At first, this map looks a little messy, but it's really not at all bad!
The choke points are well placed and the small bonuses within bonuses are strategic too. Could use some minor changes for balancing.
Otherwise, good map, I like it, 4/5 from me! Keep up the good work!
Thank you for the encouragement! I'm glad that you find this map strategic! Strategy has been the thing of few which can give me satisfaction so strategy is certainly involved in this map. However, as you pointed out, I'll change it a little so that every player has equal opportunity to win. Recently I also find out that this map doesn't work well when fog is off or someone is booted. I'll try to fix that too.

Nice little map! 3/5
It is little but I wouldn't say it is nice lol at least the art could be improved.

This is a surprisingly strategic little map. A very few number of territories can generate a hefty income, meaning gameplay can remain quite hectic long after it would have ended on most maps this size.
I give it four stars because I am not a fan of isolated starting areas that are set to explode onto a small common area and because I tend to dislike it when some territories are not assigned bonus values without what appears to be a good reason.
"Isolated starting areas that are set to explode onto a small common area" was exactly the thing that was requested by my friends. :P This map was made specifically for my friends since they didn't want to play a WarLight game for more than half an hour. Thanks for trying this map :)

Ok, fine, it's not the prettiest of the maps (though the minimalistic look makes it extremely easy to read and thus enjoyable). But it's fun, oh, boy!
It is presently unbalanced, at least for the only distribution available. This could be fixed (with relatively little effort) by adding a 4-player distribution limited to the four 6-bonus.
Thanks for this little map!

Sorry I will add balanced distributions ASAP. I forgot distributions entirely and the current only available is automatically created by WarLight. lol... I'll provide more enjoyable distributions in the updated version which I'll make later today. Thanks for the feedback!
