.. so that are really out of what make sense ...
10th turn, AI Major Nation suddenly changes all his inf troops to GAUSS Rifles in an epic research game ...

and of course that range of many Strategic cards from 1d100 are insane, where you could get a terrible fail and 50% of your people die, to a result where all people suddenly love you ...

So the whole game could be ruined with a few random events, where you could nothing do ...
that is not, what a 4x game stands for !

combined with that long turn times, it is a waste to even try to play the game !

____________________________________________________________________

That game is really terrible unbalanced in some parts ...
First at all, it should never be possible to gain a free tech and use it , if I wouldn't be able to research it normal...

so you should only DISCOVER techs BUT that discovered techs could only be researched , if I would be able to DISCOVER it in a normal way, so if I discover GAUSS rifles with a random event, i could only research or use it, if I had researched everything before ...

that should be with all random events , the outcome should be CHANGED depending , how the nation situation is and not depending on pure 1d100 rolls ...

and once again an OPTION (for all trolls, have you understand that last word ?) to reduce the range of random events . like panzer corps 2 has it.

Has been that way since the 1.03 beta. 1.04 just came out.

Plus, last I heard the AI does not use the stratagems that could grant that anyway.

hhhmm started the game with 1.0.3 ... beta 10 ...

and Major Nation had GAUSS GUNS already researched AND used for all his troops in turn 10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So from where he got that and even the IP and resources to upgrade all his troops ...

and now in Turn 40 I found "Atom Bomb 10MT" and could choose it to be researched , because of EPIC research at least I only advance around 6% per turn , with 5 towns ...

but stopped now, as that nation with Gauss Guns already has conquered close the rest of the map ...

anyway has to stop, because it wasn't fun, neither for the other Major PC Nations :-)

Yes, the RNG is for times quite insane and that is exactly why I suggested quick save and quick load to be added.

Personally I run a scripts for quick load if I happen to do something especially dumb or not intended during a turn, as well as save-scumming script for the strategem cards to mitigate their RNG. I usually allow myself three or five rerolls tops to limit the time rerolled, except for leader generation and reloads for idiotic mistakes during turns.
