the map is designed to make sure that it's very difficult (though not impossible) to win if u've been forced off the track.

Yep if your forced off the track it is possible to get back in the game. Especially in an escalating game but is certainly is difficult.

Pit row?

Well by that time toe opponent gets 40 troops then you're screwed.


Then get better and don't get kicked off the track..

Do you always have a spurious post for everything? Geez... Lol.

I loved the loop.

I disliked trying to figure out how the territories were linked together. How do you get 'into' another car?

Can only get into your own car from your pit crew... once you lose the crew you cant get attack any car ... the pit equipment is one way to bombard other cars.

Ok, maybe I am a total n00b, but can someone explain to the the general concept of this game and how it is won? It makes no sense to me at all.

Das Schloss took a while, not sure exactly how long though.

Research and Conquer (in the main foundry at the moment) has been around for nearly 6 years now.

Although very unlikely, I found out that there is a way to have a stalemate on this map if there is no round limit in a game.

Player x capture a pit stop item, player y capture a different pit stop item. Player x bombard player y's crew, then player y bombard player x's crew. The pit stop items can no longer be reached by any mean and so they cannot be eliminated from the game.

The map needs an objective to prevent this from happening. I suggest controlling the entire road, every positions on every segments.

That eventuality is impossible.

There is always someone on the tracks on some segments. From the segments you can always take the Winner's Circle and bombard everything.
Plus the pit item can attack the pit row, and therefore go back on the road again, from the road they can then attack the winner's circle.

No stalemate.

Winner's circle doesn't only bombard the crew, it bombards everythings ( except the regions on the road).
