New Game Style

Postby dildobaggins on Tue Apr 09, 2013 9:30 am

[NEW GAME STYLE]

It would be fun and a different strategy if you had it so 1 player had 2 colors to control in a game.
Ex: Imagine a 4 player doubles game there is a red & green on the same team, instead player 1 has control of both sets of troop colors. Player 2 has both yellow and blue control. This calls for more think ahead strategy similar to team games but minus the possible deadbeats or clueless random teammates. We should give this a try if the programming can understand this new style of gameplay. :D =D> :ugeek:



Concise description:
  • 1 Player 2 Colors

Specifics/Details:
  • see above

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • New strategy/gameplay similar to team games with less cooperation fails

you could have the players name read:
ex: dildobaggins squad 1
dildobaggins squad 2

Ps. can even have gameplay of up to 8 squads each in a 2 player game..ideal for big maps that are no fun with 2

So you get team medals for playing by yourself?

I don't care about medals, but I imagine most would be annoyed by that.

I'm sure someone will be along soon with a link to a previous identical suggestion as I've seen this before, and that link will contain many of the arguments I've seen against it. In theory I like the idea and I hope you stick with it and modify it and work it to become something that can work, but you have some problems to overcome before it can become a really viable idea. Good luck!

I'm against this option. A team game is necessarily with teammates not yourself and I don't feel it is sufficiently different enough to justify implementing it. I really don't see the point other then to add more settings to confuse everyone

It seems to me it's a valid exercise in strategy, and I imagine the only thing standing in the way is the whole new leaf in programming that would be required. What thinks the peoples? This can of course be done by having multiple accounts, which in this case would not be unsportsmanlike, but of course unacceptable at CC for other reasons.


I agree that if one looks deeper, someone else, not rocksolid had actually suggested the polymorphic option to deal with 1v1 game specifically in the context of mitigating the 1st turner advantage.

In fact, rocksolid was speaking about a different matter altogether that is a player controlling team games. The 1st turner problem above was not even in his mind at the time he wrote the post. He was talking about a different way of cooking chicken when the polymorphic (as I understand how bigWham presented it) was about a different way of cooking a duck! LOL

Anyone who is interested can read my post about the differences between chicken and ducks. :lol:

A (philosophical?) question as to whether this mode is intended as a variant on team games or on 1v1 games.

I think it's most properly classified as a variant on team games because I like to classify things by the strategy and gameplay involved. I realize that if you classify things by alone-ness or team-ness, this is more like a 1v1 variant, but I'm not convinced that's a useful categorization method.

If the turn order in team games (Team 1 versus 2 setting) is manipulated, an interesting 1v1 pattern emerges. Please refer to my post on " Alternating First Turns In Team Games"

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=197437&p=4316832#p4316832.

The above hypothetical team game scenario develops into a series of "1"v"1"with 2 differences.

Firstly, "1" in this case actually means 1 pair of colours/armies from each team.

Secondly, the 2nd turner actually starts with 2 deploys (since we are speaking in terms of pairs). In comparison, the first turner starts with 1 deploy, only one half of the 2nd turner.

The above was originally suggested as a variant team play option besides dealing the 1st turn advantage in a team setting. The ensuing discussions resulted in the above "discovery".

If we take the half deploy as a benchmark of a fairer deploy, then this suggests that the first turner (using the current CC default settings) had gotten at least twice over the "fair deploy"!

Perhaps, CC could consider reducing the 1v1 games (singles and teams) first turner deploy ?

Cheers, naruto
