I also noticed that no one in my map knows how to play asymmetric war with much bigger/stronger enemies
ie. fighting 4 countries against our 2 I was forced to keep at bay enemy in couple of choke points while 80% army was diverted to conquering bots so we can get money and resources for the next days of fighting
even my ally does not understand this approach fully and he wants to clash in buffer zone - I explained him we cannot afford such a exchange if we want to win
is it the same in your maps guys? I must say that level of understanding of the game has being drastically reduced since 2012 when I last played similar tournament and it looks that people understand one thing: person more active with S&S will win. And probably most of you know this is not true if you know how to play this game.
In my map only 4 out of 10 are experienced players, currently fighting against the 2 i think will go through the next map
