  1. Make Attack Only option available on the 3v3 Ladder

    There's no reason not to have the option to use it in 3v3 Ladder games. Maybe Fizzer just forgot to add it when he made the template?

    • 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 Ability to assign cards to slots

        In Scenario/Slot games, players are given pre-set territories. Wouldn't it be amazing if players could assign different cards/pieces to different slots? This could be used to make even more unique or balanced games! For example, if someone had made a World War Two scenario, the Soviet Union player could maybe have extra reinforcement cards? While Nazi Germany would have a few Priority and Delay cards.

        This seems like it wouldn't wreck or ruin the game because players don't need to use it? And looks fairly easy to implement into the game.

        • Auto refresh for the My Games page

          Have an auto refresh in the game lounge similar to the auto refresh when you're in a game. Maybe have a setting where you can disable and/or change the amount of time between refreshing.

          • 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.

            • Internationalization

              Currently, WarLight is available only in English. I think this may be a barrier for some people who either don't know English or isn't their mother tongue. Therefore I suggest to create some kind of internationalization (that is, game translated to different languages).

              • tweaks to live tournament system

                i feel we are still missing a few tweaks to the live tournament system:
                1) being able to downsize and upsize according to joining demand (date of join gives people priority)
                2) keeping a waiting list when tournament is full
                3) pop up a confirmation when the realtime tournament starts to confirm the person is active before game is attributed, if it's not then pass their slot to next person in waiting list
                4) option to fill up the rest of the tournament slots with bye slots when we are missing 25% of the people to start the tournament

                • 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.

                    • Limit number of troops to deploy in a territory

                      Currently, each round, players can deploy all their troops in a single territory. It should be limited by number of allied neighboring countries. For instance, I have the control of France, Spain and Switzerland. I would like to deploy troops in France. The maximum number allowed is 1 + 2 neighbors = 3. This way the connected territories are supported more than single ones. Microprose's Risk II has this rule as well.

                        • Pinnable Menu

                          The "menu" in the bottom left corner would get a pin button. Clicking this would fix the menu so it's always open and never closed unless you manually close it.
                          This configuration would also move the chat button into the menu so it's still visible when pinned.

                          • Player "Active/Inactive" Status- where inactive players automatically forfeit all open games.

                            If a player has not made a move in any game for 30-90 days (comment on how long you think it should be), then their status would change from "active" to "inactive" and they would automatically forfeit any open games (the equivalent of a auto-surrender).

                            Any move in any game would reset the clock on one's active status, so this would not address people who choose not to play a given game for months, but it would clean-up games where one or more of the players has left WL.

                            Also, if you become inactive, all you would have to do…

                            • Reversed Analyze graph

                              Currently, the upper graph describe chance of capturing the territory with X troops. I think about adding option to reverse the graph, so that it describe what chance have my enemy to capture my territory, if he attacks with X armies.

                              Quite often it's possible to guess / calculate the income of our opponent, so we knew how big attacks he is able to do. But if I want to check, how many armies I have to put to a territory, to defend it against attack of i.e. 43 I need to first calculate 43*0.6=25,8, and then I check in…

                                • Clan Wars and Clan Rankings

                                  Its a very controversial idea with clans wanting this but at the same time with non-clan people not caring at all.

                                  Here is my idea of a clan war:
                                  20 skilled players are chosen from 2 different clans.
                                  They are then taken to an offical really balanced template and they do a 20 vs 20 match basically.

                                  The difference between this being a normal game is that the amount of xp players gain should be doubled, or at least x1.5, so people can become motivated to do this wars in the first place. The huge difference is that there should…

                                    Due to the recent cases of low level trolling accounts on the forums (probably alts of someone) I think the that the players should only be able to make let's say 2 threads in 24h in each subforum, and maybe increase that limit as they level up to 3 threads at lv 20, 4 at lv 35 and 5 at lv 50. This way we could prevent future mass spamming of the forums (I have already seen 3 accouts doing that in the past 2 months.)

                                      This would give the option for players to delete their WarLight account.

                                      This would only be usable if you were not active in any games or tournaments.

                                      • Additional Sound Notifications

                                        The idea is to add sound notifications to certain actions. Examples include: direct boot time has been reached, personal message received, public/team chat message received.

                                        My primary motivation for this idea is that many times players think they have submitted their turn and minimize Warlight while doing something else, only to be booted a few minutes later because they don't realize the game is waiting for them.

                                        These additional sounds would let users know that something is going on that they should take a look at. Most useful, in my opinion, would be a sound when the direct boot time…

                                          I was thinking of a cool way of handling the RT Ladder polls, so that templates change from time to time, new good ones can be added in the future and new players will be able to vote too.

                                          - Each template can be rated on a scale from 1 to 10

                                          - Only players who actually play the RT Ladder should vote: my suggestion is only let players with RT Ladder rating >1500 vote

                                          - Players can vote and change their votes anytime

                                          - Allow players with rating >1800 or >1900 to submit new templates that can be voted…
