If a build fails it is like a waived build, you are a unit short for the next year but unless you lose an SC the following year you can build it the following year.

Right, but does it waste the one per country? So if I build in Russia, but it fails for some reason, does that mean I can no longer build in Russia?

Ice is still green

also France/Germany (location wise) is at a disadvantage since there are only 2 "non SC" locations in the normal russian/turkish lands, - and China has taken one of these anyway.

No, its like a waived build...you would still be able to build in Russia the following year. Its treated as a "no build"

Actually that would be an advantage...since less people can build in their "homeland"...but its a minor advantage at that.

Sorry if this is a silly question, but we still have to have SCs to earn the neutral build, right? It's like we can build in the neutral space as an alternative to building in a home SC? It's not like now as Poland, I have a million builds this winter, even though I have few/no SCs under my control?

Agreed...its just a different place to build in case you don't have home SCs to build your "million builds" all at once.

It'd be nice if you ever threw a bone to minor countries. Spain is in serious decline because it could never get out of that stupid 1 build/year limit. :lol:

Well I can't change now because they are already written...but I understand your frustration. Keep in mind Spain wasn't even your minor :)
