As Stu and I feared from looking at the German sides war record (ranked 147) they were good. Within 1 hour 30 mins all their players were on. It seems for us there were time lag issues over when planets were showing as taken which meant at times they retook when game notified we had just taken. Result some people attacked when we did not have planets.
Only chance now is Stu to hold out last uplink, and for US players to wait till Germans sleep and they can pound their bases after having taken back planets. Hopefully Val and Luko will read this post. And WRD2.
Please use comments to liaise with each other. Good luck!
