Walk Over?
Is there a rule that after x days, the game is ruled in the favour of the player leading at the moment. I get the feeling that some players are abandoming matches they are loosing.

No, currently there is no such rule. That's indeed a long outstanding feature request, because – as you suggested – there are some players abusing this when they are about to lose a match. However, I heard on IRC that now that the new server is up and running (and stabelizing as it seems), a "2-week timout" will be implemented/activated soon.

Ok, thanks!

P.S.: Just heard that the 2-week timeout should be activated this weekend.

great news! I take it if one player has submitted a turn he will be given the victory!

@Maetco: MangoFusion (channel op, not sure what exactly is his role in the dev team) said it on IRC
@coxy5: That should be the case, at least if both players have committed at least one turn. If not, the game will be probably simply deleted (and none of the players gets a win/loss).

Seems fair!

The deletion is a good point particularly for impossible challenges that people sometimes make up. I was challenged to a game of Hostage where my hostages were bricked in for example.

Small update on this: the devs had a major issue to fix, which delayed the update. But it's the next thing on the list, so the 2-week timeout should be not too far away.

(info also from MangoFusion on IRC, who seems to be mainly working on the server software)

thanks KronOS!
Maetco May 27, 2013 @ 11:28am 
Yeah, thanks KronOS for the updates (and the source).

Hey Kronos--when do I get to have a run at you again? Getting the itch!
KronOS Jun 30, 2013 @ 11:25pm 
Huh? Did we play in FS in the past DontCallMeShirley? Don't remember, sorry (=.

Was inactive for a week, but should have more time for games now, so feel free to challenge me (ingame is Kron-OS).
KronOS Jul 1, 2013 @ 7:53am 
BTW: The two week timeout has been implemented and is active :).
That is awesome news Kronos! Thanks for the news! I knew I liked you for some reason! :-)

I apologize that I forgot to identify myself accurately. I'm actually "grizwalter" but was using my girlfriend's account when I saw this thread. We played a long ways back, when I was but a young FS pup. I'm all grows up, all grows up and all grows up now. haha Look forward to meeting you again on the field of battle.

BTW: TOTALLY SEPARATE SUBJECT--has anyone here dealt with the mutators glitch that messes with the "aim" in deploying shields? I can't use mutators and shields in the same match or it is a struggle of epic proportion.
