Even having it as an OPTION would be counterproductive IMO.

Every time the flaws of a suggestion are pointed out, the counter-argument is "that's why it would be an OPTION". No. We can't fill the site with terrible "options" that people can just choose not to play. We already have freestyle; isn't that enough?

i think that if you think this out it would always end up with a map with a ton of "1's" and a few "2's" you would never ever get up to 90 troops like in your example.

NO DICE

Postby tonbomorphew on Sun Jul 25, 2010 1:31 pm

On the start a game and game finder boxes there will be:
Dice: Regular - No dice
Gameplay
[*]The attacker has 4 people defender has 2 4-2=2 he gets two armies too advance

Specifics/Details:

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • More people will play games
    Complaints about dice\die will not happen

Since there is clearly no benefit at all to the site, I move that this suggestion be trashed.

This has been suggested before. This would create a ton of stalemate games. Technically, No game on Circus Maximus that is 1v1 would ever end, unless someone deadbeated.

then the only way you would gain an advantage is the drop. There's no way to gain an advantage if both people play correctly beyond what you get on the drop

Perhaps he is also suggesting that there should be no drop, then there will be no complaints about the drop.

But then they'd complain about human error.

How about: no dice, no drop game played by super-computers?

If you play poorly you loose...if you play properly you win? the "randomness" of the dice no longer have an affect on the outcome of the game?

Honestly? I think it's a really dumb idea that hasn't been thought through well at all.

That said, I have always said that I believe that having more options is a good thing. But dumb.
