I find that truly mastering a complex maps can take many hundreds of plays. Das Schloss is my best map and I am able to guess any move someone can make before they make it. Even with fog I can always tell if you brake out, fort somewhere, take a bonus and can guess the other teams current troop count. When you can walk around the map with a big stack and not hesitate about attack paths nor second guess yourself you have mastered a map. When you are able to do all these with blistering speed and without hesitation you have mastered the map. When you know the strategy for assassin, terminator, standard, escalating, flat rate, nuclear, adjacent, chained, unlimited, freestyle, trench etc. You have mastered the map.
But learning a map isn't too hard at all.

It doesn't matter if you know the map( connections/bonuses etc) but how you play this game called risk.
How good are you on strategy etc etc. I have seen a lot of players who know the map but they can't play very well cause they just not good at this game.
So, you may know everything in a map but you might never be a master on it.
That's my opinion.

its never skill, never was,
its never strategy alone( it might pay off if u play vs someone who has joined new , is 9 years old, and has no idea anyhow)
its all pure luck, sometimes more, mostly less,
its a game with dice, that says all
so dont waste your time
download the xml file, have a look, and u know the map , even before u have ever played it
start the game, and u know in rd 1, what your chances are
there good or bad
and if cc likes u, u have the dice
without dice, screw knowing anything
this is a bad dice world, the rest is fake
(2 dollars worth a month- the smart ones dont even get premium, they get conqueror for free)
this is like saying poker is pure luck.
