|Balancing Each Map: 7/9/2019 23:01:54
So I'm playing a lot of European maps and most recently my preferable map is "Europe Big".
I know this map very well and I like it but many country bonuses are out of balance and players avoid them. So I figured out this formula to find out what should be the bonus of each country:
[Number of territories]*[Number of territories that can attack this bonus]=X
Let me give you an example. Poland has 49 territories in this map which is a lot but has bonus of 16.
Poland's bonus can be broken from 26 territories.
Pretty big value for what we are used to in this game, so I'm applying division of 20 with rounding up to make it smaller (for all countries) and Poland now is worth 64 instead of 16.
Other examples (old bonuses in brackets)
UK 38 (24)
Iceland 2 (8)
Turkey 73 (27)
Netherlands 15 (9)
Belgium 7 (9)
France 135 (31)
Russia 663 (108)
Ukraine 210 (38)
Belarus 35 (10)
Estonia 4 (15)
Norway 11 (6)
Sweden 12 (7)
Romania 19 (14)
Greece 23 (8)
And so on
I'll be testing this balancing in next couple of days so please join!
