My apologies if your really this retarded,i wouldn't want to insult the mentally challenged.


I had some counter-insults lined up, but will refrain.

If I offended, I apologize. I had not intended to be insulting, but merely chose to act upon a whimsical opportunity for comedic interlude. Forgive my garish lack of tact and obvious rude behavior, what with inserting myself into your discussion thread uninvited.

I shall leave you to your.. umm.. whatever it was you were doing.


Seems i misunderstood you,i apologize for my insult

hope you accept :)

I get it now. the insults are a deflection. Now that you see it's not likely to be implemented, you've started insulting people, so that when this is over, you can go away telling yourself, "What do those idiots know anyway? Hrmph!"

I'm okay with the insults now. Whatever will help you deal with this difficult time.


I answered an insult with an insult not because i'm pissed that an idea will get rejected,i could really care less.But belittling people on here seems to be the norm that i see in the forums anyway.It was just a simple suggestion that most misread .

Sorry but i disagree i find it more strategic than throwing a gazzillion armies on one territory and getting lucky on the rolls and matches.

What i meant by too involved was the time taken to play it,maybe not a good choice of words but not meant as an insult to the site.

But you go ahead with your half assed assumptions of me if it makes ya feel good.


I understand that you might not value my opinion on the subject. Perhaps some more opinions on the matter might help. Here are 4 threads that I just found with a quick, and easy search.

Thanks for the links and for showing me for the lazy person i am ;)

Seriously tho i looked 2 years ago when i first started playing and didn't find it so assumed it hadn't been brought up.Must have missed the one from 2006.
Looks like it will never happen,and don't understand why anyone would vote "no" on something that they would have the "option" not to play.

Just liked the idea of playing this on here,would be alot easier than getting everyone i know who plays together on the same day ,plus ya gotta figure out who's bringing the beer and weed and so on.

oh well sorry i brought it back up,and no hard feelings i hope. :oops:

Re: Max number of troops on each territory....

Postby Irather Nottell on Wed Feb 24, 2010 2:13 pm

Gravedig........


I was looking to see if this had been proposed, or if I needed to start a new thread. I think that having the option of a troop limit would be awesome. Combining this with the adjacent reinforce and incremental spoils makes the game all the more about positioning yourself for future turns rather than just making kamikaze runs across the board after massive trade ins. I personally love the 12 troop cap on the original board, but admit that on bigger boards that would probably not work well. Each map could have its own unique cap when the option was selected or there could be several different cap limits to choose from when starting the game. Either way, if you do not like the caps, then do not play them. If you do, then enjoy them.

Suggestion:Option to limit the number of troops per square

Postby paullb on Thu Mar 04, 2010 8:26 am

<DELETE ME>


Option to limit the number of troops per square:


Specifics:
  • When this option is selected upon creation of a game, the number of troops that can be placed on a square is limited to a given number (say 12, or some other fixed or a choice of fixed numbers). Users could not place (via direct bonuses to that square or via deployment) more troops than that maximum on any square.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • This will prevent stalemate troops build ups and other add another dynamic to the game.

I noticed this was request by another player in a separate thread...

and to add to the convo:

How is strategy enhanced by limiting the number of choices you have?


I would ask you to look at games with adjacent fort vs. unlimited fort. Which style requires more strategy and planning? I sat adjacent, and I would bet most people agree....and adjacent fort clearly has much fewer choices than unlimited.

no, almost every bloody game if you play feudal 5 or 6 man in the fog. as for this making the game more strategy than luck, you are a fool. you have to take the cards into account in your strategy, a fact you clearly haven't picked up on yet if you think that coming back from one ter is an undeserved win.

kcoenich wrote:Well... the way I see it is that 20 vs 20 (or max number vs max number) is much more exciting than say 54 vs 19... plus it would be an option, not an absolute rule...

Plus, Strategy is the best part of the game, so the more strategy you put on the game, the better it gets... believe me, you feel a looot better when you win a 20 vs 20 battle than winning a battle of 65 vs 30, that outcome is absolutely obvious.



the object of the game is to have prepared to have that 65 vs 30 advantage, it don't happen by accident, it's just another ploy to have the player who is taking a whipping to prolong a game and extend the game with the inevitable outcome of taking your ass whipping.

I MAY BE IN THE WRONG WITH THIS SUGGESTION BUT WHAT IF WE MADE IT SO THAT AFTER THE ROUND IS OVER ALL TERRITS. WITH TROOP NUMBERS OVER 20 (OR WHATEVER THE MAX NUMBER IS SET TO) ARE REDUCED TO 20. IF YOU CASH IN OR HAVE A TROOP DEPLOYMENT NUMBER OVER 20 YOU CAN STILL DEPLOY THEM... IT'S JUST THAT WHEN THE ROUND ENDS IF YOU HAVE NOT SPREAD THEM OUT YOU SCREWED YOURSELF OVER.



ANYWHOO.... I LOVE THIS OPTION.... WILL PLAY THIS IF WE SAY YES TO IT.
