In team games, your teammate can still attack you without your consent.

When I host team games, teammates attack me anyway. It defeats the purpose. Can you program the game so team on team attacks have to be approved by teammates so people don't backstab anyway?

No.

That would just needlessly complicate things, for example in multi-day games, when your teammate has sent in their orders and won't look at the game until next turn. Or in real-time games, where it basically just adds another possible delay that might get someone booted and frustrate everyone.

There is a better solution: don't play with idiots. There's prereqs and a blacklist function; use those.

It could also be bad because additional time of acceptance atack could make you boot. I dont realy see point of doing what you are proposing. I mean i understand your point but also your proposal could make game worst.

i agree, use prereqs and black list, any idiot that attacks their teammate when its not obvious that they should will have pretty crappy stats

⍣Gnullbegg⍣, the people you described who "won't look at the game until next turn" are the real idiots. That's terrible team playing. How are you supposed to coordinate with someone like that?

Using prereqs and blacklists don't help either when dealing with people who join games on purpose with friends. A blacklist is only effective after you've encountered the person for the first time, but people who betray teammates are deliberately trying to get away with it once.

JUPITER, everything takes additional time of acceptance. What's your point?

yes, but in this case several players are dependent on each other to eb able to submit.... in a 3 days game if i only submit in the last day it is quite possible that others wont be around.

Once teammates pass above 1000 played games they will have to manually confirm an attack on an allied player. Otherwise it will just transfer.
In some cases where I wanted to attack it transfered, which is sort of annoying.

Just play with 1000 games minimum prerequistes and you won't find random noobs ruining the game by attacking you.
