South Korea is too squashed between China and Japan.
Russia is too week here to compete with EU. What happens in Eastern Europe?
Make South Africa a power to fill that empty continent. Are we going to see neutral SCs in Africa, South America, Siberia and Southeast Asia?
On that day we’ll say to Hell: “Have you had enough?”
And Hell will answer: “Is there more?”


Second place in the first round in the Wonderful Mansion tournament with a solo in 1907.

On South Korea: If the borders are dealt with appropriately, it would be easy to bring Japan and China closer, and to seperate China and South Korea, perhaps by bottlenecking North Korea. Remember that Japan and China would benefit more from eating each other rather than South Korea, as there are more SCs up for grabs

On Russia: From my viewpoint, it would be difficult for the EU to get much of a fight with Russia, with their hands full of Americans. Going back on a previous plan, it might be better if the Russian were encouraged to look at Turkey, perhaps with the traditional fight over the Black Sea.

On South Africa: That defeats the objective of the game. This is based on military expenditure. South Africa does not fit. If that area is made SC poor, it will not have much impact.

On SCs: There will be some in Africa, South America, Mongolia and Central Asia (but not Siberia) and probably Southeast Asia also, as it would bring Australia into the game

Siberia is very rich on oil, gas, coal, lead, precious stones and iron. Most of Russia's resources come from there, over 40% of the EU's energy imports originate from Siberia. It will not be realistic to leave the area out.

Siberia is well known as a part of Russia. We can't take that away. It will have to be assumed that the oil and minerals are delivered to the cities in the area.

And leaving siberia SC-less will discourage a chinese/Japanese offensive. This way russia won't have to worry about it's eastern flank and can use all of it's units to stave off an offensive by the EU or turkey.

At the moment, though, it looks like Brazil and Australia wont do much at all until the mid game, and will then be promptly crushed by determined alliances of other players who have already built trust in each other. Perhaps the sea zones could be very large to allow australia to interact with india and china, and brazil to go to africa.

1) Boring to be Brazil and mostly Australia
2) Russia will have a super hard time, she has no chance in the eastren Eruopean front, and will have an hard time in the east.
3) South Korea will have an impossobole to win fight with Japan, and it will be hard to reach an agreement with her
4) Arab league is two strong
5) i think Turkey has no chance, Arab leauge on the one hand and EU on the other.

i think its a wonerful idea, and i know you will make it the perfect map (like you did with other).
If you dont see the idiot of Europe, its you

I believe all these problems can be solved by how we divide the board up. Which needs several posts. Which needs a forum. I'll PM Ava.

For the record, I did not design Imperial.
