Actually, that's not quite how starting positions work... each player will randomly be assigned a group, with the remaining one split up... so Player 1 could be red, Player 2, Blue, and yellow split up. The other thing to remember is that in a 3p game, each player will get one group in any case.
Sorry, I mis-spoke. I should have said that yellows, blues, and reds are starting territories, not positions. Yellow and blue and starting positions. The reds are unassigned territores which will be split among the player 1, player 2, and neutral.
As there are only two coded starting locations, three or more player games will ignore the positions and it'll be a free-for-all, as in any other map.
That is a great idea. It's a very interesting way to ensure a balanced start in a 1v1 game!
