    Quote from Lukenick: “Besides landmines are not related to watch towers, therefore it's off topic. ” Quote from Diabolical: “This actually has sparked another idea for me, though. Perhaps there should be a new function/feature that can be done in a province. It would be employed in the same manner as constructing a building and would occupy the building process while it is done. This new feature would be to deploy landmines. ” You see, I know it was off-topic. That wasn't the point. I said that …

    This is similar to something I've proposed/requested, before. But basically, you want a building that acts like a permanent garrison of an Armored Car. That is easily achieved by using an Armored Car anyway. A simpler suggestion is to just have an outpost building that extends view range....only. Let it be increased for higher levels (up to 3?) and make it relatively difficult to destroy by Artillery (small targets are harder to hit) so as to prevent the advantage of early warning to be negated …

  • Quote from K.Rokossovski: “Quote from Diabolical: “I hate to be the one to say this, but I find your poll too wordy...and not simple enough. Heck, if "I" don't get it, who else would? I'm the king of long and wordy, here. And I say your poll is too unintelligible. Why don't you refine it, simplify it, and then restart it as a new poll after doing so? Sorry, not trying to bust your balls, here. ” Oh man... coming from you, I really LOVE LOVE LOVE this remark!!! ” Yeah, I'm thinking about adding t…

  • Quote from Kanaris: “You don't even see the contradiction in your own words. When something has limited use (as you you claim above) then by definition its NOT useless. ” BRAVO!!! Well, said. Quote from Lukenick: “The idea for having infrastructure for infantry was stupid I know, I was just thinking of making infantry easier to build and, well that would make it easier, but yes I agree it's a stupid idea. ” Actually, it's not that stupid of an idea. You're trying to come up with ideas to help. A…

  • Quote from BeerBelly: “No good/great player uses militia, they just don't. ” There you go, starting this conversation right off with an unjustified claim. I use Militia...some of the time. And I find them very useful in several situations. Among them, is escort duty for that unit that you said was the only one slower than it, the Railroad Gun. Sure, Militia are pretty sad on the battlefield -- especially against bombers and tanks -- but they do take the heat off the RR Gun in their primary role.…

  • Quote from cerealnerd: “Quote from Maximilianvs: “Quote from K.Rokossovski: “Quote from Maximilianvs: “And you can't trust in anybody (with a few exceptions), because most players break NAPs. ” Heh... I wonder who gave that example...? ” The problem is not Naps braking (most of players broke Nap today at pl). The problem is that some players do informal coalitions, and they atack 3 vs 1. So this game is very dirty and unequal and I am really tired of this (as many others players are too) ” Ditto…

  • Quote from Diablo Mayor: “Sorry, you lost me about 3 sentences into the second paragraph. I usually don't like to read novels on forums. Any cliff's notes of this available? ” Just jump to the first paragraph of the third section....8th. paragraph in total. I know this is not the preferred method of making requests or reporting problems, but my conversational format is telling a story about the problem. And to any that are willing to listen, I'm kinda pouring out my soul, here, as the problem ha…

  • That's what all the white space and the big print is for...as well as this: -------> ~O~

  • Yeah, so here goes. I guess people can't always understand my way of leading in a discussion. As it happens, I will not be choosing to use the chat feature in Call of War, anymore. My reasons will not be discussed here. But suffice to say that, despite my attempts to get along with certain people in the chats, we just don't see eye to eye, and the potential for conflict has taken away from my ability to both enjoy the game as well as use the chats as a good platform in which to communicate with …

  • Quote from VorlonFCW: “Quote from Diabolical: “Now, if you allow exceptions for pictures uploaded to third party websites, then that is another story, in that you can provide a plain-text link that can be cut & pasted into one's browser. ” This is what I mean by screenshot, using a program such as lightshot or gyazo. I did not say post a "picture" in the world herald ” (*Diabolical blushes in embarrassment at his own faux pas.) Quote from CoralWar: “The only reason to join the PL is to be sure t…

  • Quote from VorlonFCW: “Document with screenshots in newspaper. Screenshots should include time and date. ” This stipulation, found in several cases within your post, is not very practical. Not everyone has High Command. And without HC, one cannot post pictures in the WH. Now, if you allow exceptions for pictures uploaded to third party websites, then that is another story, in that you can provide a plain-text link that can be cut & pasted into one's browser. But, apart from that, I don't see how…

  • Do not believe the lies!!! There is no magical transport ship that just appears when you hit the water. Like lemmings, your forces will drown as they enter the sea...and your enemies shall applaud your brave attempt to prove that tanks can swim. >:D

    Quote from Diabolical: “ I'm not a fan of the new aircraft "hopping" arrows, though they seem OK enough, otherwise. Back to colorization, though, I think the problem with the new color sets, aside from not being used to them, is that they blur together too much. There's no contrast except for those non-core province colorization bars. I guess, the look reminds me a little too much of Conflict of Nations, which I never did care for nearly as much as Call of War. And, might I add, I haven't played…

  • Quote from MontanaBB: “Infrastructure is now a "two-fer," and the higher construction costs reflect that. ” Ah, but that added cost is significant. And, combined with the higher aircraft costs, has forced Oil to become an even greater and more-rare commodity than before. The resource imbalance by this sudden increase in demand for Oil has altered all games for the best and for the worst. People are still trying to build the same as before, aircraft galore, too much Infrastructure, and not enough…

  • ...continued from last post. ~0~ So, to you good Bytro people....please find a way to limit Gold usage to the first few weeks of play. Let the players who choose to spend money on this game be content with all the great gains they can make during that time...putting themselves on the path to an easy victory. And let the rest of us who can't spend money on this game be content in the knowledge that if we lose early on, we haven't suffered so much. Life goes on as normal. Please, this is absolutel…

  • OK, so Gold usage is always such a controversial topic among the community of players. Some people love it, some people hate it...and some people like using vast quantities to give their opponents a real reaming...if you know what I mean. Well, we all get it. Bytro needs the money, blah blah blah. It's an old argument, and nobody ever wins or feels like they're able to make any headway on this discussion. Well, like so many of them, I've tried many many times to offer alternative fundraising sug…

    Quote from Captain Hurricane: “Quote from Diabolical: “. Because I care about this game, the company that puts it out, and the community that plays it, ” Quote from Diabolical: “However, until they do, I will boycott this map type...as well as ALL team games...and I will encourage all other players with whom I'm associated -- and anyone else who'll listen -- to boycott it, as well. ” This contradiction speaks volumes about your attitude, it would appear petulant to put it politely.Quote from Dia…

    Quote from freezy: “This should not happen, it should save your settings. Maybe a cookie issue in your browser? ” I've seen this, and I think it's based on existing pages, open. If you have two matches open, and you switch one of them to the old graphics, then refresh the other match, it'll open with the old graphics. Similarly, if you close both web pages, but the most recent page closed was the one that you switched to the old graphics on, then reopen the one that had the newer graphics, then …

  • Quote from Little Racoon: “Quote from Diabolical: “When my empire gets huge, usually the other bigger players join together to take me down. ” And that is why you pretend to be weak and have a small one instead. ” Tried it...doesn't fly when they can see your army size every four days in the World Herald. It's now time for a pointed soapbox tangent. ~0~ Actually, I've just won a match where I was totally dominant. I had an army three times as big as anyone else. But they all banded against me in…
