Well, it's better, but I'd still like to see it organized better.
There are only three different dotted lines: one style to show ship to ship connections, one to show ship to land connections, and one to show the connections between the Military Quarantine (to help that bonus stand out). The ship to ship connections have been made nicer.
Well, thing is, the different dotted lines serve to make the map more confusing. You already have lots going on here, so any way you can use to simplify the layout of the map should be utilized... there's no need that I see to have different lines for land-sea and sea-sea connections, since they're all sea connections and function just the same.
As for the military quarantine... It might be better to figure out some kind of icon for those, rather than using the connections.
Do you have issues with the font on the map itself, or just the legend?
The territory font is a bit small, yes. I think you could increase all the territory name fonts by 2 points or so.
In the upper right legend, the texts next to the phone are a bit small. The "to the white house" text in Charleston is almost invisible.
