Feature request : spy timelimit

Recommended Posts

I think spy's are very imbalanced, because they give such a huge advantage (talking about barracks and warfactories) the whole game.

Is there a possibility to make spy-effects timebound, like 5 minutes free promotions for units and then normal units again?

Or - make a button to provide spys to both parties?

the first one no not at all possible. the second would be relatively easy to put into a map via ini editing.

Maybe your post can encourage so called allied players to actually start making spies, because it really is a powerful unit :)

In 1on1 matches, spies are balanced. 1on1 matches don't go on for too long, and the spies are part of the special dynamic of sovs vs. allies.

 

However, in these 6/8 player FFG's these days, spies are pretty annoying/imbalanced. The problem is, the allied players immediately take advantage of the lesser skilled opposing player, spy the shit out of him, and all the sudden have 10 minutes to sit in their base creating veteran units while you try to overcome it. 

I don't think there is a way to correctly balance it without ruining parts of the game, it is what it is.

Why do you keep my posts which are about the multiplayer dialog settings hidden?

Please at least explain to me on a private message why you didn't add them all.

u name it prep!

Most of the times I play FFA's on large maps and I see exactly the behaviour you mentioned. I thought a time limit could be a good walkaround, so you don't have disadvantages in relative short 1on1s and still don't have the game destroyed for longer FFAs.

Maybe the shortest and best walkaround for me personally is to change the unit stats via ini edit, as mcpwny mentioned.

But I think this is a general issue, depending on the game mode.

I think it'd be kinda nice to play FFG's without spies. 

Having an option to turn spys off would solve this real quick. I'd bet a lot of hosts would use it too. Problem usually occurs on sedona pass, Hammer and Sickle,or the infinite money maps. It really ruins the game and all it takes is one person to exploit it out of the 6 or 8 players.

Maybe people should stop playing the infinite money maps then?

Yeah a spy button would be nice. I just did a new version of my map as a workaround, ty mcpwny for inspiration.

Just edit the map you play on. In my mod, I made the barracks and wf immune to spies, but I reduced their cost to 800 to compensate.
