  1. Able to see who is online

    I never know who is online until they join my game. It would be nice to see who is online so you can invite them to a game right away instead of waiting for random people to join.

      Hi all,

      We agree this is a great idea. It would be awesome if the game can show you who is online and let you just click on them to invite them to a game or chat. This is certainly something we’d like to add some day, but it’s not on our immediate roadmap.

        Hi all,

        We would certainly like WarLight to run on all phones. However, making an app for a phone is a huge amount of work (the iOS and Android version took over 2 years). We have to weigh the amount of work against the benefit, and right now it’s not sufficient to warrant devoting so much time to the Windows Phone.

        We will keep this item open and continue to re-evaluate in the future to see if the landscape changes. Thanks for the suggestion.

          Teammates leaving a game is certainly frustrating. Allowing another teammate to enter orders for them is definitely a possible way to address that problem.

          We could use some feedback on the following potential issues with this feature:

          1. In teams of more than 2 players, who gets control of a player that’s left? Just first to click the button, or assign a team captain or something?
          2. Could this slow down real time games? Imagine if one person has to enter orders for 3 teammates that have left plus themselves.
          3. Would this encourage someone to boot their teammates, just to take control over them?
          4. It needs to be very clear who is playing who for every turn. If someone that’s under control starts sabotaging their team, like gifting stuff to an enemy or attacking teammates, it needs to be clear it isn’t really them and you shouldn’t necessarily…

        • Add a "friends list" subset to the invite list

          After playing many games here, the invite list gets cumbersome. It would be nice to have a smaller list for people I really enjoyed playing with.

          • Overhall of Clan System

            Make clans more fun!

            1. Allow name changes.
            2. Have clan levels. Based on the same things as normal levels, but maybe times them by ten or something? Make it one coin for level one, 1+2 coins to level two (and so on) for the founder, and some other kind of reward for the average member.
            3. Allow splits of manager rights:

            FOUNDER LEVEL

            For the founder only, cannot be booted. Can do everything that current people can do, and cannot be booted ever, by anyone.

            STANDARD LEVEL

            Same as current manager rights.

            RECRUITMENT LEVEL

            Can only recruit and change…

              Hi all,

              Thanks for the suggestion. Clan manager tiers is certainly something we’d like to add some day, but it’s not on our immediate roadmap.

              Clan name changes will probably never be allowed, as the clan’s name is its identity and changing the name is akin to making a new clan entirely.

            • Vacations by number of days instead of number of vacations

              In the current system, a maximum of 5 vacations are allowed; whilst this is, of course, better than none - it DOES lead to unfairness and difficulties.
              For example, under the current system one person could get 50 days of vacation (using the maximum) whereas another (using the minimum lengths) could only get 5. Furthermore, if someone is away often for say, 3 days, they are at a disadvantage compared to someone who is away rarely but for a while.

              So, I propose the following: instead of a maximum NUMBER of vacations, I propose a cap on the number of…

                I agree this is a good idea. However, it’s a very low priority feature compared to many others on this forum, and it’s unlikely to happen in the near future.

              • Randomize Teams in a Tournament

                With a group of friends who play tournaments among themselves, it would be great to allow everyone to join the tournament and then randomly put everyone into teams.

                • "Clan Tab" in the "Select Players" and "Add or Remove Players" menus

                  To create internal clan games, it would be easier if you could directly invite your clan members in the invitation menus.

                  If you're in a bigger clan and you don't want to add all 100 members to your friends list, you have to invite every single players laboriously by using the "search" tab. A new invitation tab which shows only your clan members, similar to the friends tab, but maybe with filter options like "rank" or "level" would be the ideal solution.

                    • Notepad Attached to MD Games

                      Hi, I have an idea that i think can provide for quality of play. To have notepads to make notes on Games that are Multi-day. Because is too easy to forget playing multiple multiday games what were the plans you had in your head in the beggining of the game.

                      • Ability to clear account's statictics

                        It seems a decent feature for me, simply because u won't need to create new account once your stats got completely screwed

                        • Add an "auto-decline an invited player if innactive for over x days" option to the tournament settings

                          What the title says.

                          As discussed in the forum here
                          http://warlight.net/Forum/Thread.aspx?ThreadID=4112

                          default x days should probably be the same as the auto-boot time.

                          • Clan Manager Improvement

                            Clan Manager -> Founder of the Clan.

                            Add one more sub-type to all the members ; "Class". In other words a Member has two sub-types ("Title" and "Class"). "Class" works as a Variable and is optional to use for the clan.By standard this could just be "Class", and if you need to seperate it you do it manually. (As with titles) Option for Visible [On] or [Off] on Clan-page.

                            Add Sub-Manager. He basically has same authority as the Clan Manager by standard. Add/Remove members. Set titles and classes. Cannot remove another Sub-manager nor the Manager (Founder).

                            Add Class-Manager. Can only…

                              I want chatrooms where we can message each other. This feature would be great for clans and non clans alike, and it would be a great way to chat and arrange real time games with other players.

                                • Defensive AI

                                  I think there should be an AI that deploys but doesn't attack. This would be very useful for diplomacy games when someone gets booted and wants to come back. As it is now, you either get unexpectedly backstabbed by an ally gone AI, or you have people rushing to fill in empty territory while you are on the other side of the map and not gaining anything. Having this at least as an option in settings would greatly improve diplomacy games for Warlight players.

                                    The idea is pretty obvious :)

                                    Let us use the full 50 colours as our main colour, because I know several people want to use "charcoal" (black) as their starting colour, but that is only possible right now in 50 player games..

                                    Second Point. At Level 55, let us make 45 player games, and at level 56 (same level as all the maps unlocked) you get to make 50 player games. So we can make 50 or even 60 player games some time in the future (on Issander's Huge World for example, a 60 player wouldn't be too overcrowded).

                                    • Add option to make games that don't auto-start

                                      The host can define a game that doesn't start until the host clicks the "start" button.

                                      This feature already exists when playing the Flash version of Warzone, but the Unity app does not have this feature. This idea will add this feature to the Unity app just like the old Flash app had.

                                      • Warlight 'Game Chat' Feature

                                        The 'Game Chat' Feature who have two parts: the game would never start, the 40 player limit would be raised to a higher limit to accommodate larger groups of players.

                                        • New Sort Option under My Games: remaining time until boot

                                          Instead of sorting by "How long it's been my turn" (btw, that sort order is wrong too, longest times should appear first not last in list) I'd like to be able to sort by the remaining time until I might get booted. Say I have a 2day, 3day and 5day game and all are due since 47hours, the 2day game would appear first on the list, because it is more urgent to play than the 5day game.
