A New "Dice" System

Postby D00MandD3A7H on Sun Jan 29, 2012 10:04 pm

Concise description:

An option of "dice"(not a dice anymore) that are fixed.

Specifics/Details:

Like playing checkers or chess?
When attacking, the armies from both sides are lost at a constant and even rate.
Example: 10 armies against 5 = 5 left. The player can then attack again another 5 and both armies will stand at 1 each.


How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
A new type of strategy in the maps and games. No one can complain about the dice being random or favoring other players.

Eh, don't think this is worth pursuing. I wouldn't want to play this type of game. The dice are part of the game. Don't like it? Find another game. There are countless other suggestions I'd rather see implemented.

I find that an interesting statement. If it has been brought up so very many times... why isn't it going to happen? That seems counter intuitive. Usually, the more a request is brought up the more likely it is to happen.

i find it amusingly ironic how a suggestion to eliminate luck actually manages to make the games 100% luck.

in a no spoils no dice game where the person that starts the game gets a bonus from the drop, the second guy has no chance to come back and win.
game over from the start. so much about "stratagy" :lol:

Well, what if there was another game option. This option would allow little to no luck to be in the game. This new option would include the following

-no dice
-colorless cards


Does anybody hate it when you bring up a topic that we've already seen and proven that it didn't work?
Does anybody hate it when the "new option" just turns it back into a purely luck game based on drops, player-owned cards, and who goes first?

Well, what if there was an opinion about this?

This "stratagy" would include the following

-Not Implementing This (Ever)

Back to the drawing board.

Let's have a completely penis based game. Whoever has the largest penis will win. Girls can use dildos if they want to,or they can borrow their significant others.

We can implement it at the same time.

I play freestlyle mainly - therefore your first argument is invalid.

What would i have to complain about when losing a no-dice game except for that first point?

Actually, my argument is perfectly valid. It just does not apply to your situation.

This setting would be absolutely useless for sequential (and most freestyle) games. Really the best use of this game type would be speed freestyle, and since this site only has ONE developer I really doubt he'll focus on something so specific to a small amount of the community at this time.

What maps / settings would have an unbreakable tie?


Farming: Actually, I have to think about this one. It could generally be done, but high ranked players would be at risk against and equally talented but low ranked team, if that team went first.

Unbreakable ties. Think of a simple CC map where all territs are able to be attacked (no neutral barriers) and where there are no easily taken bonuses. Let's say that map has a 14 territ per player drop. Let's further simplify this and say there would be only one front (but the analysis is the same with 2 or 3, it just gets more complicated to type out). Picture it almost like the players are playing in a straight line.

Game Starts:

R3 - R3 - R3 - G3 - G3 - G3

Red's turn: Deploy

R3 - R3 - R7 - G3 - G3 - G3

Red attacks:

R3 - R3 - R1 - R3 - G3 - G3

Red Forts:

R1 - R3 - R1 - R5 - G3 - G3

Green (13 territs) drops:

R1 - R3 - R1 - R5 - G7 - G3

Green attacks

R1 - R3 - R1 - G1 - G1 - G3

Green Forts

R1 - R3 - R1 - G3 - G1 - G1

Red (14 territs) drops:

R1 - R3 - R5 - G3 - G1 - G1

Red attacks:

R1 - R3 - R1 - R1 - G1 - G1

Red forts:

R1 - R1 - R1 - R3 - G1 - G1

Green (13 territs) deploys:

R1 - R1 - R1 - R3 - G5 - G1

Green attacks:

R1 - R1 - R1 - G1 - G1 - G1

ad nauseum. Basically as long as you don't attack any neutrals and no bonuses are taken, both teams have exactly the same amount of troops at the end of any given round (after both players have gone). How many drops do you think you can take and hold a bonus when your opponent is getting the exact same troops and dice as you and you're playing a map that allows you both to drop 4 in the first turn. Or a map that allows you to drop 3.

Then there's the problem of maps with 15 starting territs. The player that goes first would certainly be able to send the other player to 14 territs, which means that the starting player would get +1 relative bonus each turn for the first several turns until he could knock the player down to 12 and have a +2 relative bonus. Then the other player would be down to 11 territs and the first turn guy would get +3 relative bonus. The first turn would end the game unless you play against someone dumb who goes after neutrals or is otherwise crazy.

If no one can overcome this problem, then this should be rejected, IMO.

L.O.L.

Thanks to the above post from 2008, I have discovered that fruitcake has performed the amazing feat of having a suggestion in Submitted Suggestions AND an identical suggestion in Rejected Suggestions.

I plan on moving this version over to Rejected when I get a chance to search for and merge all this stuff together. Reading back through this thread, there isn't even that much support for this suggestion.

I think this can be modified, preserving the positive original intention (decrease the luck factor from games), but avoiding the obvious flaws (stagnated dull games, as pointed out for agentcom).

Add the option of "City of Mogul" troops scale. so instead of starting with 3 troops, people start with 30, receving very few troops due to territories, but modifying the bonus accordingly.

So for instance, in classic map, instead of receiving 2 for Australia/south america, you receive 20. It has been proved that at large scale the streakness of the dice is less dramatic, but still preserves the "luck" inherent to our beloved game.
