I appreciate your support! Thanks for the feedback and comments.
Still working on those maps! I'm still keep it that way but I think the latest round of changes will make it seem less convoluted. It's possible I could ditch the "zone select" screen (the world map) but to me it's more of an organizational thing than a map you must navigate. I do appreciate the feedback and will keep working on it.
I agree having penalties or having to start over after the team gets wiped out is pretty harsh and makes the game much less accessible and more frustrating to first time players. This is the main motivation for the change.
