Hello I just created a new map. I'd like to know what you guys are thinking about it.
http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=10322
In order to get bonus you have to conquire lines of territories in any direction. The bigger the line, the bigger the bonus. All the bigger lines consist of smaller ones. E.g. if you have 3 territory line, you'll get bonus for it and additional 2 bonuses for smaller 2 lines.
Current values of lines:
5 territories line: 4 armies
4 territories line: 3 armies
3 territories line: 2 armies
2 territories line: 1 army
Should I reduce them? Or should I add some other bonuses like corner squares or center square? I want that final version would be well balanced.

I would also like to test this map with anyone who is willing to help me improve it.

I dunno seems too boring for me perhaps if it was bigger and you made each bonus different shades of 1 colour and it will be better and is it public.

Ironheart, your second argument doesn't make sense. All bonuses overlap, so it would be impossible.
Here are my points of criticism:

    * The squares are not placed well. You should align them properly, using a grid.
    * The bonuses are made such that your income expands exponentially. With 1 territory you get zero (extra) income, with 2 1, with 3 4 or 2, with 4 4, 6, 7 or 10, and so on. Your income gets in the hundreds when you have around 15 territories. Your income rises so fast it will be determined from the start who wins.
    * I don't underestimate the work you spent making all the bonuses, but exactly because of that system, I would never play it.

Lookig at the map, I would think that it needs to have the territories wrap around to balances some of the positions.
