I chose for the 'Hearts of Iron IV - Asian theatre' map, because I made that map :)

That Greece map is awesome. Strategic and very very pretty, good for simulating historical scenarios.

Its difficult to rate maps because they are all so out of context on a big table esentially. Big maps vs small maps, blitz maps vs creative wonkey maps. There should be categories otherwise it is like female vs male in bodybuilding. obviusly they dont belong in the same category despite both carrying the name hooman.

Tarabonia and Green's Edge are both very decent maps but I believe there are two main contenders here, Hearts of Iron and Greece. Greece is a great and stategic map, but I wonder why the values of superboni differ that much (attica is 4 for 27 and central greece 1 for 25). I also agree with one review that I would've split Lesbos and Rhodes in multiple territories. I would also have included the holy mountains. However a great map and a serious contender to HOI.

I'm a big fan of large maps and of Hearts of Iron IV and especially the way Goldtank depicted it. It is a great and strategic map with, in my opinion maybe a few flaws. Some bonuses are extremely big compared to others (Jabalpur in India and most bonues in the Sovjet Union) which makes it very hard to complete a bonus when starting there. The territories also seem a little pixilated (I don't know how else to say it). However it is a great map and that's why my vote goes to Hearts of Iron.

The territories also seem a little pixilated because thats exactly how it is in HOI4.

The HoI4 map is epic in scope, but I love the visual style of Tarabonia. It's just the right size for map of the week games, too, so I'm not too happy to have Greece compete against it.

I tried to explain that in the map description, but perhaps not clearly enough so I'll make a longer effort here. In this map I'm using a system where each bonus gives as many armies as the number of territories minus 2. This has the effect of causing a great income disparity between large and small bonuses. In the Northern Aegean, for instance, there are three bonuses of three territories each, giving a total of 3 armies for 9 territories. In contrast, Thessaloniki is a 9-territory bonus that gives 7 armies. Sure, it takes longer for that bonus to come into effect than either one of the three bonuses of North Aegean, but the difference is still staggering and this happens, to some degree or other, across the map. That's where superbonuses come in.

Attica has 27 territories and their assorted bonuses give the player 15 armies, for a ratio of 0.55. Central Greece has 25 territories and their assorted bonuses give 17 armies, for a ratio of 0.68. Without superbonuses, a player can get more armies for fewer territories by owning all of Central Greece than all of Attica. But if we add 1 army to Central Greece and 4 to Attica, then the total army to territory ratio becomes 0.7 for Attica and 0.72 for Central Greece. Done across Greece, this normalizes the income given by all superbonuses to around 0.7 armies per territory.

I have a version under development where I split Rhodes and Lesbos into more territories, but I'd prefer to keep the Holy Mountain separate. I'm just waiting for any more ideas, comments, or mistakes pointed out to me before I make it public.
