Re: Field of Glory II Tournament Suggestions

If one first saved, then disconnected from the internet, then scrummed. The save upload would matchbthe download. The server would then still see an even upload/download count even though scrumming had occurred. Sorry, if I'm not getting it.

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Sorry, if one first saves, then detaches from the internet, and scrums offline and then turns off the game. Then, the game can still be re-loaded off the save with an even upload and download count, right? Sorry if I'm not getting it.

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Does that also cover scumming once per game turn? Or, are you saying the software will detect scumming where the player re-loads multiple combat results in a turn? Thanks.

Re: The Rally Point (discussion and questions)

Thanks, appreciated. Alternately, if the feature cannot be disabled maybe 1 load game can be allowed per match. I've played 53 matches and only saved the game just before getting on a flight. There is no need for multiple saves and loads on a turn.

Re: I'm done with this game!

I went ahead and made the motion that was first suggested by Mike_c that the save game feature be disabled in league and tournament play due to the "save-scrumming" cheat. This appears to be widespread, seems to be occurring in league play, and is extremely frustrating to players on the receiving en...

Save Scrumming cheat

I've requested on the main forum that the save game feature be disabled due to "save scrumming" in league and tournament games. I would motion that this be done before we commence season 2 in the next few days.

Save Scrumming cheat

Request that in league and tournament games the save game feature be disabled. "Save-scrumming" seems to be widespread and is effecting about 1 in 10 games quite obviously where the scrummer wins the significant battles in the match due to scrumming. Limited "save scrumming" likely occurs more frequ...

Re: I'm done with this game!

Ah, so there is a name for it even. That makes sense. I thought it might be "scrumming" a whole turn offline. I've never tried but I don't see a difference between scrumming 1 combat versus a full turn, which could take hours and hours if it was toward a really unlikely result. Very helpful to know ...

Re: I'm done with this game!

Ok I'm glad Kabill figured it out. The level of snarky is so high on the forum posts Mike I really am not willing to help further.

Re: I'm done with this game!

There are 2 movement bugs, one from undo, one where med foot gets extra AP. I reported this months ago.

On the re-running of turns I disagree with you Mike. Like Kabill, I suspect there is a simple way to run a turn multiple times in tandem offline that does not require a fu crack of the game.

Judea46

CunningC The tiebreaks alternate, so you will still capture Judea46 (unless you also win a tiebreak in Numidia51 this turn, then we go by win% on the double tiebreak). Tough luck for me in that case.

Re: I'm done with this game!

Alex, I just read through this thread and I sympathetic to your concerns. The initial response from RBS covers many of the situations that seem improbable in the gameplay are due to the game design where there is one good die roll that covers repeated combats on that unit. However, I also, like you,...

Re: New FOGII (April 2018) Campaign Tournament (bbogensc)

Morbio & Najanaja, no problem on the technical issues. Please let me know if I should put in a substitute general for your battles this turn. Ludendorf is eager for more action I think.

Re: Turn 6 Begin

This battle will almost sure result in a draw, leaving Dacia in control of a province.[/quote] Many thanks. Since attacker outnumbered defender in the battle both sides lose 3 armies on the draw. The remaining syracuse army retreats back. Greece26 then enters Turn 6 with no armies controlled by Dacia.
