Note for developers - many more players see the same points. But not all use the forum.
My english is to bad for a full post, but the others tell enough. less graphic, a bit more simple, clear colors. For strategy you need a fast look to handle your war.
One example - 500 inf against a city. split them into 10x50...can you give orders to every single army, or did you see a unclickable bush of white labels?^^
2. zoom a half out. If you have a mech, rider or tank in your city (enemy city) - you cannot see industry, port, castle, whatever...
for this look you have to zoom in, every city.
