However, moving the game data to the top I really don't like at this point. I guess I'm just so used to having it at the bottom that its hard to get used to. It does take extra scrolling.

Don't know why it gets changed, guess some people thought it would be better, but shouldn't these things either be able to be changed by the individual or if not at least voted on. Some people may make this suggestion but that does not mean that the majority are in favor of it. Just seems like something has been changed that has worked out fine.

Is there a way to create something in the game settings so each person can decide to put it on the top or bottom? This should stop all the complaints.


What he said.

It's a great update, love having the statistics and a new game element, but I can't figure out why the game data was moved to the top - before it was there for me to see, now I have to scroll every time. Sorry, but at least give us the option to have it on the bottom? Thanks for listening!

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I intended to address previous concerns about the game layout, but it seems like the extra tweaks I threw in didn't go over well. In 3 weeks I will start another feedback topic with mockups to vote on (and I will stick to the mockups when making the next update :-) )

I don't know... I don't think there is a bug, but you can post the details in the Question & Answers forum and someone will help you make sense of it.

No, the site gives you a one way plane ticket to Iran, where you get to tell mr Ahmydinnerdad how evil you were in the west with nukes.

Well there aren't medals for any of the other card types so I wouldn't anticipate that too much.

Looking forward to trying the nuke spoils.

The game info and spoils at the top is TERRIBLE. The only thing worse would be a link to another page to get the info. Please change it back.

Would I be the only player who might like the nuke text to be a little more useful?

When you trade in a cardset (non nuke) and you own the territ it shows up similar to the following:

2009-12-29 11:28:22 - potiusmori cashed in a group of Ireland, Sofia, and Mediterannean Sea worth 45 troops
2009-12-29 11:28:22 - potiusmori got bonus of 2 troops added to Ireland


however, when a Nuke set is turned in all we receive is a one-line statement (as follows):

2009-12-29 00:02:38 - potiusmori received 3 troops for 6 regions
2009-12-29 00:02:43 - potiusmori cashed in a group of I Nox, D IV, and A Luna nuking each region
2009-12-29 00:02:52 - potiusmori deployed 3 troops on L Ostia


I'd like something set up similarly to the "bonus of 2 troops added..." line that states that X territory was nuked and reverted to neutral. Preferably (if sensible wording can be attained) indicating who lost the territory.

i.e.

2009-12-29 00:02:38 - potiusmori received 3 troops for 6 regions
2009-12-29 00:02:43 - potiusmori cashed in a group of I Nox, D IV, and A Luna nuking each region
2009-12-29 00:02:43 - PlayerX lost I Nox to neutral player
2009-12-29 00:02:43 - Neutral Player lost D IV to neutral player
2009-12-29 00:02:43 - potiusmori lost A Luna to neutral player


I find it less informative when reveiwing a game log to only see the single-line statement regarding the nuked territories. it doesn't much tell if a nuke hit the player himself or another player, or simply hit a neutral.

I am loving Nukes, there is definitely skill involved.
A question about the mechanics of the spoils cards.

Are they shuffled and all used up as spoils before being reshuffled, ie if South Africa has been Nuked is it safe to leave troupes on South Africa until all the countries have been Nuked.

OR as I suspect

Are spoil cards just chosen at random, so that one territory can be Nuked an infinite amount of times compared to another territory.

If this is so, is it possible that two players have the same spoil territory card simultaneously?

I am not complaining, all of the above systems are good, but I would like to know which is being used so that I can adjust my strategy accordingly.

Right now, Conquer Club does not use a traditional "deck of spoils" --- So when one spoil is used, it may come up again in no time.

I may have missed the response, but I mentioned earlier that the game stats now tell more information than the log in fog/nuc games in the territory colum. you can't tell who lost terrs by a cash in nuc games by the log, but it is taken into account in the statistics.

Adding armies to opponents on spoil trade ins.

Postby Luke035 on Thu Jan 07, 2010 9:42 am

Frequent Lurker, infrequent poster. . .

If this has already been suggested, I apologize; I haven't had an opportunity to read through this entire thread or browse the others. With the advent of nukes and the additional strategy choices involved when you may be forced to nuke yourself when you turn in a set of spoils -- I thought it might make for interesting game play on the flip side of the coin if the "flat rate" or "escalating" spoils games had variations where ALL territories of turned in spoils got a two army deployment - even those territories held by other players not turning in the spoils. So in turning in spoils to get your bonus, you may be forced to give your opponents (or a neutral territory) an extra two armies here or there.

It may not be as dramatic as being forced to nuke yourself and it may just be a bad idea in general when it is all said and done by giving TOO MANY game variation options. Just a passing thought I had. :roll:
