  • Nefarious Players

    Ive played in only a few games but there seems to be a lot of Nefarious attacks in every game, with players that like to hit below the belt to others and not declare war, a lot of players and do so. I find this is part of the game that is very negative, and for me its the one of the biggest turn offs. People who enjoy doing this should be called for what they are.
    So I think why not have this noted in the achievment list so people know who they are playing with. Newspaper articles on this matter are not enough in my view. Call it a "Below the Belt" award or something.

  • While the name of the game is “Call” of War, this should not indicate an expectation that other players will phone ahead for a reservation before dropping by unexpectedly. ;)

  • Wow such canned solutions to an issue, thats going to fix it isnt it ?, Oh gee yes Id like a phone call before they attack and perhaps a gold invitation as well with a gold braded envelope.
    Wow yes I expected a response like those above, cause mostly I expect you do it yourself? And shows why this type of activity is condoned.
    You use Historical referances throughout this game technology and referances from Historical Leaders?, and History shows Pre WW1 & WW1 and WW2 that the DOW Neferious method was done in 1 case, and only by an error of the Diplomats concerned. not a deliberate intention, as what is being betrayed by a player. There's a big differance, this is where you guys get it mixed up.
    Back then a war without a declaration was unthinkable, and not preferable, by serious nations of the world who want the rest of the World to take them seriuosly as a World Power.
    Only terrorist organisations declare war that way, to only until today these standards the Neferious method is done.
    You are mixing todays standards as what happned historically, and then carry on like it was the norm.
    In reality I know its happens in a game, but people are suppose to be representing a World Power in this game Historically are they not? Then if the Neferious is going to be used as the norm method by a player, then it should be recorded as such and so on, there gaming Achievements as a "Below the Belt" award I would suggest.

  • You forget a major difference between CoW and reallife
    COW is a game; ppl aren't gonna announce widely who they are gonna attack and for what reasons etc
    they just want more land/vp and tbh you can see most attacks coming since armies dont appear out of thin air

    I agree. After all this is a war game, similar in principle to the old 'Risk' game ... :thumbup:

    I'm only on my fifteenth game. Normally in the early days I act peacefully and focus on economic development. The only exception to my recollection been in one of my early games in the tutorial where my neighbor in Finland (I was Sweden) made it obvious he was about to attack by stacking umpteen armies at the border and a large fleet by Stockholm- so, I did a preemptive strike on him.

    Typically by day 2 several of the human players will attack one of their neighbors. Normally within a week about half the human players are gone. By then, I have to re-evaluate my situation and most likely will join an alliance to improve my chances of winning vs one or two other alliances. In recent months I have been doing trade embargoes before I go to war with any other country.

    Yes but you have the forces ready to attack, then Declare is that right?
