The problem with map with army circle is when you have 10 or more armies and the color code before (ie g36) it is larger than the circle, worse above 100!
So it's why I tend to prefer map without. But you have to try it with armies (including color code) on the map.
Yeah, circles can be a pain that way. The reason they would be there is that it looks kind of nice to have a circle for 2-digit armies, but they're annoying for 3+ digit armies, a pain to center, and make blue armies hard to read (that's the biggest issue). Mjinga will put together a comparison of the map with 2-digit armies with and without circles for visibility issues.

It doesn't necessarily need circles. They're mostly used when the map has lots of colors or textures that make it hard to read the armies on, which isn't really the case here. In fact, it's harder to read the armies (especially blue ones) with circles than without.
The mountains poll is gonna wrap up tomorrow...Mjinga will post up some mountains (or, as the poll seems to be currently leaning, lake/river) options based on the winners.
