War against C3 countries (countries without a president)
A new war declaration function is added to Simcountry today.
Fighting a war against a C3 country, you have two different choices deciding on the war level attached to the C3 country.
Until now, after winning a war against a C3 country, your own country moved to a next war level.
you received a gold coin award, depending on the war level of the C3 country you fought.
Wars became much harder when your war level increased and the gold coin awards increased accordingly.
In the new situation, you can choose to fight a C3 country as before and move to a new war level
You can choose to continue to fight against C3 countries of the same war level as the previous war and continue doing so several times.
The war level of the C3 country you fight against depends on the size of your empire.
If your empire on the world were the war is declared has less than 5 countries, you can fight against a C3 country of war level 3.
If your empire has 5 countries of more, but less than 10 countries, you can fight at a lower war level but in this case, the C3 country will have war level 5.
If your empire has 10 countries or more, you can fight at a lower war level but in this case, the C3 country will have war level 7.
This new type of war declaration significantly reduces the effort needed to win a war against a C3 country.
On the other hand, such a war will not deliver any gold coins.
The choice to fight wars against C3 countries with increasing war levels and winning gold coin awards remains as before.
The functions is developed as promised in multiple discussions on the forum.
In the coming weeks we will probably receive comments from players on how they experience its use.
We may, at a later time, tune the function, repair any possible errors in the implementation and discuss its future use.
The game documentation is not undated yet.
We will update the game documentation by use of the same text as published here, in the next game update.

Oh i thought it would have been based off of the player war level not empire size
Reason being, some of us bought c3
Like i have 15 states but my war level is 3
So how would that work in this case

i think linking war level to the size of empire makes sense, good work Andy

If you have 15 countries and you are in WL 3 there are two options:
you could choose to fight a C3 based on your war level.
This means that the next war will be at war level 3, and when you win, you move to war level 4.
you can continue along this line and receive gold coin awards.
you can choose to fight a C3 country based on the size of your empire, and wars will be at war level 7 and continue on at war level 7.
we might introduce an empire size which is larger than 10 and then fighting at a higher war level.
Very large empires are more difficult to create and even more difficult to keep profitable.
there are several extreme examples from the past.
