Random game options

Postby JOHNNYROCKET24 on Mon Jan 24, 2011 6:18 pm

We already have a random map feature. Why not have random spoils and reinforcements ? Throw in fog or no fog. Nukes, etc. Make the entire game play a complete surprise !

It does sound like fun. However, it might be worthwhile to exclude a very few maps. Not many, but just some combinations that plain won't work.

For example, Fuedal and AOR already cannot have more than 6 players. That is an "internal" limit. AOR1 without fog is not really a game, so that could be excluded... very, very few others.

Then again, the chances of getting one of those games in a pure random selection is slim, and perhaps that would just be part of the fun.

What can you possibly 'hate' about a random choice?

Also, the above comment. With the random settings, you still need to select the number of players :roll:

How about random play order?

Ummm...while I strongly disagree with Donlarry, I can think of many reasons why someone might hate a random choice. It seems rather obvious to me, even.

I see no reason at all to exclude maps.

With the proper coding, this would be self-limiting...it should only select from the maps that fit the number of players.

Screw that...it's still a game. It may be relatively pre-determined, but certainly not guaranteed.

This is a good idea.

I would like to see a map exclusion in random feature as well. An option to exclude certain maps from random. I run random maps in my tourneys as a neutral map but would love to be able to exclude the Hive map as so many people hate it. It would also be nice to exclude both players home maps in the random feature so that their home maps don't come up in the random game & give that player an advantage.

I think an exclusion for tournaments would make sense. However, as Woodruff noted, random is random. Playing those strange combinations you might not otherwise choose is part of the fun!

I agree, except that I would want to be able to select freestyle versus sequential play. A lot of people, such as myself just don't have the time to play freestyle. (wait for someone to "blink")

I think it there should be an option that includes freestyle/sequential, but without the option to exclude that, a lot of people who might like this option will be forced to decline.

This made me literally laugh out loud.

I think it's a good idea and a good option to have. Although, I'm not sure that I would use it much.
