According to the map maelstrom resets to 3 neutrals. So no bonus can come from this at any time, (- [maelstrom] + [controlled favored] = +2)so this cannot be done.

But I am fine leaving it as it is now. No need to completely balance the game.

I would make Maelstrom not reset ... but maybe decay of 1 .... I just want Wizards to be cooler than they currently are...

Fine, balance the neutral to the decay. The higher the neutral they have to fight, the lower the decay. No one really wants to hit 10 neutrals and then decay by 10.

Here are the new maps... I also have one with starting forces in there .. the small ones lost some quality when uploaded to imageshack and I need to look into that.

The XML for this thing is going to be a monster... I really hope that conditional borders will let me do everything I want with this map... If there is an XML expert that wants to give this a go or give me some guidance I would be happy to work with you.

Small map, text is very hard to read in the bottom legend. Try a glow.

I added a glow to the text and tried to clean the text up and make it readable at both sizes. Not easy to do at 72dpi (web resolution)

Anyone else have any comments? I am thinking I can make that legend look even better... if the graphics seem like they are going in the right direction I'll spend some time doing the pixel perfect nudging as well.

You do have a little bit of room, I wouldn't mind you trying going a tick or 2 higher on the small map font size for the legend.

AGreed ... the fonts in the legend on both large and small could use some work. I will look at that asap.
