Not entirely true. There are those of us that were moved to the bottom of the world...literally...and have very few trading partners that we can reach. Especially with the new snafu'd battle design. Can't scout any more provinces to reach those people way up there out of my reach, because I am trying to catch up to my tech tree. If I DO stick my middle finger out at INNO and scout anyway, I am basically cutting off my nose to spite my face. Though I don't have the best nose in the world, I am kind of partial to having a nose, so, I can't scout to active, trading players. So here I sit, at the bottom of the world, waiting for something good to happen. And yes, I have an active FS, but apparently WE ALL HAVE THE SAME BOOSTS. Sigh.On the bright side since they started player movement everyone can have active neighbors to trade with.
PS, Welcome to the game, Draugen. Ignore the rude Kat, most of us are pretty nice.
