Re: Coup

Postby CB Droege » 25 December 2018, 14:31

Not everyone plays turn-based because they want thinking time. I live across the world from my friends that I want to play games with. When I'm free, they are working. When they're free, I am sleeping. The only way to play with them is turn-based mode. The games that are real-time only, we will simply never play. Which is fine, I guess, your call, but thought I'd let you know: It's not always about 'reaction time'. Shutting down turn-based closes off the game to a portion of the potential audience for really no reason other than because you don't think the game should be played that way.

Yes, it means you'll never play this game online with those friends. Again, it totally breaks the spirit of the game (even if it's not your intent to do it for the extra thinking time). I will not build it. There's also so much back and forth within just one turn (should be: declare action > declare challenge current player > resolve challenge > declare block > declare challenge blocker > resolve challenge > resolve action) that this would be basically unusable. Let's have no further discussion of this.

Coup notification of game end

Postby Jesdebel » 13 January 2019, 03:59

[*] Can we eliminate the notification on my wall regarding the end of game? I choose to watch, I know the game ended.. why does it notify me. I understand the need for a notification if I had chosen to leave the table.. but why give a choice if you’re going to tell me regardless?

I agree. This notification is automatically created by the BGA platform after a player is eliminated in any game (not specific to Coup).

Please consider creating a bug report against the main BGA website itself for this change request at https://en.boardgamearena.com/#!bugs?game=0 and select "about the website in general, not related to a game".
