Again, just because people do not see eye to eye with you, doesn't make them douchebags, idiots, petty, petulant, or mean that they have misconceptions. I have a different idea about this should be implemented and you didn't even address it. Instead of brushing me aside by diatribing and attempting to say that I am only trying to fight with you, try addressing my ideas. I shouldn't have to go on a allocution about proper forum discussion for you to recognize that differences in ideas aren't attempts at fighting. See the Unique Map Ribbon thread for an example. There are a few of us there that have different ideas about how it should be done. The reason for this is so that we can flesh out every possible scenario about what might happen, about what is the best for the site, about why people might be drawn to certain ideas or aspects of this idea. We need to go through all of that so that we can present an idea in its best form to the site admin. If you want to see this "great idea" implemented, then you can simply disregard differing opinions.
Now, moving forward, please know that I have nothing against you. I am not trying to bait you, flame you, or otherwise have this thread get off topic or out of hand. I'm trying to discuss the different possibilities various ways that this idea might be implemented. Keep in mind that just because we come up with an idea that we think is best, it may not be able to implemented that way. We need to discuss all options.
While you may be trying to say 1 thing now your various posts have said something else you have become caught up on the exception rather then the rule and yes your initial point of conflict in this conversation came off very douchey as to the idiot petulant and mean parts those are all freudian projections of your own guilty conscience.
I addressed your concern and to me it seems like a frivolent nonissue that is overreaction that you are overtly stressing without fully thinking out. My idea in its simplest form allows for a vast variety of gameplay and with out over complicating it is a simpleidea that as has been pointed out will require exclusion on some maps.
In the same vein of thought on fleshing things out like I saw in other threads the implmentation for each idea is one that the sites esteemed admin and coders deems worthy or not and figures out how to best integrate into the overall CC experience. Different maps have different specifications for a win and limitations on gameplay this feature would be yet another that could change gameplay dynamics.
A maximum would be the default already associated with the map while a minimum should be one. One is important as a minimum for many reasons most important being that the less complicated the and more universal the system for choosing the amount of starting territs the easier it should be to implement. Again all features do not work with all settings like assasin does not work for 2 player games as it is pointless.
I say exclude the ones it is not feasible on and this is not a huge intellectual leap given that already occurs with the popular feature of manual. There is no conflict or arguing both sides it is really quite simple and you either get what I am saying from the examples or do not. If you disagree with the Idea that is your perogative go throw your support behind another one.
Again this is nothing personal and I am only stating how I perceive your posts and concerns on this topic, I do strongly feel that your energy would be better served trying to understand the general concept of what has already been stated and how it already addresses what you have asked about instead of getting caught up with a small misperception like the luxemburg doodle 1 territ difference concern.
