Thomasj_tx Posted June 27, 2010 Report Share Posted June 27, 2010 The Strategic Defense Initiative claims to reduce the odds of a successful nuclear attack against your nation by 60%. That may be true, but the problem is that there is no "harm" to the nation that launched an unsuccessful attack. They do not lose the nuke. A nation can just relaunch over and over again, within seconds, until they finally get a successful outcome. There is absolutely no deterrent effect with the SDI. Last round I bought the SDI (admittedly a stupid move in retorspect) and twice had attacks where the first 5 attempts were unsuccessful but the 6th one was a success. And the 6 attacks came from a nation with only 3 nukes and the time between the first launch and the last was about 2 minutes. If someone launches a nuke against a nation, successful or not, they should first lose the nuke and second not be allowed to launch again until the next day. As it now stands, the SDI is one of the most expensive Wonders and requires 6 other Improvement slots yet it is totally ineffective. Your thoughts?
