People may write off the bombarding because glancing at the text, without reading it, looks like it could be all about impassables. Not much you can do, since there is not much more room for extra space. The only thing you could do is alter the text color, or the highlight fog/cloud around it to offset the information more.

changing the text color of the bombard statement would certainly help :)

Okay, I have rearranged the legend a bit and colored the text for the Bombardments and Impassables, hopefully this is easier to understand now.

You having a laugh with that red on impassables. It is the brightest thing on the map, in fact it is so bright I cannot see the map from all of the glare coming of it. ;)

Please tone it down some.

EDIT: bombards, not impassables. :oops:

I'd probably remove some of that sheen from red, but overall, I've been more than satisfied with this excellent map.

hmmm... ok I didn't follow the reasons that went into this, but I absolutely hate the Taipei-Fujien bombard. Sorry. I don't see what purpose it serves at all! The Wu bonus is already extremely cumbersome so hold. It has a lot of natural bonuses, it a can be held but not easily. Now that Taipei can bombard it, it's like why even try to hold the bonus?

I could understand an actual connection to break up the long linear sea route, that makes sense. Also a sea connection would allow a player holding Wu to use Taipei as a reinforced border with a +2 autodeploy.

I say make it an attack route or remove it all together but this bombardment seems to help no player and just diminishes the playability of that region.

You are the first person to ask to remove it. The bombardment plays on the conflict that China has with Taiwan now. I haven't really seen it being used all that much to be honest. So for now unless a few more come in here asking to have it removed, it will stay.

Could the red be toned down just a tad?

but what even was it's intended purpose? like in a gameplay sense? I understand the historical implication, but if it's a horrible gameplay element it shouldn't be put in, imo.

P.S.

I don't want to come across as down on your map. I seriously love this map, bombardment or not.


But the bombardment is stupid
