First of all, remember that you get twice as many points for killing people as you do for saving them. So, points wise, there is such a thing as "acceptable losses". As long as you kill more then half of what you die, you'll still come out ahead. So the important thing is to kill people! S...

It's never a problem for me. The Red navigation marker is great, because it lets you see if you missed setting a bomber on SRBM mode.

I just set them all on SRBM mode, then right click allt he time until I've gotten them in a nice big fleet. Then I send them of towards their targets.

I always go over greenland when I do it. North American is pretty defenseless if you can place two carrier fleets up there.

It started when I sent a wave of bombers from my carrier group and took out the US east cost. My comment: "I've always wanted to visit Washington. I guess I'm too late!" His reply was to hit my London with four or five nukes, after which he comments: "I hear London is nice this time o...

The trouble for europe seems to be that you can't really hide what you're doing since it's so easily scouted. While Russia, for example, can build up a massive heap of bombers out of radar range and then just swarm over the european defenses. And europe will have trouble responding since it doesn't ...

I don't feel guilty as the sounds of sick people coughing and crying in the background makes it feel like something has alreadcy happened (a conventional covert strike, biological warfare, etc) and that I'm down in the bunker with a bunch of civilians as well as military personel.

Yeah, ~5000 buyers in the first four hours is pretty good!

Anyone know how many units have to be sold for IV to break even? I mean, they have spent a lot of money on this project (18 months worth of wages + all the other stuff needed to make a game), and they are selling it for insanely cheap.

Jay! Golden Happiness! I wonder what happens with these gold discs after they're used. To they send them back to IV so they can keep them for safe keeping? Do they just throw them away? Sell them? Is there a Big Vault Of Gold Discs (called Fort Hacks, I believe) where every gold disc ever produced i...
