that could be done but most people dont want their speed games to be drawn out so long. i really dont play speed games often because i rarely have time

the main problem with the suggestion is the time it needs for each game

most of my friends would expect a speed game to start and end within a half hour but some maps would require a half hour sometimes just to start and then theres people who dont have the best connections and all that

yeah, i see the complications with it now But i'm sure there is some way to make it happen and not make it time-consuming. Would be cool in my opinion.

I believe the better suggestions were that the first turn of each game you had X in hand - and you deployed them all to wherever you wanted - only seeing a sea of 1's on eveyone else's territories - once everyone had chosen their territories then the game begins...

I believe also that an extra DB rule was added - i.e. if you missed your deploy turn - you were booted from the game and 1 player was removed... I can't remember how this was to work for team games tho!

This could work if you have everyone an hour to take pick a territory then it goes to a 24 hour game after that.

Speed games only would work very well too.

Suggestion: Allow Players to Pick Territories at Start

Postby befera on Wed Dec 19, 2007 9:20 pm

I'm sure you've received this one before. It would be fun to create the option to allow players to select their territories to drop their armies at the beginning of a game. It could pose time issues and problems. Perhaps initially available only in speed games with 2 minutes or less to place armies or they'll be dropped for you. In casual games, maybe 6 or 12 hours to drop.

Select Territorys

Postby Unit_2 on Thu Dec 20, 2007 9:07 pm

I think since Risk has it in there games CC should have it too, i think a Territory select would be cool and fun.

Suggestion Idea: Territory select

Specifics: Only in a select game mode "Territory Grab"

Why it is needed: It is needed because Risk has it and CC is based on risk.. right? So why not have it as a option, it should make it more fun.

RISK IS NOT CC! Remember that put it on a pillow, never say they are the same again. This idea has been rejected at least 99903457943827605492376027 times, stop suggesting it.

Nope, all starting placements are completely random.

It would be too difficult. Everyone would have to pick their territories which could take days. Slow down the start of the game

Option for sequential picking of territories?

Postby Statalyzer on Thu Mar 13, 2008 5:24 pm

How about an option to, instead of randomly assigning territories, have people pick them in order as in the board game.

The problem with the board game was it was an advantage to place first, so how about a placement order that snakes back-and-forth, Catan-style? Ie a 4-player game would go 1234432112344321...

The current random system is okay, but sometimes one player gets in a better position than another before making a single meaningful choice, so why not have the option to go random or select for yourself?

the only problrm i can see other then abuse is that it would take for ever to actually start the game, if one of the players can only get to a computer once a day you are looking at (Terr nums/ num of player) days befor the game actually starts.
So im gonan go with a NO!

i'm pretty sure this has been suggested a bunch of times. the answer is that it would take forever for the game to start.

You could make it an option for only speed games, and give 30 seconds to place, or something like that.
