Is there any chance that a +3 start bonus could be fixed? Game 12664636, bit of an unfair start advantage.

Issue with bonus on vertex... I believe I am due one for the lower right connection of 4 but am not receiving one. Receiving 4 for 13 regions, no bonus.

formal suggestion
remove the connecting territ bonus and make it a territory bonus.
reason: its difficult to reach area's and totally to break it. larger continents give a reasonable bonus dispite being unchallangeable in the first few rounds(where it matters)
make a continent bonus will slightly reduce this and redress the situation.
for continent bonusses you can thing of somewhere in the range of +2 to +4. I would suggest setteling on +2 (or 3) for every continent, the smaller continents are more difficult to hold, the bigger continents are... bigger and therefor harder to achieve...

other idea's
:to make the noth and south connect via the compas thingie(south territ needs to be elongated slightly to fit) and also the east and west connect.
this makes reaching around slightly easyer because right now if someone gets an early hold somewhere, its hard to challange it.

I have no idea how this happened. Random drop and all that. But to get a drop of 6 regions out of 14 in one bonus area and all connected. The odds must be ludicrous. Not done anything to fix this issue.
Maps coming. I am having trouble finding a font I like.

That is a huge overhaul of the map. Too early to see if what SirSebstar point is valid. Not going to reject it but will wait for at least a month till I look at it more carefully.

Thanks for understanding. People seem to like the new bonus structure, I am just trying to find out why now. If it is easier to get and hold, that is fine, but if members are abusing it in a way I did not see, that is not.

I am in the process of doing that. I just cannot find a font I like. As soon as I do, I will post new maps.

Hey Koontz,

Quick question cause not sure if i'm not reading the board correctly but figured i'd bring it up and also not sure if it's been addressed.

I had Dominica, Antikythera, Carlt. then in the SW; Syros, Cauda, Delos, Anticosti but only dropped 3. Should i have dropped 4?

anyway, thought i'd bring it to your attention. Great job on that map btw... looks like it's going to be a fun one!

Game 12650871


Edit: also, now that i got Spetemtriones and Dode... looks like the bonuses added up. err, i think.
