Great idea... great feedback from some players already. I'll sticky this of now and see what happens.

Cheers, JB ;)

I'm glad you all like it :)

ljex, I agree that manual makes it fair, but it makes it completely different, that only really works on maps like city mogul like you said, where it doesn't matter

This will make a big difference in FS 1v1 manual games as well. As it stands, if you join 2nd in a manual game, you can usually deploy and end first. If the two stacks happen to be next to each other, the player who ended deployment first, and starts his turn first, will usually win.

This will give the player who started the game a fair chance to deploy and end turn before his opponent.

nice suggestion, it is somewhat disappointing when someone joins an automatic freestyle game and knocks down a few territories (lowering my deploy likely) and would give people time to study the map/drop, I like it

based on other suggestions, this needs more support to get through no matter that all 9 people like it so far. I hate getting spam PM's/ wall messages, so I'm not gonna send those, but please support this if you like the idea :)

Amazing Idea Guys.

Perfect, especially when you get a great drop and the other person get a horrendous one and then they log off and come on 3 hours later.

Might give you a chance to catch them!

Fully support it. Its quite annoying when you go on to take your turn 10 seconds after the game has started and your territ bonus is already gone or the troops were you could've blocked a bonus is gone.

i think if they do that, which is a great idea, then the speed game should also have a 2 minute run time......5 minutes is way to long to have to keep hitting the "R" button...may stop alot of people wearing out their finger muscles

is that a joke? You should quote his whole post, he was suggesting I start a poll. If you were trying to troll him go to bumpage.


And for our freemium poster, i was suggesting this only for speed games, unless you're actually online it wouldn't matter for casual games ;)

love this idea.

Don't like the 2 min idea though. Its hard enough playing a speed hive game with 5 min turns if you play escalating :P

people doing it "the shifty way" would want it to change. They can start games on the hardest maps and still be able to start at the same time as their opponents
