Long story short. 4 players game variant seems to be highly unbalanced. It's almost 80% Baratheon wins & 20% Lannister wins (in case if Pyke player invades Stark instead of Lannister).
There's almost no chance for Pyke of Stark to win if all the players are good enough.
So we tried closing all the south of the map (like the 3 player options) which is more honest to play and basically anyone can win now.
I recommend to try this option

Agreed. I will only play the 4p Variant; No GJ, No Tyrell; with Lannister, Stark, Baratheon and Martell. Pyke and Highgarden are unassailable, and there are Neutral Force counters in the Tyrell areas. This game is good, I have won once as Martell in this variant, and have seen Lannister win once as well. Albeit, I have only had the chance to play this variant 3 times. Baratheon won the other one, but it was close at least.

Closing up the south is a good way to balance the Baratheon. It is what we where doing before A Feast for Crows.
