what a wonderfully conceived and fully fleshed out idea... wow!!! how hasn't anyone ever come at this issue in such a cerebral and eloquent matter?!! this should further the discourse on this hot button topic, without fail... *eyes rolling*... search is your friend... mega thread on this already, it has been soundly rejected...-Jésus noir

real men don't surrender or wear underpants...

Never heard this idea before, I approve. Can we also have a retire option? I also think that there should be arrangements made for redundancy payments, should the need arise.

I'm in favour of a forfeit button. I hate playing games when I know it is over. So now I just stop taking turns because what is the point. I do message my opponent and let him know I will not be taking anymore turns. This slows a lot of games up but I am not going to keep playing games where I lose 10-1 battles. It's not good for my blood pressure.

Judging from the "Is CC Declining?" thread, it seems like there are thousands of former players who haven't had any problem finding the retire option. Maybe one of the reasons they've "retired" is that instead of fixing problems with popular features, they just remove them.

Surrender Button

Postby Ulm on Tue Oct 07, 2014 2:15 pm

We have all been in the position that we have lost, need to leave the game etc. Rather than wasting folks time dead beating it would be great if there was a 'Surrender Button'. Your troops would stay for three turns but the time of your go would be zero.
What do think?

Not very sporting.
Just deploy then end your turn. The game will finish far more quickly than waiting 24 hours.
You're probably also overlooking the 10 v 5 battles where you keep 9 troops - but then so do most :roll: . That's another thread.

Forfeit/resign is a great idea for honest people. Too many not-honest people are the reason it's rejected.
I also believe you do have to anticipate cheating before it happens - it would be irresponsible not to. To say it's "incorrect" that it will be abused is, in my opinion, naive. One isn't supposed to create multiple accounts, but so many are busted. If one isn't that way inclined it's difficult to imagine why anyone would bother to abuse a simple, fun, game site, just to get points; I'm sure there's a psychology treatise to be written about how people validate themselves by breaking rules in places like this.
Sadly, humans are terrible. :(

Ya I know it's not sporting. But this isn't a sport. It's a game based on luck. I don't want to waste my time when the dice have been programmed to make me lose so my average rolls are always 3.5.

This way people don't have to play a bunch of rounds in games that are clearly decided. especially trench games it becomes obvious the game is over but on some maps you have to play a bunch more turns afterwards. Just a waste of time.

real simple... this has been debated for years and has been soundly [REJECTED]... too much room for abuse... will never happen...-Jésus noir

Hmm...
I don't want to waste my time

...then take your turns, it's quicker than deadbeating.
It's a game

..so don't take it so personally
based on luck.

the dice have been programmed

Can't have it both ways... :roll:
my average rolls are always 3.5

...which is of course what they're supposed to be.

I know it's frustrating to waste time on a lost cause; but either accept that's what's going to happen sometimes, or restrict yourself to settings where it's less likely, or stop playing; but if you're going to play, play nicely, drop the paranoia and take your turns.

always the freemiums crying out for this the loudest.. imagine that... hmmmm... pretty much unlimited games for free, without having to pay.. you know, almost as good as premium, just a few less game options. this will never happen. freemium players would abuse it to the nth degree and the site would lose money like a $2 whore on dollar day.. never going to happen.. the black jesus has made his decree...-Jésus noir
