Allow fortification of neutral territories

Postby CreepyUncleAndy on Sat Feb 17, 2007 10:38 pm

You can fortify friendly armies in team games; you should also be allowed to fortify neutral (grey) territories. Nothing like having a client buffer state or waging a war by proxy.

Hmmm, that's actually a decent idea. I don't think it would be used very often at all but it should be a possibility I think.

Eh, maybe. I guess it could be made an option.

That's an interesting idea. However, it would suck if you mistook a neutral territory name with one of your own. (like iReland and iCeland).

I don't see much point to it, as an option. Maybe if available during normal gameplay, but as an option, NO.

Solution would be to attack it (it only has 3 armies anyway, unless the remains of a deadbeat) and use it not only to gain the continent bonus but so that you can fortify it as much as you would like.

I agree with Andy on this point, neutral fortications would seem unnecessary as an option, it would just cause an annoyance to have to have that displayed on the join game page.

I also think that it shouldnt be implemented as regular gameplay, as this would just cause complete confusion and also cause a bunch of newbs to start posting in the bug reports forum about this.

People get confused and accidentally deploy troops to territories owned by team-mates anyways. You just have to be careful what you click on (and, remember, the "do-it" button is totally separate from the selection menus). At least with neutral territories, you don't have to worry about being attacked by them.

Oh, and as a corollary, perhaps neutral territories could receive +2 bonus armies if they are listed on cards you trade in, just like your own territories (I kinda brought something like that up earlier).

So, please implement this idea, not as an option, but as a standard game feature.
