There are a lot of players, at least on my planet (WG) who play this game for a few days and quit, and then their country sits there building up money and just being in my way (I'm surrounded by a few of them, and have to jump over them to attack anything). My suggestion is that after a certain while, without selecting some "I'm on vacation" option, they lose all war protection and level protection so a neighbor can clear them out of the way or put their money to good use instead of watching it sit there and grow.

Good idea :-)

It's too easy to abuse that. There are limits to easy wars against the computer for a reason. This goes live and all of a sudden "friends" will register and allow many countries to go "inactive" with a pile of newb cash. I am generally for more rewards for PvP but this encourages "fake" PvP.

A war against CPU is not cost effective. Even if I take 1 casualty for every 1,000 I cause, I still lose money. A war against an inactive with twice as much money WOULD be cost effective, and I'd actually gain something from fighting a war. At this point, especially surrounded by inactives, making it even LESS cost effective to use my military, I am thoroughly discouraged from participating in the most entertaining part of this game.

level up your war levels, earn some gold coins and for sure some cash at lower levels. Your at war level 2 and from what i perceive you havent been playing a long time. At war level 2 you can forsure make cash from a c3.
I would say yes inactives are annoying to see and should be faster removed but doesent need to be a only source of prey for some.
Learn to play the game more and stop complaining

I have only been playing for 2 months now. I just completed my 2nd war yesterday. I spent a total of $100B on weapons/ammo/supplies...and after raiding the C3, I will take away over $1T. Pretty profitable in my opinion. My casualty ratio is 1 per 1,636.
I didn't like the location of my starter country, so I attacked a C3 that is 4 countries away from mine. My plan is to leapfrog to a more desirable location, picking up coins and cash and population slaves along the way.

Tuesday, you appear to be new. You should ask how to profit from a war against the computer, rather than make a statement that is simply not true. Perhaps you should check the Beginner's Forum where, if you follow my guide carefully, you can indeed benefit greatly from a smart war against a computer country.

It's not possible to spend just $100B on weapons and ammo when it costs $100B for 1000 planes.

Papastorm was estimating the cost of the forces he spent/lost rather than the forces he started with. Tuesday, if you are looking for an easy game, this isn't it. If you are looking for a challenge and a game that you can build and grow with for years, there is no other game like it.

My apologies for for using the word spent. I can see now that I should have used lost, to reflect the cost of the weapons/ammo/supplies consumed during the war.
I followed Aries C3 War Guide, and spent a total of $3.3T to create the necessary units. By the end of the war, I had only lost 20 Precision Bombers, and the total cost of all weapons/ammo/supplies lost was $100B.
I am also following another Aries Guide, "The Path of a Warrior". If I am correct, my initial investment of $3.3T will be enough to win most, if not all, of the 18 wars that will get me to Level 4. The cumulative loot is $39T, and 260 coins.
I then travel to FB, setup another empire, and apparently get nuked into oblivion...Game Over.

I am not a premium member, so I do not get coins.

I apologize for my bad assumption. It took me 5 days to decide to become a premium member, due to the fun and challenges that this game has to offer. The return on my investment has been well worth it.
