As it is now, you've got to roll a 4 vs. 3 and often enough it means you don't take a territory the first turn, which slows the game down and makes it possible for someone else to get a distinct advantage early in the game if they don't get screwed by dice.
I am actually wondering if setting the map to minimum of 0 was a bad idea as the only bonus you get first turn is the favored territory bonus of +1 however If the minimum were set to 2 you would get that 2 plus the favored territory bonus and start with 3. However you could then move 3 an have a stack of 12 on your 2nd turn. Maybe kingdoms could change to auto 2. To help with this as well.
