Misnamed territory

#1 Post by KCelec » Mon Nov 04, 2019 6:43 pm

Hi guys,

In the World Diplomacy IX map, there is a territory named "Sea of Othoksk", while its exact name is "Sea of Okhotsk".
cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_of_Okhotsk.

How about 'England' which should be Great Britain, or 'Turkey' which should be Ottoman Empire.

And we all know that 'Wales' doesn't really include Cornwall.

Bulgaria got a bit of Aegian coast in about 1912, but this is an example of pragmatic redrawing for the map and gameplay on land; coast or not on land Bulgaria does effectively block Consntinople from direct access to Greece.

You can call it the Thracian coast if you like.

Yes, but we speak about 1901! There some mistakes in other places too as for how things were in 1901.

To which are inaccurate too!
I guess some things have been for the game's balance.
