Hmm, yeah I tend to forget about a game after that final rush...
I'm thinking too that a replay of a foggy game in non-foggy conditions wouldn't necessarily help you in the future since it's the foggy state that forms the whole strategy. Also, those people that are highly successful at this game don't need a function like this since they do this automatically in their head. I'm not saying I am so ambitious but I know that it is possible with enough experience and study of the game log.

I think that a lot of members of CC would be happy to be able to rewatch a game especially if its a fog game. i also think this could just be part of the premium package because I'm willing to bet that people would be willing to pay for this option
HAHA


I have a hard time believing that you couldn't find this topic if you really searched for it.

replay button

Concise description:
not sure if it had been suggested before but here goes i would like a replay button so at the end of a game you can play back the game play by play rather than reading the log.
dont need to see the dice just the moves a bit like a snap shot of every turn. i like to look at games others have played to learn best tactics or not that was played to win the game.

<sigh> ... There are instructions on how to use this forum effectively, there is a template that is provided when you click New Topic that you actually have to delete in order to write a suggestion that looks like this, there is a sticky at the top of rejected suggestions with this very topic that you would find if you looked for "replay" ... I don't know what else I can possibly do :roll:

MERGED.

This will no longer be considered to be rejected status. The OP has been updated with a few words and this is MOVED from rejected.

What happens behind the fog, stays behind the fog!!

As mentioned in the OP, the other reason besides server space to reject this is that there is a certain amount of tactical information that can be gleaned from an augmented log. I'd rather see CC work on "dark as night" options which further limit the information that can be seen than this. It's not a strong conviction, but that's the way I would go if it was my choice.

What about a player ?

Postby BENCLUB on Sat Nov 23, 2013 4:01 pm

When a game is close.
We can see what was the differents move of the players.
But it's really difficult and boring to see it in our brain what they are doing.

With a replayer, we could click on "PLAY" and the game restart with the Round 1 : turn 1, turn 2 etc etc
And we could see how the game worked.

Bottom "PAUSE" "STOP" "PLAY" "x3" "x5".

It will be really usefull to learn a map with old games.

PS : Sorry about my english.

I appologize for not reading the whole thread before posting (if what I have to say has already been said.)

Would it make any difference if the game history was saved to the user's computer after each round and then deleted from the server?

I would like to have the game history for learning purposes, but I would like for the history to only be available to those that are in game. I think it would be detrimental to allow general public access to histories that would lead to datamining such as is/was done in online poker.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that in the history of this suggestion someone did promote an exportable feature, and the admin liked that idea briefly. However, more recently, the admin have said that storage concerns would not be an impediment to implementation.

EDIT: Actually, you can see a pretty good summary of the discussion in the OP. In suggestions, you can usually check there first when you come across one of these mondo-threads

This replay concept seems like a potential teaching tool or a means for the victor to revel in the thrill of victory. However, there is an adverse effect. Some elite players have discerned tactical advantages with a certain style of play, they wish to hold on to this advantage and that is why they play fog games. So to allow replay would reveal secrets of tactical prowess and neutralize advantages of superior tactics. Sure one could go through the game log and piece the puzzle together to see what the elite players are doing, but most are too lazy to do this. However the lazy will click a button to watch a replay of the game.

Solution: reject this suggestion. If this suggestion is accepted, then require all parties of a game have option to accept or deny re play of game.

Worse case scenario: two players that have an adversarial relationship play each other, and the winner records the re play of his glorious victory and he downloads the recorded replay to upload to his avatar or profile wall, to then humiliate the loser.

I vote "No" on replay concept. On the grounds of exposing secret battle tactics and the inclination of mankind to abuse a system for self gain, self glory or detriment of another.
