i am fine with the double bonus armies for missed turns. I and many others here have very busy schedules when it comes to school and homework. many of us dont get our turns in because we:
1. were sick/asleep
2. had too much homework
3. too much school
4 too much after school activities
5. bad memory
6. internet being down for days at a time.
(all of those are my problems sometimes, and im sure it applies to many others here as well)
and besides, turn skipping is generally used as a strategy only in no card games. this is because skipping a turn wont cause you to not get a card. if you dont like turn skipping, dont play no card games. i have never had a problem with people skipping turns because i play flat rate and escalating only.
and also, in those really long games that go on for weeks at a time, missing 3 turns is not uncommon for people with busy schedules. people in long games would start beign kicked out left and right if it was 3 turns missed=kicked from the game.
i think that it should switch to 2 turns in a row=kicked out, but i dont like having a rule that 3 turns missed anytime would mean getting kicked out of a game you couldnt help missing a turn or two in.
