Description

World War I was "The War to End All Wars". It began with the assisination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand I of Austria, and many overlapping alliances soon broke out into war. The war lasted from 1914-1918. Its combat saw the introduction of new weapons such as poisonus gas attacks, tanks, as well as the utter destruction of towns and natural landscapes into virtually nothing. The Armistice made would spur about another world war. This map depicts the time period, with historically accurate bonuses for nations of the time period. I created this map trying to keep bonuses of the nations rational and close to the numbers of troops deployed by the belligerents (in millions). The map is meant to also be cooperative for roleplay, and is packed with bonuses. If you have something that I forgot and need to fix, please send me feedback on it.

Review by Nathan on 11/14/2013.
I can't say for sure if this is the absolute best map I've ever played on, but it is definitely among the elite. Fantastic job!

A couple (very minor) criticisms:
- It can be difficult to tell which territories are connected by the sea links. Specifically, I thought Cornwall connected to Leinster at first glance (instead of Munster). I had similar issues with Albania and Basilicata, Cyprus and Aleppo, and Piedmont and Corsica.
- There should be a visual link between Sicily and Cyrenaica.
- I'm just curious as to why there is no link between Great Britain and Norway.
- Finally, while I like how the bonuses are all laid out very clearly in the legend along the left side of the map, it would be nice to also have the bonus markers next to the territories themselves. As it is, I had to zoom out and/or pan over a lot when planning attacks to make sure I was focusing on the right territories for capturing my next bonus.

But once again, absolutely terrific work!

Thanks for this map, bro exactly what I was looking for to farm some random newbies. The map is imbalanced towards Middle East / Balcans and since they couldn't see the bonuses my opponents kept picking some nonsense like the UK. They had like 0 idea what was hitig them when I deployed like triple their income when we first met. I rate your map a 5/5 and as a bonus you get the "farmers' friend" gold medal.

Review by TonySabs on 9/9/2014.
It's a fun map, but a bit hard to follow. The naval links can be a bit difficult to decipher. For example, while the map appears to show a link between Leinster and Cornwall, the actual connection is between Munster and Cornwall.

This map was great. I played it with my WW1 class and we were able to nearly excatly simulate the real one. Except for berlin taking over France and Spain. Great must play map. Good for simulation/diplomacy/and teams. Good luck!

Large map, potential for a lot of momentum swings or build up of epic armies.

I hate how the bonuses are located at the far left of the map. Very inconvenient and should be changed.

Review by Naram-Sin on 6/28/2015.
I'm pretty used to missing connections on others maps, but the fact that existing ones aren't visible (e.g. Sicily-Cyrenaica) is a major flaw for players not used to this map. Apart from that, it's quite nice.

Review by Dirk Lightning on 9/24/2015.
Not fantastic for team games as there are some bonuses that over lap and can make working out who would should have what more tricky.

As a single game it wokr really well.

Review by EliotK on 10/27/2015.
Nice medium sized map for diplomacies. Good connections, but it should have a few more territories and bonuses should be higher. 8/10.

Review by Kektus on 6/2/2016.
Fantastic work. The faster travel on the Mediterranean is nice and realistic, and the inclusion of African colonies as a source of Entente armies is a great addition. I've tweaked the armies a bit myself, but the map itself is fabulously enjoyable to play.

Review by Robert Lee on 4/12/2017.
This was definitely not one of those maps where you get too many bonuses, it was just the right amount. It took me 5 attempts to beat the game on the default single player settings.

Review by Halthekoopa on 6/22/2017.
A Great Map that has Accurate Borders of the First World War, it has several Bonuses that Allow for a Nation even without all their Territories to pose a Major Threat, With 6 Players it's Simply Amazingly Fun and Addicting. but with more than that it tends to get really Hectic, really fast. At some point the Country's Borders become so skewed that it's incredibly hard to tell who's who without Assigned names. Other than that, Great map.

That's what it would look like if Germany won the second world war.After that they would go in along with the Japanese army coming from the west (from the Pacific Ocean)to go in the conquest of the United States.
