Going back to the individual colony bonuses might not be a bad idea... I think I know just how to fit it in there. So I'll give it a shot with the next update.
And Jefjef, I think i want to keep the ship-landing point bonus as it helps the south, but the problem is that it also helps the north a bit as well. Given that there's the neutrals in the easy northern bonuses, it might be alright.
Industrial Helix wrote:As for landing a bonus or getting one two easy, I'm gong to contest that. Here's my reasoning, In order to get a bonus you would have to land at least a total of four territories (Maryland, NJ or NH). Many maps have four territory bonuses (Classic, Canada, BeNeLux, Great Lakes especially and so on) and those maps reward the bonus more than one soldier and are easily defendable.

Industrial Helix wrote:Ok, starting the ships with a 1 man neutral might be a good idea to prevent easy landings... I'll keep it in mind but am not totally sold on the idea.
I will make adjustments to the bonus legend to remove the 12 and 10 colony bonus.
What about the possibility of dropping North and South Carolina to two territories each?
And if we bump it up tot he first bonus starts at 3, then the smallest bonus area possible is 3 territories, if you're willing to attack all neutrals. And none of the easy to get bonuses have common borders, which adds to the difficulty. If we keep the ship bonus as is, this should aid a player starting in the south. It will also aid a northern player, but more in the sense of adding another territory to defend instead of holding at Mass.
What about the possibility of adding another ship at Georgia? Or even removing Boston and adding in at Georgia?
