Ok from what you said i understand that the problem exists with the game and the players.
How would you guys suggest that those who lose their units early on not be demotivated. For me it's hard to get used to a new area. and that itself is demotivating. another thing i was thinking of is constantly attacking and keeping active what you already own.
Eh, I try to win every once and awhile. Gotta keep up appearances.
