PBEM concerns


Recommended Posts


Is it just me or are others concerned about

the PBEM and replaying a turn until you get

a desired result?

I just started 2 PBEM games and now realize that

one can keep playing turns over and over again

until you get a desired result and/or find out

the placements of your opponents units.

I am not sure if there is a way to solve this.

Your thoughts?

There is a solution. You make sure the seed values used for the combat resolution are saved with the turn. That way, replaying the same turn will produce very similar results.

Uncommon Valor uses this for that very reason, and I can tell you that I initially had a lot of trouble testing concepts and such because the turns would play out so similar that it was uncanny.
