I have been playing quite a bit of Biomes of America lately, a beautiful map with crazy different gameplay employing progressive bonuses. For those who haven't tried it, give it a shot.https://www.warzone.com/Map/30404-Biomes-Americas
I would like to introduce it to my friends and play it 3v3, but my friends and I prefer to play random spawns (random distribution). Does anyone have any suggestions on how to set up the distribution on Biomes for balanced play with random spawns?
Currently the 3v3 settings are 3x4 per player, on a map with full distribution (154 territories) with 120 wastelands, leaving a total of 34 potential starting spots. Teams start with 3 gift cards and 3 sanction cards.
p.s., Yes, I understand that manual starts are a huge part of the game, especially with the Biomes of America template. However, in team games, especially 3v3 team games, manual picks are problematic. There is often quite the struggle to coordinate picks at the start of the game, which would only be worsened on a template like Biomes. Moreover, one player's poor picks can destroy the game for a team. Often it is just easier to play random distribution and accept that quite a few games end up being uneven based on spawns. At least you get to stay friendly with your fellow players :)
