Are you a master war player or maybe even just testing out the c3 war game? If so, I've got an opportunity for you. If you take down a c3 of war level 10 or higher, I'll buy that country from you for 215 GC (netting you 200 GC after the transaction fee). I don't care if the country is stripped and 1T in debt (the max of debt that you can sell a country anyway), it's not about the value of the country but instead the value of information.
In order to qualify you must post the name of the attacking country and the defending country (new name if you changed after conquering it). You must also post the quality of the weaponry that you used in addition to your strategy for taking down Air D (or shooting past it) and then ultimately destroying the corps/cities/forts/etc.
For now, I'll do one country per player only but if you do have two or more completely different and successful strategies I'll do more and if you have a strategy that is off the charts successful, I'd be willing to throw more your way. It doesn't matter which world you're on (but you do have to post the name of the world in addition to the requested information above).
Why would I do this, I'm sure you're asking. Well, there seems to be no one willing to buy my assets for a price I'd be willing to sell them for and I don't have anyone that I'd like to just give them to (Aries is the most deserving because he already came close to taking down my countries but he's already stacked with assets). So, I may as well start spending what I have instead of handing it over to the GM's and if I can do that while helping other players who want better strategies to gain assets, that's even better. That's why I want the names of the countries posted as well as the strategies, hopefully they are also ultimately useful to other players.
To go out with a bang I'm also building my assets back up to set up for a winner takes all contest to win whatever I have left, but I want to make sure it's earned, so it's not going to be easy. I'll update everyone when I'm ready for that but for those of you who are interested in getting ready, WB 001 AB FB is the country name on FB.

This is a very interesting and exciting challenge. I am now reformulating my short-term game goals, to potentially join in on the fun that this contest could become.
I have been playing for 3 months now, and reaching WL10 this early in the game was not one of my optimistic goals. I believe that I could, but, it would take a few weeks to set my empire on a new course.
Do you have a timeline in mind for this very generous exit strategy? I would hate to watch this ship set sail without me.

Good idea though.

Hello Papa, you've got a few months unless it gets crazy popular and I run out of GC. Happy hunting!

Increase our war levels? Well that sounds like a good idea! Not interested in selling though. I went ahead and increased my war level and this is how I did it:
BRNN SPECIAL REPORT
By executive order of the President, Republic forces sent 80 Offensive Anti-Air divisions, 4 Precision Bomber wings, 10 Special Forces units escorted by 250 Interceptor wings, 150 Helicopter wings, 74 Fighter Planes wings, 12 Attack Helicopter wings, 10 Heavy Tank divisions to Ashville Outpost in Ashville West region. Transport took approximately 2 Terran days.
President West awoke from a deep rest and began drinking coffee from his canteen, then gave the word to his military staff to begin operations against the wicked sodomites of Martha Bel. Byzenti Republic (WL9) invaded the Independent State of Martha Bel (C3WL10).
Republic Offensive Anti-Air batteries began clearing Martha Bel's skies with very minimal losses. Martha Bel forces immediately reacted with Stealth Bomber wings and Mobile Conventional Missiles units. Martha Bel's Stealth Bombers and Mobile Conventional Missile batteries were rapidly removed by Republic Interceptors and Helicopters, assisted by some Interceptors and Helicopters based in Ashville outpost. Republic Offensive Anti-Air batteries completed clearing Martha Bel's skies with no further losses besides some ammo. Republic Precision Bombers dropped gifts to Martha Bel's ground defense units, then Republic Attack Helicopters proceeded to remove Martha Bel's ground defense units from the battlefield.
Republic Precision Bombers then levelled Martha Bel's capital city, Afla, and all other cities/corporations and some fortifications. Republic Special Forces began presence patrols throughout Martha Bel.
Approximately 20 Terran minutes after invasion began, Martha Bel surrendered to Republic forces, which then fed Martha Bel's president to a bear. Republic forces captured Martha Bel's Mobile Conventional Missile units. President West finished his coffee.
Martha Bel was renamed Byzentusi Weapons Testing Area. President West then addressed his people where he thanked Aries the God of War for training Republic generals. After Republic forces have withdrawn from the land it will be released to the people of Martha Bel so that they may forge their own destiny now that they have been liberated from their oppressive dictator.
It's been leaked from an advisor close to the President that it's planned Republic forces will soon double its strength before proceeding with further combat operations.

I reviewed the log. Not bad. Just a few things I would do different.
1. After you took out all the helicopters you preceded to take out all of the interceptors. I estimate that taking out 80 480 qua interceptor wings would require around 180,000 offensive aa missiles. You did this so that you could use precision bombers later but you could have instead ignored the interceptors and replaced the bomber use with a combination of mid-range batteries, land-based cruise, and conventional missile batteries.
2. You attacked the C3s offensive air units which expended ammo for little war score gain.
3. Again on bomber use, destroying a fort takes about 800 precision bombs. Alternatively, it takes about 50 land-based cruise missiles.

Thanks for further knowledge Aries, always much appreciated.
I've had bad results with mid range missile batteries in the past but that's probably because I didn't use them right.
Next time I'll try mid range missiles and conventional/cruise missiles again and see how that goes! That is a really good idea to go that route because I unnecessarily expended a lot of Off AA missiles on those Interceptors.
and why I attacked the offensive air units, I don't know hahah. You're right that was wasteful and didn't make sense, I guess I just wanted to make the sky blue and the ground red.

Thanks for sharing John!

You're welcome. Still learning the art of war, but I think I have at least the basics down alright so far. By the way, I thought I had captured Mobile Conventional Missile units, as I was sure not to "destroy" them for that reason, but I guess not because I don't know where they went. Perhaps you don't get mobile units left over after you take C3 countries ??
| Sunday, March 6, 2016 - 11:42 pm |
Yeah, it's unfortunate but you don't get to keep the weaponry that is left once you take a c3. There are always a few weapons left, def batts here and there, some ammo and some o weps but not anywhere near what there should be if the weapons/ammo stayed in the country.

Hmmm I am on WL 11 on FB. I may consider this. I have been thinking about going up to WL 12 and why not now with a little extra incentive.

Go for it Zen! Offer is still wide open!

Spring break starts on Friday. It's tempting.
