I suggest you make one.


Bots aren't a detail but a major aspect of the game, as important as turns, units or government type so why isn't it mentioned on the server details page? The amount of times this gets asked clearly it's not obvious to new players.

There should be something that explains bots to new players but no, for some reason it's yet another aspect of this game that is kept secret and people won't find out about it until they ask on the forums.

2 or more words as countryname and each starting with capped letter (like Captain Yellowbeard) and a lot defs and no attacks and besides indies spyop shows that no jets.

Bots are the countries with weird names - for examples check the top players > prev reset, all those countries in yellow were bots. Bots can be grabbed without fear of retal.

We've regained nothing just potentially lost access to the biggest free market in the world. It's already cost us billions and will cost us billions more. The sovereignty you talk about was not sovereignty but sensible regulation, the highest food standards in the world, workers rights etc. Now to all be eroded by a government of millionaire eton graduates

When you want to play farmer or casher thats when you need to start really thinking.

Yeah commie shoukd be an easy 30m finish just through buying enough tech, grabbing plenty and burning through your units.

Correctly taking advantage of the market gets you to 40-50M

No idea how a commie gets over 50m in express though but I might start playing again to try.

I always thought farmer was not viable in express due to the lack of turns?

Is there a list of these per mil tech level? What I want to know is, if I'm already selling bushels on the private market for 35 and I'm not planning on maxing tech to be able to sell at 36 is there any purchase price benefit to reducing my mil tech by a few more fractions of a percent?

Thnx

Now the clincher is that Norway has a lot of that freedom of movement of people towards EU that the Brexiters have promised to do away with. No country has the deal that the Brexiters promised that GB would get, and the EU reps have been consistent from the start that such a deal is impossible.

So they either get a no deal brexit, which will
-cost hundreds of thousands, if not millions of jobs, in the short and medium term due to not having free access to the EU market.
-Stir up a lot of dissent in Scotland and Northern Ireland and possibly wake up IRA. ultimatly the union could possibly have breakouts of their own.
+full control of their own environmental policies, fishing waters, agriculture etc
+They can fully control of migration in whichever way they please.
+they no longer pay the 9 billion (tho the cost could be an order of magnitude or more higher in lost jobs)

Or they get the "Norway deal" which is pretty much
+/- unchanged net cost
+/- unchanged migration
+/- unchanged control of their own environmental policies, fishing waters, agriculture etc
- they can no longer vote in the parliament on decisions that could potentially affect them


True but most people who voted Brexit just don't want to know or are jobless benefits claimants who it won't effect much either way as the state will continue to pick up their bill. Brexit is pretty much all about racism and nationalism. People here think that Britain will just turn the clock back 100 years and become a superpower again after Brexit.

No one, literally no one in England cares about the Northern Irish border. It's only an issue for people who live there. So long as whatever happens there works it's ok. Scotland is a different matter, they will push hard for independence now. Could be the start of the break up of the Union. No idea if that's a good or bad thing.

On the British food thing, yeah our traditional food is not that apetetising stuff like shepherd's pie, roast beef dinners, stew and dumplings, Cornish pasties etc.

We are screwed. Leaving the biggest free market in the world that has brought prosperity for decades, goodbye to our food standards soon we'll be forced to eat US chlorinated chicken, we'll be paying through the nose for US medicine basically we are about to see exactly how much the big economies in the world can screw us over in our desperation to get a trade deal. Yeah we'll be able to catch as much fish as we want and keep Spanish fishermen out of our waters but what good will it do when we can't sell any of the fish to Europe.

Actually, I didn't bomb your banks first. If you got your banks bombed it wasn't from me.

And Yes, I do understand that I only took away about 10mil NW off you with my attacks and ops - but you panicking and selling all your turrets on the private market to buy oil to attack me? Yes, I get to take credit for that NW drop too. You got owned you little fluff. Go play candy crush this game is too manly for you.

This is the third post about it recently but can only find this one:

https://www.earthempires.com/...kfires-47808?t=1570519653

I've had it myself, it says you've poisoned your own water but you lose no civs. The target had zero spies and I had a lot of spies so very unlikely to have actually failed. Bioterrorism is working cause I've been poisoned I can only assume (though I've not proved it) that there's a bug causing the wrong message to display.

sigh...if you knew anything about this game you'd know that farmer can't win express, there are simply not enough turns for it to be viable, once you get the buildings / tech needed you are about 1000 turns short of what you need. My set therefore was an experiment with a pure 50/50 farmer oiler, basically I wanted to see if I could just sell oil to buy tech and everything else and stock bushels from day 1 and see what the result was. That's why when your friend started his bullfluff I was already down in 60th place...but of course I had a lot of turns and stock I could sell to easily buy tanks to AB, which I did. I don't know why I'm bothering explaining this....but anyway after I was multi tapped and then I ABed (and spy opped) your 'friend' (funny how you were both messaging me at the same time? I guess you were coaching him on his 'strategy') my 'netting' experiment was over. I only logged on for a few ABs on 36 who also multi tapped me and then your 'friend' again yesterday as I logged on to full turns I decided to use them all spy opping #13s buildings again.

Ratski's sure taken a keen interest. #97 is not technically a rainbow, just an experiment that now looks a bit like that cause I haven't been playing other than winding up #13 with ABs and spy ops and the same with #36. I'm claiming victory though, whatever that's worth against these fluff players as I've knocked both #13 and #36 out of the the top ten. Not that that required any real skill or effort and they would never have finished anywhere near the top 10, I just hastened their demise.


Translation ="#13 is fuggin me up long time." Lol
na I hate when ppl LG in the middle of conflicts like that.


No, the translation is if you're going to break GDI and threaten to kill a country buy tanks first. No one gives a fluff about your stupid opinion anyway. You probably are #13
