I make 2 suggestions that can be implemented together or separately.
1) Connection between Sicily and Carthage.
2) Connection between Fleets- just connection between adjacent fleets would be sufficient. Ex. East and west Baltics conected, west baltics and eastern Med. connected, East med and central med connected, ect..
Either would potentially break the ultra protective Africa bonus (holding everything in between from Iberia to Syria through africa gives you a legion bonus and +3 Town bonus with only 2 territories to defend. If they can be attacked by sea or at least through Sicily this could weaken this incredibly strong position.
ok,you have two sugestion but need more explanation why, and what will bring to gameplay.
"Ultra protective Africa Bonus" what a name
first of all-in these are you have only 4 legions and you can not get bonus,second you have 13 terittory and 6 territory starting neutral(18 neutra army).
In some maps holding 13 teritory you will get more then 3(3 cities). It can be ultra protective place,only if you alove these,because its imposible that player take these area in 4-5 turn(he must get extra crazy dices to do that. 1v1 player,its possible but hard.3,4,5,6,7,8 player harder and harder,with 8 player these is imposibile in 5 round,maybe 15-20,ofcourse with cards.
I play a lot games and people take Britania and armenia first,because its most good defensive bonuses-in africa if you have more players,then who get first ,have chance to loose citi from opponent attack.
