Local Deployment suggestion: 11/30/2016 21:52:25

So lately I was in some got rp and we figured the template could get way awesome if only we could have had local deployment without killing the various super bonuses, and I had an idea that template creators can apply local deployment to specific bonuses and make others distributable anywhere, rather than to all-or-nothing.

(copied from the uservoice description below)


So we have this cool thing called local deployments, we also have a lot of cool maps with overlapping bonuses.

Unfortunately, the two can only come together by turning a lot of the maps' bonuses to 0, so there are no overlapping ones.

So my proposal is thus:
Allow template creators to set specific bonuses as locally deployed, and others to contribute to the general pool, and that way overlapping bonuses can exist, with each territory only being allowed to be part of on locally deployed bonus.

For example, You have Bonus A, which consists of Territories 1 to 4 and is worth 5 armies, we also have bonus B, which consists of territories 1 to 12 and is worth 20 armies.
The host can set Bonus A to be local and B to be general.
If a player controls both and has no other income sources, he will have 20 armies he can distribute anywhere and 5 armies to put in territories 1,2,3,4.

Obviously, negative bonuses are only allowed as general pool.


*cough* is advertising uservoice ideas like...a thing? was I supposed to put this in another forum?

Anyway, would appreciate a comment and/or a vote on my suggestion, constructive criticism is much welcome.

To sum up: A mix of local and normal deployment of armies. It certainly would offer a new angle to game-play. Secondly I think those may be much more popular than regular LD-games. The only criticism I can find is how complicated would it be to implement it and what is Fizzers initiative to see it done? Other than that, I would be interested in such feature.

If there is enough support and it would not be too complicated to code Fizzer may find it useful feature to motivate older players playing more. Also it could be members-only-feature to promote membership. Great idea, will vote in uservoice.

I would rather see local bonuses regardless if they overlap or not. General bonuses can be generated by Extra armies for territories option (I know it is not the same).

LD has a lot of potential to make really great games but it needs some urgent improvements like this idea and also this one:

Awesome, thanks! :D

agreed on the other idea, that one has 3 votes from me from when I searched if someone suggested my thing already.



Also it could be members-only-feature to promote membership.

Definitely, I think bonus specific LD and normal LD should be unlocked separately,


Thank you all for the support and votes!

well I personally would buy membership* if these settings were membership only, it's definitely a better deal than paying 100$ for a color.

* = that is when PayPal reopens or Fizzer implements other ways to buy because it's closed on my country.
