  1. improve meta data of warlight pages for link sharing

    when you post something like
    https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=23525
    or
    https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=13699729
    on skype, discord or facebook, they grab metadata from the page and show it, but in the case of warlights it's always just "WarLight is a customizable Risk-like strategy game where you compete with your friends to conquer the world.", would be much more interesting if you could include some information on what it actually is, if it's a tournament, the name, the map, the size, the number of seats already filled, and some shortform information on the settings. and in the case of games something similar, listing who created the game,…

    • Display Turn Requirements for Stars

      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.

      • recreate practice game from specific point in history of a finished game

        would be useful to have a way to recreate a game with the settings and distribution of a specific turn of a previously finished game.

        this would be useful for single player puzzle games where you keep having to redo dozens of turns to try something different. and also on multiplayer games for post game analysis and discussion.

        • Option to see all created games with own mod

          As the primary mod creator, I would like to see the games, with my mod cause I am interested in the number of games played with my mod and the settings combination with this Mod. I know it's a low priority, but would be a better idea than causing an error with the game id at the end of the game.

          Thanks

          • Single Player Scenario of the Week

            Just like Map of the week, we could have a weekly contest with 5 player made levels to choose from. The winning scenario would than be advertised in the community levels page for that week!

                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.

                • 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!

                    • Add to a Deploy

                      When I go ahead and deploy a couple armies to attack a territory, I do that. However, when I go back later and want to deploy more to even out all of my borders, some have more deployed than others.

                      I would like you to be able to click a button, and then type in how many more you want to add, instead of clicking a whole bunch of times, or having to add really big numbers, such as 2734 and 3498 then subtract other numbers to see how many more I need.
                      I usually take dynamic turns, instead of…

                      • If you beat an L1 or an L60 5 times it's not reflected anywhere. There should be a weighted average measure as well.

                        • Differentiate between 'No orders received' and 'Orders committed'

                          I have been playing Warlight for almost two weeks now. I like the game, but, being a Diplomacy online player, one particular feature strikes me as very destructive in games and that is the commit system and resulting boots when not committed in time, which ruin games.

                          A lot of the games I played have been hindered by (auto-)boots, because players have not committed orders. I myself have been kicked out of two games too, where I had my orders in place, but was just waiting for a response from a fellow player and hence I did not commit in…

                          • Moving Territories/Switching Connections

                            I am suggesting that in the map editor you could assign territories to switch connections on a rotation of turns (can be edited in the game creator) and/or territories that move altogether in a rotation of turns.

                              The number of army income of a territory would be replaced with a question mark. The number of army income is random and in settings there will be the feature for setting max and min for the number to be generated. Sorry for bad english :)

                              • Limiting the number of real time games

                                Many players don't respect real time games. The reason seems to be that they are playing many games same time and they probably just forget to play one of them. Booting before the first round happens way too often and spoils/ends the whole game immediately which is really annoying for the other players.
                                The number of on-going real time games could be restricted to 1.

                                  • Templates should be shown for finished RT ladder games

                                    The "Recently Finished Games" list on the real-time ladder page gives the links to the games and shows only who played with whom, who won, and the date of the games.

                                    It should also show the template of the game.

                                    If I want to check a game played on a certain template (you know, to see how people play on that particular template), there should be a way to find an exemplary game, other than "click the link to see if it was played on that template - if not, try the next game".

                                      • More players in games

                                        Instead of the maximum amount of people in a game being 40, how about that could be increased to maybe 50 or 60, heck even 70.
                                        This would be good for world maps or maps of Asia so that there could be a slot for every country.

                                          I am a big fan of the Insanely detailed world map and the ability to search the community levels that specifically use that map would make is a lot easier to find them
