Hi there's a spelling mistake in the larger map, it should be "HMS Intrepid" :)

Fixed and was going to post. But after having my butt kicked twice by isaiah, decided to lower all bonuses.

It's not the bonuses, I just had great dice this time around! :D

Edit: Hold off on changing the bonuses. I just created a 4 player game for us. Let's see how it play with more people.

I also created an 8 player game Game 11328673 password 1982

Thanks for the updates.
I would suggest to further reword the legend and replace the word "reinforcements" with "region bonus", because that would be more in line with the CC terminology. For example, like on the Arshyusk map: viewtopic.php?f=63&t=173881

That phrase is wrong, and that map is wrong. Phrase is good and will stay.

I really try to be constructive in a foreign language, but you should be also. Despising other maps won't make yours look any better. Even if the map I was referring to was the worst map on the Earth, it could still have parts that are done well.

The phrase "Reinforcements 1 for 4 Minimum of 4" is misleading and confusing. Although it has that meaning outside CC, it is here used in the following context: Jatekos reinforced 12th 6 with 4 troops from 12th 1

You should consider that not every player speaks native English, and when they see something like the above line in the game log, they will try to apply the information from the instructions and from the legend to it.

How would you interpret the above example based on the legend?

Because they are reinforcements, which is why I called them that. The only other map that has this type is First Nations Americas. It line states One troop for every four territories with a minimum of four troops. This would be ideal but I do not have the room for it. But even the Arshyusk map has Region Bonus 2 troops for every 3 regions. Minimum of 2 troops. This again is too long. I only have a limited amount of space to work with here.

I am not being judgemental about that map, and if you read that maps thread, you will see I was not and am trying to help MB to get it sorted and bring it back.

In my opinion, "Region bonus 1 for 4 Minimum of 4" would be better, as "reinfocement" is used differently at CC. It would also fit to the available space.

Is this the right map for someone who wants everyone to play with a quarter of the normal reinforcements and wants everyone to reinforce not less than 4 troops at a time? Maybe in the future, there will be a map where there will be such limitations on reinforcements, but this is not that map.

This is not a big issue, but I just don't think this one word should be used on the legend in this context. I understand that this is your map and so obviously you decide.

bonus +1 each 4 territories, minimum +4

Honestly, I think it's fine now because a majority of people understand what it means, but something like,

"+1 for every 4 regions with a minimum of +4" is ideal, and takes up less space then the current sentence. You may even be able to squeeze that under the Rules of Engagement box.

"Reinforcements" refers to when you move troops after assaulting.

    2012-07-09 12:53:48 - natty dread reinforced Yukon with 2 troops from Nunavut

Territories are referred as "regions" in the game.

    2012-07-09 12:52:50 - natty dread received 4 troops for 14 regions

"Region bonus" is more in line with CC terminology. It is strongly encouraged to be used in maps unless there is a thematic reason not to. On my Eurasia map the legend says "Region bonus is 1 for 4 regions, minimum 3 maximum 10".

Some older maps, eg. Hive, refer them as territories, and refer the troop bonus as "territory bonus" instead of region bonus, but the convention wasn't enforced back then and grandfather clause applies here.

So all in all I think it would be preferable to change the wording to "region bonus", as that would be in line with the guidelines mapmakers are asked to follow currently.

Is this different from what I posted?

If you refer to this

    "+1 for every 4 regions with a minimum of +4"

That works. If there's room it'd be preferable to preface it with "Region bonus:" but it's not absolutely required and can be omitted.
