Tactical Assessment

Contents

[edit] What is Tactical Assessment?

All nations regularly carry out polls on the military policy of the day. The information gathered is used to discern various points of contention among military leaders and strategists, such as geographic locations for spearheading offensives, battle tactics for engaging specific enemies, etc. The results of these assessments are tallied on a weekly basis, with the prevalent opinions and views being implemented in the following week's military planning for campaign battles and Campaign Ops.

[edit] How does Tactical Assessment work?

Each week, players can speak with an NPC for a survey on their views of military policy. On Sunday at midnight Japan, these will be tallied and incorporated for the following week's policies. Players with greater medals will have higher influence.

There are three categories: leaders, battle strategies, and internal policies.

  • Leaders: Players are given a choice of commanding leaders for their nation, and may choose to recommend one. Each commanding leader has a strength to match a battle strategy. This may result in a more efficient campaign battle strategy.
  • Battle strategies: Players can recommend what military tactics for their nation to pursue. Chosen tactics will determine what Campaign Ops will be available.
  • Internal policies: Players can recommend a goal for their nation's internal policies to focus. Said policies will also affect Campaign Ops given out.
