Re: suggestions for new CC features

Postby markus Oralius on Sun Aug 21, 2011 2:53 pm

I was thinking of limitting the number of reinforcement movements to make. In full disclosure, it's actually not my idea, I use to play on one of CC's competitor's website. CC is superior in almost every way, but I miss that option, it was alot of fun to play with before I switched clubs.

I do not want resign/forfeit as I am winning my board, but every time I try to collect spoils (either one of a kind or three of a kind )I am told "Illegal Group" I must be doing something wrong. Please advise.

please read the instructions again. you can tick off only 3 spoils at a time, not 4 5 1 or 2.
you can only tick off a group of the same color or when every color is different. so all green, all blue, all red or 1 green 1 red and 1 blue.
does this help?

Resign/Forfeit Option

Postby BJH437 on Mon Oct 17, 2011 9:59 am

Why isn't there an option to resign CC? It is somewhat obnoxious, to both all parties, when a game drags on and on when there has already been a clear winner established. Why not add a Resign/Forfeit option to address this? Especially when non-paying parties can only have up to four matches at a time.

Postby Extreme Ways on Mon Oct 17, 2011 12:17 pm

This is posted many times, and I think they couldn't convince the mods for doing this, but personally I'm against it.

-It is way easier to boost this way
-I like to sweep the entire board
-Some douchebags may like the feature to join games and resign...

Maybe if you have some conditions, like
-The opponent owns at least **% of the map
-both players agree
-...

Just my opinion :D

Moved to suggestions..


And it has been suggested quite a few times before, but rejected mainly because it's too easy to abuse.

Because this function has been here already, was abused so heavily, that the Webmaster removed it almost immediately.

A surrender button has been suggested and rejected many times. In fact, this site used to have a surrender button but it was abused and hence the button was removed. This thread is a complilation of over 40 threads of people asking for Surrender Buttons or Resign Boxes or Forfeit Flags and the exasperated rejections of handfuls of moderators. It's not going to happen.

If you insist on wasting time by starting a unique thread, I insist you read through this one first to be certain your idea has not already been rejected.

Damn, and I just had this clever idea for a unique thread, something about a forfeit option.....

voteable end game

Postby talonz on Sat Jan 14, 2012 4:26 pm

Some games devolve into a static grindfest where nothing really changes and everybody stacks and takes 1 region over and over in the hopes that someone else will lose patience and make the first move/mistake.

Boring.

It would be great if past a certain round limit all players can vote to end the game without points loss or something.

Or is there a way to have a game editied and a round limit added once its begun? Can and admin do that?

Play games with round limits if you don't want the possibility of ending up in a stalemate.

Suggestions like this have been tried before and they won't work out.

First, there won't be games worth no points. That's not something that will happen.

Second, a button to forfeit has been used before and it was abused, so it was removed.

Another option is to try to create a tiebreaker game with all of the people involved. Whoever wins the tiebreaker, gets to win the original.

Landgrab.net has the option to leave the game and there is no drama, never was, never will.

But what's really off-putting is the contempt that CC staff chide users with. All these years so many people have just been asking for what is logical and you are the adamant minority against it, giving excuses like "omg and now the spoils" - logically the player turns into a Neutral and the spoils remain attached to it.

Once again it's all about business. Just admit that it is a way to encourage people buying an account. It's acceptable.

But then again, this is nothing personal, it's directed at the site, not you. Please don't feel offended.

Wise up. The nature of the players on this site is to cheat in some way, shape, or form. Multies, account sitting abuse (several forms), farming, and bending the rules in other ways to gain points. And you want to add a "resign/forfeit" button?!?!? Like the mods aren't up to their necks in shite already.... "adamant minority" my ass. Try "informed and sensible minority" (on this occasion) .

Losing on purpose is against the rules. If the button is there people can forfeit on purpose and throw points to people.

Sorry, that's a false dilemma.

Nobody throws points away, only multiaccounted people.

Anyone can throw points without a Resign button. Takes a couple of minutes farming. Staff members have done that.

Learn with Landgrab, it's miles above this one in every sense, specially regarding mentality and maturity, you know, those minor details.
