Sorry but it is one of the first decision I took when I started this map. Based on the 18th century way of doing map: White background, black borders and just a border of color for regions. Of course I could have choosen an other graphic chart but I'll stick to this one as I really like it and I'm sorry if you're not pleased with it.
It's not a question of liking or not liking. Have you ever read the map guidelines? A map should be playable for all people on CC even people who are colour blind. The way you have decided to colour the different regions makes it extremely difficult for me to differentiate between a region and another. Besides even Andy has already told you to try something else in earlier posts if I'm not mistaken. You can't ignore these comments and move on.
I am quite surprised you are so adamant to change considering how you insisted I should change my colours on Cyprus, something that in fact I'm going to do to try to please you and others who wanted that change. Would you be happy to have a map that cannot be enjoyed by all the CC community? I'm sure that if you think a bit about it you'll change your mind. Don't get me wrong I like this map or else I wouldn't be commenting on it, but I want to be able to play it, and right now I can't.
Here is an extract from the guidelines in case you missed them. I highlighted the aspects which I feel you are not addressing.
"To earn your graphics stamp you must comply to the following conditions:
1) Image must present itself as clear and legible
2) The aesthetics must be to a presentable foundry standard and must also satisfy the community at large
3) Cartographers must ,where possible, reduce any disadvantage that can be caused to a colorblind individual
