixel too high.

Paris D does not work with clickable maps. I had to use the drop down menu to attack from that position.

Mmm there are discrepancies between bonuses as BENJIKAT IS DEAD pointed months ago. Baltic express has 3 territories, only 2 of them in the border and it can be attacked only from 2 outside stations. It should give a +1 or +2 bonus, not a +3, that's even more than oceania in classic risk!
The other mentioned case is, again, Rail Iberia. 7 territories, 2 borders, 2 foes... It should give a +3 bonus...
Ukraine Rail +2 bonus is OK, but a +3 bonus could work too. It's hard to conquer a 6 territories bonus to only get a +2.
Vilnius Express: 3 territories, 1 border, 1 foe... That sounds like a +1 bonus to me :)

I have to agree about the Baltic Express. I sometimes think this game should be called Baltic and Vilnius Express for the WIn. :lol: While Baltic Express has been good to me in my games, it all depends on the drop so I wouldn't mind a change.. 8-)

I'm in favor of leaving it as it is. I mean, yeah, the bonuses are a tad unfair but that's part of the game.
