Old topic, however.

During set-up a summary of your opponent's Win/loss ratio, recent form, team preference, [recent] concedes/disconnects, number of times played today, average turn time etc would be useful/interesting. Hard to implement though, I'm sure.

Even the stats from the opponent's last game would suffice.

It's only a very small convenience related suggestion but: being able to set up and save some defensive [and offensive] formations in the Team Management area would be nice.

In essence, the provision of a new tab that takes you to a "training ground", allowing you to tinker with set-ups to your heart's content.

If you could also "set-up" against a dummy team and see the impact of your line-up, like the position of the guard piece[s] affect on blocks etc, that would be especially cool.

I know you can play friendly games against yourself to do this [to some extent] but if the above would be possible, surely it would be a benefit?

Something that could be completely optional to implement into leagues: having the ability to change how long individual players/teams have to complete their turns.

So player A might have 2 min turns while their opponent player B has 3 min turns. In theory this is a handicap to player A.

Perhaps this could be implemented in a couple of ways.

Firstly, you could make it part of the inducements, which would obviously/potentially aid those teams at lower TV. It would be a costly inducement but worth it...a player who is rushing their turns may make more mistakes and give the underdogs more of a chance. They might not but the option would be there.

Secondly, you could make the duration of turns inherently linked to actual races. So in a league where this was implemented, for example, ALL dwarf teams would get 2 min turns, ALL Wood Elves teams 2 1/2 mins, ALL Vampires/Goblins/Halflings teams 3 mins.

Some teams do require more thought to play [not a dig!] and in a handicap system they should perhaps have more time to do so. So in a mirror match both dwarf teams would be playing 2 min turns and the inducements would still be in place to aid the lower TV team.

Dwarves v Vampires would be 2 mins v 3 mins, and so on.

This would be a fundamental shift I appreciate and would require much thought/effort to implement.

100% agree that the goblin roster needs filling out. And agree that a few more cosmetic choices would be nice. One Troll face is not enough. An additional Troll with a lolling tongue looking really stupid would be appropriate.
