10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2000: [Near-East]:Does anyone else have a different color than the territories the game is telling them to control? Either the game is crazy or i am....either is highly plausible
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2000: [China]:Quebec appears as green on the map but off yellow in the chat bar. Near East on the map is a much lighter shade of purple than its color on the chat bar.
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2000: [Near-East]:Weird
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2000: [Near-East]:Anyone know if "standard dip rules" means we can build on any SC or just original 3?
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2000: [China]:Yes, builds in starting SCs only, New players - ask if this doesn't make sense.
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2000: [Frozen-Antarctica]:For me the entire Middle East (or Near East?) is colored the same as the oceans.
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2000: [Near-East]:Yeah its the same on my screen. Very confusing.
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2000: [Near-East]:I'm actually playing as the pirate nation
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2000: [Frozen-Antarctica]:The Yarr-East?
10 Sep 15 UTC Spring, 2000: [Near-East]:Haha...i like you
12 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Frozen-Antarctica]:The Ross Ice Shelf territory, is that sea or land? I have it colored both ways in my screen.
12 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: [China]:Beneath Argentina it's an ocean square; underneath LEN it's land, but that patch of water just to the east of it is connected to the water square beneath Argentina. Make sense?
12 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: [China]:Be sure to check your FB Group page - I have posted some tips, notes, and other useful general information.

Be sure you understand how to actually take (and get credit for) taking Supply Centers (SCs).

Be sure you understand how retreats work.

Finally, ask if support-move and support-hold are not clear to you: both will soon become critical.

Nations with large fleets - be sure you understand how to properly convoy a unit - convoys can be built with your allies' fleets too, meaning a unit can be convoyed in one phase half-way around the world.
12 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Frozen-Antarctica]:OK... But it's still just one territory then? And does that mean that land units from MLB can move to RIS directly ordo they need to go through the South Pole?
12 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: [China]:MBL is adjacent to RIS, so no, armies can cross from one side to the other without needing the South Pole.

Just so all new players are aware, it's not uncommon to refer to territories using three letters, all in CAPS. So, Texas would TEX, Western Australia would be WAU.

Here is a link to the specific info about this particular map:

12 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Europe]:Just want to make a statement for historical purposes - Europe is not responsible for this world war!

Europe will bring order back to the world - I have so many juicy governments to choose from I am not sure if it will be benevolent or malevolent rule. Be sure it will be best for everyone else and we can handle governing the World.
12 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Historically, wasn't Europe mostly responsible for the way the current political and economical status quo of the world thanks to centuries of exploration and imperialism?

Also, didn't the last world war start when Poland was invaded from Germany?
13 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Ghana]:I blame Antarctica for starting this Conflict. Clearly it all started when suddenly a nation of aliens showed up where no one lives, throwing the world into panic.
13 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Nothing here but us penguins.
13 Sep 15 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Near-East]:Yarrrr
