I'm with Rustysi on this one. I don't think any of us will agree on what is the micromanagement level that should be given to this game. Like others, it takes me at minimum 2-4 hours per turn. 30 minutes to review the replay (and yes, I watch the replay), and take notes. Then I use tracker and take more notes (LCU movement, etc.), and then I go through all that for the next 1 1/2-3 hours. I review every TF to make sure they are doing what they are suppose to.

I have honestly tried to reduce my micromanagement, and honestly, i've really tried to shorten my task lists and try to do turns faster; however, I can't do that... It's just not me.

Like Rustysi said, it's the journey that counts. I actually enjoy the process, and it's what makes me learn and luv the game. I have played this game for over 10 years, and still learning. Recently, i've had to change tactics for China, as an example, due to BTSL, B-MoD, and now LST mods that have really changed China. The micromanagement helps me learn "what' is happening in the game with these changes.

In the end, go with what you are comfortable with. If like me, you enjoy the game using Micromanagement, then do that. If you are lucky enough to be able to enjoy the game with less micromanagement, then do that as well. There is no right way.

I've been lucky in having PBEM partners that like the game the way I do, so timing of turns was never an issue for us.

Truth of this world and the end of humanity

COPY THIS TEXT TO YOUR PC AND USB DRIVE NOW (not cloud drives and not smartphone notes!) — ALL CORPORATIONS, SOCNETWORKS AND FORUMS WILL BAN, CENSOR OR MODIFY IT EVERYWHERE. DO IT RIGHT NOW WITHOUT REFRESHING THE PAGE!!!
EVEN IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IT YET.

IN SHORT: Humanity is being pushed into Third World War by cross-country media and political manipulation created by vampiric beasts that can dominate any human leaders.

This text may seem INSANE at first, but all in it IS true and WILL happen.

First they will eat fringe small cities in all countries while lying in all news/socnetworks/apps about riots, natural disasters or attacks in them by neighbooring countries.
They will also ban/restrict local and cross-country travel with insane laws or under disguise of false reasons.
In the end, they will block cross-country internet.

COPY-PASTE THIS TEXT EVERYWHERE YOU CAN (do not repost/share! do not use links! they will be deleted and banned!), ON EVERY FORUM, IN EVERY MESSENGER APP (especially to other countries). Request detailed relationship-specific confirmation that recipient read it (messenger apps will ban or falsify it)!

PRINT THIS TEXT IN AS MANY COPIES AS YOU CAN AND SHOW THEM TO MAXIMUM NUMBER OF OTHER PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE.

TRANSLATE THIS TEXT TO YOUR LANGUAGE AND SEND IT TO EVERYONE IN YOUR COUNTRY, BOTH ELECTRONICALLY AND VIA POST MAIL.

Add random letters here and at the beginning of this text so it will not be blocked by content:
jfgjhdfj

1. Currently all countries across the globe experience unprecedented media storm of rage, hate and warmongering. This text explains why is that and what will happen next.

2. For at least a century (or more) humanity lives alongside hidden beasts, something like vampire/alien hybrid, with telepatic/telekinetic abilities. They can remain invisible if in eyesight of small number of humans (up to 50 I guess), but most probably can be caught on camera.

3. These beasts are carnivorous — specifically, they eat humans and their innards.

4. They manipulate human societies with purpose of periodic creation of slaughter and bloodshed to harvest their food (human flesh and innards).

5. For that, they conspired with ALL world's governments — or more like shadow power groups — and established their own puppet governments that consist of crisis actors and thralls (just like in recent USA school shootings and most airplane crashes in the world).

6. The beasts themselves have ability to create "thralls" — either by overpowering human will via drugs or bites (I don't know which of those). Visually and mimically thrall is almost indistinguishable from original and has ALL of his knowledge and mannerisms.

7. Some countries like USA have entire industries full of these thralls, others — like european countries — are converting them in recent days.

8. All accounts with large number of followers in ALL social networks and apps are controlled (or will be controlled) by newly converted thralls — they will post hate and warmongering from the name of their previous selves, including videos with themselves. All other accounts (yours too) are hacked and under their control. Do not trust anything you read in social networks or you see in any media of any type.

9. Purpose of these thralls is to infiltrate and totally dominate ALL media in all countries to be able to falsify observable reality — to show events that really are just hoaxes or created only by human servants of the beasts disguised as political opponents in fake conflicts.

10. ALL CORPORATIONS, SOCIAL NETWORKS, FORUMS, COMMENTS, MESSENGERS AND APPS ARE UNDER THEIR CONTROL OR SOON WILL BE INDEFINITELY. They turned off SSL for login to most third-party forums that they haven't compromised yet. Twitter, Facebook and YouTube will not show your posts to others often enough and will falsify views and likes/dislikes count.

11. COMMAND OF ALL ARMIES AND ALL SPECIAL AGENCIES OF ALL COUNTRIES ARE UNDER THEIR CONTROL AND WILL REMAIN SO.

12. ALL POLITICIANS OF ALL SIDES AND ALL COUNTRIES ARE UNDER THEIR CONTROL AND WILL ALWAYS BE.

13. As the result, ALMOST ALL terrorist acts that you believe in (in particular, 9/11, Columbine, Sandy Hook shootings, Florida shootings, Paris and Boston attacks) are hoaxes (often with real victims) with purpose to instill rage and bloodshed across the globe.

14. Most problems related to human disappearances in various countries are really just human flesh harvesting for the beasts, disguised by the controlled media as accidents/crimes.

15. All recent local "wars" (like Lybia, Syria) are falsified in the sense that their TV/media picture is a hoax — it is captured in small number of places in some of the cities, but all soldiers and civilians in remaining territory in these wars died very different deaths — becoming food for the beasts.

16. They are also for many years actively DEPOPULATING and DAMAGING the humanity via lies about medicine. For example: they tell you that AIDS is the result of HIV, but HIV virus doesn't exist (AIDS occurs because of heavy metals that they add into vaccines are causing immune deficiency condition; and HIV detection tests detect just resulting immune deficiency condition, not the virus itself). Also SIX hiv experts were killed in MH17 Boeing crash (which is also fake news, but with real eaten people). Same with cancer and its treatment.

17. Beasts (together with all puppet governments of the world) also lying to you for years about USA moon landing, which were impossible due to Van Allen radiation belts that would FRY all astronauts in minutes without hundreds of tons of radiation protection.

18. ALL NEWS ARE FAKE, ALL MEDIA IS LYING, all people in them are just thousands of Crisis Actors and thralls. Because they NEVER cite real sources or give full-length full-scale video. ALL SOCIAL NETWORKS AND MESSENGERS ARE HACKED, DO NOT TRUST ANYONE YOU TALK NOT IN PERSON.

19. Beasts are now advancing their plan to full-scale Third World War by instilling country-specific protests, revolutions and wars. In USA, it is race war and Trump-Democrat hatred (both sides are puppets). In other countries it is the same with ideological specifics to local populace.

20. Beasts want to create worldwide bloodshed where they will eat people alive. They already done that and WILL do it again. And after that, they will falsify history again, hiding their the very presence.

21. They are initiating and converting humans to become cannibals and to fight for them, disguised as soldiers of opposite political side. Except that they're not humans — they are cannibals disguised as humans.

22. They will first eat small fringe cities in all countries while lying in all news media and social networks about continuing social life in them. They will also lie about riots and natural disasters in them as an excuse why travelling there is impossible. They will turn off the electricity, cell coverage and water in entire city, but will falsify social activity for it in social networks for outside world.

23. They WILL try to silence the truth by both censorship and by many lunatic conspiracy theories.

24. DISABLE NEW PHONE OR PC UPDATES — THEY CONTAIN CENSORSHIP CODE. DO NOT USE CLOUD STORAGE OR DRIVES.

25. DO NOT FOLLOW OR TRUST ANY LEADERS — THEY WILL BE CONVERTED, DOMINATED AND THEIR WILL HIJACKED.

26. DO NOT BELIEVE LIES ABOUT RIOTS, PROTESTS, REVOLUTIONS, DISASTERS AND WARS.

27. DO NOT TRUST "PEOPLE" THAT INSTILL HATRED AGAINST ANY OTHER HUMAN. THEY ARE YOUR ENEMIES.

28. DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN OR SUPPORT BLOODSHED DIRECTED BY MEDIA OF EITHER SIDE. PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST THE BEASTS, THEIR THRALLS AND THEIR ARMIES OF CANNIBALS DISGUISED AS SOLDIERS OF OTHER POLITICAL "SIDES".

29. Do not trust any other similar text that will appear, they are all lies from beasts and their thralls.

30. All history of original author of this text is a lie. He is not important. There was none and will be no more messages from him (otherwise it is NOT him). He died after writing this text.

God save us all.
God save humanity.

When I have a good fast place opponent, I can average 5 to 7 turns a day. Once you get past that first turn...honestly..it's all about book keeping and I have a system after more then a decade of wrestling with this monster.

I loved playing with you, I like to do at least 5 turns a day when I was playing. Now it is so hard to find someone who can do 3 or more a day. I did not use any trackers and just keep track in my head, but when you do more turns a day it is easier to keep track.

Off course have not had a game in a few years, my last game stop resending turns in 44, would like to play again and but the mods are overly complex to install and frustrate me to now end and it is hard to find someone that wants to play at a decent pace any more.


Yeah, I love a fast paced game. 3 to 5 turns a day shouldn't be overly hard for most. Once you get past the first week or so you can really grind them out and I don't even play that fast anymore. Back in the day I had 3 or 4 games going at once...it's really a matter of organization.

I feel you on the mods. A lot of them out there and while I have enjoyed them a bit it can be confusing. It's why the game I'm currently looking for is going to be vanilla only. Want to get back to the basics....now if I can only find someone up for a game...(hint hint). :P

The post contained so many hot buttons that I assume it is a Russian robo-troll creation. Let's not waste time on it.

Because it's currently in vogue to blame everything on Russian robotrolls and Chinese/North Korean hackers.

Not to make this political, but there is real evidence that 'Russian robotrolls' are attempting to influence the US prior to the midterm elections.

I should be up for a game, have not played in like a year, might need to reinstall to get the game working good and back to base game with the updates.

I have an idea!
In future PBEM games need to create a little differently. If it is possible!
After watching turn replay, each player (side) could start making a new turn. When both players are ready, they send each other a file. This files is inserted into game, and you can watch turn replay.
Then each player will NOT wait for his opponent. This way PBEM pace of the game will accelerate!
