After the release of the last update about the Concessions a lot of questions have been asked. As we are getting closer to to the update going live, we wanted to answer the most frequently asked questions we have collected. You can find more details about the update and what’s changing here.
Clarifications about the new Determination rules.
Q: We will have same determination in RW's and direct battles? The determination will be assigned to a Region or a Country? Will it stay the same after Day 3929?
Country A occupies Region Z of Country B for 250 days.
Country B liberates the region with 6x Resistance War Determination (250/250 days of occupation).
Scenario 1: Country A attacks Region Z of Country B via MPP/direct battle immediately
Country B will have ~5.9x Defensive Battle Determination.
Scenario 2: Country B attacks Country A via MPP/direct battle
Country B will have zero Offensive Battle Determination.
Scenario 3: Region Z has been free for 8 days. Country A attacks Region Z.
Region Z will have ~4x Defensive Battle Determination.
Scenario 4: Region Z has been free for more than 20 days. Country A attacks Region Z.
Region Z will have zero Defensive Battle Determination.
Country A conquers Region Z.
Resistance War Determination is once again calculated based on the number of days Country A held that region over the last 250 days.
Determination will be lower than last time, but not by much, since only 20/250 days of freedom have been added.
Country B liberates the region with ~5.9x Resistance War Determination (230/250 days of occupation).
Region Z will once again have ~5.9x Defensive Battle Determination versus Country A when attacked via MPP/direct battle.
Scenario 5: Country C attacks Region Z.
(Country C did not occupy Region Z in the past 250+ days.)
Country C will face zero Defensive Battle Determination.
Country C will face zero Resistance War Determination (0/250 days of occupation).
Country B liberates Region Z.
Country A attacks Region Z.
Country A will face Defensive Battle Determination and if it conquers the region will face Resistance War Determination based on days of occupation.
Please note that in these examples we used three different terms for the sake of clarity:
Resistance War Determination, Defensive Battle Determination and Offensive Battle Determination. To illustrate the Defensive determination, it has been added to each region pages.
Questions & Answers
Q: When will the law for resource concessioning become available?
A: The Resource Concession Law is planned to roll out several days before new determination rules become active.
Q: Does determination go down only when region is free or does it go down for Occupier A if Occupier B holds the region?
A: Resistance War Determination will go down for Occupier A for every day it is not occupying the region, thus it will go down in both cases.
Q: Will I rent just one particular resource from a region or do I have to rent every resource in that specific region? Am I conceding by territory or by specific resource?
A: Territory is not conceded. Concession is done per region and per resource.
In order to rent all the resources in a region (let’s assume 3), 3 different concession laws will have to be passed.
Q: What about dictatorship? Will the determination slowly decay after a successful revolution or be instantly reset?
A: Dictatorship Determination is not affected by this update.
Q: What happens when the country renting a resource also occupies the territory that the resource belongs? Do they get 100% of the rented resource and 50% of the other resources on the territory or does everything go down to 50%, assuming no border.
A: You cannot concession resources to/from countries you are at war with, nor can you give into concession resources from conquered regions.
Q: Does Natural Enemy or an Active War affect the concession between the countries?
A: Yes, they do. You cannot have good Trading Relations with hostile countries.
Q: Will the concession with Country A be dropped after a Natural Enemy or Declare a War law has passed?
Q: What will happen when a country does not have enough funds to pay for the concession?
A: The concession will be dropped.
Q: Can concession law be proposed between countries with either: an active Trade Embargo, Natural Enemy or a War?
Q: How is GDP calculated?
A: Gross Domestic Product is calculated based on manufactured goods * average price. The GDP is country specific.
Q: What is the resource concession limit?
A: A country cannot take more than 3 resources in concession at any given time.
Q: Is the concession limit applied to the country which owns the region or the country which receives the concession?
A: The concession limit is applied to the receiving country. As an example, France can give in concession all of its food resources, but France will only be able to receive 3 resources from other countries.
Q: Can the Concession Fee be affected by any other circumstances?
A: Yes, the Concession Fee will be affected by Tribute to other countries (which occupy their core regions) AND Dictatorship Upkeep. Eg: If a country under dictatorship rents a resource for which it has a 100,000 daily fee, dictatorship upkeep will consume half of the amount destined for the treasury.
Later Edit / Notes by Dev.NUL:
Tribute refers to the Taxation Of Occupied Regions
Q: Country A attacks Country C in Region Z. Will Country A face determination?
A: Defensive Battle Determination will only apply to Country B, the original owner of the region.
