I don't really like it that much... It can give people the wrong impression about timings when they should expand, and when to build production facilities if all they know is this mode where they get income depending on their allies, which is beyond their control.
If you are with a team where you actually play as a team, you can share resources manually if that's needed. And if you're playing with randoms you just might not want to.
I still hold to what I said to the ca guys. Ideally you would want the players to decide if someone is part of their communist cluster or not. After all such in-game alliances wouldn't necessarily be so hard to understand.
It's dubious though if communism is a better basis for resource distribution between a coordinating team than everybodys incomes being independent of each other. Probably the team'll perform better with the setting they are more familiar with.
What it would solve: - The likes of one player dominating the outcome of a team game and stripping the remaining players in the team of resources (ie/ Godde styles) - Flag stealing
What it would create: - New players won't particularly understand the concept of expansion right away (on the other hand it won't effect them as much either) - Wasting of resources if someone decides to TECH TO TIGER II - Hopefully a more coordinated team
Who should not have a say in this until they actually play s44 properly: - Johannes
Overall outcome of the system:
Well, for one the concept of expansion is learned, and therefore should not be considered as a downside. The playstyle is also learned so tech to tiger argument should also be negated. As it is, if there is a team of 3 equal individuals then resources are usually shared equally anyway - virtually communism.
Honestly it really only has benefits, and if theres one person letting the team down they will get a ear full from the others which means they should improve quicker as a result (or quit). The idea won't benefit me at all either, but I still think you'd get better games a result. The team should hopefully treat the entire flag command as a benefit to everyone so there should be better teamplay aswell.
