Very good job. I like what you did with it. This is what I was trying to achieve before the project fell dead, I'm glad someone actually used my idea and made it their own instead of what Tisha did with my Gulfe du St. Laurent, stealing the map layout and all, and just redoing the graphics to make it "her" map. I will never play a game on that map that was wrongfully credited to someone who stole the map in its final stages.

Correction, that was a competition which Tisha won. You can read it the competition here! If memory serves me right, the map sat for about a year with no activity, so we decided to resurrect the map and do a competition, and you can read the results of it in the above link.

With all do respect I have no idea what you are talking about? I don't believe I ever saw any project you were working on and I certainly didn't use anyone's idea. I'm aware that there were other attempts at colonial Africa maps, (the only one I can actually remember seeing is Industrial Helix's attempt) however, I didn't base this map off of any existing idea's. If this map is similar to something you were working on I assure you that it is purely coincidence. I'm glad you enjoy the map though.

Regarding your comments on Tisha's version of the Gulfe du St. Laurent map, there is a big difference between starting a project and finishing it. Tisha is an excellent map maker who has made immeasurable contributions to this site. I would consider it an honor to have her finish one of my ideas. Instead of bad mouthing her for finishing one of your map's you should consider thanking her.

Congrats, great map TBK! I've enjoyed quite a few games already, I'm sure I'll enjoy many more.

Is it just me, or are team games kind of broken on this map?

Granted, I've only played 2, but in both of them my team went second and by the second round all of our superpowers were gone and didn't have a prayer of getting them back.

You risk taking them with the negative bonus, and they can be conquered back by through the flagged regions on Africa. The strategy employed against you does appear to be the best though.

Gilligin, you mean that is a kind of a bug or u just find it hard to get the powers back when someone gets it from you?

nolefan, u CANNOT take attack the powers from the landing territories, they are 1 way assaulted by the powers. Powers can only be assaulted by direct bordering territories

This is incorrect. Landing Territories can all be 1 way assaulted from any European Power, but they can also assault back to their corresponding power (Zululand can assault Great Britain, Spanish Guinea can assault Spain, Ivory Coast can assault France, etc)

Yeah, but the negative bonuses don't apply when you have only two.

And yeah, you can attack back to them, but that's just more neutrals you need to go through and another round of autodeploy against you on the superpower.
