Proposal: Sun Tzu would be confused

Remove from the Conflict rule the line: “Each method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a Country using a certain Government Type.” and also remove all attack methods, except Pillage and Swindle and insert these Attack Methods:-

  • A Country may Assault another Country at a disputed Territory. This reduces the defender’s presence by any amount up to the attacker’s presence and reduces the attacker’s presence by that same amount, but no more than the defender’s original presence (before it was reduced). Assault cannot be used against a Country using the same government type as the attacker.
  • A Country may Intimidate another Country at a disputed Territory. This converts a number of the defender’s presence units into an equal number of native population units. This number has to be less than the attacker’s presence. Intimidate cannot be used against a Country if that is the only Country using a specific government type.
  • A Country using Despotism may Dominate. If the attacker has an attacking presence that is at least equal to the size of the defending presence, e may take control of a piece of Machinery from that Territory and move it to an adjacent Territory (it may be machinery that has not been completed). This Attack Method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a defender using Feudalism.
  • A Country using Feudalism may Crusade. If the attacker has an attacking presence that is at least equal to the size of the defending presence, e may demolish a construction in that Territory (it may be a construction that has not been completed). This Attack Method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a defender using Anarchy.
  • A Country using Neorobotnikism may Exterminate. This reduces the defender’s presence by twice the attacker’s presence, and then reduces the attackers presence by twice the defender’s original presence (before it was reduced). This Attack Method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a defender using Telecracy.
  • A Country using Telecracy may Mind Control. This transfers population units from the defending presence to the attacking presence. The amount transferred may be up to the square root of the defending presence (rounding all fractions up to the nearest integer), but no more than size of the attacking presence. This Attack Method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a defender using Neorobotnikism.

I’m trying to balance out the attack methods a bit and give some other attack options. Dominate and Crusade are completely changed, with the new universal attack methods Intimidate and Assault taking on their previous styles of attack. Mind Control is weakened and Exterminate no longer cares about native population. I still plan to make an Invade attack method for attacking controlled Territories, but haven’t figured it out yet.
