    • The new event has a major BUG - it has allowed a nation to declare war and attack during peace period, take territory and not be attacked back.

      Please fix or explain, there are 15 hours of peace period left and the attacker can just move into territory and capture it, this really sucks!!!!!!!

    • To have a bug looked at you need to fill out a bug report from that particular map using the menu in the lower right corner.





      The fact that you can't attack back proves that the peace period is working properly.

      I suspect that you gave this other player right of way or shared map first? It is never a good idea to give someone you don't know permission to enter your territory during a peace period. Some players will take advantage of your generosity, but there is little we can do as you invited them into your country.

    • There are some countries on this event map that actually do produce more resources, such as Yemen in your example. This is not a bug or a glitch, but the way this map is. I do not believe there are presently any plans to change it during this event, but some changes may be done before the next time this map is used for an event.

    • Hey, at least you're not Danzig. I feel it's quite interesting, although I am disappointed to get Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia is easy if you manage the diplomacy well, but I wanted countries that are usually AI, such as Saudi Arabia. To be honest, I like the major advantage of Yemen and Panama, since they allow incentives to take over these amazingly OP resource hotspots. I have some minor thumbs down, such as unlucky players getting Danzig (it should be included into Poland), but otherwise, it's great!

      P.S: try allying with Danzig and see how that goes. I'm allying with Danzig in my game.

      Exactly. It creates a "king of the mountain" type of atmosphere

    • This event sucks, please NEVER offer it again!!! Here is the list of countries that I got (I quit immediately). I'm not going to join a coalition on this terrible map and just get carried to the win. Why does Bytro think it is fair/fun to give some players gigantic advantages and others HUGE penalties? 100% dumb idea.

      1. Liberia
      2. Albania
      3. Costa Rica
      4. Ireland
      5. Belgium
      6. Panama
    • Thanks for the feedback and the reports already!

      Reason for the event: We got the feedback quite alot that players wanted to play all countries on the historical world map. This event provided this opportunity. It is not meant to be balanced and it is not meant to give all countries the same opportunities. The focus is more on providing historical atmosphere and more accurate ways to replay WW2. We hope that the event is fun for the players who like that.

      Not all events are for everyone. We try to run different kinds of events suited for different kinds of players and expectations. Since we have weekly events now, everyone can just read the descriptions to decide if one should join or skip it for next week's event.

      As a reminder: Events are communicated on the main website now with countdown, there won't be a news post any more for events that are not completely new events.

      Your message says as much as "I am an unimaginative player"

      Belgium almost got me on my map, where I am the Netherlands. If he had won, he could now be in my position.
      Now, another few days later... the Netherlands is 'Numero Unero' on the map :)))

      I am pretty sure I can do the same thing when playing Belgium, provided I have the same circumstances (that I am not telling).

      And I would love to play Albania or Yemen or Panama some time! Or Danzig... and maybe conquer the world.... or maybe just survive. Can't win every game, so survival can be a goal in itself, requiring a different approach and ... some imagination :)

      Devs, please keep offering this event regularly, so I can play many different countries!

      I would really wanna join another one, but unforturnately I don't have enough time. I would REALLY like this as a system game like the 100p every now and then and make the 25p available for player-create again. I would DEFINITELY want to try out Danzig. I mean if I get wiped out early on, doesn't affect my stats much, and if I get Poland, I get a sense of achievement.

      That sums up the historical map in general. Loved by many and despised by others.

      Personally I think that the "big" countries have a disadvantage at the start anyway in the historical map, so a group of small or even micro countries can probably make it just as well. They don't have the overhead, the population, the oil drinking navy, and the scattered provinces of the big nations.

      If not offered, something you can do. 4 or 5 friends and I set up a 25 historic map and no one was allowed to play as a major power. We used elite AI and had to conquer the world with the minor powers we chose. Note it does take a while to do this. I was India once and Yugoslavia once.

      I like the gamemode but I don't like the rules of the game. I think next time this event comes out it should be free country selection, and it should be a little more balanced. Countries like Greece have struggling economies, while Yemen is drowning in riches.
      I agree that countries like Yemen have too much of an advantage in specific resources, but keep in mind that Yemen doesn't have oil production and is prone to early invasions. I played Yugoslavia in the event, and found it hard to expand because two major powers are on my doorstep, but in the end it was quite fun (until I got conquered by Spain and USSR combined). I think free country selection is pretty nice, but that the major powers would be taken early on (the clear advantages). Well, you'll never know how you'll end up.
