I would also suggest buffing the explore feature on FFA, perhaps even to the point where there is NO decay on it or maybe explore rate should even grow slowly as you get larger Ie. You will always get 45 acres regardless of your land.
Or in the second case, maybe every 10000 acres will give you a 5 acre increase on the explore rate.
Why? Farming bots is beneficial not because there is a decay on exploring but because even at 1k acres, you get more land and buildings in a turn from bots than you would from exploring. However, this will make all-x countries more competitive.
Obviously, this would have implications for bots. The bot code could be changed to make them grow at the same rate they currently do in terms of land, ie. Making them cash more turns when over a certain acreage.
Both of these changes and further suggestions would make FFA be an option for the casual player as most cite time as the reason they refuse to play.
Also, if people have other ideas, post them here and I'll add them to the this post. It sucks to hear so many old FFA players say they'd play here if only they had the time or they promised their significant other they wouldn't play the server because of time etc
