At Gen Con 2017, the game seemed nicely balanced with four different countries winning four different games. Only a few tweaks remain:
- Apulia is merged in with Naples, moving the barrel (supply area) to Rome. This is done because the Italian offensive against Austria was clearly hobbled by how Italy, unlike Austria, has no port bordering the Adriatic Sea. Tyrolia was stretched to the Adriatic to prevent an automatic war between Austria and Italy. This correction is designed to make such a war possible.
- In the 5 Player game, the Adriatic is merged into the Eastern Med. It's completely unneeded.
- The "special consolidate order" uses first edition AGoT rules where there's no difference between the regular and special consolidate power order.
