Group #3) Solaria; Azuran; Rowamar; Cratica; Talus; Northern Frontier; Sarle
I'm pretty sure that will prevent any of the small bonuses from being dropped. I'd like it if someone could check it though, since I'm not an expert and I didn't use a probability calculator.MrBenn wrote:Can we get an update, or a firm decision please.

I was hoping to get some feedback on this. If this works then make then Ender can make the changes and we can update.
Why is Cryagnotica part of Group #1 and not Itheria? If you swapped these two, then Itherania would be evenly split in 3 player games, and you don't give the recipient of group #1 a leg up in Solonabirsk.
Also, perhaps more importantly, I am still concerned that using only 3 starting position groups is not sufficient. You still have a 25.45% chance of someone dropping a 3-region zone, and a 9.09% chance of someone dropping a 4-region zone. With my 5-group scheme, we greatly reduce those percentages to 6.77% and 1.17% respectively.
