Today, the first player to move is the last one in the standings. Especially in games with kings, this is a good advantage to the weaker player. I suggest that instead of ordering players by the rank, we order players by territory only. Right now, good players often reject alliance requests so that they can have lower standings and move first.

Yeah, whenever it was suggested to let the weaker players move first, I thought it would go by territory. +1 from me.

+1 for me on that. Something to consider with this is, players will not know where they rank unless they want to take the time to count territories. Not sure if that is good or bad, just something that will be different.

Ranking and number of provinces is the same/similar in most cases. Does this really change much? With the rankings, it's clear at what point someone's movement orders are updated, switching it to province-count only will make it not clear who has priority. If two players share the same province-count it's hard to tell. Also, could that not be used as a game-play strategy. Don't make alliances but wait. You get a small bonus by being to move earlier but it might bite you back later once everyone can attack you.

Also, keep in mind this wouldn't work for sea-battles where players own no provinces. Have yet to see a game like that though...

noble is correct here. relying on verbal agreements just to lower the ranking may come around in a bad way later on in a game.

another tactic to fiddle about with the movement order is to temporarily abandon provinces, which would be done much more often, if the ranking would be declared by nothing but the number of provinces. depends on whether you like that scenario or not :D
