    Quote from Little Racoon: “what other games do you join instead of 22p and pacific map? ” The stats actually over-state the number of games I've played because the 25 apparently includes three games that I opened, and never really joined by moving any units and was then automatically removed within 3 hours. So, yeah . . . I've only played 22 games, won 13 of them and placed second behind an ally in 7 more. I've only been crushed once in a game where I was not still on the map when it ended, and …

  • Quote from Restrisiko: “So it is logical -- and should be understandable to us -- if Bytro thinks primarily of the paying customers .. .. and I can imagine that it must be terrible for gold users (the paying customers) to constantly have to confirm their actions. It would probably scare off many gold users. ” Nonsense, Restrisiko. It would scare off no one. If Bytro is so damn concerned about scaring off gold buyers (a complete red herring), then they can add a simple option to turn off the conf…

  • Quote from Xarus: “you need to get back control over your fingers, to know what you are doing. ” That's complete and utter bovine excrement, Xarus, and you should know it. Please stop trying to defend the indefensible, especially with misplaced humor. Everyone at Bytro Labs and every game operator and every forum administrator knows this is a very real problem for the average gold user, and that Bytro is quite content to leave the situation the way it is. Many, many forum participants and experi…

  • Quote from Stormbringer50: “. . . when we got sick of fighting orphaned ai naval units. ” I actually had fun hunting down the orphaned AI ghost fleets in most games. It gave me a chance to perfect a lot of the shoot-and-scoot tactics I now employ against human players. My biggest objection was that AI ghost fleets were a huge trap for inexperienced players, and could be a random game changer when a player's navy or invasion fleet bumped into the AI ghost fleet of a human opponent (or AI) he had …

  • @Tarntootaine: Here's the rub: I rarely research BBs on the 22-player map and the other smaller maps. The games are over too quickly to justify the investment of resources, which are usually better used elsewhere. And that already assumes that my style of play emphasizes maximum resource production and minimal casualties, which means I usually have more oil than anyone else in the game, and the BBs are no worse gas hogs than heavy tank brigades (which I never use), or an extra 5-squadron wing of…

  • Quote from Last Warrior: “Damage radius is 30 km, but dont remember exaktly anymore. ” The actual damage radius of all in-game nukes (bombers and rockets) is 50 km. Everything within that radius will be damaged, if not destroyed outright.

  • Quote from Little Racoon: “(I don't really use battleships) ” Rocky, just for fun, try a stack of four BBs with 4 to 8 DD squadrons as escorts. The BBs -- especially the higher level BBs -- make great seagoing artillery. Check out the anti-ground unit stats of the L5, L6 and L7 BBs, and the BBNs are even better. If your opponent has large numbers of units in coastal provinces, you can clean out dozens of enemy units over night while your opponent is asleep. BBs, when properly stacked and properl…

  • Quote from Stormbringer50: “he still has units, tho he doesnt have land. when a player loses all his provs, he no longer appears in diplomacy. and an active player with units left still gets to play, even tho he may have lost all his provinces ” Correct. Please note, however, that this only applies to active human players, and not AI countries. Remaining units of an AI country are now eliminated immediately when an AI country loses its last province. And, if a human player who has lost his last …

  • Atomic bomber units are "one and done," meaning they get one attack and then they are eliminated from the board regardless of whether their attack was successful or not. If the attack is successful, it will inflict considerable damage on the enemy stack; if it is unsuccessful, it will inflict zero damage. Whether the attack is successful is determined by the total anti-aircraft defense points of the enemy stack that is targeted. Atomic bomber units have 30 hit points. As the total AA defense poi…

  • Quote from Metalprankster: “North America and I can’t build transport ships why?? ” March one of your units down to the sea and onto to the water and see what happens. When the unit is fully embarked (i.e.fully loaded), its icon will be converted from an infantryman, tank, artillery piece, etc., into a transport ship. So, no, you don't need to build transport ships. Researching additional levels of transport ship increases the speed with which embarked ground and air units move across bodies of …

  • Simple: server space and loading time. Any additions that slow the game down are to be avoided. If you want a "soundtrack," might I suggest you go to Youtube and create your own playlist of WW2-era songs? Here's a few suggested songs to include: 1. Panzerlied -- Germany youtube.com/watch?v=tDZjVFYwtQU 2. White Cliffs of Dover -- Britain youtube.com/watch?v=ovfQjR3iU-A 3. White Christmas -- United States youtube.com/watch?v=w9QLn7gM-hY 4. Lili Marlene -- Germany, Britain youtube.com/watch?v=Q56Qz…

  • Quote from NukeRaider33: “By grasshopper, he means little one or young one. ” Actually, for those of us Americans of a certain age, we will all remember a 1970s television show called Kung Fu, starring David Carradine. Carradine played a half-American, half-Chinese Shaolin priest who wandered the American West of the 1880s, armed only with his martial arts and spiritual training. The "grasshopper" reference is to the flashback scenes in which the Shaolin master addresses the young Carradine as "…

    Quote from Little Racoon: “It would be amazing to know MontanaBB's real COW name. I can't really find him. Here's mine ” LR, "MontanaBB" is my COW user name, both in the forum and in games. If you're looking for my statistics, you have to type in the full "montanabb" into the search dialog box before it will auto-fill and recognize my user name, apparently because there are so many other players whose user names begin with "montana." I hope you're not disappointed with what you find. Cheers.

    Quote from wayaya: “This game has some odd things to make people annoyed for example, the X factor that makes the failed side feel cheated ” It is standard West Point doctrine, when given the strategic and tactical option to do so, to only attack an enemy's defensive position when the offensive forces have a numerical and qualitative superiority of 3 to 1. That works equally well in Call of War. Personally, I go a step further: I not only want a numerical and qualitative superiority of 3:1, I wa…

  • Quote from Nooberium: “The recent increase in the cost of Infrastructure makes this strategy more attractive. ” I have not done the math since the recent infrastructure cost increases were implemented, and I will try to do so later tonight. One thing you should keep in mind, however, is that not only do L1, L2 and L3 infrastructure raise resource production 10%, 20% and 20% respectively, but each level of infrastructure also raises province morale 5%and higher province morale also contributes to…

    Quote from Restrisiko: “So that not too much server capacity is wasted for private maps the bigger maps can not be created by players. ” To elaborate on what Restrisiko wrote above, players may no longer create new games on the 50- or 100-player maps. This was the result of changes implemented earlier this year, in order to eliminate mostly empty private games that consumed too much server capacity. If you have a large number of players who want to play a specific large map, you may submit a lis…

    I am aggravated beyond belief. While trying to close the espionage pop-up dialog box, I somehow managed to use 8,000+ gold units of the 10,000 I had in reserve. This is not the first time I have complained of such accidental gold usage here in the forum, and other forum participants have complained of similar problems many, many times during my 30 months of playing Call of War. It would be nice for bytro to add a gold use confirmation button, I've said enough. 5. Please do not create threads @ U…

  • Quote from JCS Darragh: “What is the best way to break up doomsday stacks? What I mean by this is several stacks of just everything, most older players should understand what I mean. From what I've tried in the past, it seems like they are invincible and the only thing you can use to defeat them is a nuclear weapon. ” When very large stacks include everything, by definition they include numerous slower-moving units, too. Run circles around them, retake your captured provinces in the stack's wake…

  • Quote from freezy: “It appears that this display error only appears with infrastructure that was built before the balancing patch. Infrastructure which is built now shouldn't have this problem. ” Unless, of course, you're in Day 72 of a competitive 25-player historical map game, which you expect to continue for another 40 to 50 days. Why don't we just fix the problem, Freezy, instead of trying to run out the clock? I'm sure that you will eventually discover that the same "bug" is causing other, …
