I disagree, if you had shuffled the cards in the board game and gotten an entire continent, you wouldn't complain, would you. The automatic territory selection is the same thing. It uses an automatic "shuffler" and gives you your territories in a similar way to the way that you play the board game.
I have hundreds of games logged, sry no life, and have never been dealt an entire continent.
Almost a few times, but it's super rare. I think your inflating how many times this happens to you.
Matt, I'm a bit like you and I've close to 400 games under my belt, and similarly it's been pretty rate, probably 4-5 times at most.
However, we do plan to re-check the territory distribution code to make sure it doesn't do this (as it's not supposed to). It's only happened to me on the more recent maps we've created, where there are only 2 territories to constitute a region/continent.
Noted, and for what it's worth, I only play the main map. (Just my preference)
I don't recall ever seeing anyone get an entire continent, almost, but not all of it.
If it did happen, I'd probably have the same request to not allow.
