Getting a hundred people to participate in a forum poll, even if it's just one simple click, is actually a lot.

And giving the huge lopsided result is clear evidence. It would be a lot worse if it was 60/40 or something.

Pirlo wrote:During April Challenge, I started a couple or more 1v1 Soviet Union games where opponents joined and went first playing right away without letting me see the initial drop. It gave them early bonuses of which I was unaware. That cost me few defeats in a Challenge requiring a 60% win ratio, so I just skipped that Challenge and couldn't be bothered.


I had 500 Soviet games in April. I think I started them all, or close to!

For as many times as I started the game immediately, I had an opponent who started the game immediately.

So it "evens out" as they say in regards to the shitty dice phenomenon.

It just depends on who "randomly" goes first.

Terminology such as "evens out" should never be used in a skills game! In fact, it can ONLY be used when skills are not required, and the outcome has more to do with chance. How do you "even out" your skills? Just looking at the terminology used on cc indicates problems!

Oh there's actually people voting "no"! :o
I can totally see that this would be great. I wasn't aware the waiting time was 12 hours, but generally try and give my opponent as long as possible. What this would save is having to go through all the games to see if any new ones have begun and take snaps.
As for increase storage, isn't that part of the membership charges? If many players are already doing this, what's the additional?

That's pretty overwhelming support for a change that will fix a consistent point of contention in game play for years. Nice addition.

There is nothing homophobic, or even remotely homosexual in nature about the widely used saying "butt-hurt".

I'm all for it. I don't snap and I need to take my turns when I log on or risk not being able to make it back in 24 hours. This has bothered a few people who all assume I know the rule (I'd seen some things about snaps before but never bothered to ask because I didn't care, and I've been playing for years.)

I hate unwritten rules. So if a snap is required at the beginning of fog games, make the technology do it. Otherwise, people should start assuming I'm being a "doosh" because I take my turns when I can. Sometimes I can log on 10 times a day. Sometimes, I barely make it back within 24 hours. So WTF should I wait?

Thank you for considering this option, even from those of us who haven't had a need for it.

Until this gets fixed, the sporting thing to do is tell your opponent in chat what they would have seen if they had been able to get a snap. You can also ask for the same if they take a turn before you get a snap. It's not required, but it's good sportsmanship to do so. Even if it has been 20 hours, if an opponent tells me they didn't get a snap, I'll tell them everything they missed.

None of the other snappers are even needed. After the first move, you can leave yourself notes, ergo snappers not needed.

It actually made ZERO sense to not have it snap the drop, unless of course the coding was too challenging and they simply didn't have the knowledge base to do so originally.

are your notes working ? doesn't seem to

None of the other snappers are even needed. After the first move, you can leave yourself notes, ergo snappers not needed.

It actually made ZERO sense to not have it snap the drop, unless of course the coding was too challenging and they simply didn't have the knowledge base to do so originally.

are your notes working ? doesn't seem to


306 wins out of 500 Soviet Union games during the April monthly challenge.

That was good for over 60% win ratio to get onto the scoreboard!

Generally I have less than 60% win ratio.

So I would answer, YES! My notes do seem to be working!

A picture isn't worth jack shee-it when you don't get a picture of the drop!!!!!!!!!!
