I do believe this is the last game I will ever join without fixed starts. Now the question is just how soon do I go AI...

I was under the impression that Ferrosol modified the map to grant all land starting positions at least five neighbor provinces-- five land, or four land and one sea.
Though, I have not personally checked the map setup.

I made sure that no potential starting province had less than 3 land connections (for land provinces) or 3 sea connections (for sea provinces) beyond that I set up no fixed start provinces. Next time I start a game it will be with a map with fixed starts on or at least I will find someone with a nodding acquaintance with map modding.

Raiel, I drooled when I saw your starting position. What the heck are you complaining about? You have 6 land provinces Adjacent to your capitol, 1 water province too. 3 mountain,1 forest. What is there not to like?

Interesting how quick everyone is to assume they know why I don't like random starts... more interesting is that no one (other than Ferrosol) has posted something factually accurate. (Rytek may want to re-examine the nation selection.)

umm, arent you playing Shinyuma? The original sign up post says you are... Oh, I looked again. That is a second fortress. I mistook it for your capitol. My apologies.

I stated that I had not personally checked the map setup--that is quite factually accurate.

As for the cause of your dislike: I surmised that it was either adjacent province quality or that you were placed very close to another player.
I attempted the courtesy of not publicly assuming you were unable to defend yourself in an early war.

One neighbor starting within 3 provinces of my own would be dissappointing, but two is just absurd. Especially when both neighbors have little choice but to expand into territory that would have been mine without contest had I not been pinched.

This just isn't fun - I handicap myself enough by rarely (if ever) playing the same nation twice and trying to go with builds and nations that are not recognized as top-tier.

Muse: Assume whatever you like. It's a game.
