"Cancel" vs "Do Nothing"

Post by DeviousRogue » 18 August 2019, 14:08

Sometimes my opponent plays right as I go to click "Cancel" to redo my moves and the "Cancel" button is replaced with the "Do nothing" button. Please change the locations of where the buttons appear or add a confirmation message asking if the player really wants to do nothing.

I've been caught out like that, too.

I think the best solution would be to "grey-out" (disable) the "do nothing" button for a couple of seconds, when it first appears. A real decision is always going to take at least a short time, so there's no harm in this change.

This is a great proposal!

Yeah, sometimes i am hessitant to click Cancel just because of that. My reccomendation is to make a play thinking like there is no cancel button; this way you dont jump into the action before you are 100% sure and you reduce the danger of clicking cancel out of time. Regardless, i hope this will be fixed soon
