I hate techer! I could get 100m if tech was great, but I could also end up with 60m most likely. I usually only go techer if I don't feel like grabbing much. Getting my tech stuck on the market is a whole other thing, lol.

How you play techer now varies quite a bit from how you used to play it, I think most players play it the same way tho. You just gotta jump early very early. the first bots jump very early after midnight gametime on sunday, and you gotta be there buying those sweet $90-110 turrets/jets and not let that first bot jumper get it.

Remember those 6k acres all-xp techer bots who get hit a decent amount they still finish at over 20m NW sometimes, just because they jump before ya'll who are techers now.

Yeah, I agree. I also tend to get my tech too late to capitalize on high tech prices. Going to 15k right away and stocking with an early jump could be great.

Techers are the worst because prices drop to early in game because of bots. If the stop bots from selling Friday night it would be 100% better

If you ask certain people techers will always be the best strat on express because 70k acre techer can still sell tech at 1k which is over 20m per turn...

I am frustrated with Express, Regardless of government or strategy I try, come Sunday all my countries go in to free fall. And I didn't get hit or have a cash/ bushel shortage, and still drop to 60 place. :( ?

Players are doing a networth jump at the end to gain a huge amount of networth via military. You do it all at the very end so you dont have to pay the expenses holding the military every turn.

You've been told the answer so many times but you don't seem to want to listen.

Here's the essence of the problem:

Enterprise Zones 1062
Residences 1016
Industrial Complexes 1541
Military Bases 0
Research Labs 2112
Farms 11,777
Oil Rigs 508
Construction Sites 200
Unused Lands 20

Still building rainbows set after set.
Also there are other issues like I'm not sure why you need over half a million spies draining your food and income in express.

You're either stupid or just being an idiot, Ratski.


I can't count with all my fingers and toes combined how many times people told you to specialize on a strat that can get you in top of the rankings.

Seriously!

Good point, I wish we had $1k auto buy in Primary....but it'll probably throw everything else off balance :-/

I think I’d rather say your feathers have an uncanny similarity.

Also, looking at the news this set… I’d say there’s a flock of you with that similarity.

Probably a stray flock that flew in together from a different server?

I can't play this next round ether, I am going on a road trip , no place to play on line, and I still don't own a smart phone, never will.
A two week break might be a good idea.

hi, what do you mean by at the very end? how many hours is that before the reset?

Usually between 2 minutes and 120 minutes before the end in express, unless they are techers who should jump much sooner than that. It depends a lot on strategy but also the individual preferences I guess.
