YOU MAY ONLY HAVE UP TO 5 OR 6 PEOPLE IN YOUR TEAM FOR THE FIRST BATTLE. ONLY ONE VEHICLE TOO. MORE MAY BE USED PAR SAY MY REQUEST.
And yes, the battlefield is being made.
This is because the first game will have lots of factions. This, while is great, will lead to the fact of too many giant armies from the beginning. Most of the armies will die off, but if you don't you will get a a bigger faction the next game.
Note: You do not have to win to go to the next round, just have troops left. Playing aorak/pussy you can to live towards the next round.
I'm already within the infantry limit, so I'll just use my infantry and shuttle for the first game.
