Ahh. Good idea that one. Where did you get it from?

I like the idea of more bots, and giving them a wider variety of routes. I know it's probably random or something, but this round there seems to be only a few route choices.

i like the WW and WK idea too

Chris'o is an unknown quantity at this point

Everyone is complaining about how the casual alliances are gonna get raped by FTW allys with half the alliance size. Now can you please explain to me how they are supposed to rape the sh#t out of FTF allys with only 10 players???

You people saying that dont realise that it will become dam hard for FTW allys to win...Hence making it more pleasurable and easier for FTF players. and to add to this resistances will be a LOT easier to pull off! packing the round with more excitement.

Also people that hate rushing units are p#ssies

Targetting ALL increases the sweeping capability by a negligible amount because they are so poor in HD/AD as well as the fact that most people use hippies or w/e ALL flak when required.

Thanks max, i had seen that thread before but i had forgotten about it. It would be a good thing to put in i think but it would probably be hard to code from scratch.
Put yourself in your enemy's shoes and show him what you want him to see.

Making alliances smaller I do not agree with. There are so many reasons which I've pointed out in other threads that I can't be bothered doing it again. And I think these days those reasons are even more relevant.

Making the round shorter makes a lot of sense. How often have we sat here 40 days into the round thinking "christ I wish this was over already".
