Understanding Takeovers
« Topic Start: May 23, 2017, 09:18:12 PM »
I have some questions about Takeovers in general.
  • Is there any game-mechanic difference between hostile and friendly takeovers?
  • Do Friendly takeovers make the population like you more?
  • Do Brutal takeovers complete faster? Is there a point to balanced TO options?
  • If your unit has more men, how much more effective are you at TO actions by contributing percentage?
  • When TO's are complete, shouldn't the region be at core control initially before depreciating?
I have been unable to answer these questions when asked and would like more insight. Thanks!

1. I don't think so. The progress is tracked separately obviously.
2. No, it's intended but never implemented as far as I know
3. No & No
4. I would have to look into the code for that
5. I don't have a specific feeling about that.

At this point, no. There should be, in the future. As we've stated since 2012. :P

Do Friendly takeovers make the population like you more?
No, but it should. See above.

Do Brutal takeovers complete faster?
No (I think).

Being a maverick? I think there may be (either implemented or planned), but not sure on what they may be.

You should know by now we don't give out those specific details. Suffice to say, the more men you have, the more effective you are at supporting takeovers.

I don't think it should, but am not 100% certain on post-TO region statuses.
