Basically, I have now played or I am playing a few more games on this map, my conclusion is that no one will go for the objective. I find that getting the objective on a map is a fun alternative strategy but given how many neutrals one needs to go thru in order to achieve a win with the objective it will never be done in a real game.
My suggestion was to take the 3 neutrals around Budapest and Wien and turn them into standard territories or 1 neutrals. I just feel that if there is going to be an objective it must be realistic to obtain, the way it is designed it is way easier to dominate the map than objective, even with fog. This map will be one of the many where no one ever gets the objective like Peloponnesian War for example.
If map can still be modified that would be awesome cause I think it is a above average in playability but it could be awesome. I got into the map late to offer feedback sorry
Congrats on getting it passed though

Now, let me say that's a bit funny to read what you wrote...this because if you go back of a couple of pages in this thread you can read the opposite...
My opinion is that the objective is not easy to achieve, but not so damn hard....i think it's strictly related with the game settings and the number of players, certainly it is not something you can do in few turns. The problem is the thrones give you also an additional bonus, so maybe reduce them is not a totally a bad idea.
But have those neutrals reduced to 1 is too much imo, for example it will give too much power to the player who has a lucky drop/dice on Bohemia regions.... maybe reduce them to 2 could be better? (with the exception of Tolna that I would like to keep at 3 in any case)
