If you’re on a team with a leader who can’t even perform basic strategy such as picking a starting spot that’s best for your team, find a new team.
If a team is there, you can’t select it. I’d also say you have to give a 1 hex buffer.
Depends on your strategy and the layout of the map. I’m actually in the center ish and I love our spot. Right next to LD too actually. We just happen to be in a corner they don’t much care about since there is more interested things elsewhere.
I’d say: random placement for everyone, Leader can move it once. You could choose to wait until everyone else moves their piece and make an informed decision, but possibly lose your “ideal” place. Or. Move it early and possibly have a big team near you. Pros and cons. Strategy.
I disagree. If you don’t trust your team leader to make such a basic choice, that’s your issue. Speaking as a team leader, I feel it should be my choice and my choice alone. Would I speak with me team? Hell yes I would. But the actual mechanic I believe should be just mine.
I of course think there should be limitations, such as:
- Not where another team is
- Not within 1 hex of another team
- Not within 1 hex of a minor monument
- Not within 2 hexes of a major monument.
Oh look. Have a picture that shows some of the limitations I’m suggesting.
