There are three types of terrain - grassy, sandy, and snowy (all 3 orig. Civs)There is also a small walled city and a hades realm, not to mention a marsh!
Lots of space mountains, and rivers. Plenty of resources, and all spots are pretty fair.

LAg - 6 player map and I flatten all the water ways and some elevations a bit more
In terms of balance - I toned down the amount of fish in that area and a bit of the hunt. Other wise I think it is fine. (needs more testing though)
Yes knowledge of the map helps, but I made the map and even though I have superior knowledge I had lost to a team who 4v1 me :) This is very much ment to be a team effort map no matter 3v3 2v2v2 - I added a Caladria for each player :P And I placed 3 Lighthouses at the river entrances!
I find that stacked gold mines actually help the noobs who put way too many villagers on a gold site. I can place up to ten villagers on most sites and not have pathing issues :O I might change it on further updates. If more people complain
The pirates really cannot destroy a transport ship :) But i took them out and added two relics underneath the tents at the pirates camp!
With this new update I also triggered the plenties in troy so that when you conquer that city the plenties are usable :D (Now people might actually take the time mid-game to conquer it :D Not to mention all the gold the city holds)
