well that could be part of the game.... he could choose to omit the -o.... or someone else could use it to make people "think" they're owens... though i dunno why you would ever wanna do that. you could even have multiple people claiming to be the same person, which would bring up one of those cartoon-like situations where you have to shoot someone and you don't know which one is the imposter. this is already done in regular fow games, where a player can call out another's position to others... of course, he might be lying... or he might not, you never know.

Fog of Player.

Postby Mr_Adams on Fri May 01, 2009 9:50 pm

Now, I thought this had been suggested, but I couldn't find it.

No player names during singles games(optional) especialy terminator
    Players should show up as :
      ???
      ???
      ???
      ect.


This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Will eliminate the targeting of high ranked players in terminator games. could be turned off for high ranks who think it will provide more of a chalenge
  • Only reasonably applicable if a system is set up to tell you before you accidently join the game of a foe.

This was also suggested in some form by dugcarr a billion years ago. Terrific idea, I can't see why it at least wasn't left to molder on the to-do list.

Fun idea, I would play that.

Only potential issue I see-What about people on shared computers? Might you accidentally join a game with a roommate or family member and then be accused of being a multi?

"Blindfold" Option

Postby Funkyterrance on Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:00 am

Game is joined, starts and is played anonymously. The only time you find out who you were playing against is after the game is over

Specifics/Details:

-Players would be listed as Player1, Player2, Player3, etc., respective to when they joined.
-There would be no way to tell which player was which until the game was completely over.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:

Would be a fun way to play a game with a group of players and no one would know rank/identity so there would be no prejudice during the game against higher ranked players, people you don't like, new recruits, friends etc..
I feel this would add an extra element to games in that you could not assume anything about any of the other players since it would be completely anonymous. I'm sure there are holes in this idea since I haven't tried to find any and just thought of it but I feel it is at least worth investigating?
