dageraad Posted June 9, 2009 Report Share Posted June 9, 2009 Why are some nations more succesfull than others? First, lets define “success”. Most important resource to define succes is to make it to RTG “Survivors”- list. As of game #77 the score is : This way of measuring the succes of a nation is not without drawbacks. It does not measure why a certain nation is dropped, which nations were dropped in which turn of the game ande which nations were never started to begin with. But it is a measure of success. And Baltic states and Syria are 3x as succesfull as France. Why? First, lets look at the position of the nations. One would guess that nations at the outside would be more succesfull als countries near the center, as the center has far more competition. ` : The map above presents a measure of competition for each nation. The numbers are composed of # Neighbors over land + #(Neighbors of neighbors over land)/2 +1 if bordering on sea +1 if port Periferal nations on the eastern edge of the map tend to be more succesfull. But not on the southern, northern and western edge. Lets look to the economy: No pattern here. Northern Russia has a strong economy and is succesfull. But So has France, and it is not. Both Baltic states and Syria have a weak economy, but they are succesfull. Maybe there is no pattern. But I still have the nagging feeling that France is a real challenge, Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
