This is all very good info. Thanks a ton guys. I may not give up yet. I will try practicing also in a different server and alphaffa. I'm trying not to get frustrated. I will for now keep chugging along. Seeing the fact that there are so few players left in primary but good people left makes me kind of want to give it another chance.
btw, the top guys cannot hit u if u are smaller than 1/4 their size.. some of them probably hit u while in range and then jump up networth.. this is especially true when the top guys are commies, cos their networth fluctuates a lot from the selling of military and then getting back up in networth after spending turns..
As a top guy, i would be turned off by targets who are not land fat.. big guys will go for the landfat and easy targets first.. as there are little ppl in primary to provide targets for the big guys, the way to survive is to go to the top and dont join the game late in the round
