But if a player is attacked by someone else it is completely logical that the defender will receive a report saying that he was attacked, by whom, and how many casualties the attack caused. If you were watching at that present moment you would get that info, so this should be in the log.

I agree that this info is not needed once the game has finished. Would be nice to have it to study the game and so, but it's not vital.


Yeah, part of this part of the Game Log stuff is the premise that you shouldn't suffer a disadvantage just because you aren't constantly checking your turns constantly. I understand the "sneak attack" thing and I've done it myself. But just because you can do it in the current system doesn't mean that it's the best way of doing things.

The archived log could simply state that an attack was made. I imagine this would simply involve dropping certain columns from the data. An additional nice feature would allow the user to save a small number of the games in full on the site, or an unlimited number offline, with a tool to load and review them. Make some or all of that a premium perk.


This is more or less what I agree with. If I am playing a 4+ player game with fog, and decide to trim a stack without taking it, I don't want others to have access to that info since it could remove any advantage I was trying to gain by attacking without conquering.

You may have misunderstood my intended point. The detailed information would be available during the game and until it was archived, at which time it would be condensed. So, sorry, your sneakiness would be spelled out for all to see. And as OliverFA said, a keen observer could detect this anyway, either by watching while you play or comparing snapshots. Granted, in a fog game, only the victim and those within range could see your work -- the less involved would be oblivious now, but not with the detailed log -- except all they would see is that ?? attacked ?? and lost ?? troops.

Good to hear. So many great ideas could be realized with this as the basis.

It means that if the Features Panel, meaning 10 persons, agree, this suggestion will be implemented ?

Might we know what you are exactly discussing ?

For exmaple, from OP
Example of failed attack: spiesr assaulted Cuba from Mexico losing 5 troops and jonty125 defended losing 2


Giving this kind of information would change completely the gameplay.

In a fog game would it be :


1)Example of failed attack: spiesr assaulted ? from ? losing 5 troops and jonty125 defended losing 2

2)Example of failed attack: spiesr assaulted ? from ? losing ? troops and jonty125 defended losing ?

3)Example of failed attack: spiesr assaulted Cuba from Mexico losing ? troops and jonty125 defended losing ?

4)Example of failed attack: spiesr assaulted ? from ? losing ? troops and ? defended losing ?

Only the 4th would be imo acceptable. And still I wouldn't like it to be changed. Reducing a territory does not appear in the log and that's a good thing !

Sometimes you attack someone, but this someone doesn't know who attacked him, that is a nice part of the game play. In Fog game it has to be kept that way. In sunny game you might argue that since it's sunny it should be in the log, I don't like it but why not.


Hope feature panel consider all the implications of such a change.

Also, I do not think community is really asking for that change. It hasn't been asked so many times and if it hasn't been done in the first place it might have been for good reason.

100% against it ! Vote no !
