I am wondering if we are missing the boat…what if we could get rid of the problem of where did you start and who is going to what island.
What if instead we took the main island and changed it to a small island with 25 teams around the border who all had docks.
Then created 5 islands from low value up to high value and placed docks on each island.
These docks would not be able to be taken over…they are a free gate for any team who wishes to step foot on the island and take their chances.
Each dock would be attached to 3 hexes so no one can come in and simply cut you off from your lands.
This now gives every team the ability to attack every other team and they also have the ability to attack anyone of the islands.
This would also give every team the choice to attack any level island, this means the big spenders will most likely head to the high island while the lowers can head to the small value islands without becoming caught between two big spending teams.
I think this kind of a setup would make this event a little more enjoyable for all the players.
