Hello Warzone community

Im quite unfamiliar with forum stuff so I am sorry if this post is tough to read but please give it a try :D it is thinking on improvements to the Warzone experience that I come to you!

I have played warzone from time to time and during Covid I found out about the "Cities" variant of the game which ( correct if I am wrong ) seems to be the most played in the "open-games" section.

If you are a warzone player and havent tried this variant, I strongly recommend you to do so as it brings a lot more strategy into the game.

Straight to business, I would like to present some changes that would bring HUGE balance changes into the game which would make it a lot more appealing to new and old players:

1 - Unable 2 spawns in 1 territory ( this feels to me as the strongest change required for balancing spawns and it is applicable for every single map, I could be wrong but I believe this requires Dev intervention, meaning we as players cannot configure this in the map settings, if I am incorrect, please teach me how to do so :) tyvm )

2 - Few changes in territories generating different bonuses as follows - Qssonoba added to Lusitania being worth 1, Rome added to South Italy to be worth 3, Carthage added to Africa to be worth 2, Hippo Regius removed from Africa and added to Numidia to be worth 1, Saldae removed from Numidia to be added to Tripolis being worth 1, Alexandria Durocorturom and the Islands being worth 0

3 - Place 2 Auto-Game rooms with 1v1 ( no cards ) and 2v2 format ( gift card only ), as I believe for new players , the city experience is already alot, mixing that with cards would make it too complicated, better leave that for after they already enjoy the game and want to spice it up

I honestly believe the 2 first small changes would completely change the dynamic of the game into a way more balanced version of what we have today, the "2" change is focused on Imperium map as it seems to be the most played but we can definetly discuss other maps and check for ways to balance them out after a couple of games, although the huge balancing change is number 1.

Before moving this to the appropriate place I would like to ask how the community feels about these changes, as I wasnt a highly active warzone player, I dont know if tournaments were run with similar rules or if anyone ever mentioned changes such as mine, in case this happend I am sorry but I strongly feel like these changes would make a huge difference as most games are so much RNG at this moment, a game that reduces RNG as much as possible could attract the crowd.

Also it is the century of "Remastering" so maybe thinking of way to make the interface "prettier" could have make it more appealing aswell.

Let me know how you all feel,

Thank you for your attention! :)

reshdrk - as someone who's played in your games a few times (and enjoyed them), I can sympathize with your comments. I can also slay they are within your power to fix.

The Imperium Romanum map you use - a popular one - has had versions that include distribution modes, though I don't see them in the version on your game. Random Warlords mode, in particular, had only one starting spot available in each bonus and didn't include capitals. Similarly, the bonuses in the game you run have already been altered and could be again. I'm not sure you can redefine the areas without making your own map, but you can do much of what you wish within the template for your own game.

You should be able to do this yourself, like Dogamer said, by using Random Warlords distribution (which randomly sets 1 start per bonus), unless there are overlapping bonuses on the map.
2 - Few changes in territories generating different bonuses as follows - Qssonoba added to Lusitania being worth 1, Rome added to South Italy to be worth 3, Carthage added to Africa to be worth 2, Hippo Regius removed from Africa and added to Numidia to be worth 1, Saldae removed from Numidia to be added to Tripolis being worth 1, Alexandria Durocorturom and the Islands being worth 0
You can do this yourself using overridden bonuses when creating the game.
3 - Place 2 Auto-Game rooms with 1v1 ( no cards ) and 2v2 format ( gift card only ), as I believe for new players , the city experience is already alot, mixing that with cards would make it too complicated, better leave that for after they already enjoy the game and want to spice it up
Auto-games would require dev (Fizzer) involvement. However, you can create the open games yourself when you want to play them or create and add these templates to Quickmatch to make them more visible and discoverable for new players in the order you suggest.

Anybody can create a game. You should send this to people who host the very strategic and skill-based City games rather than post on forums.

Good luck persuading Fizzer to change anything in this game, even if that would just mean adding auto-games.

Hello all,

First off, ty Dogamer for ur inputs as u are a high lvl player those come as a compliment :) ty!

To the other guys, I do create the game, and I just wondering how the community felt about those changes, this seems to be a game with greater potential, given that people actually play high RNG games such as AutoChess genre and such, a strategic game less based on RNG ( ofc a bit will always be present ) would come to look good into the eyes of the public

if anyone could get me the template of Imperium where u can block 2 spawn in 1 bonus plus capitals, that would already be of great start :D
