Raid replay!

Once I get raided, I want the ability to watch the attackers defeat (or not defeat) me. It would immensely help with outpost defender placement strategy, not to mention it would clarify which walls/barriers completely hide my defenders and which allow my survivors to crouch behind.

Who's with me?!?

    This is exactly what the outpost is missing

    I have had this same thought and think this is do-able. I don't know about a full graphical replay (like a video of the raid), that might be too resource intensive. But I think something akin to the system used in online chess games, where a record of moves and actions could be replayed on a 2-D screen like the existing setup screen for outpost maps could be programmed and implemented relatively easily.

    That'd be great. But it would make raiding for influence harder tho.

    Yeh I would love to have this. I sometimes get beat by lvl 17s and i want to know how they managed that seeing as I hardly ever lose to anything under lvl 19.

    Personally, I'm against a replay. People are already jerks and block the tg or want to kill your defenders when there's a clear path. People don't need an extra lift to be douchey. My influence is higher than it needs to be bc I have to kill my way to the tg far too often and if people want to get full visual of how to be even more annoying abt it I'm against it.
    I final shot to show to show injured the Raiders and our defenders ended up I'm all for. But giving ppl a leg up on how to block FREE tg is not kool.
    ...I'm probably in the minority. :neutral:

    I'm with you "bsgper". Crates are hard to get. And raids are the only way to get them.

    @aGunner you do challanges though, right? Cause you do get tg there. But still... it's free tg don't block it!

    I'm against blocking the TG too. I go for the draw more times than I would like. Also, I literally have my TG out on a silver platter but people still decide to kill me anyways. I just want to see how. Easy access to TG and replay aren't necessarily going against each other.

    I would love a way to know the effect of my new defenders position or team composition in my Outpost.

    How the match took place ?
    What were the opponent's moves to win or fail ?
    What were my AI defenders moves ? Maybe I thought the match would go a way it isn't in reality, how the AI "thinks".
    Did I make a huge positioning error I didn't see ? Like a scout in static mode ?!

    I think the best way to accomplish that would be the possibility to watch a replay of a previous match on a video or better, an interactive match where you can only push a next round button to see actions slowly.

    It shouldn't be difficult as you only save rounds, positions and moves in database temporarily.

    Sometimes I would like to allow ppl to see how stupid their placement/setup is, cause if they block TGs and you can still get them and kill all defenders without single scratch, it is quite funny for me. But allowing ppl to see their mistakes will lead to harder influence gains and also TGs will not "flow" as freely as they flow now. So I dont understand why so many ppl asking for replay.
    Try to be clever and prepare your outposts. If it doesnt work, try to find your mistakes or change your setup. As "endgame" player, I was able to find myself great strategy that allows ppl to get TGs and if they want to lower my influence(and raise theirs) they have to bring real killers(and still have hard time). I was winning 3-4 out of 5 raid defences(agains those who wanted influence) with my setup and now as I want to drop a bit, I placed survs from free calls, so ppl can defeat them easily. But once I´ll fall dawn enough, I´ll put my strong defenders back. Some raids are already hard enough, dont ask NG to make them even harder as that is the only thing that will happen if you will gat yours replays.

    It's absolutely stupid how slanted raids are against the defense. I win about 29 out of 30 raids, usually without a scratch, and I lose about 9 out of 10 defenses, 4 out of 5 if I have my a-team on defense.

    Unlike people who spend every waking hour doing this (or spend money), I get to play for maybe ten minutes a day. I'm never going to have 50 level 20 tank walkers to soften up the raiders. Instead, I choose to have the bare minimum walkers because they're only good for helping to charge up the raiders. Very VERY rarely do defending walking have any effect on one of my raids, even when there are a bunch of level 20 walkers.

    Replay would help level the playing field. If you're crying because raiding would be harder, be happy about all the points you'll get for killing raiders.

    @jattilah not a single person is crying about it so calm down. Next, not everyone is interested (desperate) in killing defenders over and over. My influence is already too damn high bc too many jerks block. Which means it's even harder for me to do outposts in general bc too often I have to kill.
    Well made points have alreay been made on why this suggestion is not kool.

    Unless they have a dance off at the end, I'm good........ I don't need to see it, don't want to know. What happens in outhouse can stay in outhouse. :)

    A dance off would be really kool though. They need more fun in the apocalypse! Like Wednesday night dance off. Thursday is spaghetti night.

    @bsgper4 then just let your influence go down or bail on a raid every now and then! No one is preventing you from doing that. If you want your influence to stay in a sweet spot, make it happen, dont whine about it.
    I hate raiding...i just do it for the TG but even that is not possible cuz of the TG blocking jerks.
    @jattilah really? If i see the TG blocked and try to go for the kill, i usually end up severely injured or dead! Mind giving me some tips? :)
    My defense is not much better haha. I'm always changing it up.

    Spaghetti night? If only someone would bring me a pasta-maker....
  • bsgper4bsgper4 Member Posts: 309
    @avengers please choose your words carefully. I haven't whined about a damn thing. I've made a point against a topic. You're obviously not reading the words on the page carefully either and since I've already made my point twice dictating the whys amd hows (as have others), I'm not doing it again. My point stands.
    Chances of this happening are slim anyhow.

    @mabiki uh oh. Sashas probably gonna get pretty ticked if we keep talking about pasta makers. She's dealing with more important matters I suppose. ie. Dead boyfriends ex girlfriends.

    Unlike most people here, I actually want to play the game and be challenged,not play farmvile.

    Similar to this suggestion, I suggested we be able to scrimmage our own outpost to see how things would play out.

    And you really needed to necro a thread that is about two months old for that? :#

    Doesn't matter how long ago I started this, I still want it to happen!
    Allowing us to see a replay doesn't make it easier for people to block TG.if people are gonna be jerks, they are gonna be jerks. It's easy enough to figure out where to put survivors if you want to block TG.
