I don't know if it's just me, but I always have a harder time starting from the southern most starting spots (black and red). I haven't analyzed why really, but at least for black/southwest you have a lot of terrrain to traverse. The "easiest" to me seems to be north-east, probably beacuse you most often are left alone for quite some time.

Over all great map, easily my favorite!

How much are you going to change / thinking of changing?

I agree with Somenpotatis that the Red/Black start spots seem to be very hard to play from. When I take a closer look at the map in the editor, I see there is 116 cities. If you divide by 8 that's roughly 14.5 per side.

Now take a look at Black. If he gets all cities south of desert + islands to the left and island in the middle (between him and Red) that makes 14. Now compared to Yellow. If he gets all the Desert and above that's 13 with potential for 4 more on the island to the west and his cities are much more compact (close together) with much easier terrain (desert which you can move for 2 on with a scout). So it's VERY hard for Black to compete with Yellow city wise esp since Red will compete for the 2 island cities.

Now take a look at Red. If Black gets the 2 island cities then for him to get to 14 he needs all south of the Desert above him AND all 5 to the right under Orange (ie KuKorahr to Darkanghit). So he has to beat Orange and White and/or beat Black to the 2 island cities.

So it's very hard for both those sides. I think Red needs at least 1 more city near his start area in the Forest, maybe on/by the coast directly East of his capital. To keep the 116 city count and even up start areas I would remove 1 from the Desert to the right of Yellow (maybe Nedschef) so he has fewer cities since he already has much more than Black.

To also help Black/slow Yellow I would move Corinth diagonally S/W 1-2 squares so it's deeper in the hills/swamp/forest. It's too easy for Yellow to win that race across the desert and only have 1 hill move to take Corinth. Especially since Black has to deal with 3 terrain types (hill, forest, swamp) and Yellow only has Desert. I'd also suggest extending the river directly south of Yellow Capital by 3-4 squares to the NorthEast and extend the hills by the capital by 1 so that for Yellow to move to the right they must cross hills OR go south over the bridge / port on the river. This encourages Yellow to move to the West instead of racing East to easily beat Black to everything.

I would also remove the 3 Dwarf defenders that guard the towers that prevent White/Orange from getting to that middle area. It's too much defenders and no other spot on the map has this. At most 1 defender if you must have some. But the idea is to get White and Orange into that area so they can fight (this indirectly helps Red). You should also think about moving the White capital maybe up to Schirkand. This puts him slightly further from Red and also close to Teal (esp if you put a 3rd city in the Forest (by Wargast/Geltin). If you do move the Capital up there then you may want to move the tower where the Dwarfs are above the Waterfall.

You may want to make sure all the sides have reasonable access to their 14 or so cities (whatever you decide their empire roughly consists of) since that's about how many each side should be able to end up with.
