Read it and talk about it.

Who is the most resourceful of them all?



Introduction

As you might know, we asked your opinions about shuffling the resources on the Forum in December. As some of you noted, a random shuffle of the resources could end up so that some countries get a significant advantage over others purely out of good luck. We believe that good luck has to be earned!

In Resource Wars event countries will have a chance to win resources for their historical (core) regions. The resources of the New World will be re-distributed based on the country's military performance and diplomatic efforts during the event.

Each country will be able to select and prioritize resources they want for each of the country’s historical (core) regions. The responsibility of the selection will fall on the shoulders of the President.

Selection itself is not enough, as the country also has to win the resource. There is a limited amount of resources available (the list can be found at the bottom of this post), so careful planning and good strategic decisions are required if you are to succeed in the future.


Resource selection

Starting now, and during the Resource Wars event, countries will be able to choose the resources they’d like to have on their historical (core) regions (with the exception of the historical capital region). The President will arrange the resources in the order of importance, so the one they want the most comes first et cetera. The selection will be done by the President on a special page under the My Country menu. The page can be viewed by everyone. While the President is technically fully in charge of the selection, it’s obviously recommended to discuss and plan the selection carefully with the government, Congress and allies of the country.

All the historical capitals of all countries will have a food resource which cannot be changed. The resource for all historical capitals will be Fish, as it’s the most common resource of the New World.

All the historical (core) regions are listed on the selection page, and have a default selection based on the rarity of the resource. The President will be able to change the selection at any point during the event. Resources which were already won with Resource Tokens during the event cannot be changed afterwards.

When the country gets its first Resource Token (read more about how below), it will be assigned to the first region picked by the President. The first resource picked by the President on the list will be selected, assuming it’s still available. If the resource is no longer available (all of them were taken by other countries already), the second resource on the list will be picked and so on.

President’s view of the selection screen. On this example, 2 Resource Tokens were used by Portugal on Azores and Algarve. The next region on the list is Lisboa and the first priority as a resource is set to be Grain.
 
 
How can a country gain resources?

In short, there are 3 ways to gain resources:
1. Country wins a Resource Token from a campaign and it’s used for a region according to the list made by the President
2. Country receives a Resource Token as a donation from another country which already had new resources on all of their regions
3. Country spends Event Points to bid for a Resource Token in a Bidding Phase at the end of Resource Wars

The final way to get resources is after the event ends, during the Bidding Phase. When all the Resource Tokens and Event Points have been spent, the remaining resources will be distributed to the remaining regions. The country with the lowest amount of Country Power will get the first picks, and this will be continued until every region has a resource.

The amount of regions and resources is unchanged, so no region will be left without a resource.


Resource Tokens

Resource Tokens are used to obtain a resource to one of the historical (core) regions of the country. When a country gains a Resource Token, it’s automatically used on the first prioritized region in the list made by the President. If resources have already been assigned to all the regions of the country, the President has the possibility to donate a Resource Token to another country.

Resource Tokens are gained by winning a campaign in a direct fight between 2 countries. Defending a Resistance War won’t give either of the countries Resource Tokens, but liberating a region in a Resistance War does give one for the country which liberated a region. Airstrikes are counted as normal campaigns so the winner will get a Resource Token.

Examples:
1. France liberates a region from Serbian occupation in a Resistance War. France gets 1 Resource Token.
2. France fails to liberate a region from Serbian occupation in a Resistance War. Neither side gets Resource Tokens.
3. Bulgaria attacks a Hungarian region and loses the campaign 80-96. Hungary gets a Resource Token, as they won the campaign.

Resource Tokens are used automatically the moment one is received. They are used according to the list prepared by the President. The only exception to this is when the country already has all resources for all regions. In this case, the Resource Tokens are kept and can later be donated to another country by the President. When a Resource Token is donated to another country, it will automatically be spent according to the priorities set by the President of the receiving country.


Event Points

Event Points are received when a side loses a campaign in a direct battle between two countries, or successfully defends a Resistance War. 1 Campaign Point equals 1 Event Point. A campaign ends when one side reaches 94 Campaign Points.

Event Points can be spent at the end of the event (see schedule below) to bid for Resource Tokens in the Bidding Phase.

Event Points cannot be transferred to another country.


Bidding Phase

The Bidding Phase happens at the end of the main event, so more information will follow later. Here’s the basic idea explained:

At the end of the event, countries which didn’t get enough Resource Tokens to secure their selections for the historical (core) regions can spend Event Points to bid for resources on specific regions. If two countries bid the same amount of Event Points on their regions, the order will be determined by the Country Power. The country with less Country Power will have a priority.

The bidding is done for regions, not for a specific resource. For example, USA can bid 50 EP on Alaska, 25 EP on Texas and 25 EP on South Carolina. If a smaller country with less Country Power also bids 25 EP on some regions, they will receive a resource according to their list before USA.

Questions & Answers

Q: All the core regions of my country are currently occupied. Does my President still get to choose the resources for these regions?
A: Yes! All the resources for the regions are picked by the original owner country’s President, no matter who currently has control over the regions.

Q: If a President doesn’t select any resources for any regions, what will happen?
A: In this case, the default selection will apply.

Q: My country has all the resources already, and it has some extra Resource Tokens. However, we’re feeling selfish and we don’t want to help anyone. Are we forced to donate them?
A: No, the country is not forced to donate Resource Tokens.
