We are doing a 12 v 12 game and of course the colors are confusing. What would be nice is that when you click on a territory, it shows the team name in addition to the player name that controls it (on the left hand side). Then you could easily tell what is friend or foe when the colors are so mixed.
Didn't know you could highlight teams, thanks Iron.
I don't know what you are trying to say Arun. It is normal fog, so I can see the # of armies next to me. In other fog methods you could use that to deduce who is on your side, but that still requires looking around the map.
Iron's method will probably be the best method (clicking on team name).
