This has been suggested before. I like the idea, but you have to get it to where it won't take so long to start the game.

I could see having this feature either for speed games only, or as a premium perk (not necessarily because of the exclusivity of it, but to keep free members from getting stuck in these type of games).

That being said, I feel CC could do with more perks for premium members.

This. I'll try to find the other suggestion to merge with this.

Though perhaps not the solution, it may be possible to develop a permission system based on medal acheivement... by which players unlock the ability to start and play in territory draft games... as though it would not be a feature that would be availible to newbs.

Limiting (shortening) the time allowed to select a teritory also makes sense, with the consequnece of missing a turn being a randomly selected tert.

I am very much in favor of something like this... However it's probably a whole new suggestion and may take a bit of work. I'm also sure there are some who will say that since they pay, they should get access to everything automatically...

Well, even paying players don't get access to certain ranks until they have played enough games... this (paying players objecting to not having instant access to the feature) is not a strong arguement against the idea.

I summarized in the OP the points against it, but I'm actually for this. I think it should be premium only and one of the things that new recruits can't join. (Or if we put in some sort of escalating "unlocking" of features, this should be somewhere on the scale.) I see no problem even with hive if that's what a user truly wants to play.

Great! What is the process of integrating this feature into the system architecture?

While I think this is feasible, I don't think it is a good game setting. I played with Draft exclusively for many years, it's not nearly as rich of a game as random draw.

Ah, so you are arguing that this new feature would not expand the wealth that is CC? This is the best arguement against the feature, in my opinion.

While your experience suggests you are probably right, said experience also makes you the best person to expound on the virtues of territory draft. What WAS present in Territory Draft games that is not present in random draw games?

There seems to me, as a person of imagination, that in manual draft games a certain mythologization of the game can form that is otherwise lacking or at least less significant in random draw... the selection of favorite territories, and concssions thereof for purposes of forced blocking, etcetera, are interesting aspects of the game that are completely unexploited with only random draw availible.

I can see how manual draft may soon lose appeal, when everyone is gunning for the same territories with the same strategy, but with CC's wealth of maps, the feature may remain interesting indefinitley.

What about the exponential increased potential for farming?

Well, on the super complicated maps, most players don't even know what the bonuses are. A top player could make a lot of these draft games, and by using his knowledge of the map, start with a massive bonus right off the bat. The other player wouldn't even have a chance.
