Review by Perhaps
This is a good map, except for the bonuses.
Rather than the bonuses being clearly identifiable, players must randomly click on boxes outside of the territories, in order to identify the bonus boundaries and values.
Traditionally, the bonus labels are adjacent to, or are within, the boundaries of the corresponding areas that they cover. This is not the case with this map.
During game play, ½ of the time you are planning your deployments and attacks, and ½ the time you are spending randomly clicking to remind yourself about what bonus is what.
Perhaps it is easier to make a map this way? Perhaps it takes more effort to place the bonuses where we normally expect to see them? If that is the case, then more time should have been devoted to designing this map before it was released.
