After being frustrated with the attrition nonsense and taking about two weeks of the game, I've decided to give it another try. So I join the Battleground Europe map and, to my astonishment, I found my new country, Ile-de-France, already occupied by insurgents, ON DAY ONE!!!!!!!
To makes matters worse, the occupied provinces are the ones producing cotton and food!!!!!!!
How does this makes a good experience for a game I have no idea, but I hope someone from the development team comes up with a good explanation on how to ruin a perfectly nice game concept with these "brilliant" ideas.
Until this mess is fixed, I'm taking a longer time out.
