If somebody violates your enjoyment of the game or you simply disagree with their personality or tactics, war is an option.
Remember, wars are announced via the worldly newspaper, and the international community is always watching. If you are seen as an unjust warmonger, you will gain few friends, and may even be attacked by the larger players.
You can start a war. Click on “War Situation Index” and pick your enemy! Make sure you have at least three defensive radar planes to optimize your air defense and also three offensive radar planes so that you can plan your attack in detail. If you attack, aim at the defense units and garrisons first and destroy them, before you attack the target itself. Sometimes it is better not to destroy the target but rather to move your army units past the unprotected target, and occupy large areas of the enemy’s country. Make sure you have enough well equipped military units with many offensive weapons and ammunition before you start a war.
Fighting wars is not without consequence, though. Beside the bad image you create for yourself, people in both countries will die and your economy will suffer significantly. If things really turn for the worse, your enemy will gain control over your country and transfer money and people to his/her own country.
If your country is conquered, it will become part of his (or her) empire and you will have no control. The country will move from your account to the account of your enemy.
There is no other choice than to choose another country, play it better this time and maybe take revenge some day and even regain control over your old country.
You can sign a peace treaty with another country. All peace treaties are enforced by the game procedures and the two parties are unable to declare war on each other for the duration of the agreement. Click on “Peace Treaties” on the left frame or in the menu at the top of the page.
The peaceful game – no defense needed
The first country of each player, on all worlds except for Fearless Blue, is always placed under secured mode and will not participate in any war.
Playing in secured mode, you will be able to build an army and even wage war and conquer a computer controlled country but you will not be able to attack any country with a president and nobody can attack your country.
You play mainly the economic part of the game and you are free from any possible war. Your country cannot be conquered by anyone.
Only one country in your empire is in secured mode (the leader of the empire). All other countries you have conquered or purchased play the full game and do participate in the war game. The leader country is frequently used as a safe place to keep many of the large empire assets including cash and the main corporations.
