Can you give me a link showing which neutrals have 1,2,3 and 6 armies in it?

Nevermind that, I just searched for a round 1 sunny game.

I really like this map but I think there is an imbalance on it in some settings - fog with 8 players and probably fog with 7.

Starting on Persians with these settings you can take Dorian Cyclidians (swords) and have 2 or 3 neutral 6's between you and other players in that direction. A fairly well defended back door that you don't get elswhere on the map and the players on Romans and Skyros are likely going to run into each other before they can head towards you on Dorian Cyclidians.

This leaves you free to place most of your armies on Halicarnasans to break through the neutral 6 and take out the player starting on Icaria, who has to worry about 2 fronts.

If you succeed at this you are close to taking another sword on Phrygians while holding 15+ fairly safe territories, still only worrying about one front yourself. At this point you are in a pretty strong position and should be able to build for an attack through Phrygians to the next player (also having to worry about 2 fronts) while Dorian Cyclidians is still relatively safe.

I love this map, but it positively sucks to have Sykros be one of your two starting positions in 1v1. It is the most useless starting position by far because it is completely locked in. There's no way to grow from it. I know I will lose the game every time that I get Sykros. It really should be excluded from the starting positions - at least for 2 players.

I think that you should add Sicily because in the Pelopponesian wars the war went and in Sicily and also is there were the Athenians lost a big battle against the Spartans. After the battle with the Spartans in Sicily the Athenians were destroyed because they didnt had army and warships and the alliance that they have done with the other city-states was destroyed. So in the Pelloponesian war Sicily is very important to be added in the map because from there not the battle but the whole war was decided.The army that the Athenians send to Italy was very huge it was 5.000 infantry 100 warships and some horses this army was very huge for that time of the history (431 bC) and Athens lost almost all of that army.It was a disaster and then was that Euripidis made his theatrical play that was based on the Sicilian campaign and was telling in few words that the Athenians shouldnt have trusted the politicians who had betrayed them with words full of lies.If the Pelopponesian wars hadnt happened the world wouldnt be like it is now !
