This map is the biggest pile ofshit in the campaign so far. No matter in which direction you go you will find AI enemies. But one of those AI enemies is always allowed to take over the entire north including all islands raking in big units while the player has to fight the two idiot AI in the south.

I don't mind a challenge but I find these rigged games disgusting, especially since I cannot just skip them.

Wonderful map, really well balanced. There's a choice of island-hopping or building the Australian mainland, which leads to a great show-down. The lay-out is beautiful and progressive, with only the one, rather unavoidable, cul-de-sac that is Japan. One missing link: Gorontalo -> Halmahara

Thanks for letting me know about The Missing connection :) To be honest I think it was just a bit of carelessness that led to japan being so linear. It was the first island I drew, and I ended up just not connecting it to anything else I guess :P. When I do an update I may either add a connection to Western Pacific or remove it completely.

Really hard to beat on 4 player (as in the Single player level 'Feeling Blue'-- you v 3 aggressive AIs--- quite a few tries, but very rewarding to get it right!!

Review by Xerces on 5/17/2018.
Very hard, but beat after about 10 tries! Rewarding to finally beat this pain in the ASS! hint, go up through new Zealand to take all of asia, hold the entry points in Oz on the way. While doing that, take the west OZ territories up the left. Then when you bring your armies down from asia sweep down through OZ attacking weaker areas to gain more armies. start to build a defence in Tasmania to stop the enemy getting through round to asia. GOOD LUCK! :P

NONSENSE. That method doesn't work because you don't have enough armies to go up the west OZ territories AND go up to take asia through New Zealand. This map has made me quit playing this game. If I can't win, I can't play any more maps so there is no point in playing anymore.

Review by Nathan on 3/8/2016.
Solid map. There is room for improvement, however.

First, Japan is too isolated. I recommend a second link, probably from Kanto to some point on New Guinea or Papua New Guinea.

Next, I don't think of Sri Lanka as part of Oceania, and I think it makes the Sumatran corner too valuable. I would eliminate Sri Lanka.

Third, a link from Brisbane to New Caledonia would be both realistic and helpful.

Also, the bottom third of the map is empty. You don't need it. Rotate the global view northward (bringing everything down) until it's centered about on West Papua. Then you can expand the size of all the territories, some of which are very small and hard to distinguish and/or view.

Finally, and this is very nitpicky, technically there is a lot of Oceania (southern Pacific islands) that is omitted from the map.

Tough map, race up the coast of WA to hold a territory in Asia and push east to take Australia

Review by GameDaddy on 12/10/2017.
Unlike the other maps so far (except the first boss map). This appears to be a "One Solution Attrition Map" where every move must follow a specific pattern of play. It is frustrating to replay game after game to find that pattern. I'll find it, only because there are maps I want to reach beyond it. But my chain of attachment to this game is broken by this map and I am looking for another good match to tak it's place. Giving an optional set of starts would really help.

It's very lopsided. The one AI always has the advantage and eventually the overwhelming numbers to win by attrition. If human player could start closer to the mid map it would be more fair. My opinion..

What a fucking pain in the ass. I guess the map is great but since I can not win against these super aggressive and overwhelming AI's it's just making me disliking the game. It seems that I need 100 troops and even that wouldn't be sufficient. Please balance the starting points or the AI or the map .. I don't know, but this is making me stop playing the game.

Nice map but impossible to play. You start on Australia and either go North, where an AI will be hold you off while growing immensely strong. Or go east to the AI born to lose but always dragging you down. When you do kick its ass, the north player starts taking you down. Cant skip it. Will go for other game.
