For starters, love the map Kaba. That being said maybe the fact that The English Channel is a killer neutral should be placed in the key and not way off in the corner. Many do not see it up there.

Hi NP. Thanks!

Well, my feeling is that the legend board is quite overcrowded already, so positioning that piece of info (and abbreviation legend) near the location on map makes it more direct.

One of my favorites. Only thing is that there should be some more bonuses for the other 2 muslim territories. You get a Muslim bonus for up to 5 of their symbols but theres 7 of them so if you have more then 5 you are just taking them from your enemy, victory condition, or just to have another territory. And one other problem is Wales should have about 3 men. Theres not much need to have the British starting player spend on average 5 to 6 men for a bonus of 1 army per turn. It opens up the 2 bonus for Cyprus but it still should include fewer men. All in all though i really like it. Just those two minor problems and i'd say its ready to come out of Beta.

Thanks Lux! :)

Jman thanks for your input, indeed 7 Muslim bonuses for a maximum combination of 5 – I wouldn’t want those bonuses to become overrated. As for Wales, that was widely discussed before and lots of arguments were put on the table leaving the actual status as the best option - we don’t want to make England starting position too advantageous.

.. although it´s more than a little weird that Cairo is located on the Sinai peninsula. :?


I see the big map has been corrected now so that the city of cairo roughly is on the border between cairo and alexandria territories.
This is a good improvement, but it looks like you only fixed it on the big map?

The small map still has the real location of cairo as part of the alexandria territory.

Can someone confirm if victory is achieved as soon as a player holds the territories defined in the victory conditions OR does the player need to hold those territories for one turn and then win the game at the start of their next turn?

Thanks
Geoff

Just so you know, geoff@xtra.co.nz, this is true for any map having a victory condition.

Map looks good. Definitely more balanced than before. I think it needs some more time in beta for us to all get used to the changes since christmas break was probably a little slow.

The more I play this map, the more I enjoy it because it has some amazing gameplay to offer, and this is especially true for team games.

However, the Legend is very confusing and does not describe the bonuses very well. It is a very difficult map to pick up simply because it is so hard to understand the legend with all the one way attacks and various bonuses for holding 1 or 2 regions.

As far as I can tell there hasn't been much discussion since the changes went live at the end of December?
Are you contemplating any further changes to the map?
