In the diplomacy tab you can see all the countries and their score. What does this score mean, how is it influenced? And what do the ranks mean? I noticed I'm 2nd, even though I haven't taken over any provinces or anyhting like that.
Now that you have seen it, let me simplify as best I can. Points are based on your moral, improvements and number territories you have. So, you can have a higher point with fewer territories but more buildings and a higher moral. It is calculated daily and all players score based on this are what places you.
