Review by Tyrion on 4/20/2013.
This map looks fantastic, nice job on the graphics. Playability is rather low, though. I find the whole right side of the map to be essentially useless. If you have large enough income/armies to try for the huge bonuses, you should have already won the game anyways. Ignoring that, the real problem is that Zone Entrances 1 and 6 are far overpowered. They have larger income, are isolated from the other players, and have a built-in tactical advantage with the 2 army bonuses. By the time they reach other players, they have a stack of more than 50 armies and an equal or greater income.
edit:This is based on a 6 player FFA. I could imagine situations a 3v3 could get interesting, but I still think the map is a little small for serious competition in the zone. Maybe you could add 3v3 distributions:
123 vs 456 : 124 vs 356 : 135 vs 246

Very much enjoyed, must warn that 1 and 6 can get screwed over in certain gametypes

very strong starting bonus
makes it unfair

very good potential, though not a single player map for sure. only suggestion would be to make the zone worth more. with all the negative bonuses its still a net -26.

The top and bottom get completely screwed since the players next to them can just blockade their entry into the map. I have no idea why anyone in their right mind would play this.

Great looking map, but I dont understand the bonuses ;) Is there any special combination of settings that make them meaningfull?

Interesting how you used the negatives in the map, made for a more calculated game, but still pretty simple.
