I have played the whole game now for first time. from 39-45 axis side. I think I got 2-3 diplomatic points over the course of they game and they didnt seem to make much difference.
I had diplomacy on.
Maybe you could key the influence point to specifik events like when taking important events like Paris, Vichy, Madrid, Gibraltar, Alger, Malta, Alexandria, Cairo, Warsaw, Riga, Leningrad, Moscow, Rostov, Sevastapol, Oil hexes and Baku for Axis or similiar. For Alies the liberation of Paris, Vichy cities, Rome, Sicily, Tripli, Tobruk, Warsaw, Ploesti, Axis minor capitols for an example. And each objective gave a diplomacy point(influence)
Along with some automatic point each year spread out for both axis and allies to be able to sway the opinion of minor countries.
