I just played this map, the shape group have no bonus on their own, making them pointless to have. It would be better to either eliminate all but the helipads, or to give each of the shape group a bonus on their own. So if I own all of one shape group I get a bonus of 1 army, and if I own 2 shape groups I get 3 or 4 armies, and if I own all the shape groups I get 5 or 6 armies. Right now they are just annoying territories.
But the rest of the map is excellent.
All of this was debated already. The reason they are small is the tactical advantage the helipads give. If the group also had high bonuses, the helipads would become even more dangerous. Believe me, the Foundry discussed this, it was voted on and the map is the result.
I am glad you like the map.
Do you know about what pages the debate was on? I still think they are worth pretty much nothing. I understand what you are saying, and that makes a lot of sense to me, but I still think if you control a continent you should get a little bonus. So I thought of this. Each shape group is worth 1 army, when you control the whole thing. That's still a pathetic bonus, and not worth taking over, except for the heli pad. If you control 2 shape groups you get 2 bonus armies, and then if you control all 3, you get a bonus of 5. The reason for 5 in the end, is because of the number of places you can get attacked from. And if you only controlled those, chances are the world is fighting against you, and it would be impossible to hold them anyways. With what bonuses you've given them, it's better to take out the shape groups all together, and just have the helipads there.
