That's super helpful. Now I understand. Early in a set I feel as if everyone else is doing horribly - aka I'm in the #1 spot and nobody's networth is rising.

But that's because they're accumulating huge amounts of cash and bushels. Their networth is 'hidden'. Can't be attacked, can't be seen on score, because it's on the public market to preserve it.

People build up millions of bushels, then at the end of a set, sell it to private market and then cash in, buying military off the public market.

I had no idea this was going on.

It seems as if this is not a game of making decisions in an evolving set. It's actually a game of making linear equations intersect on private spreadsheets. AKA, I grow linearly in a hidden manner for X hundred turns, destock at the end, hope I'm at a higher networth than other guys all secretly doing the same thing.

Your conclusion is right, but I think you may have a mistaken impression of the bushel thing. There's unlikely to be good players stocking significant bushels at this point in the game or any time soon, because the value of those bushels would be better spent as a growth investment (tech, military to grab or defend land with).

If you are first for the first few days and then fall off it's either because your country isn't specialized or efficient (buildings focused on one strategy with tech to enhance this strategy), or isn't growing its production enough to keep up with those that are expanding.

Heres a weird question, why did I get fewer turns than everyone else? I created a country during the first day, but the other countries came out of protection when I only had 50 turns. A bit of a disadvantage to be working under

That makes no sense, we all get same amount, the only factors that will differ the amount of turns are bonuses and logout time incentives, 3 turns for 12hr and 6 for 18 hrs.

If you religiously do an 18hr login you'll end up with more turns than a person doing 12hr logins, also you'll end up with more turns by using all your bonuses on turns.

I also have a question perhaps all the cashiers can tell me. Is it still better to build at a 11/10 ratio of enterprise to residential? Also if so does this account for all cashier strats ex Demo, Dict, Theo, Rep?

When I played before it was advantageous for a 11 to 10 for rep, I cannot recall if that was a blanket coverage.

Also bonus turns seem to just come even if I log on and break my 12hr or 18hr bonus. Do I get these regardless of my log ins?

I'm just a rusty vet testing the waters and trying to remember.

Perhaps you started 1 day (50 turns) later than you thought. You would have noticed not gaining any turn for the whole first day.

Wait the 18 hours for that 6 turn bonus for sure. I don't know if anyone else noticed this, but upon occasion you will receive 3x bonus turns when you spend your bonus points on turns, so instead of getting 6 turn for 12 points, you get 18 turns for 12 points. Doesn't seem to happen consistently, but it happens.

In a field this small the room for error is zero. It is better to oversend by 100k jets or 200k jets rather then fall 10 short or something ridiculous. Land is scarce this is a new game since I played 7 years ago. Every missed hit now is incredible what it takes or the final net worth of our country. I've missed now 4 or 5 cant recall that there has knocked of millions in final net worth.

When it's all said and done whomever wins the game honestly deserves a pat on the back and a good job. With less land every decision matters that much more and in essence who can play a 60 day free of screw ups has a much better chance of a win then someone who missed out and failed on many hits. That's not even accounting lost targets for the following day.

If you want to play primary with bots, go to alliance. Part of the fun in this game mode isn’t just where you’re going to get the land from, but that one person can wreck your set or that some people are daring you to do something about it.

I don’t mean to be a bully, but land really is hard to come by. I wish you luck on your retal.

Agreed with Bug. Each decision matters that much more in this game. With bots the fastest out of the game and who can regulate his time playing more efficiently and be on more will farm up with no consequences. And like the old saying goes get fat fast and win.

Depending on your strat it's sometimes best to wait until Thursday or Friday to start hitting for better returns but yeah, going crazy on the bots is usually a good idea. It's certainly an utter waste of turns exploring once you leave protection, can't understand why so many players keep exploring. Too lazy to grab I guess
