i can understand wanting to free up pop, we do it in my alliance to help each other out.This is my first post... i have some questions about this modest war...
1) is premium alowed in this war? Cause if one has infinite premium and one has none...well... it's not about the person with more skill but about the person with more money.
2) why do you use transport ships???? There is something called FAST TRANSPORT SHIP.
3) does someone else in this game attack with transport ships and with NO navy support???
as for premium, there is no 'unlimited' since that is limited by the amount you spend. most of the players, top or otherwise will use this feature. you can't help it. the game still boils down to pure understanding of the mechanics and strategy. fast transports are good, but in certain circumstances...you need to figure that out.
as for support, see the first response about freeing pop
