My turnplaying duty begins with much worst situation than I expected.
As I logged today to look around I had an unpleasant surprise, so I have to tell you what the situation is and to ask of your opinion of how to proceed with the current situation that our war with Merlots turns to a challenging endeavor.
I have some bad news and few good ones.
And as I know that a picture worth more than 1000 words, here are 2 screenshots from the current turn.
As you can see, Merlots have started to upgrade archers to xbows and they are now after us. Our axes are no longer a reliable weapon against those devil's inventions - the crossbows. We must retreat and look how to save our soldiers and how to protect our property and our position on Martathon and the international political scene.
But before to talk about immediate tactics, we must decide how to proceed in the major strategy.
Option one is we to defend Nabaxica and the sea and wait for us to have better technology that will assure us superiority on the battlefield to come back and fight again on and for Martathon. In this case our citizens will be sure and our belongings safe. But it will be a hit to our reputation and a ground for the other teams - allies and foes alike to start thinking about us as losers. And this is dangerous.
Option two is to focus everything on military and drive them from the battlefield.
The good news are that I can do this for the team.
So I think we have to vote or at least you must authorize me to use the whip, the saw and whatever it takes to crush Merlots and to claim Marthaton as ours and only ours.
If there is need the strategy to be voted, please Sommerswerd, do a poll.
