TIME SHOULD FREEZE DURING THE ATTACK!



 
Turbulence

YUP!CONSIDER THIS:U WANNA "CLEAR" A PLAYER FROM THE MAP , U TAKE ALL HIS/HERS TERRITORIES (1 ARMIE 2 EACH) EXCEPT HIS/HERS MAIN FORCE WITH - SUPPOSE - YOUR MAIN FORCE , WHICH WAS 200 B4 THE ATTACK.SUPPOSE THAT U PLAY A 30 SEC GAME AND U HAVE 20 SEC 2 "TAKE" YOUR OPPONENTS MAIN FORCE (LAST TERRITORIE).LET'S SAY THE ATTACK IS 185 VS 120.WILL U MAKE IT IN 20 SEC?(CONSIDER THAT SOMETIMES IN SUCH "BATTLES" COMPUTER FREEZES , ATTACK STOPS AND RESTARTS ETC. ETC.)IF U MAKE IT THEN GOOD4U , BUT IF U DON'T AIN'T THIS A BIT UNFAIR?
THAT IS A TYPICAL EXAMPLE AND I REALLY DON'T WANNA ANALYSE THIS ISSUE MORE.I THINK U ALL GET MA POINT

We don't read responses that are in ALL CAPS around these parts. You have to take the time to type it using the "shift key" and such.

I'll add a suggestion emiel. I suggest you allow people to block personal messages from people, so that I don't have to receive personal messages from people like RESPECT saying stupid things through my email. I guess he didn't feel like posting it on here, because of how dumb he sounded saying it. None the less I prefer not to block all personal messages from dominategames, I would rather have the option just to block users.



 
hm19150

For the time being I'll just block all personal messages from dominate games. I guess you will have to say it all on the forum RESPECT. I hope that not everyone will make fun of you.

ENOUGH!OK U R A PRETTY BOY.WE CAN UNDERSTAND THIS JUST BY SEEIN ONCE YOUR PHOTO.NOBODY REFERRED 2 U AND NOBODY ASKED 4 YOUR PERSONAL OPINION.

I can't believe this guy is still going, I think he's attracted to me. I don't swing that way, sorry.

You should get either faster internet or a faster computer and if you don't agree with any of the previous, than you should stop playing 30 sec. games.

I try to avoid 30 sec games anyway because the game does occasionaly freeze for a few seconds (lost some games that way!).

But if you do not watch the time and are too eager and time out on a DO OR DIE attack well then it IS your own fault! Matter of fact I once got a game with just two countries left because my opponent did a 60 on 40 attack with mere seconds left :)

Slightly off topic; it would be good to have a PAUSE feature in the game because in longer games you might want to agree on a pee break ;)

I second ghoti on that onme. I've played 3 or 4 hour games... you really want to be able to pause for a minute during those.

oh! bite the bullet and pee your pants you pussy!

Well , i would really appreciate if u all read carefully what i write.I said i give u A TYPICAL EXAMPLE so that u get an idea of the problem.In other words , because i chose AS AN EXAMPLE a 30 sec. game that DOESN'T mean:

1)That i play 30 sec games (in fact i don't!)and if the problem lied only 2 the time of the game of course i would "fix" it , just by playin longer time games.Do not underestimate my intelligence (Emma).

2)That this problem appears only in 30 sec games and generally under the circumstances of the EXAMPLE.It CAN HAPPEN IN ANY TYPE OF GAME WITH EXACTLY THE SAME RESULTS (UNFAIR DEFEAT OR UNFAIR WIN AS GHOTI'S).

Nobody can define the exact time that an attack "needs" 2 take place.There are several factors that u must consider and these factors are unstable!So , any prediction is impossible , at least with such a "maximum permissible error" ("confidence level" of 99,74% - Does anybody know statistics?) of such an order of magnitude that can "allow" u 2 b sure whether u can make it or not!
In general , since i believe that risk is a game that apart from luck and patience , abilities play a major role , i think losing because of factors like time problems or stuff like that is - at least - not fair.Thus , i think factors like these that affect the game and the game result should b eliminated.

And 4 those who judge so easily other people and other people's opinion let me inform u :

1)My computer is very fast and that has almost nothing 2 do with the problem i am referring 2.

2)I would like 2 get "faster internet" but who will provide it 2 me?Will u Emma?

3)Since this site referrs 2 any type of connection , computer abilities , age and nationality (i really want 2 believe this!) , the rules must b fair and square against everyone and this may b a larger issue than this one.

I only wanted 2 express an opinion.I'm not writing here 2 show my photo or show how smart i am and how nice jokes i know.I can also do all that stuff but not in the suggestions unit!Every activity needs its environment and all places ain't the same.We don't need 2 confuse things.

LOL potass! :D Well it's not always a pee break you know. If I remember right on my 3-hour games it was more getting light-headed and needing something to eat. If you get too light-headed you start making bad decisions.

On another topic, I'd love to see a decent browser, like Opera, develop a feature that automatically converts the case of All Caps to lower or sentence case.

Look, I think you are all missing the point.

Imagine if time did freeze whenever there was an attack.

Personally, I think it would be EXTREMELY cool.

You would all be frozen in time, and I'd be out buying beer, or mowing the lawn or something.

You'd like it too.. just imagine... tell your wife you are gonna hit attack... then you do it. The next thing you know, the fridge is stocked with beer, the house is clean, she has finally done something about her god awful hair, and got a nose job to boot.

Emiel - PLEASE implement time freezing as soon as possible.



 
hm19150

Respect,

Glad to see you found the caps lock button to undo the caps,j/k. Welcome to the wonderful world of playing risk on the internet absolutely free. I can only imagine if we added a pause button. We would get some knucklehead that didn't like the way someone else played and would pause as much as the game would allow, thus causing the game to last as long as humanly possible. So while one may think that a good idea, truly there is a timer for a reason, and every person has the same time limit, so it is fair contrary to what you may think. Adding a pause button won't make it anymore fair, it will just give you the option for a longer game. If you want a longer game, then increase the time for each turn.

Obviously u don't understand or don't want 2 understand or just pretend that u don't understand just 2 make fun , because when i say DURING the attack i don't mean 2 pause the game every time somebody wants 2 go 4 shopping or watch a soccer game etc. etc.I mean when u press do or die and until this action finishes countdown should stop during that particular time interval.That's all!Does someone have 2 b a genius 2 understand this?
If u just focused and try 2 understand what i mean (which is only what i "say" and only this without hidden meanings) instead of noticin if i'm writing in capitals or if i have fast connection or if my wallet is big enough 2 buy new connection or computer etc. etc. , u wouldn't have those metaphysic worries.

Everyone back up, I think he's going to blow!!!



 
hm19150

Lol, you know if you didn't allow yourself to get so defensive this topic would have died a long time ago, and I think you would be a happier person.

 
Infiltratr

Respect,
Why do you continue this arguement? All you have to do is play games with longer time limits. Or did you just need to find something to cry about? Damn.......



 
hm19150

Now I better not see a post of you talking rudely to the lady Respect. Just consider yourself put in your place. Well said Infil!

Man hm19150..

You remind me of some gay guy i'd see going to church every sunday the way you type.. WHO CARES IF YOU WRITE IN CAPITAL LETTERSS. Just get the discussion resolved and shut ur face. Oh please do tell me "Everyone back up, I think he's going to blow!!!" What are you five?

The bottom line is that there will never be stopped time during an attack. Its not needed. You are suppose to take this in consideration. Its reffered to as a STRATEGY. This is something that most that play here lack. I think that most of you will agree. I am by no means knocking anyone that has replied or the poster of this tangent. I think we covered that...

NEXT!!!
