Game Statistics

Postby lackattack on Sun Nov 29, 2009 1:47 pm

Game Stats

The addition of card counters back on 2007 was a big hit. Ever since then, the territory counters suggestion has been a hot topic. Well, as of now, you no longer have to count territories yourself. In fact, we've decided to put in the whole game statistics suggestion! Now you can use the number of regions, troops and troops due for each player to make better tactical decisions (without the effort of counting them yourself!).

In a For of War game, the number of regions will display but troops and troops due will be ?s. The number of regions is already available in the game log, so this is not really new information.

These stats appear in the list of players next to the map. This isn't ideal because some people will have to scroll horizontally to see them, but we don't want you to have to scroll vertically each time you roll the dice... erm, intensity levels. So I've started this topic to collect feedback on the post-stats game screen layout. Maybe we can collectively come up with a better layout?

Note to users of the "BOB" community plugin: This update breaks BOB's compatibility with Conquer Club, but sherkaner (who is maintaining the script) has graciously programmed a new version (4.9.7) special for this update, so please upgrade.

Live Clock

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock... goes the time remaining in the game. Now that the game clock is "live", it should be clearer how much time is left for you or your opponent to play.

JavaScript Required

I've reached the conclusion that the time has come to stop supporting browsers with JavaScript disabled. This will make it easier to develop new features like the ones in this update and will help the website run more efficiently. Only a tiny percentage of users play without JavaScript, and if you fall under that group, don't worry the JavaScripts on this website are completely safe.

Love the change, though next to everyone is a dot now instead of the usually green circle or red square.

Its totally screwy for me
When I look at my list of games it says the time left is NaNhrs.....
When I go to an actual game it blinks back and forth between how much time is left and the NaNhrs .
Sooo I cant really tell how much time I have left in a turn with out turning off BOB


Very annoying....... :?

I like the addition. But on the "My Games" page, I liked being able to tell who's turn it was without having to enter Each game. Why did that change? Can it be put back on?

The only apparent problem now is that there are black bullets next to names under Join Games, My Games, etc. Are these temp or something that we should be able to fix?

I really don't like this change... If a player wants to put in the effort to count up the territories and armies that others have, then that's his advantage... this seems to be kind of automating the game, as it seems to be making suggestions for who people should attack (i.e. take down the strongest player). There's a lot of strategy that this stats counter just wipes off the map (pun intended).

So basically this just cancels out BOB, and any advantage that users might have gained...? I definitely liked it better the other way :geek:

yeah ok great but now we can't see who's turn it is anymore on the main game page. just a bunch of black dots.....I really really dislike that. I dont even know how I can manage to play and advise teammates, without clicking into every game to see who is up. Very unhappy about this
