Just imagine, in a casual no fog game there are a player, who can login only 1 or 2 times a day (see CC-Homepage), and another player, who is online almost a full day (so he can see the map after everybody's moves).

Who will win??

@ QOH - Very true... i hadn't thought about some of the maps and how it'd effect them. Althought you have to say its not like every game mode suits every map now?

The difference is someone could be getting huge and start sweeping through the map only to find someone has stacked since turn 1 and has a collosus ready to turn the tables for example? I still think the idea has merit.. Althought i maintain i personnaly probably wouldnt play it! Lol.

Murphy - Were you thinking of removing spoils and territ info too? Otherwise with the above point you could see when someone starts to spread and get large to a extent?

I'm talking about keeping it just as the glitch was, no game log, but yes everyone can see how many spoils and regions each player has, with troops and troops due still hidden as well. Nothing is being changed except for the view of game log.

Part of skill, especially on a map like AOR, is all about your ability to read the log. The biggest part of being good at AOR is your ability to read the log.

Okay this is why it is a game OPTION, if you don't want to use it then don't, however there could be plenty of people who don't read these forums but would play it. The only purpose of this OPTION is to enhance the sight, just as FOW has done. You wanna play with a game log the don't select this new option, plain and simple! So I don't see why you would try to shoot it down because you use the game log to play.

Honestly there really is no valid reason to shoot this idea down, you don't want to play with it, then don't select it as an option.

@ Geger - People stack all the time in regular FOW all the time and hide it, It's so easy to build a stack and use smaller stacks to take cards, still keeping your larger one hidden, so it really doesn't matter if your on all day or once or twice a day. If you fear your not going to like it then once again don't choose the option.

Murphy has had a great rebuttal to all rejections offered so far. This idea really has merit.

Log can be hidden for players only. MH should still be able to read the log and it will be a no brainer for SD. Also log can be revealed when the game has finished like it is now with normal fog.

It's like asking "who will win, better player or worse player". This mode is not about equality. Freestyle is not an equal mode though many people enjoy it here. If you can spend more time on a game then you should have benefits from it (at least in certain areas). Remember the MMORPGS - who plays more has more and so on. And yes, again, this is just an option. For skilled players. Yes.

Thank you Dako for the support and some inside from the Tech team. Given your input it makes the option much more open to being on the positive side!
