I've seen this on another site. All one does is put all armies on a single country and hope one goes early enough to do maximum damage.

The fog round is there so you don't just wait to see where your enemy deployed, and base your strategy on that. It would be unfair to whoever placed troops first.

BTW, nice update. =D>

It is a freestyle fog round... you all place at the same time, or within the time frame. You also do not know who starts the game which is very bad for team games. Nobody in there right mind would place 5 men next to 7 when the person with 7 gets to start. I will stay far far away from this.


P.S. Warm the Farmers up :) They will be in full force.

Trust me on this. Why do you think so few people play doubles unlimited forts now? Everybody used to play that style. Now most play chained forts. There is a reason for this.

haven't tried the manual setting, but i do agree with some of the comments that someone with a lucky drop will be doubly lucky with the fog round, just protecting their bonus.

just a suggestion, would it be possible to show which colors own which territories, but keep it "fogged" on the number of troops placed on the map till the game starts? territories can be marked with "x" instead of the number of troops during the fog round.

It does that already, but still does not solve the problem
