Update for Game Instructions for team games [Done]

Postby Grifter on Thu Sep 17, 2009 2:45 pm

Concise description:
Update the Game instructions for team games to clarify the reinforcement rule
http://www.conquerclub.com/public.php?mode=instructions3
To play a team game, try doubles, triples and quadruples. Quadruples games must be played with 8 players, triples games with 6 players, doubles games with 4 or 6 or 8. Teammates are determined by the sequence of players, for example the first two players and second two players make up two teams in a doubles game. In team games, you can deploy on and reinforce your teammate's regions. The score is calculated per team. When a player is auto-kicked in a team game, the first surviving teammate inherits the troops and spoils.


Specifics:
  • I discovered the hard way that I can only reinforce to my team mate's territories that are adjacent to my own. I can't chain it through multiple territories that a team mate holds.
  • For example if I hold territory A and my team mate holds B and then C then I can only reinforce to B not C.
  • I suggest to update instructions as below

In team games, you can deploy on to any of your teamate's regions and reinforce to your teammate's regions only that are directly adjacent to your own. The score is calculated per team. When a player is auto-kicked in a team game, the first surviving teammate inherits the troops and spoils.

The first time I played team I got caught with this as well so it would be a good thing to know.. On the flip side, after the first time you're not going to forget it. I agree though, that it would be good to have it in the instructions.

This would be nice; I got fooled by it in my first team game too.
Important Tournament Notice

The data for ALL of my tournaments has potentially been lost. I am working to recover it but as I am away on business all of this week, there will be some delay. Sincere apologies.

Is this true regardless of the reinforcement option (unlimited/chained/adjacent)?
