Sorry, no versions of undos. It sucks to make a mistake, but you'll have to live with it in a game.

chap, confirmations are a wwwhhhoooolllleeee different topic. If you check out the index in HQ, you'll see that confirmations have been proposed (multiple times) for just about everything, but they're separate from the undo stuff. The answer to the undo suggestions is "No." The answer to the confirmations suggestions is "get a plug-in."

Yeah chapcrap, I don't think any of those 3 threads should have been merged here.
Resume Attack is the one Undo related idea that could actually maybe happen.
Confirm Buttons are a different, potentially doable idea.
And being able to turn the AutoAssault button off via the control panel has almost nothing to do with this thread.

Also you did your links wrong.

Well, I used the post links, not the thread links, so that should follow the post no matter which thread it is in. That's why I don't get it.

Have had my assault phase finish, after just choosing how many troops to move following an attack. Only seems to happen when playing on my phone.

I've clicked end assaults accidentally a few times, while learning the layout. I assumed I may had also done so on my phone, but it just happened now and I certainly didn't this time.

Anyone else had issues with it finishing go for you? Only happens when I use auto assault, but seems strange.

Replay Move REWIND MODE!

Postby FreeFalling123 on Sat Nov 16, 2013 2:43 pm

I like to think of some ridiculous idea where you get the choice to either replay the move or take the move as given every turn. All players get the option to choose if their dice could be better than they replay the move from the deploys. This is probably impossible to get set up for a game, but in the future... how sweet would that be? You get some important roll and you lose it when you should win it, and you replay it and lose it again... :oops:

benefits: players who complain about the dice would be put to shame when they lose some absurd roll so then their opponent who was losing rolls gets shitty dice, rewinds and boom wipes him right out. No more complaining about dice ;)

Okay I think it would just be interesting, not sure what problems this poses in the logistic world, but in my imaginary world I'm thinking I can decide between taking a redo or not, whereas some other noob wins 9v4 with 6 guys left and goes.. man I should get better dice.. rewind LOSES, no more rewind the play must stay and he cries about the bad dice :P

Anyone?

Just clarifying- if you don't get your dice right the first time, you are given the opportunity to replay your move and see if your dice are better, or if you want to go trough a different chain of attacks?

Either way, this is going to be a no. You can use the first attack through as a scout mission and test out different strategies. So, this isn't even about just trying to correct bad dice. But, even if that's all it was about, it's still a no. The dice are random. You don't get second chances.

Yeah, I was thinking a re-roll button more than actually redoing the whole move lol but you have to re-roll all the rolls somehow... Yeah that's a little absurd. I think re playing the move would be the only way it could work.

replaying the move is also a no.

I know you guys dont really give a crap, but the truth is that your reluctance to put in an undo button is one one the reason's I refuse to pay for membership to this site. (I'm premium because it was gifted to me). Your stupid reason's just arent good enough. "Just be more careful". "Take your time". "The coding takes too long". "Mistakes happen in real games too". These cop-outs just make you look lazy and you know they aren't valid reasons for not allowing an undo button. If I were sitting at a real Risk board, there's no possible way for me to accidentally click a button and move my entire army to the wrong territory by mistake. I've been on the site for several years, and I only make a mistake once or twice a year, but when I do it costs me a game, and it's incredibly frustrating to lose a game simply because a clicked my mouse button on accident.

This upgrade needs to happen. Yes, it's been suggested since back in 2006. It's 2014 now. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Good god you guys are worthless... It takes away from the integrity of the game and not having it makes your product worse.

I agree that free style games would be tricky. Given the choice between the two I think most people would rather have the undo option than the ability to play free style games. Or, just hire someone who actually knows how to program (ahem) and you can have both.

:lol: <-- See that little guy? He's picturing the hoards of angry freestylers who just got told that freestyle has been removed, so that everyone else can have an undo button.

My laptop's touchpad just screwed me on my deploy. This game has been going on For. Ev. Er. ... I had it won, and I brushed the touchpad and it registered about 5 clicks in a row right around the area where the deployment button is. Tragic. Now this is going to keep dragging on ... I'm over it.

With you on this one. Clickable map, dodgy mouse, result was all my troops in one place on a trench map; didn't help it was 1 v 1 with an objective and I was going second, but it was still a much worse game than it should have been.
Obviously Undo should be available for deployment; I'm open minded about reinforcement (I don't actually mind, it's the reason I only play Unlimited, although even then it would still be handy for maps with one-way movement).
Definitely for deployment and definitely not for attacks.
