Tutorial

Postby wrightfan123 on Wed Jun 06, 2007 5:12 pm

*The first time I played ConquerClub, I was puzzled with several things of gameplay. And now that I'm in a game with a person in a simialr situation, I really think we need a tutorial for the young noobs.

*The tutorial would explain how to play ConquerClub, along with an explaination of te forums, feedback, etc.

*It is needed so that noobs can walk into their first game with a knowledge of how to play. And also, the imprint of the image of a tutorial in their mind could possible remind them to check their moves when normally they would just forget

*Priority:4

Joeyjordison said he'd do something like this one time but it never got going. As good an idea as it is, your problem will be finding someone to devote their time to it (and that someone needs to be a decent player too). At the moment, I think the "Strategy" sub-forum in General Discussion is the best bet. The problem there is that only like 5 (or is it 10?) percent of users browse the forums

New Recruits have tutorial scenarios

Postby sailorseal on Fri Mar 13, 2009 3:35 pm

Maybe before a New Recruit is fully joined they go through practice scenarios where it appears to be a game but it is not really and a computer says "Now try and deploy" and stuff like that

AI Players has already been rejected. I'm not sure that it should be first five, but I think having the option to try the game against the computer would be good.. as long as there were no points gained/lost

Or maybe a scanned notorized document proving said recruit has completed
a minimum of five Risk™ board games before signing on here?

Or mebbe not.

Playing games AI players cuts off one of the best parts of this game (for some people): the fact that you're actually playing a real person, and not just yourself (don't say it).
Being able to communicate with other players also allows the conduction of diplomacy.

No way i want to see this implanted. It seems to be hard making also. Real players involves strategy. So play them if u dont have strategie this aint the game for u.

Again.. I don't think they should play all five games against AI, but playing one single first game vs AI would give them a chance to learn how the game worked, no points would be switched, and it wouldn't count towards their 5 games to get off new recruit.

Playing against a computer just for the heck of it is ok,
but making it a requirement for recruits is just dumb.

Human error is part of the game.

Not the worst idea ever.

Amendment: maybe worth implementing if new recruits have the option of playing AI first game?

Problem: would it be worth the programming needed?
