I was just playing some games on this map, and for a turn when I wasn't paying that close attention, I thought there was an additional region between Leydenburg and Pretoria---because the mountains near there had a little wisp of a graphic line that I was part of a border, so I wondered how the heck I assaulted over a country to Pretoria.

THis looks like a small-map issue, and could be fixed by simply removing that mountain in the middle of Pretoria...

I don't think it is much of an issue, it just hung me up for a turn.

Just played this for the first time on a 1v1 and noticed that both players start with 12 territories. Isn't this undesirable? My opponent picked up 4 troops to deploy because he went first, and then I started with 3.

Yep sorry its taken me so long to reply on this but its mainly because I have a lame response. And that is: that's just part of the map.

I think Jefjef, either in this thread or 13 colonies, and he made a good point about maps with 12 terrs per player and that was that he enjoys the little challange and it provides a fun little aspect to the map making it enjoyable to play. While everyopne doesn't seem to agree, but I made up my mind that "well, it may not be optimal for 2 players, but some people will enjoy it so therefore no point in adding two territories" and since no one insisted that 2 more be added and there wasn't an uproar when it was in Beta.. it is as it is.

I mean, if the admins insist that a change be made I will do it. I don't know where I'll put them, but I'll figure something out. Really though, one would think it would be relatively easy to adjust the game engine to not alot territories at 12 per player. Thus eliminating this sort of thing for all the maps

OK fair enough. I just couldn't believe that it had made it through the Foundry without someone pointing that out, so I figured there was a reason, even if not the most compelling. I'll just avoid playing it on 2 players :)

Hi,

Leydenburg is spelled wrong and should be Lydenburg. Check Wikipedia/Google Maps or whatever you want. It is also not like it was historically spelled this way or something.
