the max amount?  i dont know maybe 30,000 lol

the bigger you get the more you can produce.  only reason to stop growing is that the end of the round is approaching and there's not enough turns remaining for new buildings to pay off what you spent to make them (between attack losses, oil, + building cost)

Post by: eyyy im walkin here on August 11, 2016, 04:11:03 PM
hes a scrub, no tech and shitty mix of buildings.  only problem is that is a lot of turrets and jets and theres so many "bot" countries for me to farm that i dont feel like taking my retal yet (retal is when you hit back someone who hit you.  people generally respect that and move on.)  since this clown hit me 5x ill want to hit him back a few times but that will break gdi and open me up for war, and since hes a moron he'll definitely want to hit me back more if he can.  but i wont be around this weekend anyway so i guess ill risk it.  ill hit him 3 times probably... each will be a PS, ill get about 5000 land off him, and then see if he brings the war

here's my god country
http://www.eestats.com/express/country/107 (http://www.eestats.com/express/country/107)

attacks take 3 turns as a demo, and as a techer, those are turns where im not teching anything and thus making no income.  so i have to be a badass at grabbing efficiently, which i am.  16 total attacks made, 6100 land gained not counting ghost acres.  if you check the top ten list:
http://www.eestats.com/express/toptencountries (http://www.eestats.com/express/toptencountries)

that puts me #1 on the server for land grabbed by a wide margin.
country   land grabbed
Baron in the Trees (#107)   6100

Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on August 11, 2016, 04:36:45 PM
yep keep clearing em out

for example as a techer this is what my country looks like

Land Distribution
Enterprise Zones   0
Residences   0
Industrial Complexes   714
Military Bases   0
Research Labs   8496
Farms   0
Oil Rigs   0
Construction Sites   220
Unused Lands   18

no chafe.  (some indies necessary as it's the only way to get spies.  ill destroy them when i have enough)

your country should be like 3000 enterprise zones, 2800 residences, 0 0 0 0 0 0 500 indies 0 0 0 0

Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on August 11, 2016, 06:41:40 PM
buy armies on the market
buy tech on the market, specifically bus tech and res tech, keep them over 160% all the time and get them up to 179% at the end of the set (and i would recommend, in the future, starting with all labs to put down a groundwork of tech before switching the labs out to ent/res, it's a little trickier playing a casher this way but tech is so expensive...)

Title: Re: earth empires

Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on August 11, 2016, 06:52:06 PM
oh yeah that doesn't apply to theocracy, i was thinking republic.  for a theocracy it's much lower, you can skimp on it a bit more.  it has the built in residential bonus (50%?) to make up for it, and the cheap private market for the destock

Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: marx was right on August 15, 2016, 02:24:12 PM
are you researching most of that tech or buying it? I noticed researching a lot of tech takes up a fuckload of turns..
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on August 15, 2016, 03:36:19 PM
It's like everything.  Either you're a techer, in which case you're almost 100% labs.  In that case you make your own tech and sell it too.  Or you're not a techer, in which case you never spend turns teching and only buy it.

There's one slight twist here, and that's called the "tech start."  The tech start is when you plan to be a commie with all industries, or a casher with all cash buildings, and you lay some tech groundwork for that early in the round.  For example, you'd make your first 1900 buildings 100% labs, then research 50,000 points of indy tech, and then you knock down all the labs and build your industries.
Title: Re: earth empires

Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on August 15, 2016, 05:44:19 PM
you can spend turns cashing if youre a casher... all enterprise/residences.  then it's fine, although most turns shoudl be spent attacking/building if possible up until near the end
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: marx was right on August 15, 2016, 05:58:14 PM
i was making a lot of money, like 3 million a turn when i cashed. but i constantly had to buy bushels, military and oil and barely had enough for tech.
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on August 15, 2016, 06:13:19 PM
You should always have to buy bushels unless you're a farmer
Have to buy armies unless you're a commie
Have to buy tech unless you're a techer
and so on
never try to make anything yourself unless that's the thing you're specializing in

Oh yeah though commies can spend turns cashing too at the end.  Like when there's no more attacking or building to do and it's too late for exploring

Hm i thought you've played decent commie countries before.  youre a casher now, all enterprise zones and residences?  Casher is hard because tech is so expensive and it really depends on tech.

commie isnt too bad, even with zero tech (not ideal play) you can usually keep up for quite awhile.  literally just 100% indies +csites and sell your shit on the public market for money.  you do have to sit there waiting for stuff to sell in order to have money but shouldnt be an issue?

Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on September 02, 2016, 12:32:29 PM
yeah but theyre your secondary techs.  basically, your main focus is on indy tech and your next focus is on those, if you can afford them. at end of set (like on sunday when everything is selling for $1200 or whatever) it's easy to stock up on them, and worth it if you still have 360 turns on hand like i would.  also, all week i do buy the bus/res as a commie if i see it up there for cheap, but not if i see it expensive

Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on September 07, 2016, 06:38:39 PM
It's very fascist, and that's because of the implication that America is not already for Americans; ie that many citizens of the country are not true "Americans" (aka not white)
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: Alexhandr on September 07, 2016, 07:29:58 PM
But it is true. Many "citizens" are not citizens at all, but illegally here, and many people that are citizens want nothing to do with their nation or the betterment of their communities. I'm no ethno-nationalist, or fascist, but I do suppose I can be considered a nationalist. I don't partake well to labels though. Ideology is always poison. I digress! This web browser game is great and I'm glad I found it via you guys. Thank you kindly.

Lol too much.  Look at the private market, they're for sale $350 or something there so no one will ever pay that price.
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: marx was right on September 14, 2016, 01:49:20 PM
it was an accident,  i clicked on sell all and used the default price before there was any oil on the market.


maybe some scub newb will by some before there's cheaper stuff.

Post by: marx was right on September 15, 2016, 04:16:53 PM
it was dogshit prices in the morning.

  the market is volatile as fuck, it just went down to $45..
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on September 15, 2016, 06:09:11 PM
it's $70 now.

and btw, $45 is still high.  anything above $70 is the same thing as there not being any food on the market, basically.  it is not even playable, cant play.  have to sit there and wait for cheaper food.  i havent been able to play today

yeah thats annoying

im definitely going to go casher in express this set.  i really hope i can win this one more, so i can have gone "around the horn" (a thing i just made up (won with techer, won with commie, won with farmer, won with casher all in a row))

Post by: marx was right on September 22, 2016, 05:59:12 PM
is it a good strategy to be pure defense as a republic? that way you can save some money not having to buy oil all the time, and with the high explore rate you can still get good land (i'd already be closing on 8k land if i hadn't been hit 5 times).. and republics are -10% military strength and sux at war anyways.
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on September 22, 2016, 07:17:38 PM
It's good for as long as you're exploring.  Sooner or later, if you want to grow big, you need to attack.  Of course, you can go all explore and succeed that way as well but that has a ceiling.
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: marx was right on September 22, 2016, 07:30:52 PM
yea i guess that's the problem, once u get to a certain amount of land exploring will be useless.

Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on October 17, 2016, 12:05:50 PM
You shouldnt be a full set techer as a republic

You should use democracy or theocracy.  If you want to attack super aggressively maybe a tyrant or dict but that's a bit worse
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: marx was right on October 17, 2016, 12:50:17 PM
why would i tech as a theocracy, they have -35% max. technology
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on October 17, 2016, 12:57:48 PM
because thats not -35% tech produced, that's -35% tech bonuses which who cares, labs dont get better with tech.  like, yknow you cash more with bus/res tech, your industries make way more troops with indy tech, theres no tech that makes you tech better so theocracy can tech as well as anyone else.  and then at the end of the set when youve got money to buy networth with, you have tanks for like $420 or whatever and can jump up for a big finish

do u buy bushels at around $44-$47 or wait until it's cheaper?
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on October 19, 2016, 12:42:22 PM
$44-47 is acceptable.  if most food has been sub $40 then i may wait for more sub 40 but if im not sure if cheaper stuff is coming $45ish is fine

so when i cash i should use democracy first, 50k bus and  50k res tech  then convert to republic?
Title: Re: earth empires
Post by: eyyy im walkin here on October 25, 2016, 06:18:09 PM
No just use republic the whole time, it's better than Demo for this (cash bonus, explore bonus, demo has 0% market commissions but you're hardly selling anything)

Step 1) Build about 200-250 industries and get bpt to 45-50.  100% turret production, sell all the turrets over and over.  You don't actually need more than 5k, so sell the rest on the public (and private for your first 70 turns).

Step 2) 1900 land, 45 or 50 bpt, the rest all labs (you can knock down the industries).

Step 3) Tech the 50k bus/res

Step 4) Tear down the labs and replace with enterprise zones and residences.  You're a casher with good tech now

so you got like 850 bus 800 res 180 csite 200 indies?  plus 50k bus and res tech?  if so then yeah good job.  every turn you spend for the next day or so should be spent attacking, or building on captured land.  or exploring and building on explored land, to a lesser extent.

that's high lol.  Definitely not maximizing his income there but has he recently been hit by guerillas/bombing runs?  there's some merit in messing your tax rates in those circumstances to increases your production (production gets lowered if your population is below equilibrium, and you just had a bunch of civilians die, so your production is bad becaues of that. but if you raise the tax level your population is closer to where it should be. i think.  haven't dealt with this too much)

I have countries on the express and tournament server... have been teching mostly.. still working it all out. Anyone here still active?  (i.e. play / run a server / maintain the code....)
