Capture the Statue victory on annihilation of other teams

Postby AlexV » Wed May 06, 2009 12:51 pm

I'm not sure if this has been posted already, but it occurs to me that in Capture the State, if I've annihilated all the other teams, and have a higher capture score than they do, then there's not much point in continuing the match until the timer runs out. Surely victory should be declared as soon as it is impossible for me to lose?

2 threads down ("there should come a surrender option") is about just that.

So long as the CPU player can detect the unwinnable condition I described and auto-surrender, then yes, that would probably do the job just as well.

It won't, because it's not totally hopeless. There's a) retribution and b) randomizer. A comeback is always possible in theory (unless the score difference is bigger than the number of statues on the field plus the time left times the maximal statue spawn rate, of course).

Sorry for slamming the grammar hammer (I'm not one to talk) but you said capture the state I don't think its a good idea for you to declare war on any part of American soil. :) lol

The guy that you are responding to last posted over six months ago. He is probably not coming back. There was no reason to bump this topic in order to be a grammar nazi. Especially when you are a hypocritical grammar nazi, who can't even ensure that his own post is properly written.

That should have been your attitude from the beginning.
