I would like to have an option where i can set the game so that nobody
can attack in the first 2 turns, this gives the both sides a chance to develop before the first attack.

as in chess you cannot attack in the first 2 moves only develop.

It's entirely possible for white to take a piece on their second move.

Code:
1. Nc3          d5
2. NxP

Since MA is all about balance, and balance is calculated before guerillas are generated, it should be pretty easy to get 300% in three turns, combined with a little opponent stupidity :)

Actually, it all depends on whether you count deployment as a turn too :)

Here's proof that you can win in three turns, even as FNU on Crateus.

Artanis, if you did not get immediate victory with 326% he would return balance to about 100% next turn.

That replay was in reply to Enforcer and Quitch, showing that a 3-turn victory is possible in MAN.

I've recently found that hitting 300% is possible in two turns, but the game is hard-coded not to give the win at that point.

Yes it is, no victory in the first two turns. I know because I was once able to get 337% on the <i>first</i> turn. The opponent was PL and invaded like 4 or 5 countries with one unit a piece. I could not stop laughing while I took my turn.

:o

If I can even find it. I'm not sure I made a replay. Of course, it would be no problem to get one if the devs hadn't made it so old games get deleted when you do a profile restore.
