It looks alright, until you see areas where the same color army coordinate is on the same background. Then they don't seem to stand out so well.

Which map is ready to be quenched?

The map WITHOUT the armyshadows/circles

The map WITH the armyshadows/circles

I agree, that the map maybe needs the shadows.
It was a good idea to make a map without them but probably it is better that we use them. Green and blue for instance are looking the same.

The army numbers are more muted that the real army numbers used on CC which area all way out of gamut. It's hard to tell if they stand out or not if they arnt the right color.

I like them. Utrecht and Groningen are a tad hard to read, but no too bad. It does make me want to see how this would look in the Belgium and Luxembourg regions with those corresponding colored army numbers.

And switch in a light blue number into Zuid-Nederland so that we can compare it to the grey numbers.

Look this cannot go on ad infinitum. This map needs the army shadows and Marval himself has said that so stop saying otherwise.

Personally I do not like the new army shadows. I think the old ones are better. I also think that you should have only one type of army shadow in a map for uniformity.

Marval I think that if you use the old army shadows for all the territories you should be done with this one unless there are other outstanding issues which I do not think there are.

I like the idea of other shaped army shadows, but those don't cut it.

to be honest i do like the idea of shaped circles but not on this map which already feels crowded i thin just throw some ordinary circles on (i know the intensive debate we have had) so we can see all the numbers clearly and get on with the next update

I'm gonna be lazy now. Without reading the rest of the thread to see if it's been mentioned, I have a suggestion. The green star on a white background looks blue. Make it red. Or switch stars. Or something. Feel free to smack me with a trout if this was already discussed.

i have to agree. i liked the no circles variation because it looked crowded, and now these circles make it more so. though these are better than the last ones.
suggestion- if you really want to use the shaped circles, is it possible to make them as transparent as your first unshaped army circles? they were just a lighter version of the colour behind them. making the shaped ones that way might help.
