I am not sure if this is the right forum for development suggestions, but here it goes:

It would be great if the "end screen" (lower right corner) could show the players' income in the final round. Many games end with a surrender or two, and I often want to see quickly if surrendering was the right thing to do, or if the loosing team could somehow have changed the tide. Maybe there is some arcane UI that I do not know of, but currently I end up counting bonuses, which is tedious.

A format something like this:

Team A:
Winner! [28]

Winner! [35]

Winner! [5]

Team B:
AI (was: HadToRunForAnUnexpectedDinner)
Surrendered [25]

Booted from the Game [0]

Surrendered [51]

I could not see an EDIT button either, maybe my forum skills are dwindling?

I just wanted to say thanks for a simple but GREAT game!
I play it way too much, and really enjoy it (and should really buy a premium)!

I agree with this idea.. you can see the final incomes by viewing the players screen, but that is noticably annoying..

Posts on the forum cannot be edited once posted (so use the *Preview* button liberally :p ).

On the end screen, press the up arrow once; this will return you to the last order of the last turn; the game hadn't ended there yet, so incomes are still shown. (Usually, this will not be an actual order, but an "announcement": Player X was eliminated or Player X got (a piece of) a Y card. If it is indeed a real order then maybe (if it is an attack which succeeded and completed or broke a bonus), you still have to manually correct for its results.

That having been said, I still think it would be a lot more convenient if the game did this automatically. What I described above is just a temporary solution (also known as a work-around), not a suggestion to drop your idea.

Oh, and no, this is not the right way to make suggestions. While discussing things on the forum can be a useful way to fine-tune suggestions before making them "official", making suggestions here "doesn't count". To really propose your idea, go to [Uservoice](http://warlight.uservoice.com/) and post it there. (There really isn't any way you could've known this; while it is described on the [WL Wiki](http://wiki.warlight.net/index.php/Feedback), that page is [rather difficult to find](http://wiki.warlight.net/index.php/Special:WhatLinksHere/Feedback).)

Thanks for the thorough reply RvW (and Perrin).
I already found the Uservoice page, but I guess I'll leave this idea here for a while for feedback before I post anything there (also searching through the archives to see that is surely must have been posted before).
Thanks also for the tips on Up Arrow and player screens as temporary workaround hacks.

Isn't the Statistics window ment for that purpose?
The Graph allows you to see the "Base armies received each turn" of your opponent and yourself during the game. Wouldn't that answer your question?

The statistics window is members only, so that doesn't answer his question.

I open history and then go back 1 move to see the end incomes.
I don't mind it much, but it would be fun to see this implemented some time.

And with all suggestions... there's a User Voice Forum.

Put it up and promote it during your game to get some votes.

Fizzer is awesome, and will do something about it if there's a need for it and it doesn't take too much resources from other high priority fixes.

agree with original post. also: when a player goes ai, it should say whether they have been booted or surrenderred. also, it should say a player has been autobooted where it normally says the player who booted the inactive player.
