OKay, I have coffee now. Fog of War was a concept to hide enemy movement and troops. Unless you bordered the enemies terts, you woud not be aware of how mnay troops they had or where.

There are several old threads on it. Never made it into production.

Then perhaps the brief should be updated to omit the line? Now "Fog Of War" seems obvious but I spent hours trying to figure it out. Well, OK, not hours but a good 20 minutes.... -ish.

Hopefully with the recode FOW will be an option on all maps, not only nukes. It is on other sites. If you look at the open games on CC, it's sometimes hard to find open games to join that aren't FOW. It's an interesting setting, but I wouldn't want to play it all the time.

I could see it in 1v1, kinda like Battleship. On multiplayers, i think the tendency would be to hunker down more than usual creating more stalemates and long games.

I would like sometimes FOW as Cardinals said, not allways as it seems to happen in CC for example, but Id prefer to have FOW giving a new meaning to each map, bofore to have new maps XD

How about Fog Of War but if you are commander class every game you get a Scepter Of Light that can be used on one single turn during the game. :)

Fog of war sucks imo, played it quite a bit elsewhere in the past & only like it once when I kicked everyone's butts, but how do you create strategies when you are "completely blind." Everyone always kept 1's on the front line, so you never knew what they had.

ba-hum-bug.

At the start of your turn you need to control both territories, Target and President/Premier depending on which side you are on. If you have them then you will get autodeploy on the warhead and you bombard from the warhead to opposing territories.

you also need troops all the way up the missile. careful how many you send up, you cant locate them elsewhere at the end of the turn like you can on the rest of the map. 1 way only.
