I mean, you start last (that unlucky, but that happens, random..) but before it's your turn the first 4 or 5 has removed all your territories...
Total, you sit in, you loose points and you didn't play.

Something should be done about that if it happens. And You really can't blame the person of who it happens to for anything other than wanting to play the game.

yeah but the way the rankings work.. the points gained by the top 3 come directly from those that came in 7th, 6th, 5th, etc

so if you dont have someone losing -50 points for coming in last, then the winners cant gain +48, or +32, etc for finishing top3.

would mess w/ the elo system and ryan would have to spends hours coding.

bad luck happens, if you don't like that then dont place with dice =P

(ive had 2 games where I never even had a 1st turn... literally was knocked out before I got one move - so I understand your point, but still, it's the way it is, leave it)

i agree. i just played 3 games, did faily well increased my score bit by bit. then in the fourth game out on first round lost all i had gained in previous games. frustrating, and turns me off of the game. which is unfortunate, because other than the scoring, this is one of the best, most addictive games around.

Sucks to be you ommlvp. It also sucks to be me, jdizzle, ryan, thegrid, funk4g, Dutch-1 and everyone else who has ever played this game, ever. And it sucks about equally. The scoring measure how well you can deal with how much it sucks to be you.

I think this is a good idea though because lots of people want it, but it'd likely have to punish the other players to implement.

Wouldn't people just wait to do it then?

"Wouldn't people just wait to do it then?"

Aye, it's a feel good thing. As opposed to:
"I died before my turn! Fuck you all, asshats, I'm making two ideas and a forum topic about this!"
You get:
"I died before my second turn! That's not really playing, so I shouldn't be punished! Fuck you all, asshats, I'm making -three- ideas and a forum topic about this!"

And that is the sort of improvement we need Ryan to be working on.
