Exactly. As an option.. no problem. People who want this (clan competitions can specify it, tournaments can use it, etc.) fine. As a forced action.. no.

Fog of War 24 Hr Delay

Postby osujacket on Thu Mar 24, 2011 9:23 pm

For fog of war would it be possible to put a delay in the game to allow a snapshot for both sides? This would prevents someone from starting the game without the other one getting a fair look at the map.

Once the snap shot was taken the person could end the turn and it could begin. It wouldnt have to last 24 hours.

Consider it.

I don't like the idea, FoW is FoW. Part of the fun of it is if your first and you can blind your opponent from much of the map they have to guess where you are, and vice versa if your the blinded. That's what I enjoy about it atleast.

Part of the fun is the player who goes first getting an extra advantage? I feel comfortable saying you're in the tiny minority who believes that statement.

I'm in that minority too. Fog is fog.

....................................................................

I do support this suggestion, or automatic snapshots, or SOMETHING. However I feel compelled to address some followers of the Fog Party. I'm sick to death of receiving passive aggressive messages from players complaining about it not being fair that they didn't get a chance to use an advantage that many players don't have access to. I've made my thoughts on this "level playing field" clear and I don't want to derail the thread, so again, I support this suggestion.

In the meantime, if you want your opponent to wait to begin their turn, have the courtesy to message them and request this favor instead of being indignant that they didn't adhere to your rules of etiquette.
