Query for both teams: To avoid this game ending as a stalemate I'm considering the following change, opinions wanted please:

Reinforcement pop points remain at 150 a turn until turn 15, then from each subsequent turn the amount drops by 10 points, so that when/if the game hits turn 30 both sides no longer get reinforcements.

So yes or no?

    Do you think it's going to be that bad as a stalemate? I understand it's slowed down lately, but I think things will pick up a bit more soon.

    On the other hand, if no major events happen (no major troop movements; no major combat) until Turn 15, I would be fine with restricting resources.

    Well 5 more turns is enough to see if there's any improvement. I think it's quite likely though considering the way combats go and the difficulty of getting within attack range of an enemy base without losing your attack force on the next turn.

    There's a problem with that fix.

    Why wait for turn 15 or whatever, why not cut off reinforcements right now? If that happened, I'd still be averse to getting anywhere near an enemy base.

    There might be some of the Decoy Octopus left to find this time, but it is still very very dead. The attacks gain an XP and the Ottomotor and it's Vakshasa mount level.

    A Decoy Octopus at G3 can't shake the feeling that something bad is about to happen, but it doesn't pay enough attention to break the veil of the units about to attack it

    Blandcorporatio has just spotted that the Fusiliers are against the rules having defence higher than hits. There are two options:
    1)It's been 11 turns carry on regardless.
    2)Require all future fusiliers to have 5 hits and be popped costing accordingly.

    Opinions?

    Ok, going decently so far.

    About the question- my team of course prefers option 2: either have Fusiliers with 4H 4D or 5H 5D, and they will cost accordingly.

    Holy crap - we've gone THIS long without noticing? :S

    I... er, don't actually remember what the defense stat does here... but I suppose a third option would be to drop defense down to 4 and recost them in future.
