Indeed, most of those questions have been either answered or obvious.
1) Alliances in a game don't need to kill themselves.
2) Obviously, yes.
3) Defcon units
4) See point 3.
5) See point 4
6) Obviously, yes.
7) Possibly.
8) 5
9) Its more likely the IV community will do that kind of thing although its possible.

When doing searches you need to wait roughly 20 to 30 seconds between each.

As for the Poll, I'm guessing Chris will be the first to be playing. :P

P.S. In future you may want to run your posts through a spellchecker.

Yes

There's a topic either further down the page or on the next one explaining why there are none

The video's should show you that you can use silos to protect yourself

dakenho wrote:6. will defcon suporta a lan mode

Yes.

Yes

You can't eat an "appel". It doesn't exsist.

NDA!

As for the poll, I've had a game with Chris, John and Icepick at random times :)

8) Or you could be crafty and know how to tell phpBB not to parse 8) into 8)

Or rather, a quote from the official site:
Start by launching your battleships, subs and bombers in order to decimate your opponent's defences. Scramble together your alliances but remember only one can stand victorious.

Silly Thermic, NDA doesn't cover publically released information or lack of information!

I haven't heard anything about tournies being hosted by IV, but you know what? I see no reason why they would just release a good multiplayer game and just say "We're done with it. Now buy it and just have fun with it. We have other projects to attend to and have no time to promote Defcon beyond Steam promotions." I'm not saying there will definately be official tournaments, I'm saying it's practically an inevitability.

Victorious isn't the same as being the only winner. Do note that.

You saying everyone who plays the game is a loser? :wink:

Ofcourse there are winners. They will be the people who suffered the least.

*brain explodifies itself... in confusion* But aren't the people who suffered the least the smallest losers? There are no winners in Global Thermonuclear War remember?
