well, I think you should get points on how much you participate and on how much you help your teamate, so like if a teamate fortifies his teamate at the beggining but then he doesnt play for a few days (for some reason) he should at least get some points for helping his teamate like 20/100 points awarded for his team if his team wins.

deadbeat teammates...

Postby Maybemaybenot on Sun Oct 28, 2007 10:08 am

im not sure its entirely fair that my team mate can play two rounds then deadbeat and still gets half the points if i win. and yes it actually happened to me. is there any way to fix it so that a deadbeat team mate forfeits his/her points to their team mate(s) if they're kicked out for missing too many turns?

I like that because you have to work 2 or 3 times as hard to win, you should get their points.

What I think is unfair is that if you play singles, you get the missed armies with a multiplier, but if its a teammate, you get nada.

Suggestion - doubles play and deadbeating

Postby Fredly One on Wed Jan 16, 2008 11:41 am

I would like to direct you to game 1422279. One of the players deadbeated was eventually got kicked out of the game. However, his partner went on to win (by the way not really impressed by the fact that a player kicked out doesnt turn to a neutral - but rather transfers to the partner - a huge tactical advantage) but both got the full measure of points.

I suggest an expelled player NOT receive any points and,
if the kicked out player reverts to neutral and his partner wins he should get all of the available points, if not then what he/she gets now the winner based on his rank.

definately soemthing to think about.

Firstly, if your teammate deadbeats you should definitely get his/her armies.

You're at a massive disadvantage as (if it's doubles) your opponents will take two turns to your one - so you get an advantage with cards (esp. in an escalating game). Also, one player and a deadbeat should have less territories after three turns (the soonest you can deadbeat) than two players working together, so the double will also be getting more reinforcements.

As for the points; I can see the argument - but you win or lose as a team. That's part of the attraction and part of the gamble involved.

Deadbeat teamplayers not receiving gamepoints

Postby Frederique on Mon Jan 28, 2008 6:16 am

At first I want to appologize if this topic has been discussed somewhere else before, I coulndt find it..

Would it be an idea to take away the gamepoints of the deadbeat teamplayer.

Example:
Quadruples game, everyone same rank.
Normally you would receive 20 points each for the victory. However if one of you team players dead beats, he still gets the points. My suggestion is to exclude him from the points giving so the winning team receives his points so lets say 23points for the other 3 teammates each. This is the same as extracting his game points from the total of the team and therefor it would be as if the ranks were unequal...

Hope you kind of got my point.

Please comment on this to see what you think!

yes but if someone deadbeats, he/she doesn't want to be in the team anymore and therefore is obviously not to be considered part of the team IMHO

so in your opinion someone who plays 50 rounds without missing a turn, eliminates 3 out of the 4 from the other team and then, due to the length of the game misses 3 turns in a row while on holidays should get no points whatsoever.

I'd be for this idea if the team mate never took a turn.

I'm pretty sure this has been suggested before, I'm just having problems finding it.

some people may use this as a tactic to win.... quad game, deadbeat so your team gets your terr. and more armies per turn.... like on age of might... if 2 players dead beat then the other 2 players get 10 a turn instead of 5.... if it lasts that long lol.

You can't play Quadruples on Age Of Might (max. 6 players). ;)

Yeah I meant it when they dead beat in the beginning of the game. I dont see how this can be an atvantage since there is hardly anything to start with. Especially with escalating the different between 3 players getting cards and 4 players getting cards, is huge already.

Postby demon7896 on Mon Jan 28, 2008 9:39 pm

on that note, i don't think that deadbeat teammates should be able to give their armies to their teammates. it should at least be an option, and it could become a cheating strategy

DEADBEATERS. SHOULD THEY GET ANY POINTS?

Postby Bolbs on Tue Feb 05, 2008 12:21 pm

Is it really fair that deadbeaters get a share of the points if the team still ends up winning? Equally is it fair that players lose the same points as the deadbeaters although the deadbeaters obviously contributed massively to the loss.

In game 1521521, BOTH my partners have deadbeated, and yet I have still managed to set up a winning position. I feel aggrieved that they are gonna get a share of the points even though they could easily have cost us the game.

Do you agree?

IT DOESN'T HELP TO WRITE IN ALL CAPS. IT IS ANNOYING. IT WONT GET YOU ANY MORE POSITIVE SUPPORT, JUST PEOPLE COMPLAINING THAT YOU WROTE IN ALL CAPS.


-seriously, all caps is really annoying...
Yes, I agree that deadbeats should not get points, but NO, dont write in all caps.
