    - the higher you end, the more points you win back (see info picture g2)

    - tip: in game one, the player who was ganged up on first, managed to end in 5th place by holding on to 1 icelandic province, securing him a lesser point loss then when he would have ended last

    nah, it is a wargame, so wht iswrong with backstabbing?

    IF you backstab someone in a ranking, you can already predict what will happen next ranking game with the backstabber? :p Or maybe not. That is the fun part about a ranking ;)


    Nah, let's just say none of the players in the game were amused with the manner he used to ensure beign the first to be defeated.


    Technically he did nothing wrong. Practically: if everyone justifiedly dislikes it, then you did something bloody annoying = unsportmanship behaviour.

    because Scotland is officially a region of the UK?

    <=> Liechtenstein is an independent nation

    <=> American Samoa is officially consider themselves self-governing = dispute situation

    <=> South Sandwhich Islands: same situation as American Samoa

    <=> Falkland Islands= again, disputed territory


    Scotland is technically not a disputed territory :p despite the elections to be or not to be independant :p


    I would sum it up as: Scotland isn't allowed as an independent nation in the Olympic games either :p


    ;)

    being part of a global company, we fixed this in a very userfriendly manner:

    every single person can adjust this in their own personal settings :p


    because there are more standard formats on this planet.


    For example:

    I select format dd/mm/yyyy => i will see that

    mikemike charlie selects dd/MONTH/yyyy => he will see that

    RoteKatze select mm/dd/yy => he will see that


    And also when we send eachother messages, if it is a system generated date, everyone only sees their personal preferred format


    Same for time: hh/mm/ss <=> hh/mm <=> hours as AM/PM or just 0-24 or ...

    2582278

    Total Gametime = 34 days


    1st place: bramptonhabs

    2d place: MacDouwe

    3d place: Tabaka77

    4th place: malskaer

    5th place: MeWoodson

    6th place: Alexander Oxford

    7th place: .vik. => Penalty of -10 Ranking Points will be applied for unsportmanship behaviour.

    IT is only difficult if you aim at implementing ALL of the above in one HUGE overhaul.


    But in a step by step approach? one step at a time.

    And after every step you can still decide it is not interesting enough to take the next step

    Of course it is more fun if it is exactly the same as 'real life', but not important enough?

    Do not fix what isn't broken?


    It doesn't changes how players implement strategy, because players build their strategy on the available maps.


    If the maps change, players would still build their strategy on the available maps.

    Bit late but still :)


    The mobile version is working pretty ok.

    Jsut one thing that I really miss in it: the "pin army" mode.


    Is there any news regarding this matter?

    - is it in the planning to be implemented?

    - if it is, when can we expect it?


    the other army modes are already really bad on a computerscreen, but on a phone or a tablet they are a disastour, pin mode would look so muc hbetter :p
