Commander+0 armies standing: Highlight settings!: 9/11/2016 18:22:18

Dear Fizzer

Due to your big advertisement of the commanders on the seasonal ladder and the 0 armies standing setting that needs to be switched on whenever commanders are allowed, i find myself in an easy fixable problem.

When i join an open game, it recently happens quite often, that i oversee commanders when i check that game's settings. This makes me really sad and disappoints me, cause i don't want to play with the commanders. But if i could highlight commanders settings as well as the 0 armies standing settings i would be able to see if these settings are switched on on a first glance and i wouldn't lose as many games right after picks.

Gratefully

or we could just get rid of commanders, since no one really likes them.

well, they are quite useful in diplo games. Also, they do add an interesting twist to game play if done correctly.

Commanders are pretty cool. You can change highlight settings though I thought.

You can't. It seems like no work to change this tough and it is really annoying if i join a game or tournament and realize it is commanders afterwards cause it's really easy to oversee.

I have no problem with commander. It's fresh blood in game settings and strategically quite interesting. Maybe we need more times to understand how to play this.

Of course I wouldn't find commanders everywhere, but 10% of the time sounds pretty good to me.

But I agree this should be good to be able to highlighted that. This is a big info.

"Surrenders must be accepted" also needs to be highlighted. It drives me nuts when I surrender but it doesn't get accepted and now I have to keep playing or get booted.

the biggest gripe I have with commanders is the same I've been voicing since they got introduced.
they are not customizable..

with a game that prides itself on host customization, why have an option that is set at 7?
I can make my starting income 0-1000 easily... I can make each bonus the same.. so why is commanders set at 7? It makes it so that if I want super powerful commanders, instead of making *super powerful commanders* I have to change the entire game around to use small numbers; and If I want really weak commanders, I have to change the whole game around to have huge numbers.
It seems to me like Fizzer thought he liked the idea of commanders in certain game modes, but was just like *nah.. people need to play it the way I want them to play it, or bollocks to them* which is quite contrary to the way warlight's design was in the past.


btw, to the OP.. why can't you just avoid games that have the commander Icon?

*the 2nd icon.. it didn't save my cursor -_-*

You can hide games with commander's with Muli's userscript.

Commanders are always shown with the commander icon underneath the game.

This is the same as multi-attack icons, pure skill icons, etc. that are shown under games. If you don't want to accidentally join a game with commanders, look there before even clicking on the game link!

Look at Rouxburg's advice.

If you're using Muli's userscript, at the top right of the open games menu, there's a downward pointing arrow. Clicking on that will allow you to modify what types of games you want to filter. Games with Commanders can be hidden so that you won't accidentally join them.

I feel like the highlight settings options generally need a revamp, there is this and a few other options that are not highlighted either, such as armies per territory. I hope Fizzer is considering updating this whole system, since it is really helpful.
