Ideas/Questions about Bonuses, LD and Cards: 1/3/2017 11:00:11

Not sure if other people have posted similar ideas before but here's what I had in mind. If you're reading this you should either tell me why these ideas would never work or why they're great.

OVERLAPPING BONUSES IN LOCAL DEPLOYMENTS

First of all, I never understood why there can't be overlapping bonuses in local deployment games, with extra armies received from "superbonuses" acting the same way a reinforcement card would (i.e. you could deploy the troops anywhere) Maybe there's a detail I'm overlooking here, but so far I don't see why this would be an issue. could be fun...

CARDS AWARDED DEPENDING ON BONUSES

This is more of a straight up idea rather an a question. I think it would be cool if a setting could be created that lets you win certain cards depending on what bonus you hold. For example, let's say you're playing on a map where there is a bonus that's supposed to represent an airport. The idea is that only once you hold this bonus, you would be able to receive an airlift card, or pieces of it. If you lose the bonus, you lose the ability Same could go for Bomb Cards and bonuses meant to represent factories or artillery units, or Diplomacy Cards and bonuses meant to represent capitals or government buildings. These are just examples but the possibilities are endless. I feel like this could make for interesting gameplay not only in terms of strategy, but also for enriching narratives in rp/diplo games and the fact that it (in a way) more accurately reflects the physicality of warfare.

Any thoughts on this? I'd love to hear people's opinions.

OVERLAPPING BONUSES IN LOCAL DEPLOYMENTS

Not possible because WarLight wouldn't know where the armies from the superbonus should be deployed or something like that. It's explained in some of the AMAs.

But what I'm saying is that those armies would be added to the "deploy anywhere" section, same as you would if had a reinforcement card. If it comes down to the issue of a bug or a glitch, then it could ultimately be fixed, no? Also could you link me to the AMA you mentioned?

It would pretty much invalidate LD though. Since superbonuses are a collection of smaller bonuses, you could deploy a larger number of armies anywhere inside a much larger portion of a map. That would cause games to finish more quickly, which isn't what LD is about.

I suppose you're right. Nonetheless, I think it could be fun on some maps, such as Rise of Rome, where the superbonuses are such an integral part of the match.

Any thoughts regarding my other idea?
