One option is to fight over established nation state territories. This has been the most common model for most of humankind until the opening up of north and south America and the subsequent land rush.
The West was better organized, and smarter in that particular point in time, which has affected modern history and the current world demographic makeup, vs if the Chinese or Japanese had their crap together during those times, the world could have easily been of a Asian color. same with Arabs, Indians and Africans.
