Feature Requests & Ideas
Actually, probably better being only a display thing for the lobby (not displaying the game name in lobby if 0 people inside), as keeping it loaded is important for people that disconnect, not to lose their savegames (but they would lose it anyways if someone else go in the bot and load it up).
In the lobby there are often many "dead" games, with 0 players "waiting". If those got cleared away it would be helpful.
So, here there are a bunch of things in this topic that probably should fit better each one as its own topic, and I believe the number 2 and 6 are invalid bug reports or something bugged off recently. I just don't understand the point 1, but I'm guessing that's invalid as well, or a very weird bug happening recently.
As @prastle says, it would really help if you can be more specific or upload screenshots when those things happen (for example, I've no idea how to verify your point 1; so I doubt any developers will, either).
On point 5:
On this matter, since bots are currently discussed upon other reasons, if it would be easy to do, I think it would be good if the bot would instantly go back having no "Name" (meaning no selected game; like when they are initially created) as soon as 0 Players are inside.Easy to glance the actual games and the free bots. Easy to have an idea of the popular games and what is actually getting played or waited for.
I think the main benefits would be:
Minor matter, of course, but I think that would clear things up a bit, as per this request.
For beating the Ai, oh I wanted to mention that using Low Luck dice is a massive help and if I didn't use Low Luck dice I bet I would have played way more games trying to beat the Ai so basically Low Luck dice is a bigger help against a machine opponent than a real person I am positive eh?
@cernel Oh thanks for that tip about removing P.U.'s but, anyways, completely skipping Russia's 1st move was something me and my friends try occasionally for fun with the actual board game and my friends have actually beat me when I was the Axis and they were the Allies and they skipped Russia's 1st turn and let me go first with Germany and they still beat me and they loved that win!
Against the Ai, I can't remember if I've ever beaten the Axis AI still when I forfeited my 1st turn with Russia (I would say it if I did in my posts earlier in this thread!) but it's my usual routine for testing the updated AI - the 1st game I do the Russia forfeit move, and then if I lose I don't forfeit my 1st move with Russia in the next match. Once I've beaten the Axis AI, I then do a regular match against the Allies AI which is very hard as I've said ... and getting harder!
