  1. Diplomacy mode

    A great thing would be a Diplomacy mode added to FFA and Teams. This would enable people to add others to temporary teams when forming alliances and to make it so that you can airlift an ally, transfer to an ally and have to wait for at least 1 turn after disbanding an alliance to attack them. This would be good for hosts in diplos to control the amount of allies people are allowed to have. Declaring war on someone could be something official by clicking on their name and then clicking "Declare war". This would allow everyone in the…

    • More Purchasable Colors

      More special colors added into the game would be cool. See, I would like to purchase a special color only my friend is getting Tyrian purple, Mardi Gras looks exactly like Electric purple, Royal Blue is strongly similar to Light blue and smoky black is way too expensive

      Maybe if you added stuff like Jade Green, etc for 14$. up to 8 special colors would be great so that competitive players can all get their own individual colors that few people have. Also Silver and Gold would be nice for 20/30$. Like really rich, sparkly colors.

      • Leave a territory

        It would be great if you implemented a system that would enable you to leave 0 armies behind in a territory and make the territory no longer belong to you/ This is realistic as when you have no troops in a territory, it is no longer yours. This would be great for the chess 1v1 map as well as the Sudoku 1v1 and several other strategic maps that are different to your typical warlight games.

        • Quests, events, sharing and editing

          Quests: can be enabled by getting a quest card that tells you to take a special territory to later gain more armies, you customize the special territories that can be chosen for the cards yourself.

          Events: can be for example that your troops get stuck on a territory so that they can´t be moved for a certain amount of turns or that a percenatge of them gets stuck.

          Editing: To be able to edit incomes of territories during a game and to add armies to them if all players can see the editing and agrees to it any player can…

          • Monthly resets of the viral achievement

            Pretty self-explanatory. This wouldn't invalidate older viral achievements, just make new ones that would say something like "Viral Achievement: 2017 Jul". The players starting with the virus would be the top 8 people of all the official ladders (so best player in 1v1 ladder, seasonal, and realtime, best teams in 2v2 and 3v3. All the people in the #1 spot, in other words.). Also, perhaps the leader in coin revenue could also start with the viral achievement.

            Other possible features that would go nicely with this, but are probably harder to code, so they're not absolutely needed:

            • Match notes for a specific game

              It would be helpful to be able to keep notes on a specific match being played out, especially for multi-day games.

              I believe this could be easily and quickly accomplished by allowing players to send private notes to themselves.

              What do you think, Fizzer?

              • Improvement of Game Query API

                Currently, the only bonus information shown is ID, Name, Value, and Territory ID's, but Color is not shown. Bonus colors should be available in the API.
                Territory center points are also not found anywhere in the API. It would be nice to have those accessible as well.

                Thanks!

                • Increasing time for real time games

                  Multiplayer games with added boot time can be a pain if a player leaves prior to taking the opening move. Everyone sits and waits 10 minutes for them to be booted. Why not have a setting which either removes banked time for turn 1 AND/OR has a shorter clock for say turns 1-5 and then full time limit thereafter. It would get of any no-shows quickly and get the game off to a good start.

                    I love this page : https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/OpenGames

                    I always want to see all the open games.

                    I don't like scrolling to see the Open Games on the dashboard.

                    Please add a link under Multi-Player between Dashboard and Past Games

                    • Warlight Generals

                      Like commanders, Generals are a single unit representing non-decreasing armies. However, there are a few differences:

                      1. The General would be obtained by card piece. The player would then select the territory where the general would be placed. This would make a game interesting, as this can make or break a game.

                      2. The General would represent a customizable amount of armies. It could be 5, 7, or another amount of armies.

                      3. If the General is eliminated, the game would continue, so losing players would not play on in a losing position knowing they can win simply by killing…

                      • Enable lower amounts of Coins being withdrawn in the last months of Coins as a gamble mechanism

                        Related: https://www.warlight.net/blog/index.php/2017/08/ending-coin-withdrawals/

                        As user "Tim" mentioned: amounts lower than 7500 coins cannot be withdrawn currently as per WarLight's coin withdrawal rules.

                        While this was fine for most of WL's life, right now this is quite bad. Someone who has accumulated a good value but lower than 7500 due to spending/partially withdrawing will have permanently lost a pretty steep amount of money due to the withdrawal limitation.

                        The suggestion: Lower the withdrawal amount to be something pretty small, such as 500 coins. Very rarely do people who did not actually invest in Coins get to that number (they'd have to quintuple…

                          • Aid Card

                            An "Aid Card" could function identically to a "reverse" Sanctions Card, in that it multiplies income rather than divides it.

                            The reason for having it as a separate card however, would be so that one can have both sanctions and "reverse sanctions" in the same game. Additionally, it could be given unique functionality in that one can only use it on others. (Being able to use it on oneself could also be toggle-able like so many other features).

                            I think a card like this would have enormous appeal in 'Diplomacy' games, where a player might want to help an ally…

                                    In single player, make it easier to figure out how many turns you need to make it under to get stars. I've looked all over for a definitive number on each level. I've seen examples of players getting stars on every level, but it would be much better to know what goal number of turns I should set myself to get those stars.

                                    • Offline Multiplayer Mode (for small local groups of friends)

                                      Idea suggestion: add an offline multiplayer mode. It would work like this. You set the number of players and the map just like normal, but the host can assign names for each player. Gameplay works like normal, but as soon as you commit your orders, another button appears called "Hand to next player" and you press it after you commit your orders. Pressing it displays the map from a neutral (fogged) perspective so that no one sees the armies of other players. It then displays a list of all the players who haven't committed orders for that turn. You tap…

                                        It's a pain to have to discover players who many others have already blocked.

                                        This might be easily remedied by adding a toggle in game settings where players who have been blocked by X or more other players are banned from joining this specific game.

                                        • Stick notes

                                          Usually in games with manual distribution (ladders mostly) we chose territories and get them together with intell of the map - where is your enemy, where are wastelands. But to see it during the game you have to scroll that information back in history. I'd say try to add sticknotes so people could add them to a territory with a test next to it like "enemy" or "wasteland". Would make the game simplier and make you not forget that there is a wasteland in a bonus you want to enter or enemy nearby so you should send there more armies.…
