Warzone Features

Welcome! This forum tracks Warzone feature requets to the Warzone creator. You can vote on the features you’d most like to see in the game.

  1. show game url in address bar

    It would be great if the actual game url was displayed in the browser's address bar. That way if someone has to reload because of connection (or some other issues) they automatically get to the active game.

    It wouldn't be hard to implement using the HTML5 history API, which is supported by all major browsers. (http://caniuse.com/#feat=history)

    eg:
    import flash.external.ExternalInterface;
    ExternalInterface.call("history.pushState({},'',"+game_url+")");
    on loading a new game.

    (One could even listen to the popstate event and make the browser's back button work properly. :)

  2. Remember community levels you've played

    Add a page where you can see community levels you've played. This would make it easier to remember what levels you've played or resume a level you were playing recently without having to find it in the list again.

  3. Be more colorblind friendly

    Ugh I typed this whole thing and then found it I had no votes left and it all got deleted, sorry but I really don't feel like typing that all again...

    Basically I need names in the order bar such as "Matts' card wore off" instead of just "card wore off" with a color box because I can not tell the difference between some colors.

    You now have the ability to change your color in games. This helps colorblind people since they can select colors that are more easy for them to see. Check out the new “Change Color” button that appears when clicking on a player in the lower-right corner.

  4. Add tournament stats to profiles

    Your profile can show the number of tournaments you've played in, and the number of times you've gotten 1st/2nd/3rd/etc place.

    You can now add tournament stats on your profile!

    Simply edit your profile and click the new button “Change Favorite Tournaments” and then pick which ones you’d like to display.

  5. Vacation Status

    This would be a temporary status granted to your account that would give you a certain number of days per year to allocate to 'vacation' days. When activated, your account would be unable to be booted from games. This helps those who take vacations with limited internet access, but wish to continue with all their games without being booted.

  6. Show teammate's orders in real time as they build them

    Be able to see the movements of your team mates in the planning stages of the game so you may coordinate attacks and transfers with greater ease.

  8. Don't require surrenders to be accepted in Free For All games

    I would like it if surrenders would happen automatically and not need to be accepted in Free For All games.

    I like to know I can leave a game if I want without getting booted. Another thing that I like is knowing when someone is surrendered so I can base my orders on it. Oftentimes I don't know if someone's surrender is going to go through this turn so I have to use troops and assume it won't, when I could use them elsewhere.

    The only reason I can think of not accepting someone else's surrender in a FFA is…

    Game creators have their choice of whether or not surrenders must be accepted.

    However, I am pleased to announce that the map-of-the-week games no longer require surrenders to be accepted! Thanks for the suggestion!

  9. Pruning inactive accounts from invite list

    It would be nice if there was a button that could automatically remove all inactive accounts from your invite list.

  10. For ranked stats on profiles, separate team games from non-team games

    Your stats in your profile would break down into Team Games and FFA's. So for a 4 person game win, you would have stats for 2v2's, 1v1v1v1 (FFA), (no need for 3v1). I think a 8 person FFA win is way harder to do than a 4v4 win.

    Your profiles now show team games separate from FFA games!

    Note that games with uneven teams (such as 3v1) are no longer included, since there’d be no way to tell if you were on the bigger or smaller side.

    Here’s an example:

    2 player FFA: 271 / 370 (73%)
    3 player FFA: 13 / 24 (54%)
    4 player FFA: 16 / 39 (41%)
    5 player FFA: 5 / 8 (63%)
    6 player FFA: 6 / 20 (30%)
    2v2: 138 / 181 (76%)
    2v2v2: 2 / 8 (25%)
    2v2v2v2: 0 / 1 (0%)
    2v2v2v2v2: 1 / 3 (33%)
    2v2v2v2v2v2: 0 / 1 (0%)
    3v3: 30 / 46 (65%)
    3v3v3: 3 / 8 (38%)
    3v3v3v3: 2 / 5 (40%)
    3v3v3v3v3v3: 1 / 2 (50%)
    4v4: 15 / 22 (68%)
    4v4v4: 0 / 2 (0%)
    4v4v4v4: 2 / 4 (50%)
    5v5: 5 / 8 (63%)
    5v5v5: 0 /…

  11. Improved Tournament Settings

    (1) Real-time tournament results/rankings.
    (2) More advanced tiebreakers.
    (3) Rotating Teammates RR Tournaments: Each player plays with every other player at least once. The tournament (2v2 or 3v3) then plays out. The winner is the individual whose teams won the most games. http://www.jdawiseman.com/papers/tournaments/individual-pairs/individual-pairs.html
    (4) New Round, New Template: Each round in the tournament has a different template.

    (5) Host can reduce number of players needed to start (in case the tournament does not start in a reasonable amount of time).
    (6) Multiday tournaments are automatically deleted after a fixed period of time (if they don't fill up).

    (7) Anonymous tournaments:…

  12. Allow distributing bonus armies only within bonuses

    Currently, all of a player's armies can be distributed on any of a player's territories. With this option enabled in a game, a bonus can only be distributed in the territories that comprise the bonus, and must be moved to the frontier using normal means. This makes for games with a more balanced distribution of armies, and reduces the advantage for the player with the most bonuses.

  14. Remove inactive players from the ladder

    When a ladder player or part of a team has been inactive for 6 full days, they are automatically removed from the ladder, as per the current "remove me from ladder" functionality. This would hopefully include seasonal ladders as well.

    After 6 days, the player has been fully autobooted from every ladder game they were in at the time they stopped playing. Having them continue to get games only hurts them and the players that they played against previously. Future games are uneventful and take up game slots for their opponents. There are no positive effects of staying in the…

  15. Sending Troops for Diplo games

    This feature would be a setting you could add to a game that would allow transferring of troops to Non team mate players. This would be of great significance to Diplomacy games, as you could send troops to new allies, vassals could give troops to their liege lords, ETC. I feel that this would be a fantastic feature and make Diplomacy games even more intriguing.

  16. 2v2 Coin Matches

    Coin matches should have more diversity in the available game types - even if only as a custom coin match, 2v2 should be an option. In general, coin matches need much better support for team play.

  18. submit

    I'd like to see a way to save my orders without submitting them.

    There are several use-cases:

    I may want to plan most of my moves, but wait for negotiations to finish before I finalize.
    I want to share my plans with teammates, but not finalize until we finish discussing strategy.
    On very large maps, I may have hundreds of orders and not have time to plan them all in a single sitting.
    Sometimes I'll click on Modify Orders to tweak something, then forget to re-submit, thus losing all my hard work.

  19. Update the warlight Ios app to support iPhone 6/6s resolution

    The current ios app only supports older resolutions and does not support iphone 6/6s resolutions. It would be nice to play on the correct resolution for the phone, instead of everything being larger than it is.

  20. Facebook integration

    This would likely involve making it easier to invite friends from Facebook, the ability to log-in via Facebook, or making a version of WarLight that lives within the Facebook chrome.
