Round Limits

Postby lackattack on Sun Sep 18, 2011 11:46 am

Presenting... Round Limits!

The possile values for this new game option are None, 20 Rounds, 30 Rounds, 50 Rounds or 100 Rounds.

With round limits, the game will automatically finish at the end of the specified round. The winner will be the surviving player with the most troops. If there is a tie, it will be broken based on the most regions. If there is still a tie, the winner is selected based on join order. This option is great for avoiding stalemates on no spoils games and can add some spice to the game as the deadline approaches, forcing the big guys to fight it out and giving the little guys a chance!

Thanks to steelplayin for suggesting this!

Enjoy :mrgreen:

This could make 8 player no spoil games interesting with a 20 round limit.
