Could the Polish Province Pomerania be Greater Poland (Wielkopolska). Pomerania is usually just the northern coast region. The area on the map Could just be called Western Poland, but the area has Poznan, which is the historic Greater Poland area.

Perhaps Lithuania could be Baltic States, as its called in World Diplomacy.

Also, what coast is F Venice on. Perhaps you can switch it with A Rome, to make the fleet and armies more functional in the beginning. A Fleet Ankara might also be useful, it would cause the same situation as in regular diplomacy. What is PRR? (in British Colombia) Perhaps it could be Vancouver. What is GBD in Mongolia? Perhaps it should be Ulaanbaatar (don't exactly know how many vowels...lol)

Hope all the input helps! Hooray, Chicago is a SC!

Seconded. I wonder if we've all pushed too hard to have Europe weakened.

This is an interesting situation right now. Does Turkey have hope if Russia attacks?

PRR = Prince Rupert... something. Or maybe just Prince Rupert. Where the centre is located now, it's on the Queen Charlotte Islands. I don't think anyone lives out there but the Haida and maybe some park wardens, lighthouse operators, or military. Google Maps shows no cities.

GBD = Gobi Desert. Maybe Ulan Bataar would be better, just because the desert doesn't sound like it has much in the way of supplies.

For the Kazakh centres, BLQ could be named for Astana (the capital), Almaty (either the country's largest city or the province), Ust-Kamengorsk (aka Oskemen, a provincial capital and good hockey city), or Karagandy (the largest province by area and second-largest by population). What did BLQ stand for? An alternate spelling of Lake Balkhash? As for ARA, it could probably be named for Atyrau or Aqtau. With Atyrau, you wouldn't even have to change the initials. To say that the Aral Sea dominates the region is becoming more and more inaccurate. Go to Google and compare the size of it on the Map and Satellite views. Scary.

By the way, Waterice man, I like the poppy.

Suggest for EU:

Fleet Rome, Army Naples, Fleet in Madrid to be e.c. (It used to be too easy for EU to make landfall in Africa; now it's the other way round)

And note that I generally use City names for Home Centres (Except when they're away from the home centre) and Country names, Province names and Geographical features for non-SCs and neutrals.

I'll update the map now.

What's happening with Reunion/DoG in the Indian? Were there any changes to make there?

And just a request for Australia, could we have all fleets rather than the single army?
Yes

Can we switch A ANL and F MRT?

This would reduce the ability of the EU to quickly strike the Brazilian mainland, while maintaining the ability to attack northern South America, and adding more of a sense of urgency to the Caribbean sea war.

I decided that the US/EU position in the Indian Ocean was worth keeping
