  1. Vote to End = sharing of points

    I hate it when i play really well with an ally with great teamwork, and then when it comes to the end of the game, someone has to awkwardly decide to surrender and lose all the points. It will be much better if we can split the points.

    This also applies to when someone ruins the game by being booted. In this system of sharing the points, each player gets a very small amount of points from the player leaving (since he's not there to claim it), which makes up for it.

    • Multicard setting

      This allows set 2 same type of card with different settings. this means, you can set two Reinforcement cards (such as one with fixed 12 armies and another one with number of territories * 0.2) with different settings. it can also applied for other cards.

      • Rewarding Makers

        Map makers work really hard on their projects and it's kind of a shame that they don't really get rewarded for it, except for a trophy that is just for show.

        My suggestion is simple, reward map makers with points whenever a game is created with one of their maps. The amount can be fixed (Something like 100 points per game) or be dependant on the rating (Which I think would be better). For example, if a map has 5 rating, then the creator gets 100 points per game, if it has 4.5 then the reward is 90 points, if…

        • Predetermined/multi-game teams

          This was suggested on the forum http://www.warlight.net/Forum/Thread.aspx?ThreadID=730
          It would be nice to have the ability to join a tournament or game as a team. It would also allow for team statistics. I often like to play on the same team as my friends but we often run into the problem of other people joining our team.

          • Highlighted Wastelands & Manual Territories

            An option to highlight Wastelands and possible Pick-Territories in Manual distribution game-mode through Fog during later phases of game as well. Ability to see them in order to save the need to check Turn-Zero in mid-game. (Home button is not that convenient especially for large maps with lot of players).

            How?
            Having Option and ability to Toggle Show/Hide Wastelands & Manual Territories through fog as well those territories that you have captured or are in visible area and under enemy or teammate control. It would enhance strategic planning and understanding of map without the need to remember or check Turn…

            • Diplomacy Game Mode

              This idea has been posted and veto-ed before but I think it is quite distinct from the popular "peace treaties" idea and deserves another chance. I have personally participated in a handful of diplomacy-style games and I think they would benefit greatly from having an actual game mode to accommodate them and force people to play by the rules. It's a great addition to Warlight that sets it apart from other Risk-type games and I would love to see it nurtured.

              The game works like this:

              1) At the beginning of the game, all of the players select a single…

              • Multi-transfer

                New local deployment feature is good. But I think it can be better if it accompanies with Multi-transfer, which works like supply lines. Transfers will be canceled if territories in your supply line get cut.

                    • MAPS: Support SVG-Embedded Images for amazing backgrounds

                      Currently there is SVG-Limitation (http://wiki.warlight.net/index.php/SVG_Limitations) - Warlight doesn't support embedded JPG/PNG's onto maps.

                      Implementing this would allow map developers to embed beautiful backgrounds for their maps (while territories and bonuses would be created current vector shapes).

                      Map backgrounds created this way could decrease size of many maps, since JPG compression can be very effective.

                      • Copy Teammate's picks

                        There should be an option to copy (mirror as some say) the pick set of a teammate. In ladder games this isn't a huge deal (though would save time in 3v3 ladder). But, in large games it can be a huge deal. In a 15v15 player game with 3 picks, that is 90 picks each person needs to make. It would save A LOT of time if you had 1 person input them, and the other 14 push a button to copy them. There should still be a 'commit' button after that so it does not auto advance if you…

                        • Chat window docked and permanently visible..

                          Have the chat window docked in a permanent position, I find it a bit annoying having to open it and move it around all the time, especially on team play when discussing areas, if you have to keep moving it out of the way.

                          • New Game Page Filter Options

                            For a more in-depth explanation: http://warlight.net/Forum/Thread.aspx?ThreadID=355. This would allow the player more flexibility in what games show up on their multiplayer page. Instead of being restricted to just Active Games or Games where it's My Turn or the other preset settings, the player can pick and choose exactly what criteria they want to use to show games on their page.

                                Pokemon Go is well accepted game by all and the Pokecoins(similar to Warlight Coins) can be bought through money or collected in game(capturing Poke-Gyms). The levels needed to capture the Gym is higher and all players have equal chances of capturing a Gym(it is divided into 3 teams over-all).

                                But in Warlight, now the Warlight coins can only be bought or won through some special events-as the 100 coin gift is not happening now. Why can't we gain coins for watching the advertisements or advertisement clicks? A…

                                  • Allow 41 to 50 player games

                                    It's a known fact that there was once a 50-man FFA event held by Fizzer himself, so the code is there; implementing such a feature, even if under some nasty requisites (membership, or a high level like 57~60) would be very easy and quick. Assuming the code wasn't changed much, it's all about making it publicly avaiable.

                                    This would be great for large Free-For-All games; as chaotic as 40-man games are, an extra 20% players will make it even more fun! Specially on huge maps like Hex Earth.

                                    In addition, this would be specially good for diplomacy players who tend…

                                    • Able to commit games that don't respect vacations while on vacation

                                      without ending the vacation.

                                      some tournaments do not respect vacation, which is totally fine not to drag games for too long - what is not ok is that, if you are on vacation, you need to commit those games if you don't want to get booted, but when you do, your vacation is over and you have to commit every other game too within an hour, which could be IMPOSSIBLE while on vacation with a very limited internet access.

                                      This extends to real time games and every other game in which you can be booted while being on vacation.

                                      I…

                                      • 50 Player Games/ 50 Starting Colours

                                        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).

                                        • Private Games (allows open seats without being advertised)

                                          A "private game" is a public game which is not advertised in the Open Games list. (I believe the option already exists in the Warlight code, so it shouldn't require much programming work.)

                                          This allows a player to start a game and then share the link in whichever way they like: on the forums, by e-mail, with their clanmates, or in current games they are playing.

                                          By using a private game, a player can start games with specific rules or specific requirements. Doing so has two advantages:

                                          1. It doesn't take up space in the Open Games tab.
                                          2. The…
