Military Budget Increase v Actual Increase

Why are we forced to pump huge amount into armed forces to see them increase only nominally? For instance my last state I believe I pumped a trillion ruble into the defense budget but it hardly gave over 1m men. This is an unfair reflection and a disadvantage for many states against larger potential invaders.

RE: Military Budget Increase v Actual Increase

Alexei and Thanos:

I could be mistaken, but I believe that increases in military spending have different effects based on your state template. For example, it costs much more for great powers (superpowers, industrial powers, and resource powers) to build-up large armies than it does for smaller nations.

Best wishes,

-Jay

This chart defeats that theory as Vneshtorgbank was an emerging power and almost a trillion at one point and failed at just under a trillion just to support LESS than 1 million men?

RE: Military Budget Increase v Actual Increase

My general feelings about this game is simple, the admins do not want war. They have serious limits on anything war-related. As commander in chief I should be able to mobilize my military when I so please. I understand that they want to discourage war, but it is literally one third of the ways you can interact with other players. I shouldn't have to pay action points to defend other states, and I shouldn't need them to attack either, I understand the nukes because they are so devastating.

And also, the tasks that are war related make no sense. I have had the conscription task before with an Indian template, where the population is near 1 billion. I decide to mandate conscription to the armed forces for people basically coming out of high school, and my numbers barely increase, just remove the task, because it is BS!!

But I know others have made suggestions before and there was no movement, so no use complaining, my apologies Smile.
