I voted in favour of the "Attack details in game log" because I would love to see a replay feature. However, one other feature intrigues me. What exactly is meant here by "initial army placement"? I went to Lack's To-do list, but the topic link there seems broken.
I presume we will not get to choose our own starting territories, since some maps require specific starting positions. So, I guess the system will choose the starting positions, but will only put one troop on each spot, and then the players would get to decide how many more from their initial allotment to put on each spot. But what are the mechanics of this step?
- One troop per player in sequence? (Wouldn't that take a terribly long time?)
- One shot by a player to put as many as troops as desired on a spot, with no going back, again in sequence?
- Some other sort of sequential procedure that I have not imagined?
- Some sort of freestyle placement? (If so, let's get very clear about who goes first after this is done. We don't want another squabble about double turns.)
