also, if you tell me it sounds more Greek, i better put a k in front of every thing that should be a c. However it does not sound more Greek

dude, shut up. You are bitching about nothing.

Mr. K if you change a damn thing i will lose all respect for you.

Hell, even if it should change he better not, it makes it more fitting seeing as it is Mr K's map. He loves the K. He's Mr. K.

I'm just curious... Where were you with all these bright ideas when the map was still in development, WillGas??

Are you serious dude? I'm assuming you're greek judging by your avatar and your sig, but i'm doubting it after this comment. Maybe you're Greek and you've never heard any one speak the language, cause if you have then you'd know how absurd that is.

The Islands are pronounced "Kee-Klad-Thes", and Kyklades does a fairly good job at giving that pronunciation and stays true to how its really spelled. Cyclades makes it seem like the islands should be pronounced "Psy-Clades." How does that sound more right?

also, if you tell me it sounds more Greek, i better put a k in front of every thing that should be a c. However it does not sound more Greek

Wtf dude. If you're trying to mimick Greek using English, you probably should replace any c's with k's. But aside from that rare occasion when you might be trying to do that, no, you shouldn't.
As for me, I didn't replace any c's with k's. K's are what have always been there. I don't care if some British people decided to use a C when they first wrote down a couple of these names, good for them. They can keep using a C, i'll keep using a K. It makes no difference, cause when I read what they wrote, I know what they're referring to, and vice versa. So get over it.

Well I dont know who Microsoft Sam is, but i'm sure if you ask your grandparents what the Island group is called that includes Santorini, Mykonos, Paros, Milos (and Andros and Tinos too, but I made them they're own countries on this map), they'll tell you something that sounds a lot like "Key-Klad-Thes", and definitely not "Psy-Clades."

Sorry for three posts in a row, but...

A quick google search just turned up this.
http://www.kyklades.com.gr/
As you can see, the web address spells it my way. The banner on the website spells it my way.
Then, they have a map and its labeled your way. And later on they refer to it your way.

As you can see, it can go either way, and it doesn't really matter. Personally I prefer my way, as Banana Stomper said, I am, after all, Mr. K. And thats how we Greeks spell it, and thats my justification for why it gives it more of a Greek feel. Disagree? Oh well, doesn't make any difference.

I have not read all 9 pages of this thread, but is there some hidden power on the island of Xios? I am currently in a game where I was trying to secure Asia Minor and attacked Xios from Lydia and lost 5 armies to 1. Then the next turn I lost 3 to 1. Since the rest of the game is moving on past me I have made it my mission to take that freaking island.. I have now spent the last 4 turns deploying armies on Lydia and throwing them at Xios and nothing!

Four freaking turns and I deploy, I attack, I end my turn licking my wounds.

aaaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhhhh
