I imagine that the ideal map for introduction of the factory would be the one 
where playere would have a few troops and an empty factory to capture, and 
computer would have many troops. Imagine desperation of a new player... 
followed by excitement with new possibilities :)

I didn't knew that, sorry.

About the same. Managed to win even though I foolishly lost both helicopters 
while trying to prevent the computer from capturing the factory. The computer 
may have more attack vectors, but they have to merge into one on the bridge 
in front of my base which is virtually impassable. What's with the red dots 
on the mountains?

To sum it up, sorry for bothering you, and I think that, if it is early in the 
game, the original map is OK. I'll try to make my proposed 
factory-introduction map.
