Ruined Conquest

Thanks SDS. You took a mode that was already a grind, and made it even more so.

SDS

What you talking about Willis.

Yeah, you're going to have to elaborate. I have no Idea what you are talking about and I probably played more conquest than anything else.

Nicely done, this ended me.

SDS

Hes probably talking about the simulation part of it, they made it a complete joke and waste of time this year......losing a sim when your fan base is 3x the computer is a joke

That was an issue last year too.

Conquest is slow and can be stupid, but it hasn’t changed at all. I do wish summing wild go faster.

People complained about that last year too.

I am still on pace to finish the full US conquest map in 30 turns or less which is about the same rounds that I have always finished it in so they could not have made it that much worse.

SDS

I just finished the 1st inning map and it was definitely tougher than all of last year's maps. Used to breeze through these things, but the CPU is more aggressive and yes, the simulations can be frustrating.

Have to consider the strength of your team as well, the sims definitely feel a bit harder this year but I imagine come mid season when everyones line ups and rotations are stacked with high 80s and 90s they will breeze by.

There is not a chance conquest sims take your team overall into account.

SDS

Um Conquest is super easy. Just wait till extreme conquest now that was some serious work. If they have that mode this year you wont be able to sim anything as all your fans are important and losing some in a sim can be disasterous.

Yeah, I agree completely. It seems to be pretty RNG based.

Your team has zero effect on sim. It's a simple rng as to who loses fans done roughly once every half second until one of the teams reaches zero.

It's a bit more frustrating this year at times. I've won 10 in a row where no fans/points were lost on my side, but I've also lost a handful of 16-2 sims. Had a 26-3 sim I won 1-0. Best was an 86-14 sim I won 33-0. Good times. It's Conquest, so I ain't sweating it, but it's different at times as you can have a run of not losing any fans/points and a run of losing a massive amount in one sim. It's those you lose you tend to remember better.

SDS

The CPU seems to gain fans 5 times faster then then did last year. I don't even remember seeing CPU controlled spaces having 30 million plus fans. At least not nearly as many as there are now. IAnd the CPU is super aggressive this year. And as someone mentioned above, the simulations are horrible. I can have 3x the amount of fans and still lose.

Overall they just made it so much harder. Which would be fine! If it didn't take forever for this game to process a move.

SDS

I did the Nation map by taking over the middle and than headed to the nw and than back to the southeast and finally over to the ne.
Not sure if that was the easiest route, but that's how I got it done.

I have all the conquest maps finished was not that big of a problem sometimes just takes an extra turn
