Can't say I agree with lowering yourself to the level of the very people you've been killing for the last year though. To each their own I guess.

Well, remember that if I was in GDI last set, I would very likely be in the 70-80m nw range and beat you both. lol But alas, it played out the way it did, so congratulations SuperFly on last set's win!

(Last set I did a Tyranny rainbow into Demo Techer and had a lot more time to resell. This set I played straight up Demo Techer with less time commitment - had 2m tech points to clear on the last day at very poor prices owing to my supply flooding the market.)

Hmm so far, it seems that Indy and Techer are the most successful strats on this server and Casher/Farmer seem really difficult. Is that accurate? When was the last time a casher or farmer managed to win?

Also guessing absolutely impossible for an Oiler to do anything here.


I netted 26m as a farmer the set before last and that was with blowing a ton of turns on retals so it's not impossible to imagine an optimal farmer, grabbing like crazy and being lucky enough to avoid getting grabbed netting around 40m and maybe winning. I've not seen it done though.

Do they never have oil? Don't they build rigs?

I would also add that they will usually have 240CS though occasionally they will build 360 I think.

I like USA Soccer Guy's write up:

Christian Pulisic is undeniafiably the headline maker as Chelsea Franchise Club hand the L to Man City Franchise Club in the EPL League Battle of the Blue Uniforms. The American made the first stain on the sheets at Stanford Bridge as he capitalized on some dumbass deefense from the Abu Diaby-owned soccer franchise to kick it right in the ball bag. Kevin the Brain knotted things up at ones with his real smart felony kick equalization play after the half-time show, but the Pulisic-inspirized home franchise would not be denied. A Rio Ferdinandinho hand felony in the danger box zone got him a major felony card and allowed his fellow Mexican Will.i.an to insert the death strike. But this game was all about Pulisic, with soccer fans up in the bleachers singing a bunch of songs about how neat he is at soccer and how it's too bad no other franchise got him on their roster before they did because now they'll have to go watch on as they dominize British soccer for, like, a real long time. Liver Pool also won the EPL League World Championship or something.

Congrats to winner and the other big finish in second. Finished 4th again (with something like 250 turns unplayed) I guess if I'd used those turns earlier to grab more I could have done better and getting land was super easy this set but i just didn't have the time.

1 agree with KOH that all profiles MUST be made open.
2 anyone who suicides should have their identity made available during the set when they next create a country and the country highlighted as potential suicider. That way whoever they wronged in the previous set has chance for revenge, other players can make the decision to preemptively attack them etc.

Alternatively simply make suiciding against the rules and delete players who suicide and ban repeat offenders.

I'm thinking the same - this guy hit me too and stole a ton of tech. I got suicided near the end of the set a while back and I didn't mind so much cause whilst it sucked, it was clearly a deliberate attempt to knock me out of the top ten and it was a tagged player who did it so i let it go as legitimate team play.

This, though is just bullfluff.

Really good finish for first time back. I needed 3-4 sets to knock off the rust on little variables to maximize nw


Thanks I'll give it another go this set. Is there usually still a market buyout cause there wasn't this set. Jets only sold up to 297 which is kind of low compared with what I'm used to.

for the nostalgia I just started the tournament this month and express on 13th may. I thought i was good and on top 5 but i guess i the game has changed over the last 20 years lol :)
i just must ask few questions pls:
a - how can i know who is bot and who human?
b - why cant i grab human players without being suicided at? what the hell happend to this game? i understand i had a mistake not getting armed with many troops and tanks, but come on. I played a lot of games in earth 2025 and i remember a very different game experience.

well, never mind. see u next round. i have learned my lesson. promise to finish top 5.


a) check the scores for prev reset, the bots are coloured yellow, will give you a clue to bot names. Also bots never have saved turns and usually have 240cs

b) the game is now 40 or so humans playing against each other and grabbing humans is generally seen as bad form as you can grab all the land you need from bots. If you do grab humans just grab once, never twice, any competent or determined player will wreck you for it.

They already have - a guy has died from Hantavirus, basically from eating rats probably and his companions also have the symptoms which suggests either human to human transmission or they all ate the same rat soup. Let's hope this isn't a new strain human to human hantavirus cause the fatality rate is like 40%

Looks like I caught it off a colleague who returned from Spain on Monday coughing constantly until we sent him home. Its not really bothered me at all, just a shortness of breath and occasional cough. Girlfriend is worse but not too bad. If this is the same virus it appears it can manifest completely differently from individual to individual.

We're all arguing about something entirely hypothetical anyway as the James Bond actor is and remains WHITE. There was actually a lot of fuss in the UK press back when he was first cast about him being blonde, ppl were saying there shouldn't be a blond bond. Anyway if the stories were still set in the post war / cold war era having a black actor play bond would be a bit hard to believe but as the stories are set in the present day then there's no problem at all. Hell we could have a Muslim Bond.

I doubt it, it's just to create a moment in the film where they say come in 007 and she walks in when people are expecting to see Daniel Craig. So a 00 means an agent licensed to kill, there have always been multiple 00 agents, say they have 20 on the go, when one retires or gets killed they replace them and give the new agent the old agent's 00 designation. So it's still a James Bond movie and unless it bombs there will be more in the future and James Bond will always be a guy cause the clue is in the name James. He could be black though, we do have black people in the UK you know and black people working for MI6.

No Daniel Craig is still bond in the movie that's what the article says, he's just lost his 007 designation cause he's retired.
