Now we go in to the past. romania was minor power the same as Poland or Bulgaria or the small countries of Croatia and Serbia. This is a game and you can desing any maps you like, but why would you have a region called Sofia between Bucharest and Moldavia?

Otherwise. I think that it will be a good variant, maybe the ajor powers could control some minor powers to make it balanced.

I wasn't going to get THAT picky (YET). but if we are, then the space he called "Sofia" should be Bucharest. The space he is calling Bucharest should be called Constanta.

And if we are following the convention that SCs inside a power are named after cities, then Moldavia should be called Chisinau. (Inevitabley to be massacred as Chihuahua.)

When playing at war, always remember the origins of war:
1) I raid your cave to steal food and kidnap your women.
2) You raid my cave to steal food and kidnap my women.
3) Someone's kid gets hurt.
4) It all goes downhill from there

It's beginning to look like Versailles especially with the suggestion of having major and minor powers. Why not just play Versailles which is already fully supported on the site?

3) CALL THIS 2A: "Yugoslavia" has no place on this map. Read some history. The conflict between Croatia and Serbia is one the most interesting subheadings of the War

Actually, this is false. This map starts in 1937, and Kingdom of Yugoslavia fell apart due to internal instabilities and with help from Fascist countries in 1941, by creating so called NDH("Independent" State of Croatia, which was a puppet state of Fascist powers), and splitting interest spheres between Italy and Germany. So only after 1941 those "interesting subheadings" can be applied, who knows how one player could have changed history from 1937 ;).

Technically, youre correct ( I think. I didnt bother to look it up.) However, your statements support my argument, in my opinion.
