I think the Abandon Card is poorly named because it doesn't do a good job at describing what it does. Does anyone have any ideas on a better name? Perhaps something like the Land mine Card?

Abandon sounds so good..
But if you really want to change, how about Scorched-Earth Card?

No, fortify implies you still own it

Never thought twice about Abandon, but now that you mention it, the name does not imply the troop increase, just a lack of ownership

Perhaps just 'Burn Card'?

What if you did:

Priority Blockade
Delayed Blockade

Or

Blockade - priority
Blockade - delayed


Since they have the same function and are only different in phase.

Call the abandon card the "Emergency Blockade" or "Emergency Fortification".

Abandon sounds quite nice, plus you don't need to increase the # of armies when using abandon.

I think the word "abandon" works - you are purposely losing the territory, with most likely more neutral troops than your troops.

I don't think it's an issue. Changing it would just be confusing to existing players.

Is there a more accurate phrase than "Defensive Feint" that refers to the act of luring your enemy into a trap by feigning retreat? If so, that could be a viable alternative since it not only emphasizes that you'll be retreating from a territory but also makes it clear that your retreat will result in possible damage to your opponent.

However, I think a defensive feint is also a valid- although possibly uncommon- move within WL (beyond just playing a card- we've all faked retreats at one point or another) so that could get confusing.

Defensive trap.

^ I said more accurate, not more ambiguous. You don't always retain meaning if your simplification algorithm is simply replacing words with more commonly used near-synonyms.

I always thought "abandon" implied you rigged the place with traps and destroyed anything useful, like burning food stores and destroying bridges. Thus, the enemy takes heavy losses reclaiming the territory.

Scorched Earth Card is awesome.

You said yourself, act of luring your enemy into a trap; I'm surprised you didn't see it. As for feint, that's just for momentary confusion, not necessarily a trap.

Scorch Card is a good alternative, Scorched Earth is too wordful.

Yes, Kapy, but you can't just pick out random words from the sentence and substitute them in. >_<

Does the phrase "defensive trap" even remotely hint at what the Abandon Card does?

More than defensive feint - defensive trap is, well, a trap; if someone has a big army going in to an equally sized abandon, they're going to be in trouble, and they didn't know that it was coming (in most cases).
