It might be cool to get optional fonts to use for the numbers, BUT that won't likely happen for obvious reasons. I'll see if I can't tweek the hue on the green a little more and isaiah40 wants me to squeeze the bricks down some to give the illusion that the map is on a much larger wall.

I also find the colors and numbers situation hard to read here. Unfortunately I have no solution or idea of how to fix it but I'll think about it

Back with a lil time for Philly here.

Alterations:
Bricks scaled back to give the perception of being a mural on a much larger wall.
Green in South Philly further altered to better jive with army color green
signature cleanup
South Philly text color changed to black to read easier on the lighter green bonus color
minor details cleaned up(mostly with the inset)
some tinkering with the overall look of the brick background

Some territory names likely need a tiny bit of repositioning due to the scaled back bricks, for clarity, easy positional fix.

Color Blind test should be clear:

Is the only thing I was going to comment on really, but I see that you've got that in your mind already.

I'll see if anything else comes to mind.

Bricks are a little better, though IMHO they could be a little bit smaller.

Further shrinking the wall will make the grout outlines affect more territory names. This something I want to avoid, for readability and clarity reasons.

color blindness test

There is still some general cleaning up to do, territory name positions, couple of border extensions, (although I may end up redrawing them entirely.) and maybe a minor change or two, but I wanted to get this up and clear the black box out... ;)

Lookin' good. There are only a few region name placements that could use adjustment I think, for instance: Univ City (the abbrev), Juniata, and maybe a couple more.

The graffiti comes to life now.

Two minor points:
- Inset of Center City has streight lines at the right side that make it look unifinished and overlaps with the pipe/raingutter.
- Legend has the old colours.

Looks good. Some of the arrow connections could be clearer like Holmesburg to Tacony for example.

I like the idea of underdog bonus

Ah yes, this is looking more like graffiti now!! As for the city center inset, yes the paint needs to on the pipes as well. I agree that the attack arrows between regions need to stand out more, maybe add an outer glow?

Well I think the graffiti look has really improved. However, i think there is no flow to this map. Probably because of all the outlining instructions and images and arrows. The map is unique, however I'm not a fan.
