one of the main problems i have while playing is not noticing large incoming force. i'm constantly at war so there is always a red message to upper left telling me about so and so forces in my area. 95 percent of the time it is a repeat message about a lone ship somewhere around my shores. but i always get screwed because i stop reading the message for the 50th time in a row and a real force lands right next to my weakest city. this is usually my biggest downfall in a game over and over again. i don't know if anyone else has this problem but i have a suggestion solution. have a more significant warning system when someone lands right next to a city or has a force more than 3 w/ in range of a city. a louder sound or a warning centered in the middle of screen.
