okay I am definitely in the group that feels they should not just disappear but rather be either deferred or disbursed randomly. I know they are totally different game engines but on pogo they have risk and they just randomly disburse if you for some reason you do not place them. just my 3 cents on it lol

I don't have a problem with that. I think it makes more sense with the other rules for troops. You never lose any troops unless you don't deploy when time runs out. Why should that happen if you get deferred troops for missing a turn? It is a little inconsistent.

Why not just defer any undeployed troops to the next round, like missing a turn?

her her! sucks arse when you try to make a turn the last seconds and then end up without any troops.. often it is because of lag/bads connection in cooperation with having a set to cash.. so a lot of missed troops in some speedgames.. deferred seems right in my book..

shouldnt even be a hard fix since the code should be in place allready just add another line of "if" and point to normal rules..

waiting until the last seconds of your turn to make your move is a common tactic in Speed.

if you then find you are unable to deploy your troops, that is your bad luck.

while I agree there are plenty of cheap tactics and tht may be one of them there is also a more significant problem of connectivity that cause delays and lost troops whether it is on the end of pc user, the isp or CC it results in game changers. Making the troops deferred or evenly disbursed makes It fair again. deadbeaters are given the benefit of the doubt and so should regular players.
