This shouldn't be possible...

Post by Scorpion0x17 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 2:17 pm

Haven't put this in the Bugs because it's not really a bug, but this kind of thing really should be made not to happen:

I know such situations are bound to occur with purely random maps, but it should be possible to tweak the wall generation or unit placement rules to stop it happening.

Fortunately my opponent agreed to abandon the match (though I'm not sure why I say 'fortunately' because the subsequent challenge was almost as bad (in fact I joked that I preferred the first map!) and I lost).

What, you weren't up for that?

He might not have immediately tossed a grenade into that corner room...

:lol:

Actually, my completeist tendencies meant I ended up priming a turn anyway!

Hopefully, ahilson either forget about it for long enough for mode7 to implement the two-week time-out, and me to get the win, or he'll not chuck a grenade to one of the bazzilion points in that room that mean instant death for two of my units (and instead choose one of the handful that don't).

:P

(so far, though I've not checked for a week (having been AFC at my parents'), he hasn't even noticed I've primed a turn... teehee...)

These situations are seldom, so don't worry about them. Don't take first turn, hide the game and ask for a rematch.

I believe that you both have to prime at least one turn to win/lose after two weeks of inactivity.

Ah, yeah true.

Good job I wasn't being entirely serious.

(I just hate having unstarted games almost as much as having unfinished ones (if not more))
