The map that is the best to play on but also has great art is Ares:https://www.warlight.net/Map/19129-Ares
It is heavily underrated, so please give it 5 stars! \(^‿^)
Enumeration why it's the best map:
1. flawless territory borders and bonus borders.
2. square and round Bonus Links with no yellow frame.
3. bonus window with high detailed flags and symbols as decoration.
4. dotted connection lines that look like its hand draw with High detailed schips.
5. remaining continent collerd the same gray as warlight use in this text frame, and the light gray of the ships and dotted connection lines are the same as the gray of the territories.
6. territory names are all from the map thame or real mythical names so you get an interesting wiki page-link.
7. By making the territories all around the same size, i could make the map size smaller than Rise of Rome, while having more territories, so you can still read the figures while zoomed out.
8. map size is good for various gameplay.
9. the well balanced bonuses and distribution mode make it appropriate for auto distribution games.
