OK, clearly I should NEVER re-post an old version of the map, even with a warning.
Below are the current army count placements. When placing the counts where I did I took into consideration the following factors, in this order:
1. keeping elements off of borders. Don't want army counts bleeding off into other territories, because that is damn confusing.
2. keeping as many counts as possible actually on the territory. Japan and Korea didn't allow both the count and the title to be on the territory, so I figured it was best to at least have the count on within the borders. UK was just a disaster all around, and given how much is already going on inthat part of the map i didn't want to blow the country up as I did Japan.
3. consistency across the continent. For example, at one point I had all of N. America's counts above the titles, but I moved the mex and greenland counts below the titles to keep the titles within the borders.
And I do think that my version looks better than if all are directly below the territory title.
