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. Peace Treaties

    This setting will allow warlite to enforce peace treaties. Peace treaties can either be set for a certain amount of turns or be broken after giving notice. A treaty will be the equivalent of a diplomacy card. If both players acquiesce, it can be canceled early (example: one guy accidentally has 1 spot in the other guys bonus so they cancel peace he takes spot and then they remake peace). There will also be a setting that makes peace treaties public or not, depending on the creators settings. The idea of peace treaties is two-fold, one it forces people not…

    Hey all,

    I’m pleased to announce that peace treaties / diplomacy games can now be played using the new mod framework!

    Check out the mod “Advanced Diplo v2”, which has a war/peace/allies system, and a lot of other neat features that work with this!

  2. AI replaces booted/surrendered players

    Allow game creators to optionally specify that when a player gets booted or surrenders, instead of changing their territories to neutral, an AI player takes over their territories for the remainder of the game.

    You can now do this! Just check the box during game creation that says “Players turn into AI controlled players when booted” or “Players turn into AI controlled players when surrendered.”

    You can choose one or both of these.

  3. Personalized templates

    This would allow you to save your game settings, so you can create games using your own template without re-entering the settings.

    I’m pleased to announce that personalized templates are now available!

    Whenever you create a customized game, WarLight will ask you if you’d like to save your game settings as a template. You can then use that template to easily create games with the same or similar settings.

  4. Global private messages

    Allows you to send a private message to a player you're not in a game with.

    It’s now possible to send private messages to anybody, even if you’re not in a game with them!

    This is called WarLight mail. There are two ways to send mail: You can visit a player’s profile page and click the Send Mail button. This starts a one-on-one mail thread that both players can reply to.

    Alternatively, you can visit the new Community → Mail tab and click Compose New Mail. Then you can select up to 20 players that will all be able to post in the same mail thread. You can think of this like a private forum thread that only the players you select can read or write to.

  5. Ladder

    The WarLight ladder is a system that ranks players based on their true skill.

    The current "Ranked Game" system is not a measure of true skill, since it's easy to artificially inflate your rankings simply by declining to play against stronger opponents.

    The ladder overcomes this by preventing you from choosing which players you play against. Players who elect to play in the ladder will get games created for them automatically and then the results will be used to rank them.

    The ladder rankings are displayed publicly on the website for all to see.

  6. Identify players by their country with a flag next to their name

    Chess.com has a feature I would like to see added. Each player's name has next to it their country' flag. It makes it more interesting to see where our opponents and partners are located.

  7. Save single player games

    This would allow you to save the progress of a single player game and resume it later.

    This would be done as an auto-save after each turn. This is important since you don't want players to be able to load previous saves and try something new, as that would ruin the integrity of existing wins (i.e. you could change your orders based on what the AI did, or based on what you discovered behind the fog)

  8. Open seat prerequisites

    Game creators can set requirements that players must meet to join an Open Seat in their game.

    Something which would allow you to specify variables like:
    * Minimum no. of completed games
    * Minimum days since registration
    * Minimum win %
    * Maximum boot % (so that if a player has been booted from 10% of the battles played, he's not allowed to join the battle)

    Just a few rules like this, as I'm a multi day player... it's quite annoying when you create a 2-3 day turn pace battle with 12v12, and after the first 0-5 turns 1-5 ppl…

    I’m pleased to announce that this is now available! On the Customize Settings step of creating a game, you’ll notice a new tab named “Open Seats.” Select this, and you can set prerequisites that players must meet to join open seats in your game.

  9. Ability to make and save notes on player.

    This would allow the user to make notes on another player's profile (only visible to the person who made the note).

    Some benefits:

    - you can notate players who have betrayed your truces
    - notate players who have been vulgar
    - notate a player's strategy

    It’s now possible to create and save notes on players!

    Simply visit someone’s profile and click the new “Private Notes” button. These will be stored and kept only for you – other players will never be able to see them.

    You can return later to view or edit the notes you wrote previously.

  10. Deployment Limits: a Tactical Option (esp. for Multi-Attack Games)

    This is a simple idea which makes games really interesting, and it has the bonus of being (probably) incredibly easy to implement.

    It's simple: a deployment limit states that, on any given turn, no player may issue a Deploy order of more than X armies. (I like 10 armies, myself, so if it can't be adjustable, 10 would work well.)

    In other words, you cannot deploy more than X armies to any given territory on any given turn.

    This makes Multi-Attack games a lot more fun, and feels, in practice, very much like Local Deployment, except that you don't have…

  11. Achievements

    Achievements are awards that get unlocked as you play the game. Your profile can show which achievements you have unlocked.

    For example:

    - Complete the Insane challenge level.
    - Complete Level 3 in 20 turns or less.
    - Win a multi-player game with more than 20 opponents.
    - Make a stack of over 1000 armies.
    etc..

  12. Instant-surrender option

    Game creators can elect to make surrenders happen instantly for their game, instead of requiring surrenders to be accepted.

  14. Multi-attack card

    Same as in multi-attack enabled game - the difference is with this card you can make only ONE multi-attack.This card could simulate Blitzkrieg: almost all of my armies (infantry) move with steady pace (1 territory/turn) but from time to time I can use my tanks to attack with the speed of 1,2,3 territories/turn; depending on how many multi-attack cards I have saved.

  16. Open Tournaments

    Much like the "Open Seats" system, but for tournaments. This would allow tournament creators to declare their tournaments "open" which would allow any WarLight player to join it, even if they were not invited.

    I’m pleased to announce that Open Tournaments are now available!

    When creating a tournament, you can mark it as “open” which allows anybody to join without being invited.

    To join open tournaments, head to the Tournaments tab and click Open Tournaments.

    I’m pleased to announce you can now create rematches using the “Personalized Templates” feature. This will allow you to create a new game with the same settings and players as any existing game.

    To do this, visit the game and click Settings, then click the template name.

  18. Highlight Non-Standard Game Settings

    Very simple: non-standard game settings should be highlighted (in red, perhaps) in the Game Settings window. Most hosts put something in the game title when they are using particularly unusual settings, but some don't and I've definitely been in several games that I would never have joined if I'd noticed the settings. This would make it essentially impossible to make this common mistake.

  19. Adding new filters to "Past Games" section

    Dear Fizzer, would you be so kind as to do sth with "Past Games" section? It is totally user unfriendly. Whenever I want to analyze the game that has just ended, I need to spend(waste) hell lot of time in "Past Games" section to find it. Why? Because you have only allowed to sort past games by 1)their name 2) thier "Crated Date". Believe me or not, sometimes I just dont remember the exact name of past game so it is annoying (or impossible) to search it that way. The option to sort games according to thier creation date is…
