[GP/UI] 2-player "team" games

Postby rocksolid on Tue May 16, 2006 5:57 pm

It seems to me that one interesting game mode would be doubles or triples games where each team is controlled by a single player. 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.

HEADS-UP RISK

Postby Joe McCarthy on Thu Aug 10, 2006 2:49 pm

What would be cool is if there could be heads-up Risk matches. Say each player gets two colors and goes at it like that. thats the way we used to do it with the old board game if there were only two of us. Would be fun for callouts and such.

doubles games for single players

Postby yorkiepeter on Thu Jan 18, 2007 5:47 pm

How many times have you been partnered with an idiot who doesn't understand the game and has cost you valuable points..... or worse teamed up with a deadbeat thus giving you very little chance of winning.

So how about having two colours that you control alternatively as though you had a multi account.

[GP/UI] 2-player "team" games

Postby Yonak on Thu Jun 07, 2007 1:54 pm

Suggestion Idea: First off, I'm not a fan of 1v1 games, mostly because I feel that the dice play too big of a roll in determining the winner. Secondly I play a lot of team games with my friends (playing on the same team against random opponents). In team games, you and your partner(s) need to be in sync with each other to ensure optimal chance of winning. And who do you agree with most if not yourself :)
Which leads us to this suggestion. In the new game type, the settings would be pretty much the same as regular team games, except that team 1 is controlled by one player, and team 2 is controlled by another player. For example, in a triples game, the first player would control red, green, and blue, while the second player control yellow, pink, and cyan. Everything else would be the same including turn order (alternating), zone bonus (one color must control the whole zone to get the bonus), fortification (can't fortify across "teammates"), etc.


Specifics: Team games where team 1 is controlled by player 1 and team 2 is controlled by player 2.


Why it is needed: It allows people with no friends to be able to play team games :lol:
But seriously because more options is better. And this new game type will offer deeper strategy than playing regular 1v1 game. You are now controlling multiple armies instead of one army with multiple troops. Imagine playing a quadruples 1v1!

This would be easy on the game setup screen...

If Doubles is selected and 2 players - then a 2 player doubles match.
If Doubels is selected and 3 players - then a 3 player doubles match.
If Triples is selected and 2 players - then a 2 player triples match.

I like it.

But how would that be team play then? Sorry, but my opinion is that if you want to play by yourself the play singles. Besides, the top players could easily take advantage of it. So, no.

It would be like in a "6" person doubles:
Player 1 has control over red and green
Player 2 has control over blue and yellow
Player 3 has control over teal and pink

I've played this on the board and it's a lot of fun.

oh, sorry, didn't see it in the official suggestion box :?

Found this . (It's under To-do, Gameplay, More Game Types)
But there are many suggestions there and they are quite general. Where as the one suggested here is specific. I hope it warrants its own thread :)

I like this idea a lot. But I don't think it will be passed because the XML could be confusing

Interesting. It would have to be restricted to only Sequential I think. I'm not sure if playing this in Freestyle would make sense. But I'm not very sure about that, so somebody come convince me and I might jump ship.

Overall the idea is worth discussing. As it is now I would not be opposed to implementing it.

I like this idea a lot. Of course, it would only make sense for sequential games. I really like 1 on 1, but I avooid most maps because of advantages of going first. (any map with 36, or 45 or anything with more than 45 teritorries).
