Proposal: Revenge of the natives

The natives are too easily oppressed. If a country were to have less population than the natives due to a population revolt, then they still get to Suppress the native population, which doesn’t make any sense.

In rule 10.1.4.1 change

Population Revolt - The native population of the occcupied Territory fights back, and the occupying Country loses DICEY population presence in that territory, where Y is the occupying population amount in that Territory. If DICEY is equal to Y, the revolt has been successful, and none of the remaining steps occur.

for Ah, so this should increase the number of successful revolts?

against So we’ll need to have twice as much population in the territory as the natives just to have a 50% chance to take it over? I don’t think so.

Power to the people. This could slow things down a little bit. :)

They’re natives, not genetically enhanced dinasours with shotguns. If you want to make it harder to take over territories, try to up the amount of occupying population needed to half the native population or something.

against I’m tending to veto this, over grounds of the voting on the last proposal I posted about this subject.

So, the problem is the random aspect of it, right?

It’s hard enough to take over a territory!  A week of production isn’t enough, we also need to have twice the population for a 50% chance?

Lets combine this with the fact that we need to feed this population before we have the production from the new territory and I envision many starving countries and very slow movement.

against I’m convinced and will change my vote.

against S-K. I misread the rule. I thought that you needed 4 times the native population to take over.
