luke - there are differences. For example, in CtW, you can taken an enemy capital city and if you hold it long enough, you win without having to defeat your opponent. Hpwever, in my idea, cities still exist and give bonus' for being taken, but you only win that senario when you completely defeat your opponent.
vostok - what do you think of it? There are actually a fewfeatures about RoN that really peeve me, which i have obviously not included in my idea. These are attrition (although national borders still exist) and the final four techs in the Information age. I dont know about you, but i find they undo all of BHG's good work and make the game a click-fest at the end.
