I like it. It's kinky, but I can deal with some bondage.

This was an idea that had some merit a long time ago:

viewtopic.php?f=471&t=116801
viewtopic.php?f=471&t=83813

It never really had whole hearted support, so it didn't get off the ground. If people are more interested in it now, we can re-examine it.

I think this would be a good option.

This thread that Mets linked to is awesome. There's some great smart-ass commentary and some people actually played a test game to see how it would work out. At some point, these identical suggestions should probably get merged together (and I'm sure there are more like them out there). There is some good stuff in these old threads.

Also, in the two threads linked to, I can't really find any reason for this being rejected. So maybe we should keep this one in the active suggestions forum and try to pull these threads together (especially given what the OP here looks like).

Go for it. I'm normally opposed to minor variants on existing gameplay, if the only real reason for doing it is just so that players have more options, but I think that no reinforcements is a different enough style of gameplay to warrant serious consideration.

Ok, I withdraw my support after thinking about it.

Consider a few ridiculous scenarios:

I attack a territory and I can advance troops, but if I advance 0 and end attacks, then I can't immediately place those troops there. This seems like a ridiculous and arbitrary choice. The same can be said about trench though (if you advance to a new terrritory you cant attack the same territory that you would have been able to attack) which is a setting I like, but in that case, the strategy element of it makes sense.

I start with territories in the middle of the dust bowl. Normally, I can save 1 troop. This way, I can save 0 troops.

1v1 becomes a total dice slog.

First, move your troops correctly, that's your fault, not the settings' fault.

Second, not every setting is for every map. And, with Dust Bowl's new XML, that wouldn't matter anyway, because both players would be in the same boat.

I'm anti this suggestion and I'll tell you why: I think there are already too many "obscure" settings.

This would be an unsettling setting for a new player and games started like this might drive away newcomers. I also think this might turn into another setting that high ranks would just use for a while to gain points until people got used to it and then it would probably be abandoned. I personally think it might be fun but for the sake of the greater good, maybe it should not be done. You could always play the "gentlemanly" version mentioned earlier and make a private game where everyone agrees not to fortify right?

Interesting option but should it not be called no fortifications?

The term used "officially" on the site is Reinforcements.

Yup read the tread from the start and don t understand what is unclear about a reinforcement for some of you. On the drop it s deployment or drop, not reinforcements!

Regarding this option, why not. It seemed unplayable on the first thought, but could be interesting. Any new setting makes you think of new strategies and solve new problems. I guess that with those rules a good strategy would be to reduce to 1s territories adjacent to your bonus/ the one you want to take and advance slowly and with patience. I think that with such rule there could be lots of turning points in a given game.

People who use the timing out to their benefit in games with spoils are no longer punished by not being able to fort.

This is the most relevant point to this not being implemened, as far as I can see.

I think before this is implemented (if it is), then the thread below also needs to be implemented to protect against the situation that The Voice is talking about.
