but first, tell me if you like this way or i must try something else for the graphic.

I think we have to eliminated the balls as you say!
Great work with forest and montains!
Well done!

because the cadapults can only bombard one spot, i think that they should either be able to bombard the territories in opposit quadrent or the two adjacent quadrents, just throwing that out there

Personally, I think it would be nice if the territories/regions had names instead of numbers - but only because it lends more to the imagination...

These are only suggestions:

The Fields could be
    1. Wheat
    2. Oats
    3. Maize
    4. Barley
    5. Rye / Ryegrass
    6. Oilseed
    7. Cotton
The forest could be:
    1. Thicket
    2. Wildwood
    3. Forest
    4. Woodland
    5. Coppice
The mountains could be:
    1. Heights
    2. Ridge
    3. Peak
    4. Precipice
    5. Pass
    6. Range
The desert could be:
    1. The Flats
    2. Wasteland
    3. Barren Land
    4. Wilderness
    5. Quicksand
    6. Dunes
    7. Savannah
The courts could be named for kings or queens, or seasons, or different types of garden?
The towers could be named after their quadrant: "Mountain Tower" etc.

Ah ok! Hmm, well I'd say that you should leave it as is if you had those all spelled out... but since you just have the first letter I think changing it to W is best. :D
