Thanks for your response dodo comander.
Earlier, I started this post after drinking two pots of coffee over the course of many hours working on my map (spending my free time doing this is driving my wife nuts btw), so my grammar was a little sporadic above. I apologize for that.
I have been successful in recruiting enough players from the public games to effectively test my "map in progress" twice. The only problems I found were two different territories which were missing one connection, so I plan to move on with further development.
Here are the test matches for any interested:
I was really surprised at how quickly I was able to find 5 strangers willing to test my map and then even further surprised at how good of sports they were in testing. I can't express the level of gratitude I feel for these folks.
