    Quote from _Pontus_: “Quote from BMfox: “I never produced that much oil ” Only when playing the Historical 1939 map as for instance Turkey I do not achieve such numbers fast enough. i.gyazo.com/fd122b088f6041f545a18da97864004c.png The general rule for me is that my oil production must exceed 1/3rd of my goods production ” Dear god, what day in the game is that? I never reach that kind of production but i finish my games in 40 days, that's maybe why.

  • It's not about the inactivity. Countries like Manchukuo, Mongolia, Mexico, Canada,... have a huge disadvantage to their big neighbors as they start from scratch. New players join the map, they see they don't have anything so they give it up immedeatly. Those countries need to be more playable. On the other hand South Africa has the biggest economy and could be a super power but it's AI. Please try to understand the logic as I can't.

    I agree but only if all player are seen as anonymous to prevent information leaks. I would be great to login to the game of a good player as a learning experience.

    Even though I don't always agree with Bytro they have a valid reason for the new diplomacy. To many players were multi accounting to have more resources. For this reason you can only trade with your coalition or with the market. This makes perfect sense. From diplomatic point of view, why would you send resources to a player that is not in your coaliton? The point is to win the game not to sponsor others. If you are sending a strong player resources in exchange not to be attacked then this is a …

    Taking over an entire country of an (in)active player in less then 48 hours in a map on regular speed is simply not possible. Your troops don't move fast enough and you lose a couple of hours with every single battle.

    You can't take over an entire country in less then 48 hours even if it's AI. If you play well it will take longer. Every ship and plane has it's crew, they are not controlled remotely That's why they cost manpower to get produced.

    Selling or giving troops is basicly the concept of slavery. In the 25 games that I played I won 14 of them and I have never felt the need to trade troops. If your ally is in another time zone that doesn't really matter. It takes an active player at least 48 hours to get conquered. When under attack you pull back, you regroup, you counter attack our defend on the terrain that is to your advantage and you do not enter a fight if you cannot win. Eventually your ally will wake up, come to the resque…

  • Quote from Elite Canuck: “C'mon! You mean to tell me the "X-Factor" is strong enough to allow a fighter to be out numbered 5-1 and still shoot down the enemy at a rate of 2-1?!? Even if that were true then I am having a very bad run of luck because it happens TO me routinely but never FOR me. Shouldn't happen essentially random? I get that you want to have some randomness and unpredictability in the game but this is extreme - way too extreme IMO. Let's do some math: Level 2 fighters have 20 HP e…

    Forget that one, I never produced that much oil and i'm very good at economy. Your numbers are right for goods or steel but for oil or food you rarely produce more then 500 a day. The trick is to adapt your army to your economy. If you are low on oil you don't run wild with tanks or tactical bombers. You build mot and mech infantry, reg and sp artillery and anti tank instead. Those who are not able to adapt won't survive, that is the basic rule.

  • I'm playing with Japan now, I'm very cureous. A lot matters on the activity on the map. I have the impression that they all go dull after day 8 because everyone goes inactive. A lot of players that don't get the game mechanic are attracted to the historic 1939 because a lot of knowledge, buildings and armies are given at the start. Most of them just clash head on without any thought on troop specifics or terrain, don't invest in economy and go inactive as soon as they meet resistance or are unde…

    There are thousands of games on the English sever. We simply don't have the manpower to do this. You can get all the advice and find all the answers you want on this forum or in the help chat in your game.

    I like the idea but how would you organise it? If you are zoomed out a lot of territory will be in the screen. There will be planes flying around, boats sailing, troops mobilizing, artillery bombing, soldiers dying. It would be a big mishmash of different sound that would become irritating fast.

    Quote from Chickenus: “Even ignoring how much this neuters competitive games, this is a massive insult to role players. This practically removes all diplomacy from the game. I don't understand why bytro doesn't make these settings one can select when creating games, but I think we lost the ability to make games a while ago. I don't know how I'll roleplay now. And I don't know how I will play with friends without being able to give them troops in times of need. ” To be fair, Bytro has made an eff…

    Yeah the market overhaul is really a pain, the rest of the update is really good. It took away most cheats.

  • Quote from ike53: “I created a spreadsheet of EVERY countries resources for the 100 game (what resources were in cities and in provinces and which were double provinces and which continent) ...It took a while and did it over time. Then I sorted it to put at top the ones which start with +2 oil and +2 rares. These are the countries I go for as these are the resources I desire. If I am playing with some friends, I can look up quickly and help them pick out good provinces as well. It works well. ” …
