This option will definitely make it easier to play team games...

the only thing about it, and it isnt necessarily negative, is it takes away the need for teammates to communicate at all.... telling your partner your cards, so they can decide to fort you or kill you is probably one of the more important decisions in every game.... those who communicate better, will be able to make better decisions without ever chatting

with the greasemonkey scripts telling me everything else...its almost nice, if sometimes annoying to either guess at the teammates cards..or wait to chat to make sure killing him is worth it or not...

Id probably vote for it, but it will take away the last little bit of required team chat, for any really experienced team and almost make them too easy

well yes, for someone like you, of course you need to chat...how else would you know what to do? :D


but in all seriousness im all for it, and obviously you sometimes need to chat....sometimes a lot....and I want to see them as much as anyone else

im more commenting that in some ways it will give you all the information you truly need from your partner, coupled with greasemonkey showing me every stat on the board it will take away from the experience just a bit :D

but im all for it.... discussing the cards to see if teamate has 2bl 1 gr or 2r 3bl etc, gets old and tedious...

the comeback youre looking for is "much like yourself"

But that's not the goal here. The goal is to be able to see teammates cards ans STILL use the chat for tactics and strategy. That's what the chat is for; not for asking what cards a teammate has.

I voted no on this....
Why?
Because team communication and working together is a big thing, I have my own little group of friends I play with... WHY? because we play at the same time, don't take turns without one another... that's the big thing about team games... WORKING AS A TEAM. by showing your partners cards you can plan your own strat, thus who knows what the other person is planning, or you look and see the cards they have and like ooo look a card set i might be able to win the game if i get his card set too... I know some people are going to get greedy like that. So me and my friends we work together, and play together, we talk out our strat as a TEAM on what we doing which is why we win alot... seeing each others cards isn't need we just say if we have a set or not. I know little mrs. wicked's gonna say something but it will you'll end up with bad partners who will take out their team mate getting his cards because they thing they can win the game and end up failing and losing it for them... when you don't know what cards they have you tend to think twice about taking out your partner even if you think you could win the game if he has a card set. By showing the cards you also make it more of a 1 sided thing again. and if this makes it there should be a option "show partners cards" and "don't show" for setting up games because i personally don't like it. also another thing, if you play teams in REAL risk you don't have the option of going oh what cards do you have? I like it currently how it is because it's more like that actual risk game.

people are going to chat or not chat whether the cards are there or not. if you want chat so bad, go to the live chat or to the forums.
