  2. Tile Map

    There's so much to say about this image, but I'll opt to point out what's changed. In North America, the Blackfoot capital of Sik…

  3. PR #1

    Once more Boer is on the top and for pretty obvious reasons, I don't think we'll be seeing them drop anytime soon. With a few weak…

    The Kimberly Artillery settle in the lake of it old home that seems less carpeted than usual. It seems the Australian's have made…

  5. 02.jpg

    The once Byzantine capital swaps hands in the aforementioned peace deal, going the way of Iceland in the peace deal. One must wond…

    Congratulations Houston! You now have the ability to build nukes potentially, shame you have no tiles that aren't occupied by Hawa…

  8. 05.jpg

    Sibir is looking might sparce, but it seems like Vietnam has as well. The Vietnamese meat grinder has taken a toll out of both of…

  9. 06.jpg

    Well, I might've been wrong in assuming back in the day that they'll be pumping out more Giant Death Robot's. It seems like the fr…

  10. 07.jpg

    Not having many units seems to be truthful about all nations as now since Khoro is in Mongolian control, there seems to be a lot m…

  11. 08.jpg

    Although they might be on vacation in Korea lands. This actually proves that. This means good for Mongolia. They have eliminated t…

  12. 09.jpg

    Oh Japan, will you ever get a break? After a swift recapture of Yokohama by Australia, it seems like the front has shifted to Waka…

  13. 10.jpg

    It's amazing if you think about this, but Korea doesn't have a single naval melee. Theoretically if someone attacked Osaka right n…

  14. 11.jpg

    Interesting fact, you can see here how odd the cities have generated borders. In testing, we found that the game wasn't capable of…

  15. 12.jpg

    Oh damn, in a surprising show of competence, Buccaneers actually forced their way back onto the continent with a recapture of Huam…

  16. 13.jpg

    Huh. Interesting war declarations all abound. Many people hate Tibet, but unless they land in Vietnam territory and fight through…

  17. 14.jpg

    Many small things to note here: Persian Privateer actually making it here meaning it had to go around Africa to do so. Good job Pe…

  18. 15.jpg

    All the Armenian supporter wipes his brow nervously looking at this slide. Seeing Yerevan, Bukhara and Gaza all in red must mean d…

  19. 16.jpg

    Now in a world without gains, the war grinds on. I honestly had to check that this wasn't the last turn. It seems like Sibir is wi…

  20. 17.jpg

    Honestly, no. I affirm what I said. Mongolia could actually make gains against either Sibir or Korea. There's no units or even air…

  21. 18.jpg

    Vietnam looks pretty mighty here, and with seemingly random chosen puppeted cities. I think Trung Sisters puppet the cities by cha…

  22. 19.jpg

    Ah, the Vietnamese competitors navy is quite fearsome. We hope the changes to Carrier bias will help strengthen the navy soon. Als…

  23. 20.jpg

    Australia's less than defended side. If it wasn't for Blackfoot existing in the middle, these cities would be toast, but for now t…

  24. 21.jpg

    Port-Au-Prince welcomes it's makers once more in open arms as it seems like Australia makes their peace with being off this contin…

  25. 22.jpg

    Rio De Janeiro in the meantime seems to be thriving with an actual land army and a wall of useless carriers sprinkled about. They…

    The aforementioned Great Famine is impacting all former metropolis's who refuse to adopt the tiles of their neighbours will suffer…

  27. 24.jpg

    Oh dear, Pretoria please. Having opted to sacrifice population in the wave of automation within the Boer capital. Still, despite t…

  28. 25.jpg

    Ivvavik, the Inuit capital, looks amazing architecturally but also suffers from the Great Famine. Cargo ships abound to keep afloa…

  29. 26.jpg

    Vietnam don't care. Their leader is quite knowledgeable about city expansion and has chosen the select tiles wisely to match the p…

  30. 27.jpg

    Sibir continues the slow ascent to greatness, although with low amount of food tiles, it seems that there might be less and less p…

  31. 28.jpg

    Oh no! Rim-Sin II has uncovered potentially dastardly deeds, which considering how early the game is since the restarts holds more…

  32. 29.jpg

    Definitely not as important, but Olongapo has no doubt aided in the success of Blackfoot by providing science to the empire. We on…

  33. 30.jpg

    Oh, oh…? That's actually quite upsetting. Making sneak strikes as Boer is unlikely, it seems like the only nation that they could…

  34. 31.jpg

    The Boer empire is actually quite sparse. If they want to attack, they'll need units. Unless their special worker has combat stren…

  35. 32.jpg

    Who would've guessed that Iceland would be able to actually own Constantinople. Finland must be quite scared considering the army…

  36. 33.jpg

    The war on Bamda seems to going the way of Vietnam, as Sibir's defense on Bamda evaporates as Vietnam approaches. It might be time…

  37. 34.jpg

    Mongolia, you amazing man you. You've managed to somehow turn into a mild superpower. Not only have they purged some exclaves from…

  38. 35.jpg

    Frustrating literally everyone, Brazil's force just disappeared. Maybe they don't want to hold a city in the middle of the arctic…

  39. 36.jpg

    Australian cities view the vintage wooden boats floating near them. They know they're in no threat of being taken, so they merely…

  40. 37.jpg

    Alas, Brazil has one thing to enjoy, and that is a Aussie free continent. Honestly, Australia was glad to get what they got, but t…

  41. 38.jpg

    Removing Buccaneers is once more annoying considering the Huamanga-ous (hate me yet) cities by the never defeated Buccaneers. Coul…

  42. 39.jpg

    While Uxmae remains in easy capturing range from Aussie, it seems like Inuit force might make the central American core a violent…

  43. 40.jpg

    It seems like that all they actually care about, as there's no units of Aussie in sight. We might be seeing Torreon flip to Inuit…

  44. 41.jpg

    Oh Ekeuhnick! Always picking on empires smaller than you. However, with a light hover, we can actually see how beautiful this nati…

  45. 42.jpg

    The Ashanti Pikeman views the military exercise in the once Polish home of Warsaw. It seems like they're pointing their guns direc…

  46. 43.jpg

    It seems just as empty here, but I have to once more appreciate the beauty of the texture pack. The added colors really help, alth…

  47. 44.jpg

    While it seems like Vietnam is pretty occupied, the amount of units that has perished in these parts from the failed siege on Yerv…

  48. 45.jpg

    Huh? It seems that units have come in to defend Bamda and has crushed the Vietnamese offense. Bamda has lost some health, but cons…

  49. 46.jpg

    Actually, I take back my original claim. It seems like Turfan will remain for awhile as majority of the Mongolia seems to be more…

  50. 47.jpg

    And this is the reason. If Inuit or Mongolia were to strike it'd be amazing right now. Although judging from the max HP units in t…

  51. 48.jpg

    Less than fifty slides ago I was talking about how Yokohama went the ways to the Inuit and now they burnt through their navy and l…

    Speaking of creaking ambiance, Iceland looks on with old rickety ships most likely from ancient era as Inuit potentially ponders p…

  54. 51.jpg

    Torreon seems to be slightly worried about the amount of nukes, but it seems that Inuit fans will be more worried considering the…

  55. 52.jpg

    The battle down here is a bit more violent. It seems that any opportunity for Blackfoot to fight a non-Inuit threat have dwindled…

  56. 53.jpg

    Buccaneers have cleaned up nicely. Put the drunkard in a suit and pain central America a nice shade of black and white and he's re…

  57. 54.jpg

    Tulum is getting the hug of death, but it seems like no one here is capable of capturing it. It's not even that amazing of a city…

  58. 55.jpg

    Yep, Mongolia cannot into war. I went from hyping Mongolia to just being a dejected father. Mongolia… You need to actually commit…

  59. 56.jpg

    Thankfully Inuit's forces don't seem too large here, but you need to be careful, as if they do declare, you should be seeing the h…

  60. 57.jpg

    Ah, the sisters realized that Tyumen was acting as a gateway for Sibir and won't be having any of that, potentially planning to pl…

  61. 58.jpg

    This front however seems quite volatile. Remember that Mk2.1 isn't perfect, and minor relationship values couldn't be replicated w…

  62. 59.jpg

    A bit southward on the globe, we notice some things odd. Namely the offensive Great Artist making a beautiful picture as Yerevan r…

    Alrighty Pikeman, you're like the second most loved astrayed unit, please don't get too close to the warfronts. Yeah, I understand…

    Refugee embassy seems to be well defended this time around, but it seems like they need to abandon here and just let it be swallow…

    Despite the lack of units, it seems like Inuit can also take a chunk out of Korea. A proper two way war with Mongolia could… actua…

    If you want to take out Australian Japan, you need a large amount of melee units, something that should be pretty obvious to any a…

  67. 64.jpg

    About going back to Hawaii, yeah, don't. You lost out on all your ocean holdings by Australia who has mastered the city. Most of t…

  68. 65.jpg

    Like come on! You have many carriers that can distract the AI, enough paratroopers to do the job and you can fill out your invasio…

  69. 66.jpg

    Buccs; despite having many cities in immense pain, seem to be making even more gains with an amazing usage of their units. They ha…

    Roleplaying aside, we're already seeing units smashing on the borders of Gdansk and Jyvaskla, the sizable navy of Sweden clashing…

  74. 71.jpg

    There's many numbers here, but I want to focus on some of the main ones. 911443 active troops here with 4.7 million sq km of land/…

  75. 72.jpg

    But it's not entirely over. With over half the military and almost identical land area, it seems pretty tight for Kekkonen who has…

  76. 73.jpg

    Kekkonen has realized this and has peace out with Armenia, Sri Lanka and Sparta, most likely giving some money away in the process…

  77. 74.jpg

    Down on the souther front, it seems pretty hard as Ohrid bombs down on Adrianople, a few units approach the front, but they can on…

    Armenia got out of this too, and good, considering it seems likely that the units produced in nearby Yervantashat were going for t…

    Oh boy, with Wroclaw's citizens glad it's not on the coast, it seems like the naval power is going right to Helsinki. Iceland also…

  82. 79.jpg

    Instead of detailing the chaos, it might be better to describe all that's happening. Adrianople take pretty severe damage with a u…

  83. 80.jpg

    Alright, I've trashed on Sibir for a long time, but once more the lower amount of units seems to benefit the AI, as they're taking…

  84. 81.jpg

    Alrighty, I don't know how it happened, but you didn't act soon enough. These lands could've been yours and instead you're witness…

  85. 82.jpg

    Again with the surprising snipe of Therapne. I don't even know how that happened, but I don't see a melee unit in range. Maybe the…

  86. 83.jpg

    Worst of both worlds! Not only has Tulum gone the way of Brazil, but the losing of Therapne means they lose the ability to hug Tul…

  87. 84.jpg

    Alas, we're at the InfoAddict slides, and we can see some interesting numbers. Sweden triumphs over Finland, Sibir does surprising…

    Again, not much to say here, as the people are at the bottom. Kind of disappointed to see Buccs here, but that's how the cookie cr…

    Those who are on top remain on top. Buccaneers peak in while Inuit surprisingly catches up to the Boer's with their few captured.…
