[My Master Map](http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=8706)
566 Territories & 188 Bonuses
I still need to do a 5th sweep for missing connections.
Just want to see what you think.
If want to say something about a past map, just say the name before you give feedback.

i would find this map really annoying to play because of where the bonus squares are located. they need to be in the middle of the bonus.

This map looks good, but i must agree with [WM] x those bonus numbers are very confusing and bad located...

A general note on super-bonuses:

When multiple layers of bonuses are "nested" (each super-bonus exactly coincides with a group of sub-bonuses), please keep in mind that holding the super-bonus *adds to* (not *replaces*) the reinforcements you get for the sub-bonuses. For instance, holding all of Salem County is worth 10 + ( 2 + 2 + 3 + 4 ) = 21 reinforcements, for 15 territories (if I didn't miscount).
It gets worse when you look at the (misspelled btw) Southern New Jersey super-super-bonus. That's worth the sum of all the sub-bonuses (the partial counties) plus the sum of all the super-bonuses (the whole counties) *plus another 50*, so approximately (I probably miscounted somewhere) 151+130+50 ~= 330 reinforcements per turn, for holding a "measly" 168 territories (or thereabouts, I definitely miscounted somewhere).
In essence, the first person to secure a super-super-bonus wins. (Once you have it, you get plenty reinforcements to keep it, even against a dedicated counter-attack. Each turn you hold it, you get enough reinforcements to steamroll across your opponent(s) without much in the way of opposition.)

My advice: the super-bonuses (whole counties) should probably be worth 2 or 3 armies. The super-bonuses probably in the neighbourhood of 10, *maybe* 15. I know that looks counter-intuitive, but in my experience it works a lot better.

Yeah, I was looking into that.
Something that needed an answer but wanted other thoughts.
I've tested the map, and know that it adds up.

i want to add that this is a map that looks great (and i was hoping one would be made of the entire state after all those county bonuses, which are too small for me). i dont want to have to avoid it because of that little irritation.

Are you going to submit another 30 pieces of that map too to pointlessly clutter the map-list?

Ha, Ha, Ha, no.
Because, that would be over 67 maps.
If I could, I would change the layout of the map-list so it doesn't "pointlessly clutter the map-list".

I just clicked a random territory and happened to notice wrightstown doesn't connect to New Hanover Township, even though they clearly should.

Those new bonus values look much more reasonable. The only way to know for sure though is to playtest the map a few times against real players. If you don't mind an easy victory ;) feel free to invite me (and possibly others, there's a [special thread](http://warlight.net/Forum/Thread.aspx?ThreadID=2864) with "volunteers") for a test-game.

Sir Nick,
With our practice game over (and the new rating system in place ;) ) I was just wondering if you're ready to release, or if you still want to play another testing game...? (Apologies for being a little impatient; please take it as a compliment though, I can't wait to play more games on it!)
