Lose less points when you replace a player?
Should we really lose as many points when let's say. You replace a player who is in a decent position. Only to upon entering the game automatically start in a terrible position. And then lose 20 points in a game you had 0 chance of surviving in. Should you really lose those 20 points? What If you lost less points when replacing a player to make it less damaging when you start in terrible positions. What you guys think?

The IST province in modern Europe
It appears that there are two IST provinces (Istria and Istanbul). For Istria, that doesn't look like Italy's modern borders, especially as it removes Slovenia's existing coast in today's world.

Improving Fog Of War
Fog of war applies to a few maps, classic, 1998, and such; but it seems like a simple add in. How hard would it be to get FoW as a setting rather than variant property? I would think there are many maps and games I would like to try with it, but it's only on a few things. There are also some variants like Rat Wars, that can only be done in FoW. Just wondering if this was a possibility?

I've been watching a game of it and I've noticed something, you can't kill England, or Turkey. gameID=40270
England's current Economic position has it defending 6 SCs, with 3 units, and only one needs to order support hold. Turkey can put itself in the same position by builds.
This seems unbalanced to me as not only does this mean that no-one can EVER take England out of the game, but it means they have 3 bonus units out on the map proper, that can't be taken out (except by the very difficult, retreat catching).
Is this actually a good thing, and I'm just blind? Because this seems like a major flaw to me. Turkey Survives more than 80% of all games played of this variant, which is staggering compared to Germany's little better than 60% survival rate.

What do y'all think?

I think the economic map should at be hexagonal. The squares make it too easy to stalemate.

The Economic variant is flawed in that the economic area doesn't wrap. Players controlling the left and right ends only have to worry about an attack from one direction while everyone else can be attacked from the left and right. In my view, the economic area should either a) wrap so that the English and Turkish players are connected at the start of the came or b) be made into a pie-like map so that Turkey and England are connected at the start and you could move from the innermost areas (which are the top areas in the current layout) across to any other areas in that ring.

I mentioned this to Tadar Es Darden, the creator of this variant, a while ago and he, naturally, threw the problem right back at me to fix where it is still languishing.

Was the Munich Agreement a British diplomatic coup in 1938?
Neville Chamberlain died on 11/9/1940. Chamberlain's brother had won the Nobel Prize for Locarno, which has explicitly stated that the UK viewed Germany's Eastern border open for revision and was only committed to defending Germany's Western border. Other than getting Hitler's signature on an agreement that he then violate in less than 6 months, I see no other way that Chamberlain could have gotten a treaty with Poland ratified or instituted peace time conscription in a democratic society.
