That wasn't even insulting you. Seriously. Picks 5-8 were a MILLION times better than 1-4.
I haven't read the chat, but you need to co-ordinate picks in team chat, so you all spread out through one superbonus each.
i.e Player one puts eight picks in Hispania superbonus, or 4 (such as 1,3,5,7) in Hispania and 4(such as 2,4,6,8) in Magna Africa. Player two puts picks in another two superbonuses. Player three does the same.
You have now:
Covered most of the map Can expand a lot faster Denied the enemy most of the superbonuses free, to get them they HAVE to fight you.
