My apologies for the language. Just annoyed by the idiotic remarks.

P.S. What are you forgiven from?

Make a "reset deployment selections" or "undo" button

Postby markus Oralius on Sat Oct 15, 2011 2:21 pm

How about creating a reset button to re-arrange troop deployment (if needed) prior to starting your turn?
This would only apply to any manually placed reinforcements, (obviously no random troop placements)
creating a way to shuffle armies around the board until you chose to lock your selections in and start your turn. Or just create a "troop reset" button that could give you the opportunity to take back bad or accidental placements.
Even an "undo last move" button would be great as an alternative.
It would make troop deployment alot more user friendly.

Marcus Aurelius, just be careful when deploying. I think this type of idea has been rejected about 27 times now.

What happens if you're second? Plus you could just keep shuffling troops until you end up with a fantastic drop. This has too much room for abuse.

let me clarify that it couldnt apply to the initial random troop deployment at all. It would only apply to the reiforcements that you manuallly place at the beginning of your turn.
I switched to CC from another website, and it was one of the top features I thought I would like to see here. It can be done. A button next "begin turn" that could reset troop deployments before your turn starts.
Maybe a better point to make is that it would only improve the game. If the programmers are willing, there is no reason not to have that feature that I can think of.

It would create a whole host of new complications in freestyle games.

Create return to deployment and/or assualt button

Postby redhedge47 on Thu Apr 05, 2012 6:23 am

Create an in game buttons allowing players to:
  • return to and reset the deployment phase before starting your attack phase
  • return to but not reset your attack phase at the beginning of your reinforcement phase

Specifics/Details:
  • Before you make your first assault in you attack phase next to the end assault button there would also be a return to deployment button resting all of your deployments so if you changed your mind before attacking you could go back and change your troops
  • at any time during your reinforcement phase next to the end reinforcements button there would be a return to assaults button that resets any reinforcements you’ve made up to this point and sets your troops back to how they were before you ended the assault
Exemptions
These buttons would not apply in these game type
  • All freestle games
  • Initail Deployment (round 1) of a manual game
How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • I have used other online totally not risk sites that have similar buttons to the ones I have laid out and they are quite convenient when you accidently click a wrong button

This has been suggested before and shot down. Basically, don't mess up.

However, I think that getting a change to redo deployment before attacking is not awful.

Maybe a "Return to Spoils" button might not be a bad idea to add to this.

As an addendum to my previous post have a look:
  1. https://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=155487
  2. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=154562
  3. viewtopic.php?f=471&t=139685

  6. viewtopic.php?f=471&t=28455
  7. viewtopic.php?f=471&t=366
That last one is locked for some reason. :-k

And if you look here: viewtopic.php?f=470&t=2970 You can see that the Undo button is in the rejected list.

I don't see how ... It's not like the other player can tell that you have ended your deployment or assault phase until you attack or reinforce, respectively.

I imagine that the trouble with this idea is that there is some major coding overhaul that would have to come with it because of the way the servers handle the data. But that is just a complete guess.

I have thought that this would be a good thing to have many times. I don't see the harm and completely support this suggestion. But I'm not optimistic.

Because the OP, said reset the armies you have deployed.
And also, it will mess because imagine you just pressed end assaults and the other player starts doing some moves, so you want to go back to the assault phase. With this sug, this will be possible, but on the other hand is your fault for pressing end assault too early... :roll:

OK, I would not be in favor of allowing a player to reset his drop in a freestyle game. Other than that, I am for this. Until you have had some sort of interaction with the map (by dropping, attacking, or forting) you should be able to go back.
