I'm actually playing the map, and think it's interesting. I think, though, that there should be "continents", i.e. if a player is able to control all three lanes in a zone, he should for instance get 1 troop extra. I am beginning to suspect, though, that the best strategy in the game is just amass all your troops in one region and wait until you can strike multiple rounds. Trouble with that is, of course, that you don't get any spoil, and may lose in the end.

I just joined a game like this and after looking through this discussion some, I'm dissapointed that I didnt try and find a game that had spoils. Though it seems like the game plays well with fog of war.

I was doing my first attack of the day, first roll: fine, second roll on same place: ILLEGAL ATTACK??!! and it ends my attacks for this turn (as punishment?). I have played this map before without a problem. Pretty big glitch. Not using this map ever again. To bad, its a great map.
The move was:
Attacking from DIOCLETIAN middle lane to ELAGABVLVS outer lane. Upon 2nd attack roll glitched.
If this was just my own misunderstanding of the rules, forgive me and flame away. :P

It's not the map's fault.

I think you have captured the essence of the roman chariot race...its anybody's game at anytime, position and timing are essential...being in front, not always the best place to be! Nice job, going to play it now if I can!

This is the only map of its kind. If you can move in both directions then it would not be a Circus Maximus
