On the other hand, if you were trying to learn strategy on a new map and didnt want to lose points in the process, then a game against yourself would be beneficial.

so my vote is YES for 1v1 ......
and NO for everything else.....

after reading through a little more...it is my understanding that 2 player games with fractions of play would be a great idea. However, having a fractional team versus a 4 player team would not be something I vote for.

In my quote, I was talking about playing a 1v1, 2 fraction game, against ones-self. Just playing by ones-self and trying to learn new strategies.

Hope that makes more sense

2) A team game will be 1v1 doubs, trips, quads (1 player controls all players)


It would be a separate option, not a combined one.

I also voted for "yes", why dont add extra option to the site which eliminates big factor of luck in 1 vs 1 games? I agree with jackal, to make it ONLY for 1 vs 1 playing, not in any other circumstances.

coming upon this late it is hard to add anything new
but i believe in some/ many cases (touched on by prismsaber earlier)
you have high ranks enlisting low ranked player to join in teams
with it understood that low ranked player would (naturally) follow
suggestions of top guy. in effect you have a 1 man quad team.in fact with most teams don't players largely defer
to the highest rank on team. i think its incumbent on those who fear this option will ruin teams to
be cognizant of the fact that it already exists in practice.

I think the whole idea is great. I think players should even be allowed to take on a team. 1 vs 4.

If they do this then they lose points for every slot they take up or they gain points for every slot they take up. I personally would play it some that way but I wouldn't mind being on the other side of things because I would think 4 of us could come up with more ideas than that 1 person.

But that one person would have a large advantage, since they would move four times each round...

farmers paradise. This sounds like a suggestion from a general who just cant quite make it to field marshal or conqueror and is looking for a way to sneak their way in 6-10 points at a time.

PATHETIC!!! And to the colonel before me who i am too lazy to make 2 clicks to check his name (steve066 i actually did check lol). If you think that 1 person taking all 4 turns in a quads game is the same as 4 different people taking their turns is the same, then you are just playing devil's advocate. Because comparing the 2 is assinine, stupid, noobish, ridiculous, and the thought of a asshat.

Close this thread!!!

Actually it is a suggestion from someone, who never engaged in any farming whatsoever in his time @ CC, doesn´t give a rats ass about reaching high scores or rank, and who simply thinks, this game option would offer great fun & challenging games. Maybe talk with your buddy Fenrir, before you run your mouth, taking cheap shots at people you know f'ck all about and making an ass of yourself in public.

As for farming: It exists. It always has existed. And this game option could probably be exploited too. I don´t hear anyone calling for the removal of Freestyle games though, and that is, where actual farming is taking place today. Do you remove/reject a game option, that many players enjoy for the fun of it, only because some asses (might) exploit it ?

As was pointed out some pages ago already: In this 1v1 scenario the evil farmer General would at least always put his own points on the line. Compare that to the evil farmer General of today, who assembles a team of low-ranks who make every move according to his directions.

You guys are really getting your panties in a bunch, whilst completely missing the point.

I completely agree with ahunda, as well as this idea in general.

This is a good idea, and it could be very fun to play with! But if you are saying that its a bad idea, simply because people can take advantage of the system...

Why allow people to create games? They will only make the games they are good at, and there is that possibility that they will invite new players to that game.

While we are at it, lets take away the invite function. It has the possibility that players can abuse it for farming purposes.
In fact, why even allow people to make CC accounts at all? Surely people will abuse this system and make multis, wont they?

Obviously, I am saying those things just to make a point, which is that almost everything can(and is) abused in some way shape or form. But you have to wonder, does the positives outweigh those abuses?

In this situation, the answer is yes. All this would do would be to add another option that people can click, and farm with. Since people already farm without this option, there is little harm, yet since many people would love to play with this option, the positives are great.

Im going to have to ask you guys to please stay on track, and to not insult eachother. This seems like a good idea that alot of people are interested in, so dont get baited into an argument.

To the OP, if you could please keep the discusion's progress in the first post i would really appriciate it. Like from the last few posts i see that people are even talking about a single individual taking on a quads team. If you could throw that in the first post, along with any other changes and or variations, it would allow new commers to know whats going on without having to go through all the pages. In order for this to have a shot at being looked at further, the community needs to agree on it.

I can add a "Discussion" category to the 1st post. Will do that at the weekend, since I´ll need to go through this thread once more myself first.
