This map is designed for quick 2v2 or 1v1 games. Using normal settings for a 2v2 (random warlords, 3 picks per player, 4 armies per starter, etc), with no cards, will give a feel similar to the 3v3 ladder, only even more brawly, because:
(1) The large bonuses have not been weakened (c.f. Italy, Germany or Turkey, among others, on the Europe map). Each bonus gives two fewer armies per turn than it has territories. Therefore, it will sometimes be a valid strategy to try for a large bonus.
(2) There is no single-bordered, high-value region equivalent to the islands. Therefore, the choice of bonus to pick at #1 depends heavily on the initial distribution. The majority of bonuses could be contenders in the right circumstances.
