I'm having a blast this season.
I like the variety of settings
Ditto. However, it might be possible to improve the template:
-add attack only & transfer only
-add airlift cards (maybe a la France LD from RT ladder)
-maybe select a map that is slightly bigger an has either a single landmass or more than 1 landmass tying for largest.
As others have commented this map is biased towards the Eurasian landmass with these settings. Eurasia can be dominant even with multiple wastelands.
In top games we're frequently seeing both players putting all 6 picks there. These games are interesting but typically short and influenced somewhat strongly by first pick.
In top games where 1 player ends up with all picks in the Americas, in all cases I've seen they lose. Maybe the Americas can win with an ideal wasteland/warlord layout, but such a layout is not common.
