If a lot of people feel misled, I can change it to "Baseball: The King of Diamonds". That would also help people find it in the map list.

There's a danger of first round elimination here (pitcher gets +7 = 17 troops, shortest route to mound = 1+3+1+6 = 11 troops, which makes a total of 21 troops to kill...) 17 v 21 can be pulled off with moderately lucky dice.

What's your reasoning behind this?
Industrial Helix wrote:It just looks impossible to defend effectively and I doubt the actual territories will come in to play a whole lot. Personally, I'd go for the players and hog the auto bonus rather than try an conquer anything in the outfield.... hmm, now that I think about it the map has a nice dynamic where once in the outfield players will likely head in towards the plates, which is true to the baseball in game. So if that's the case, why bother with regional bonuses at all?

In order to expand into the field, there has to be a hope of gaining more troops from bonuses than you would lose to battle, and I don't think that is currently the case, at least not in many player games. This is the reason DasSchloss is not one of my favorite maps in CC.
One other possibility is to create more opportunities to get bonuses. Maybe have the bonus for fielders increase if you have more than 1 of them (1 for 1, 3 for 2, etc.)?
