there should definately be a time limit on fortification. it is not a valid tactic and it only wastes veryones time.

You can negotiate mid turn in offline risk games, so I don't see why you shouldn't be allowed do it here. Limit it for double turn games if you want, but not for all.

the reason why it is a pric move is the whole game grinds to halt while you wait for an answer. in offline games this can be handled in a quick conversation but online its not possible

Ans that strategy only shows how much you're not able to adapt your tactic. For a good RISK player, you should be able to anticipate the moves of your opponent and move accordingly in the same time frame.
I think people should have a maximum of 25 minutes per turn ( from the time they push "Begin turn" to the time they press "End fortifictaions"). If you want to make alliances, do it after/before your turn and don't let people wait to see how your gonna move your troops to defend the country they are attaking while they are playing...that's not really in the optic of the original board game...

I agree 100 percent with all this, I'm in a game doubles game right now with two people who wait until 5 minutes before the end of their turns to finish and its making the game drag out forever.....

Fortifications should be time limited

Fortifications should be time limited because 1) people keep on changing their fortifications as they watch your move 2) people keep on forgetting to click end fortification.

someone proposed once upon a time that a turn should be limited to 15 minutes, this is obviously too short, but 15 minutes to do all fortifications should be more than enough

max time for fortifications

Postby ADAM TJ on Sat Feb 18, 2006 10:03 pm

there is a major issue with people letting the game sit at the end fortification stage... i think it shouldt take more the 20 min to move a man into and out of every country on the map....just for those ppl that are unsure about themselves.....

but seriously, a time limit would be good, im in 2 games right now that are being held up by a moron who forgot to press and end their turn
