I totally agree with this. If I could suggest one thing, I would say that you should take Birmingham away from Middle England and make it a neutral SC. Then Split Bristol in half and make both halves SCs so that middle England still has 3 SCs at the start (although by then they would be more like low England). That way you can have the whole area of Nottingham, Peterborough, Don, Birmingham, Oxford, and Cambridge to carve up and make into Neutral SCs.


Ok I am working on it now

Not sure what 'this' is - is it the map on the first post, newly revised? If so, it doesn't seem to deal with the lack of neutrals.

True. But in that case, there still don't seem to be any more neutrals?

There are a lot of corners in this map, I suggest you make it clearer what is next to what. A solution is to put black boxes where the corners are, but I think is is going to look better if you change the borders around, and make them a little more rugged. Have a look at the map of Middle East as it started, then look at the final map - you'll see it looks a lot better. For the black boxes, see American Diplomacy.
Do you hear the people sing,
Lost in the valley of the night,
It is the music of a people,
Who are climbing to the light,

For the wretched of the earth,
There is a flame that never dies,
Even the darkest night must end,
And the sun will rise

I agree with this - If you take a look at the neutral SC (Perth) between Scotland and the Highlands it looks like a certainty for Scotland. If Aberdeen is adjacent to it, though, it's actually another certainty for the Highlands, since Scotland has no armies nearby to support and the navy cannot support across land, whereas a two pronged attack can be made in fall by the Highlands. Some clarification of what borders where would be a big help.

Is this new map any better, for both things?
