This map has serious potential, but I did not enjoy playing it at all.
The bonuses are severely imbalanced. Several buildings grant a bonus army for controlling a single territory. Other bonuses, such as the athletic complexes, are too spread out for any one player to be able to control until the end of the game, at which point there is little need to do so. In short, the only viable strategy is to horde single-point strongholds and gradually wear down the opposition - not very compelling gameplay.
There are a surprisingly large number of territories - frequently art and theatre buildings (any commentary there?) - that are not part of any bonus. Unless they are strategically placed, there is no point to controlling them.
I don't mind a huge superbonus for the parking lots, but how about also having smaller, regional parking lot bonuses?
Finally, there is a connection not show on the map between Benerd School of Ed. and Bio Sciences Center.
I look forward to what the make does to improve this map.
