Three times now I've played games using the new map where suddenly one faction's influence will spread across the entire map. The first time it happened, my faction suddenly had influence everywhere, including around other faction cities. In that same game, some time later the influence swapped to another faction but this time it left islands of influence around my cities. My outposts showed as in my control but the influence zone around them was the other nation's.
Now it happens again in my latest game
I can't reproduce it consistently but the game will often crash when I reload a save game. I'll try and post a separate report on that. This game is still buggy, though I have sympathy to the development team as there are several operating systems and versions, many drivers, etc to code for.
