I guess i'm not alone, but since i play this game i hate Greenland ! If i could, i would nuke every damn rock in this country.
Can somebody explain me how a country with 50k people inside can save the world ?
And how the hell a fully infected Russia can send non-infected ships to Greenland ? Are they Skynet-controlled ships ?

I really enjoy this game, but Greenland is terrible. I mean, yeah the world could maybe be saved by the North Pole population, which is full of scientists and is a very isolated country, but not by Greenland.

So if someone could do something with this (or maybe add a funny option "nuke every damn rock in Greenland" for the neurax worm to avenge my poor Fungus)

Ha - the reason it is so hard to infect is a mix of the cold, being an island, and low population density. Hopefully these 3 things can help you figure out the best way to infect it.

RE: I Hate Greenland
Greenland and Iceland are two of my most hated countries. Through playthroughs, I happened to notice their are no transmission traits that give an advantage in cold climates. Urban, Hot, Humid, Dry, Rural, Cold you name it, but not cold (or rich for that matter). Any ideas on what transmission traits could have that effect to level the playing field?

1. Drug immunity
2. Cold immunity
3. Air|Water Combo spreading
4. Some symptoms to reach infectivity >50%.

Issue solved. The best shot is keeping all the spreading special traits for the midgame and when got all these New Zealand, Madagascar and Greenland in the shortest time.


Greenland isn't wealthy, so you don't need the Drug Immunity. Cold immunity is nice, but not needed depending on where you start. If you begin in a cold country, you only need T1 Cold Resist (T2 Cold only coming from a hot country at the start). Air is not needed either for Greenland though it should be your first transmission, depending on your starting location, in order to spread faster. Greenland only needs T2 Water spreading. Infectivity also isn't a needed stat for Greenland, but it can be helpful in making Russia send infected ships (in THEORY at least, for a "highly-realistic world simulator" there are a TON of illogical choices and issues that just directly ignore the real world).

I start in Saudi Arabia for everything as an FYI. Currently just need to beat Bio-Wep and Bacteria on Mega-Brutal and I'll be done with the game after just a few hours of playing.

Oh! Do me a favour and be sick first?

Personally, I have ship transmissions almost permanently in my genes...atop of that I usually pay close attention to the infected countries chart to see which islands I'm missing, patients is key (hehe punny)

RE: I Hate Greenland
Greenland isn't the real problem, the problem is that MOTHER RUSSIA is able to send clean ships while it's fully infected.

RE: I Hate Greenland
I think someone pointed out that fungus doesn't vehicle travel easily...so your problem got solved....I suggested the boat travel gene, boosts ship infectivity...

Mine is with a unlimited plague the world DIES before it infects Greenland...choosing a good start place can be important, But it never affects Greenland....that or Madagascar....

Hell, I started there once and Greenland died before it infected anything....that was embarrassing....

RE: I Hate Greenland
I like starting in Greenland for a challenge, so long as I evolve Water 1 right away to spread. Though, I've found infecting most of Africa gets tricky starting in Greenland (Madagascar to be specific). Not starting from Greenland? I find having to go full Cold resistance is my only option to full infect.
