Re: I'm bored playing this AI.

There is a key and vital reason to play pbem that is almost never mentioned; pbem is by far the best way to improve your game. I don't care how much you study the material, know the history, or have played solo; real mastery comes from the struggle with other humans. Almost all the tricks in my bag ...

Re: I'm bored playing this AI.

There are some excellent, dependable and trust worthy pbem players out there. When you find one, daisy chain and build up your pool of potential opponents by asking who they play with.

If you want to avoid pbem altogether, try playing both sides. It works; I've done it for years.

Step into Your Place.

Has anyone noticed if the CP receives a one time boost to its manpower power pool each time a nation, Turkey, Bulgaria, or Romania, joins its ranks?

If so, any idea of how much?

Lengthing the Craps game while on Blockade duty

Combat is abstracted in the Shipping box; this means posture only affects cohesion loss and it is best to keep all units there on green/green orders.

Is this also true for combat in the Blockade Boxes?
