      For your information: I'm about to finish on day 8 with the American resistance. We entered the game with 4 Regulators: Mod Torpedo, SMod Eminem, ex Mod Crazy Pigeon eyes and me. The four of us might be a bit more skilled then the average player and we work well as a team but it is the proof that a team of 10 players that communicate in their chat and work together can win this map.
      To be fair, it is not "a bit more skilled" but "far and away more skilled". But this is not the only point.

      From what is posted here, it seems that the norm is to have a maximum of 2 active players per team. Having 4 skilled and active players that work as a team from Day 1 is immeasurably advantageous. So much, that one could even claim that it is unfair to non-alliance players who entered the map in order to play with random partners.

      If alliances are to enter as a group in the game, it might be better to show (for example, in the Join screen) that the team map you are about to enter will see you facing a "block" of some alliance. Then you can decide to enter only if you can guarantee that you have members of your alliance in the team, or other players with whom you have agreed to play together.

      I agree that this (as also the other team maps) are better to be played by alliances. If so, then perhaps some advance notification would be helpful.

      I think that is a good idea but many players I believe would not look at it, I believe the players who joined and went inactive did so before discovering that us four were in it. I can say from experience that many players don't realise we are allied even when fighting us all or after 10+ days of the game.

      I believe the best way to counter this is for the ability for alliances to verse other alliances as the current method is the only way players from the same alliance can all play together. I can't say for others but I would have enjoyed it a lot to play a 10v10 or 10v10v10 against 1-2 other alliances but as the maps fill up so fast this is not a realistic possibility.

      mate, in the italian server we have an alliance that enters with 15 players in the anonymus maps, which are single player focus.... its unfair, and is a easy bully win against random (i mean bully casue they pick the randoms one by one and all of them declare war on you so morale -25 and attack from all side) its not fair but there are also no rules against that play style ;( now they just cheese the rounds to gain the gold and randoms that know this stopped joining those maps

      a "join all" option? make the leader as the main joiner and when he
      clicks on it all 5 member that agree to play join the match.... and
      those are lock only for X amount of leaders so to allow randoms to join
      and also allow same alliance memebr to stay in the same team
    • thats not hard at all.... they already keep stats between games, having a "if alliance=X>Y; then notify if 5 alliance = lock game" is a simple comand to implement.... its already possible to see what alliance people are from, in the info of the player but its not important if you know 15 players are togheter but rather if you want to join a match with all those players

    • As one of the round i play came to a close, i can say pretty much no one uses Paratroopers (i did see in a newspaper about Paras being shot down, but that's pretty much it) meanwhile Light Tank and Armored Car are still the dominant forces at destroying whole nation, take this for example:

      The enemy built a "Maginot Line" and i just cut through it with LT and AC, destroying their rear lines without Paras at all.

      The German forces in the East coast is mostly untouched and took my advice, they started building massive forces to prepare an upcoming invasion against us, but when i checked the newspaper, we were just 100 points away from winning and didn't need to invade them at all. That's kinda too bad, the Germans had 9 actives vs 6 of us and yet their Eastern coast wont have much time at all to turn the tide of the battle. We would've win against them anyway, but still too bad.

      Yes in this event, all or nothing would have been appropriate. Have all or nothing.
