Colour escalating spoils

Postby Eddygp on Mon Apr 08, 2013 9:05 am

Concise description:
  • Make a new game option where the spoils are escalating (4,6,8,10...) each change but by colours too.

Specifics/Details:
  • Red, green, blue and one of each groups of spoils start as 4 each one. When player X cashes in 3 reds, red will be worth 6 troops, but the rest will continue being worth 4 troops. Therefore, it is like independently taken escalating spoils.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • This spoil setting is very useful to use in long games instead of escalating spoils. Firstly, escalating spoils in an 80+ round game get a bit too over the top and they are too influential for gameplay. Flat rate, however, makes gameplay too slow, so this in-between spoil system would be perfect to balance a game up to more than 200 rounds without the importance of spoils in escalating once it is worth more than 70 troops.

I like it.

However I disagree that Escalating Spoils get over the top.

I'm against it. It would kill my strategy of exchanging at the right time thus killing momentum at escalating games.

Exactly what happens at WAR, a game based on Risk and this setting and another peculiarities made the game suck.

It would be another different spoil setting, it wouldn't delete the possibility to play with flat rate, escalating, nuclear or no spoils.

I used to accept that argument, but lately I do not. I don't think unlimited options is a good.

For this particular suggestion, I'm not sure that it's different enough from escalating spoils to really warrant a new type of spoils.

I suppose so... However, I find escalating games too fast, too dependent on luck (three matching spoils) and timing (if freestyle). This mode would let strategy be more important but with interesting spoils too.

i too use to come here supporting and encouraging anything different but times have changed. i've wised up.

only the best options should be implemented and this is not one of them. it only serves to fragment the playing population and does not change gameplay much from what we already have.
