1. It's usually after you are in DR 5 that grabs become smaller. Also the amount of land someone grabs is based on your NW and their NW as well as their military strat. So a guy that's near you in NW with high military strat will get a lot more acres than a guy 3x your size w/ very few military strat, even if guy 1 hits you at DR4 vs guy 2 who hits you at DR3.
2. GDI in primary DOES prevent you from being farmed. Look at alliance server, untaggeds are ALWAYS at least DR5, they get about 2 seconds where they aren't before someone comes in and farms them multiple times again. In primary Have some tanks/missiles and it'll deter ppl from hitting you more than once.
3. Don't worry about how the rules aren't helping you, rather figure out how to use the rules to maximize your country. It's not that the top players don't get farmed, it's that they figured out how to get on top first and stay there. It's the same thing in life, you can spend your time/effort hating on ppl who are successful or you can spend it figuring out how they got there and how you can mimick their strategy. You have to earn your way to the top, sadly no one's going to give you handouts in earth or in life.
4. That being said, message some top players running your strat and ask them for help. I did that just a few sets ago (and still do) and learned a lot about what I was doing wrong. I finish top 25 easily now.
Are you guys stupid or what?
