ties in endless games; 3 or more player stalemates

PLACE THE NAME OF THE SUGGESTION IN THE SUBJECT LINE!

i think it makes more sense to consider draws in games >150 rounds ONLY when 3 on more players are left....
i know we could have just started as 100 round limit but you don't always think about it....
game 1000001 comes to mind....
... when you start with 8, winnow to 3 and then get stalled for 100 moves its kinda boring... wouln't do it in a 2 person game

we could have just set the 100 round limit but didn't think of it when we joint the game


I know theres a potential for cheating, but less than with 2 person tie ( which i think is dumb) and there are probably faster ways to farm points sneakily than having to play 150 rounds....

They've brought up draws before and it was considered easy to be abused. Not going to happen.

I think the round limit is a good solution for this. I hate stalemates, and i really like the round limit option. Just keep it in mind when you create games and you will be fine.
I don´t see any draw option coming since there is no really need for it any more due to the round limit option.

He might be talking more about retroactively ending games before round limits, as he mentioned Game 1000001

thanks all I'm satisfied ,... just will look for round limits or small maps with escalating...
i'm mainly talking about multiplayer no fog games that wind up in stale mate... just finishing one at > 100 that i'll win because one of the 3 deadbeated ... much less satisfieying than maneuveing for a few troop advantage at round 100

I think the 100 round limit should be default for all games. Especially tournament and special event games.

When do you ever plan on having more than 100 rounds in a game? It's just silly, pointless, and frustrating.

change the default length to 50 or 100 would be a good idea ..rather then endless and we'd have to move it to endless... i guess the idea of endless is purist view of war and similar to similar board games we grew up with but even then , with all-nighters, we'd rarely continue a game in our home town when winter break ended and some of us returned to school
