i think the majority of players are americans, and therefore think that american english should be the standard for spelling and grammar everywhere on the site.

Also, while not exactly a grammar issue, when you're looking at top players/clans, it seems more intuitive to me to have the "prev reset" on the left side of the frame and "next reset" on the right.

Unless I'm missing something here, it still says:

"Your research labs are always look at ways to develop new weapons."

just a minor issue, wont be seen by many but im bored

"You purchased 1 Troops, for $134."

'We currently don't have enough empty land to construct a full bpt worth of buildings. Unless we are building cs, we should acquire more land from exploring or attacking before constructing additional buildings."

"full bpt worth of buildings" could use a rewording. The tips seem geared to newbies so in addition to rewording the bpt part, cs maybe could be changed to Construction Sites for consistency since acronyms and abbreviations are not used elsewhere.

Also in the "Luck" bonus description it says "a greater chance of successfully attacking when oversending". Should that not be undersending?

In FFA, in the FA page (the one where you look at all 16 countries at once)

It says

'Max goods to spend:'

When it should say

'Max goods to send'

<Drinks> pm me if I get hit

not grammar or spelling, but on express server:

"You've placed _______ for sale on the market. They will arrive for sale on the market in several hours."

it's actually 15-45 minutes

From FA control page under Economic in FFA Main

Use this page to send multiple FA packages to one of your countries. The countries do not need to be allied, but all of the other FA restrictions apply. In additiona, every country you select will send the maximum amount of every good you select. For finer control, you must login to the FA page of each country.

additiona =/

I got this message when sending FA: "You sent the following goods to XXXX XXX: 133222346 Money."

It seems a really inelegant way to phrase the amount sent. I guess I can get avoiding the American-centric way of calling it $133222346, but I would think being able to include commas would make it much more readable.

Suggestion: add the word "points" or "research points" after the name of the technology in the news. I know we all know what it means... but it just looks/sounds funny.

You tried to sell Spy to a standing order but the buyer had no money!

You sold 300 Business for $493,500.

Espionage:

"Sending your agents into opposing research labs, this operation is the only one that physically benefits you. If successful, you will capture a small portion of your opponent's technology points."
--

Raid Food Reserves and Raid Oil Reserves also physically benefit the country spying.

Raid Oil: “ ..In addition, your operatives will capture a small portion of your enemy’s reserves”

Raid Food: “..In addition, your operatives will capture a small portion of your enemy’s reserves”

When you hover the mouse pointer over Money and income is in the red, it says "Defecit". Can you change it to Deficit? It's a bit of an eyesore.
