So your new to the game and you want to be able yo win your first game no problem well In AOC2 theres a couple of things you can do which I will tell you about and how too. So your on a scenario and have chose your nation DONT START THE GAME YET or this will not work. Choose your nation then look in the bottom left corner and click options/settings This only works on the paid version btw. Next there will be alot of options, first turn fog of war off, this allows you to see the amount of troops everyone has which is very helpful. Next turn AI aggressiveness too 50% this makes it so the AI will only invade you if they really need too and wont declare war on you unless you invade there ally's. Next change it from hard to beginner, all of these opions are next to each other. Now to turn on sanbox mode scroll down through the options, you will see some red highlighted buttons that have words inside of them, keep all of them red apart from: sandbox, wasteland colonisations and Neutral war. This should make the game very very very easy and should help the new people starting out, this is how i became good at the game after 2 days so you should really try it.
