Suggestion: Fog Confirmation Round

Postby e_i_pi on Mon Sep 07, 2009 2:25 am

Concise description:
  • Allow each player to see a foggy game before it starts

Specifics:
  • Have a 24-hour pre-round in fog games, where every player has to click "Confirm" before the game starts

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Allows players to see the conditions before the game starts
  • Stops game-join delay tactics, speeding up tournament games

FOR ALL THE MORONS WHO CANNOT READ, HERE'S THE DUMMIES VERSION

When EVERYONE has joined the game, there is a 24 hour period where you get to view the game. After that, the game starts. You can't drop out of the game, you can't exit it, you can't pick and f'n choose.

Have a "confirm" button built in, so if everyone has SEEN the map before it starts and clicks the button, then it can start BEFORE the 24 hour period.

Bejesus some people are retarded...

Well you could just make it a 24 hour viewing period, and you click confirm if you've seen it, if you don't click confirm, tough luck, you're in whether you like it or not, and normal deadbeat rules apply

He amended his point... to say that 24 viewing to see what is in the fog.. Personally I think fog is ok. :)

Maybe this could be an option, but I think fog is fine as it is.

Nah, allowing people to drop the game if they think they've got a bad drop is a stupid idea.

Let me rephrase this entire thing better:

What e_i_pi wants is to let everyone SEE where everyone else is before the game begins, so you can plan your strategy around it. You can also be ready for any surprise bonuses that may spring up.

and you have adjusted your original post since I pointed out the flaw in your suggestion :roll:

If you dont like foggy DONT PLAY IT

we dont need to confirm we want to play fog anymore than we need to confirm any other setting

actually you are taking the fun out of the fog option with your suggestion and reducing the attacker risk and changing the dynamics of the game negatively

Ummmm so let me get this straight...... What he is suggesting is a chance to view all the deployments prior to having the fog close over the battlefield??? And then decide whether or not you wish to play in that particular game????

This is absurd on so many different levels. First of all viewing a foggy with the fog lifted, even just in the first round, will totally defeat the purpose of playing fog. Secondly, and most important, viewing the deployments of a game and then deciding whether you wish to play it or not is completely ridiculous. Why would anyone ever accept a deployment that they deemed to be less than 100% to their advantage???
