I usually start at 10 days, however, you can tank the extra expenses pretty easily for the first 3 days. Crippler is pretty close, you only really get 5-6 days of extra income.

As Bug said, they have the cheapest prices possible for military, however once you factor in the cost of the oil, things change. The advantage it has is reliability, and it is easier to stockpile. I think the maximum I can get with my Theo techers naturally is around 650m doing a PM destock, however if you get higher amounts of land then 70k, the oil destock works better.

It all depends on the cost of oil. Generally speaking, if oil is over 400$ for the set, and you arent making your own, a natural PM destock will work better. Even if oil is relatively cheap, you aren't really saving money, unless the market is empty, or extremely high priced.

Congrats ICD and Bug, you guys pulled solid results. Was it you with the 7.7b country Beerdrinker? How much extra NW would you have gotten had all your oil sold?

Do you have the same building types as the target you are grabbing? That is usually the case. You have to have a minimum of 10% of the targets buildings to get a return.

To maximise grab numbers, you really want to grab someone within 10% of your NW. Now farming bots, that is usually unobtainable, so just go for the biggest targets that are not in DR that you can (that portion is a bit of a pain).

Hey Andrew, the dynamics are a lot different nowadays. Most netters tend to do an oil destock because it is a reliable way to get your finish, with you being able to bring in income until the end. The downside of this, is that there isn't as much of a need for food, vs a non oil destock, so the food prices havent been going up hard last few sets. Tech can be all over the place, from anywhere from 3k to 6k depending on how many big land player techers there are.

There was always a DR factor for multiple landgrabs, we just didnt notice it as much vs players, as it didnt come up as often. Typically I will have 2 attack styles. One is 3PS on first country, 2PS on second (that is the most efficient way to gain land turnwise), on countries that have a similar building makeup as you. Or I will do 4 sets of SS on each of 3-4 countries when I am gaining land hard, (with 2 hits on each of the last 2 being PS).

Dict ghost acres do work (Basically all the ghost acres go to extra free buildings)! I had one set where I got 16 dicts farmers to 150k acres each, built as a war country, and fought Hawk and his 300m NW tyrs. Between the two of us, I think close to 7b troops were killed, over a week and a half. Had I gone for pure NW, I probably only woulda been around 500-600m. Having more land though means you can PM destock without oil, and do the 48 hour login purchase rotation, and you can still get good numbers.

I always enjoy helping out folks, I usually message a number of the smaller tags just to see how they are doing, and if they wish to have a DNH.

That being said, to answer the original question about best netter, I have only been playing for the last 8 sets I think, took a 5 year break. In the last 8 sets, I managed to get the highest series NW ever recorded in FFA (25b for series), out of the top 5 countries ever in ffa, I have 3 of them. In addition, out of the 8 sets I played, I only netted for 5 of them, and in 4 got top country (and at worst, 2nd or 3rd series NW). I also have the highest value of top 3 countries avg by 2b NW on the boards. Getting top 10 placements is more about how many sets you have played. Getting highest series NW is a finite thing, you have it or you do not ;)

Do bots normally cease all purchases and market transactions for the last 24 hours of the game?

I was just destocking my jets because I finished grabbing. Selling jets is to players, as bots do not buy it, so market value is very relative (I think I had them at 169). I buy like 200-300m military units a day, so it didnt even occur to me that 30m might block someone's transfer!

I tried that in FFA, I was able to kill around 240 of them. I would say I was able to change the market price and availability of raw resources, but I was not able to come close to killing enough to make a difference. I didn't notice many bots restarting however, the largest number country was not increasing as fast as the bots were dying by a long shot.

I experimented, and killed about 40% of the land of all of the "Farmer" Bots, and saw a substantial decrease in the food market supply with a big price spike.

When we are farming bots hard, we are attacking probably around 450 times a day, on 100 different targets. No one bothers to even look at the name, but people see tags, and generally avoid them then.

If you are not tagged, it takes more effort then people are willing to spend to decide if someone is a bot or not.

I heard from someone who said they talked to a seasoned player once, that if your country can have some of every building, you can be completely independent of the market, and save on that 6% market tax. Over time you will be super rich!
