Could even make each map have a specific round limit to get all the troops deployed by forcing X amount of troops be placed per round.
Not a single comment on this? No one else would rather have sequential troop placement with no fog? Maybe I should have not put the "X" in my text...possibly confused everyone.

Perhaps it might be worthwhile to investigate the idea of keeping the "fog" during the deployment round, but instead of gray question marks use colored question marks so that while you cannot see how many troops have been deployed on that territory you can see where the other players have things.
It already uses coloured questionmarks to show who has which regionsNephilim wrote:dude, lack.....what kind of convoluted reasoning is that? isn't the point of this option to make CC more like the real game?
and who the hell plays the real game with some sort of weird fog option? no one, that's who.
why don't you just give us the option to play it how we want, rather than force this wacky fog thing on us? i won't be playing it
You have to take into account that this is a casual web game designed for people to play without being online at the same time. Say you take turns placing 3 troops when you play the Risk board game... that would take 14 days to accomplish if done sequentially on the Classic map (and we have much bigger maps than that). I don't think that people want to wait 2 weeks to begin a game! And so what if the Risk board game doesn't offer Fog of War? I think most people would consider having that option a big plus. Saying "this sucks" doesn't help anyone but I'm open to any suggestions that make sense with our casual web game model.

To have no blindness at all would cause problems because one player's deployment would affect the next player's decision and the order of deployment would then have too much impact.

Well, in the original game [Ok, someone has already said that this isn't meant to be exactly like the original, but at least consider...], deployment is sequential, so one player's deployment is supposed to affect the next player's decision. If we really wanted it like the original, deployment would be sequential, and there would be no fog. However, that would only work properly if we were restricted to deploying one at a time, and that would take forever!
