Re: fortify anywhere

I think this would be detrimental to strategy, especially in team games. Now, there are times you have to decide between making an attack (usually for a card), or defending a teammate. With this, you could do both easily. It takes away a lot of the tactical decisions that make the game interesting.

I also don't like the idea of being able to send your auto-deploy troops anywhere on the map. That's not what they were designed for. Again, team games would almost be ruined by this. Picture a feudal team game where the lead player is getting 8+ reinforcements from each teammate per turn.

Wonderful idea. I think games played on this setting would be interesting in their own unique way.

I see your point, but this is easily fixed if you choose another setting. At the same time, this would present new and exciting gameplay to every map, including (and maybe especially) the auto-deploy ones you are referring to.

You can't just list all the pros, and dismiss the cons with "it's only an option". You need to address the concerns if you're serious about this suggestion. Then wait three or four years for a chance at implementation.

Indeed, anywhere-unlimited is a very fun option. Basically what happens is that it feels like the game skips to round after a turn or two. People consolidate their troops in a bonus they are strong in. Its particulary interesting on escalating, because rarely are you able to be spread out all over the map. It's a good way to get to the meat of the game quickly, by passing the setup phase for the most part.

It should be implemented here.

I agree. At least two people have brought it up and we have three pages of comments, that has to count for something, right?

You can reinforce one territory with the troops from another, regardless of if they are connected or not.

Specifics/Details:
This would be an alternative to the current Reinforcement options of Unlimited, Adjacent & Chained.

It would be similar to Adjacent and Chained in that you can only make the one reinforcement but you can Paratroop them to anywhere on the map.


How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
This will add a new element to the strategy of troop placement & movement. It would be particularly useful on maps that have an auto-deploy.


I wouldn't want to play this setting. The next suggestion will be unlimited anywheres.

Well, some suggestions have been sticked with only 53% approval, even though I didn't agree with it.

I'm just stickying it to see if anything else happens with the thread.

I like the idea... As with any other suggestion about game modes, it just provides another option (which could be quite entertaining) Stuff like this doesn't ruin strategy, it changes it...and only as an option.
