Fog Rule [done]

Postby MoB Deadly on Sat Sep 08, 2012 2:38 pm

Not sure what the "best mannered" thing to do in this situation is.

We are in a clan war
Our opponents, just being polite, waited to go until we got a snapshot. (not a rule, and we didn't ask for it)
After a while, we did get the snapshot and posted in chat.
Our opponents missed the turn. (Because we didn't get snap fast enough)
Do we take the turn? Miss a turn on purpose?

Feedback please.

answer:

wrote wrote:Take the turn. The fog "rule" allow your opponent 12 hours to get the snap. The person that "waited" for you knew when his turn window would end and could have played at any time after the 12 hours without feeling that they did not give you a fair window. My bet is that the missed turn has very little to do with the fog rule....

Yup, there are various things different in clanwars then in regular games. Often (not always)a fog rule is in effet that states that the first team has to wait untill the other side has taken their snapshot or wait 12 hours, whichever is shorter. Some of these rules state you can take the turn, but if you blacken out a bit of the sights (aka win) then you discribe how it was before you attacked..
both are in the interrest of keeping things more fair, because otherwise joining last is too big an advantage

well that is possible. usually it is a good faith rule, meaning that if for some unforseen sircumstance you do not follow it, there is hardly any penalty, but it could be that the game now counts as a loss as well..
aka wins...

An easy solution to this is to just play sunny if people want to see the board. O:)

There are a lot of people that enjoy playing fog of war games that equally enjoy getting an equal first glance at the board.
