Troops are 1, turrets are 2 and tanks are 4 defensive points.

Never hit the same player twice unless you are ready to war.

My defense is 27 missiles tho =P

Do you have to do something to set a part of your military as defense or ALL of your military is defense all the time automatically?

It's automatic, you can get extra defense via bonuses, apply it to "defense bonus" on the bonus page.

Turrets, Tanks and Troops are considered Defence.

Said military will be your defence unless you "PS" Planned Strike your Tanks/Troops out for 20 hours. then they are not counted until they return back!

Jets are Offence only, Turrets Defence only. Troops/Tanks provide both Offence and Defence.

Also factor logging out with 100% readiness for maximum effectiveness, also you can get WEAPONS Tech increasing the defence/offence value of your military.

Man, I am only just realizing how bad it is in this game to attack someone twice...I also didn't read the GDI thing so yeah, not smart over here. In my mind, I hit you, you hit me, I hit you so etc. just seemed logically the thing to do. It's not fyi. I also didn't realize there were bots.

Learning fast though with my multiple spankings though, so thank you Earth world for your learnings.

its logical only if you are landtrading (instead hitting on bots) but on soloservers that's co-operation and very much against rules.

logical, in that the reason why I hit these people as they have LOADS of land and I figured that since they hit me then we are "even".

Logically, you would attack people with lots of land right?

well yes except its not that unusual that attacker loses more land than gained when gets retalled.

Try to grab those who cannot grab back. Join gdi too, Otherwise it’s a free for all... and everyone loves to punish another who breaks gdi, so watch out. Lol. Missiles are the best defense from multiple hits.

There are no bots in primary.

Most of the time, people who have loads more land than you also goes to show they probably has more skills. Grabbing them isn’t the smartest choice. If ure playing to be good, you should stick to grabbing those who can’t fetal you and focus on improving your country build first

I think we also need to take into account the social impact of grabbing
Also it would be great if everyone kept the same names

last set on Express I grabbed Ko like 5 times bc he had low defense and a lot to grab and went by non-ko related name but I was punished for it socially on forums.

Now I'm afraid Ko won't answer any more of my noob questions.

game is either "boring" all-x or taking risk on getting suicided and grabbing human players (if server has no bots).

Certainly won't be double grabbing folks anymore, now that I learnt to read. I feel the fun for me in this game is to try not to be super fat on the land, I wouldn't have thought it would be that hard to have lots of land? Just attack weak countries that can't retal you and be a commie or casher. I would rather do the unskillful find targets that I can attack and gain a lot of land for...then lose hopefully less in the retal trick (although have noticed people retal quite late in the piece and so it's hard to remember if it's a retal or not as it's not in the news).

I'm enjoying playing the game again though, this is my first go at Primary so we shall see if I need to totally change strategy.

getting a lot land isn't hard, keeping it is hard.

late set retal = gains multiplied (for example early set 200 acres grab is retalled later by 2k acres grab)

eestats.com shows news on nearly every server.
