The fort exploit has been fixed. Forts and bases now only account for 25 WI points. I have won wars lately and not even touched the bases/forts. Break down is like this...
4% pop killed = 50 WI points
Pretty much the same wether large or small populations as a certain % of the pop of is killed regardless of size from attacks.
WD = 50 WI points
WD has a ceiling now based on population size as well. Smaller countries take less damage, cap sooner, and lose their WI index value faster than large countries.
Forts/Bases = 25 WI points
Bases are worth 3 points, forts worth 1/4 of a point. You need 200 points worth of defenses to have the maximum of 25 WI points. WI index goes down the corresponding % when Defense points go below 200.
Corps = 25 WI points
Now you need 1 Corp for every million people you have. Once it is below 1 Corp for every million people the WI will go down the corresponding %. Unemployment/Hiring/Production have nothign to do with WI anymore. That removes the exploit multies used to use.
So to lower WI you have to destroy 100 out of 150 total points. You can do that a myriad of ways. You are not required to destroy any one thing anymore. Countries/corps seem to take much longer to repair WD now as well it would seem. Have had 3 slaves for nearly a RL month and their WDs has only been cut by about 1T and that is with a constant stock of 1/2T construction that is upkept monthly.
