Correct, where did I say the map is too large for 5v5? You are only picking 10 spots (total) on a map with 83 bonuses. That seems way too low.
I am testing some 5v5 on that map right now with LEA people. Here is my template if you want to use it:https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?TemplateID=568396
It probably needs additional tweaking, but it seems to play OK so far (we are only 3 turns in).
