Opinions? Comments? Death threats?


If looking for balance, it makes sense. However, the main balance issue of European maps is that they have corners and don't allow for flanking manoeuvres to befall on well dug armies on those corners.

The bridge between Germany and Scandinavia is very short, and I really don't see how a removal could be justified. As for the Den-UK, its removal would be sensible, as Norway is actually closer to the British mainland and the islands have no bridge to Germany.

About the death threats, I cannot make up one original enough to submit, apart from promising you the usual slow and painful death and terrifying laughs that self-respecting villains _must_ bring to any opponent.

Since we are talking borders & territories, I have a few opinions and doubts about the world map (45 territories).

1) Why is there a bridge between Siberia and Canada? While this is a useable route for missiles and airplanes, I hardly think it can be used by armies crossing the ice pack.

2) Since there is a South Africa - Argentina link and a Chile - NZ link, what about adding some sort of Pacific Islands territories linked to Japan, the Philippines and the USA?

3) Europe is divided into plenty of small territories, the same could be done with the USA... Or at least it could be split into West Coast and East Coast, or even East, South, North West and South West. The same could be done with Canada. This way wars in America could be as interesting as wars in Europe.

Next time you ask for opinions, think twice about it .
