Re: don't advance button

Actually this option exist on clickable maps, instead of clicking on the territory you want to advance to, you just have to click on the assaulting territory and it advances 0 troops...

Yes, but is the "it's already possible with plugins" really a good reason for not implementing something on the site?

I would use this constantly, so this gets my full support.

If an earlier post about "hitting 0" works, then why has nobody ever mentioned it before?

Advance Zero armies button

Postby Scorba on Sun Oct 07, 2012 3:22 am

Concise description:
  • Advance Zero armies button

Specifics/Details:
  • I want an advance 0 armies button! Generally speaking, you will for the most part advance all your armies or none at all. Why force players to pull down the menu and scroll up to zero, when this could be done with a single press? It will also save vital time in speed games.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Less time spent pulling down and scrolling through tedious menu's and more time killing opponents!
Taking an enemy on the battlefield is like a hawk taking a bird. Though it enters into the midst of a thousand of them, it pays no attention to any bird other than the one it has first marked.

A single button , clutter?! What are you talking about?

Only people with the attention span of a goldfish would be distracted by such a button.

If you're using clickable maps you right-click on the region you just attacked from and it advances 0 (I use the add-on, I'm not sure about site-integrated clickies). Otherwise click on the drop-down list and type 0. Unless you're using a browser designed in the 1800s, it should change to 0.

yes clutter, as more of us migrate to small screens there is not enough screen space for buttons to help every lazy player save a fraction of a second

The site-integrated clickies also allow you to advance 0 armies when you click on the region you just successfully attacked. This doesn't seem to have any advantage for the site.

I only use the drop downs. I actually would like to see an advance all, advance none, and the drop down, that'd be really nice.

With the site clickable maps you can advance all or none depending on the side of the mouse you click.

As was said in another suggestion by thehippo, I don't think CC is going to place a button/link for every player that wants to avoid 2 clicks. Yes, it is annoying to have to make 2 clicks when a button could do it in one, but it also clutters up the screen for the players who more often either advance all or advance more than 0 but less than all.

I'm not sure I see the need for this extra button.

I think the need lies in trying to create a friendlier interface for phone and tablet users. The real solution to that would be to create a mobile app/interface for those who play on those devices. However, this would be a convenient stop-gap.
