Well, I might consider keeping it coming, but I really need to focus on school. I'm sure you know all about that. There is one other deterrent, though: Aside from the 1521 OAAMBs, (with their 4866 missiles), I don't have any other weapons.
I chose to focus on forts with my commentary above b/c Nimzovich had a bunch of forts placed in it again. Besides, I wanted to get a rough estimate of how well a multitargeting idea would work, at least with cheap, ammo-less weapons against unguarded forts.
My calculations, based on the above posts, indicate that a combination of 10,000 HAVs with 10,000 Jeeps could be split evenly 18 ways (maybe use the half Jeep I read about somewhere else-- *pause* --or maybe not), and still have a high probability of destroying all targets. That would be 108 forts in each 4 minute round, roughly translating to 6 hrs of nonstop attacking from one country to destroy the ~9000 forts you had in the Second Republic.
That's all the war analysis I'm willing to do at this point in time--I don't plan to be more than merely humdrum as a warrior in this game (at least not in the near future). I think I'll rest on my laurels for now. :P

lmao. That is great stuff. I was never good nor wanted to do all those intricate game calculations.

In the War and Peace forum, where I originally posted my multitargetting idea, I posted another version of the analysis above. There I forgot to mention that the cost of maintaining a constant number of forts against a determined attacker would be 16M * 18K = about 290B $E per game month.
Even at my economic peak, that would bankrupt me in about 3-4 game years. lol, Second Republic, with about 30T (if I remember right) would last at least 6 game years without touching the money it would make in the elapsed time.
I think I'm starting to ramble, so I'm going to go home now.

It's all good since it has been nearly impossible to get my 11 forts on order for the past 3 game years I think we have little to fear from 2k forst these days.. and it just went up to 8 companies worldwide building forts now...yay!
| Tuesday, January 27, 2004 - 06:56 am |
Hmmm. Might make my CEO build forts. Get a large slice of the market MUAHAHAHAHAHA (Oh, and it's 9 companies now)

not to mention the..400 soldiers and 200 officers. I have the exact numbers at home, I'll post it later tonight.
alot of forts will not save your asses guys, so just give up on that idea

Not depending on forts its just pissing me off to see it stay in my tade window for so long :/

After years of tolerating declines in government salaries, government employees of Spassky have finally said, enough is enough! "We are finally realizing the power we really have to make sure we get fair wages," one government employee said. "I just hope it's not too late to reverse the trend that has sent salaries to 25% of the international standard salaries (ISS)," bemoaned a high tech executive, "I barely make it to 5 digit income, and the national average salary for people like me is nearly 6 digits!"
National opinion is fairly pessimistic about the likelihood of a salary rebound for government employees, since most citizens are apathetic about the issue.
Meanwhile, people employed in state owned corporations are enjoying a relatively comfortable life, with salaries ranging from 2.3 to 2.5 times the ISS. "I don't see what the big deal is," stated one such employee. "If they want higher salaries, they can work for a corporation in this country. Lord knows we have some vacancies left in many high paying jobs." Others are outraged, being denied this option. "I was drafted after making big bucks at the state corporations, and now I'm forced to fight in some stupid war, and I'm getting peanuts for it! I could be making 6-7 times as much right now in the private sector."
And on that note, another 100+ forts bite the dust. Nimzovich is finally fortless!
