So while I was looking at the world map the other day I noticed the number of countries utilizing the airstrike feature, Argentina air striking the UK, the Republic of Moldova air striking Malaysia, Bosnia and Herzegovina air striking India, you get the idea.
remember when Cod was good?
So as I zoomed around on the old world map I happened to be looking at the Central US when an idea occurred to me. Why not allow Albania to airstrike the US? They could get four resources from us very easily, it would help to reinforce our bond of brotherhood even more (as if thats even possible) and it might make the next time someone invades us very interesting, having an ally and true brother to coordinate with to defend our land. Unfortunately this idea had barely begun to take shape when I realized that it would be impossible.
here you can see numerous ways we could provide our Albanian friends with four bonuses, without losing any of our own
The reason this idea is impossible is that our tow clicking population is so strong that the Albanians would be unable to hold onto any regions we lent them, and our enemies would launch resistance war after resistance war to siphon our damage away from where it was really needed.
here you can see American damage being sucked deep into an abyss from which it will never return
This is why I want to put out the call to the admins to make region renting a feature that is supported in the game. Its something that the players of this game have been taking part in for a long time and has become common place. It is also clear that region renting makes the game more interesting and provides opportunities to less populated countries that otherwise would not exist. Congress should be able to pass laws that rent out regions to other countries for an agreed upon sum of money, for an agreed upon period of time. During this time it should be impossible to launch a resistance war in that region. Are there bigger issues facing this game right now? Of course, the economic module doesn't really exist anymore, the media is basically dead, and the battles we fight in are so meaningless that nobody even bothers to report on them anymore. But that doesn't mean we should stop trying to improve this game in small ways as well.
Well thats my rant for right now, let me know what you think about an in game feature supporting region renting in the comments.
