Decided to look at the (very few) team games I have played on this map. In one out of three team games, Game 8397492, there was a struggle for the Vatican. I did not review in detail why this occurred.

I thought about it as well. And I don't see any problem about this reduction when it comes to standard games. People will just starting using most of the map earlier...

If that would be the base, I can't really have a problem with it. I don't know if it's the case or not. Either way, I don't have a big opinion on it, because I don't play the map enough.

and here we go again.....

Granada from 5 to 4
The Vatican from 5 to 3
Venice from 3 to 2
Constantinople from 3 to 2
Cyprus from 5 to 4 (also reduced London-Cyprus bonus from 2 to 1)
Tyre from 4 to 3 (also reduced Paris-Tyre bonus from 2 to 1)
Seleucia from 3 to 2 (also reduced Ratisbon-Seleucia bonus from 2 to 1)
Antioch from 5 to 4
Krak des Chevaliers from 3 to 2
Rakka from 2 to 1
Jerusalem from 5 to 4

Considering:
The reduction of Iberian Kingdoms bonus from 4 to 3.
Currently if you add Granada you'll get +5 to protect 4 borders, with the possibility of bottle necking on Toulouse. Reducing those 4 borders to 3. On the other hand IK is a continent with a lot of territories to conquer. Nevertheless.... not totally sure about this part. Would like some opinions.
