There should be some sort of points for taking out someone. Even if you lose, you showed guts and ruthlessness :twisted:

What about no loss pts for second?

Hey I do not know if everybody would think this is stupid, but I found that often games ends on who gets their cards at the good moment once in one-on-one. I know I lost a lot of games where at one point we were even strengh and only two players and I ended up not only winnig 0 pts, but I lost pts. It is true that the game of risk is a simulation of a nation trying to rule the world and it is true that in real life, if someone manage to control the world, nobody would care about having been the last nation to be under domination, but you have to have made good decisions to finish 2nd.

What would you think if a 2nd place out of a single game (no team) doesn't loose any pts. Am I the only one who thinks that would be nice.

So the winner gets less points unless the otehr players lose more points to make up for the points your keeping

I don't think there should be points for second, because then people will just strike deals that will hand cheap wins to whoever's the strongest player. ie. leave me to last and I'll help you win, or even just trying to develop some strong fortifications in a corner in the hope they will be left last.

I admit sometimes it's unfair to lose points when you played far better than some of the others, but I think on balance it'd be better not to implement this.

Just play games with a flat rate or no cards and quit complaining.

The flat rate or no cards is a good idea. Thanks, I did not think about it.

Only problem is that those games take much longer to complete, which in turn makes you less eligible to attain points.

i agree with him. i think the winner should get the normal amount of points, but 2nd place shouldnt lose points or somehting. Coming in 2nd place in a 6 person game is hard. i think 2nd place should get some reward for lasting that long.

I agree. Getting second place would be a last ditch effort to break even. First place will still be worth risking it because of all those juicy points you'll get.

Maybe you should lose less points progressively, depending on what position you finish in.

So first eliminated loses the most, last eliminated loses the least, percentage wise.

I think all losers should lose some points, but a sliding scale might add some interest to games where you get a bad start and have no real chance of winning. At least then you can try to hang on and do some clawing back, to save yourself some points...

btw shouldn't this be in the suggestions forum? lack is more likley to see it there...

I don't like the percentage option.

If you lose, you lose.

You could get screwed by your turn in the game (sequential games) and you coudl get screwed by where your armies are if you don't have any other armies around to help fortify.

Booooooo on this rule
