Considering maps with Ulster, Aquitaine, Nicaea, and a Russian land, the following outcomes have been reported:
Russian land - players west - players east - winning team - winning turn
Podolia - Adriano, chr1sbean - Comnenus, Aida - west - 7 (should probably be discounted)
Transylvania - King_Kent, FlashGordon - ncklol, empError - east - >80
Podolia - DirtyHarry, Master - empError, SnoopDawg - west - 53
Muscovy - empError, kalle - Agrippina, Paars - east - 38
Lithuania - FlashGordon, jbf - Sargon, empError - west - 50 (Lithuania taken)
Prussia - sixamplayer, empError - Sargon, RIPPE - west - 44 (Prussia taken)
Lithuania - King_Kent, empError - sixamplayer, hallali - west - 36
Lithuania - sixamplayer, jbf/dannyray - empError, Lancelot - east - 35
Podolia - FlashGordon, gun - V_M_Molotov, empError - east - 30 (as I recall, this may have been Provence, instead of Aquitaine)
Muscovy - empError, Rrrrr - Rex, Adrien - east - 61
Muscovy - Andres, LNO - ghost, hst - west - 53 (Muscovy taken)
Muscovy - dannyray, kalle - Xuul, empError - east - 48
Ukraine - IceQueen, dannyray - empError, hst/godsent - west - 60
Lithuania - godsent/MrBeatnik, ? - Rex, empError - west - 47
Here it is conspicous that if a cap is taken, it is the Russian.
A total of 8 west wins, vs 6 east wins. Maybe the first match reported should not be considered, so then it would be 7 vs 6.
With Muscovy, there's 3 east wins vs 1 west win. With Lithuania, there's 3 west wins vs 1 east win. Ukraine and Prussia both have one defeat, and Transylvania has one victory. Podolia has a victory and one, maybe two defeats.
So as with Grenada, figures speak to the advantage of Muscovy over Lithuania. Besides a balancing with players, it may also be an effect of the unreliably small numbers.
