Note: The Map is design for fog.
i try to use less wood on the center to clearly the sights, and the centralized city let once you controlled
the center, attacker will gain lots of advantage.
the fog let defense easier,so reward attack is necessary.

I like the design a lot. One problem I can see is possible STA though, because the central base is more
important position-wise, and is responsible for capturing many more properties than the wider starting

At the very least, you should move the nearby cities so that they take longer to capture for the central

I would like to see some test games on this map. The heavy forest would be interesting if it didn't negatively affect gameplay.

After much deliberation, and with the input of Sami-YXL, I have decided to put this into the GL for fog. It's a highly experimental
map style but the test games have seemed promising. I think it will be interesting for fog players to adapt to the unique terrain
layout on the map.

To be honest, I'm not sure Sonja and Sami's strength on this map.
Heavy forests are not like heavy mountains, not long fronts, but open battlefields.
I think Sonja belongs to T3, her d2d is too weak, and her SCOP performance is not so strong in other fog maps with focus
Sami is interested on this map, and she may be able to use Art and Mech well to Implementing tactics for diversified forces

I think forests are too important here for sonja to be in t3 here. Her SCOP performance here should be quite strong since
she can look to take positions in the forests and have them struggle to be broken. There are enough cities and forests that
sonjas can set up a very strong defensive position and can probably cause a lot of problems in the center.

I have not played on other maps with a heavy focus on forests (I am not sure how much weight to put into dragons in the
dark, the forest gimmick has not come into play at all in my games).

It should be fine to allow sami here, there is no hq pressure and I think she will really struggle in terms of mobility.
