    Would it be possible to freeze the maps and continue after an announced point in time? To my impression this might avoid all this troublesome problems with troops running wild. Would be great and fair

    Noone with the ability to Change things to the better seems willing to listen. And with the CoW robbed of Features it is boring to me. I will take a bigger break and not join any game this year. I will peek in 2020 and I really hope that Bytro will have undone all of this illprone improovments: See you much later, bye

    Quote from freezy: “To give everyone a more complete idea what influences relations to elite AI: ” Hello Freezy, would it possible to introduce an (i) button on declaring war that opens an info screen with the effects on popularity? At present it is like arcane magic and if popularity drops on smaller maps you might loose just for that effect. With such info everyone get more aware of the consequences.

    Quote from OneNutSquirrel: “So if you have something to offer and put SELL OFFER on market for lower price than someone is willing to pay for it in a BUY OFFER... system will fill that BUY OFFER first, then if there is any product in excess.. it goes on SELL OFFER at price you put in.. ” Thanks for your clarification. I have had read your previous post but not realized it consequences.

    Just another observation of ill prone market logic and the dead market. 1. * On the market there was no offer on supplies and no offer on oil. 2. I had surplus on oil, need on supplies 3. Another player had surplus on supplies, need on oil 4. As we were not allied we agreed to put our surplus on sale at certain point in time 5. Well none of us ever so the offer of the other, upon placing the order AI consumed the offers immediately As consequence players outside an alliance are without hope to s…

    Quote from Citizenkane: “Unless i'm missing something, and thats possible, the only benefit to trading the army to an ally is so they can control that army instead of you. I'm all for keeping players active and I guess it's selfish of me to think that I would rather control these troops than the payer getting the ass handed to them. ” There are more use cases indeed. Another practical sample from the 100er map. I handed over some garrisons to my ally under attack. So I was not forced to join the…

    Quote from BMfox: “You could trade 10% of your army, on a 100 player map in mid or end game 100 or 200 troops are common. Imagine you fight an enemy and all of a sudden he has from each friend/account 10% troops and that daily if they please. That is what Bytro tried to counter. ” 10 to 20 troops sounds much on the first glance. But if one relates map size to this number it is 2 to 3 troops on the 22er map. Not that impressive, isn´t it? How many players complained about such unfair trade practi…

    From my perspective Call of War is no historic simulation but a strategy game. As such all discussion about what happened in his story is somehow pointless. What matters to me is the game experience and the variety of options one have to achieve victory. I guess I am not the only one. To limit options equates to limit the game experience. And that has exactly happened with the recent update. Again I propose to make the market rules and the limitation to trade troops an option on map creation. Th…

    Quote from white bird: “Because the top five "bad bad boys" are the top five point earners. ” I am observed this on larger mature maps. In the early phase however and smaller map the top 5 which are bashed by ai are crowed with active newbies. I have watched them starve and finally swalloed by experienced ones. Must have been quite frustrating to them.

    Quote from _Pontus_: “AI can only trade via the market, like anyone else nowadays... When you, me or AI or anyone puts a sale-order up on the market, there is no way of knowing who is the buyer! Thus - by the mere logic which was also applied to judging the market changes as BAD - this leads to the conclusion that AI can only not trade with someone if they declared a Trade Embargo on that person. ” hello _pontus_ as soon as the AI regards you as evil many of them declare embargo and some of them…

    Quote from Arcorian: “The Elite AI will become default in Call of War and replace the current ‘normal AI’ in all game rounds that are started after the release on September 3rd, 2019. ” Guess you might have missed the announcement. It stated this measure will get applied to all games starting 3rd September or later.

    Quote from BMfox: “Well obviously you play soft style and I play hard style so we will never agree.

    Quote from Arcorian: “With today's release we revert the change that limits trading resources on the stock market within a price range of 3 and 30 money. The price range will be set back to between 1 and 30 money again. ” According to Arcorian there has been a slight change to widen the limits again. No sign of a change on the trade penality. But lets hope it has gone too. On my maps the trade penality is still in place however. Was your map a new one, started today?

    Quote from BMfox: “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. ” The reason is indeed valid but the measure not adequate. In Gernan there is a infamous word for it "Sippenhaft", that is to punish many because you can not get hands on those that behave bad. Besides there is sign that even …

    Quote from nemuritor98: “, which will lead to a "funnier" and harder stock market. ” well from my point of view the market is no fun at all anymore. The 10% buy and 10% sell fee conducted when placing an order result into a minimum attrition of 20% for day trading. Before the update it was possible to improve your situation with call and buy orders. Now after the update placing an order gives me shivers, because it even could mean a loss without any gain. Yuk, horrible

    Another workaround is to type in 30, then to mark the 3 only and replace it with 1 or 2. After that mark the 0 and replace it also. Important don´t delete but mark and replace.

    Quote from BMfox: “I'm not even sure if I cancel the order I'll get my money back ” Cancelling / rebalancing orders implies the loss of the fee. At present the fee is deducted when placing an order and there is no way to get it back. As mitigation you may consider to place smaller orders in order to keep losses at bay in case market fluctuation turns against your placed order.

  • Like your idea about paratroopers. Whereas i would favor to have an additional research topic air transportation similiar to sea transportation. With higher level the air transport would get faster and have an increased range.
