bring back the surrender option for...

Postby haha on Fri Jan 16, 2015 4:05 pm

I would suggest bring back the surrender option for bot games and maybe two person games.

bot games- not point based- excluding tournaments.
two person games- once a two person game is over- who wants to stick around- this would be particularly pleasant for speed game.

o and for those who are curious this site originally had a surrender option but that was removed relatively quickly for i think fairly obvious reasons. I would not advocate for bring the surrender option back to all games but to only the ones listed above.

While it is an interesting idea for bots, it would be much easier for a player just to finish it out. Plus, bots aren't too hard to beat unless you play them in scenarios- which are a "join at your own risk" idea.

2 player has been suggested before.

At your insistence, I read pages of the thread, Charbroil. Still, the way they created these bots who don't attack properly, you just sit there turn after turn squandering your troops, hoping against hope that the silly bot will finally deal the crushing blow... Stink! What a waste of time!

Look, if the bot game is absolutely lost, since there are no points scored, won or lost, and no cards to forfeit or worry about, JUST ALLOW us to END THAT GAME, drop the game, terminate the game, stop the game, finish the game, tell the bot to attack to end the game, allow us to skip to round 20 or whatever, etc., etc., etc.

Really!

Just let us terminate the game.

It happens in real life in games: "I don't wanna play no more!" and they get up and walk away. Or, you get in a huff and flip the board game up in the air, spilling pieces all over.

Even when nations battle, they negotiate an armistice, a truce, an unconditional surrender, or simply surrender their swords, one general to another.

I get not allowing it for team games, unless everyone on the team agrees that it's over and there is no possibility of a comeback. Then everyone on the losing team must click it in the same round, and the confirm button would say that they agree that they will lose the standard number of points to the other team if they choose to continue.

How hard can it be to put in a confirmation page?

I'm a serious player and (almost) never miss turns, yet I feel, as obviously many, MANY others do, that we should be able to concede, like in long trench games, where its slow molasses to let the guy with 50 troops to your string of seven silly singles, with you having no chance of beating 50 troops with your 3 deploys. Round after boring round, you slog thru your frustration, seething, angry at CC for not just allowing you to surrender your sword and forfeit your points. ARGH!!!

Please fix this!!!

Will you please CONCEDE and repair this???

i think it is pretty evident that every owner of the site is not going to put this feature back into play... the one that did it first, quickly removed it after abuse... the track record, the litmus test, the precedent exists... it will be and was severely abused in the past... just not going to happen...-Jésus noir
