It could be done. The hovers would obscure more parts of the map, however. Would the information be more beneficial than obscuring?

Assault from B.C(4) to Alaska (There should be a # of troops here)but there's not now?But when I attack from a different one there is. :-s

EDIT:It also does this when reinforcing troops.



Anyone having this problem?Does anyone have an answer?Andy?


Those numbers are placed by BOB, so you'd have to look there for answers.



Yah but Night Strike it happened as soon as the new feature was introduced.


Right. The scripts are supposed to work with the site as the site is not built to work within the confines of the script. If/once BOB is updated, the issue will go away. The site coding works as it is supposed to, so it's the script that has to be modified.

Ahoy Erv (and others reading),

The hovering function is built in and it cannot be turned off (though you can move your mouse away from the map and the hovers will disappear).

You can, however, disable the 'Bracket Indicators' on your 'Game Settings.' Change the 'Selected Region Indicators' to 'No', and it will hide the indicators on the map.

awesome. now i can even see the numbers inside the former click boxes. thanks

Thanks to king achilles for his message and lack for addressing these concerns. I really appreciate the PM I received and the work you do in general for the site, complaints aside.

Still, I wish there was a way to turn off ALL the new features and restore any of the outstanding lag, but these are minor details now.

I can't help but giggle when I take my turns now. This is fantastic. I'd give you a billion "thank you"s, but then I'd get banned for spamming :( :lol: :P

It defaults to the maximum number of troops you can deploy. In order to change that number, you must use the scroll wheel or the hotkeys. You can find all the hotkeys in the Question Mark drop down by the word Action beneath the map.

Aha! You're one of those guys who keeps the taskbar on the side. What is it with you people? :D

As for the dot, yeah I wonder about that too...

I think it would be. You would get instant information of the territory names, which would be somewhat helpful in some situations... Seeing as the hover boxes only appear when you're on top of an army number, I don't think obscuring the map would be much of a problem.
