I'm still waiting for the "X factor". I blew through this map with no resistance at all from all of those AI's. Kept waiting for an AI with 1000 armies or something to show up for the "X factor". I didn't even encounter an AI until turn 12 and by that time I had half the map under my control. The map was laid out nice and I liked the connections, but it was wayyyy to easy to be at this high of level. I think this map should have been in the first 10 maps to play on the list for single players. I'll give it a 2.5 star rating because of the lay-out, but can't go higher since it was like 45 minutes of playing against neutral territories, then another 45 minutes killing the AI's with my enormous amount of armies.
