Thanks for the information. I dont mind losing battles i just didnt want to be fighting guys who are massive in comparison say if they have been playing for months and months. i would be playing the online game part. not much of a single player type. How does it work for online, i create a city and the nim placed on a map with other players i would assume. i build up and then if someone wants to war me then only people who are the same level fight me? Does the game cost money per month or is it one time fee to buy the game?
