I'm so curious about a few things - does the cost to attack go up proportional to the number of troops you're attacking? Are there territories at the North and South poles, and are they triangular? If I got on a Virgin America flight with free wifi and turned the game on, what would happen! Just a few things that crossed my mind while playing.
Glad to hear you are enjoying the game. To answer your questions:
-The cost of attacks is not proportional, although the damage is proportional by percent, except for kamikaze.
-There are territories in every square in of the world, including the poles. If you use the map at ownthisworld.com, you can type in coordinates in the lookup, like 90, 90 and you will see territories with a vary narrow width but long length, where as at the equator they are more wide than long. If you were at the equator you could basically just slightly move your phone to get in a new territory! They are not triangular though because the map is ?cartesian? I think. Basically mapped out to be a giant rectangle, like google or yahoo.
-If you were on a flight using wifi, it should track your movement fine, keeping in mind that it would probably skip territories because of the speed. It basically awards you a troop for whatever territory you are in each 30 seconds. If GPS was not available but wifi was, the iPhone will then do a lookup on your wifi to guestimate your location.
