No, this is your misunderstanding. If the second scenario applies to the first 'bug' statement, then you are wrong. If you have one unit that does not need to retreat, then there is no action required to finish your turn. Your turn is already finished. So the bit "fail to inform me that one of my active games require me to open it to enter the action that will finish my turn" is wrong because there is no action required to finish your turn. Hence the Home Page does not say there is.



**** thank you ... so if i understand you that if the turn is 7 days and every one else finalize on day 3 that it will automatic finalize the game for me ( even though i have never finalized my active game which HOME & GAME page say NO but the active game page does say i need to finalize my 0 build or 0 retreat )

thank you for showing me that its a special feature and not a BUG

Where does it say you "need to finalize"?

...I think you have it now, but again your wording makes me think thee is still some confusion.

so if i understand you that if the turn is 7 days and every one else finalize on day 3 that it will automatic finalize the game for me

Not quite. I think you misunderstand what finalizing means. It means you are putting your hand up to say 'I am done with my actions so the turn can move on as far as I am concerned'. But a turn moves on when everyone who has an action says they are ready. Since you have no action, your vote is not required. You can finalize if you wish, but in all but the special exception case I mentioned it is a no-op. That is why the home page says
You need to finalize orders: NO
and the active games list says
Orders need finalizing: NO

Not finalizing is not holding anyone else up because you have no action. I think what you are pointing to is that on the Game Map page, if you go into the Orders tab it still has the option to finalize orders. You can do so if you wish, but you do not need to. So if you have no actions in a Retreat phase of 7 days and everyone with actions finalizes after three, the turn moves on; you have not been automatically finalized, your approval was not required.

I hope that helps. Finalzing can be a bit confusing, I know :)

Ok i think i got it

If i never enter active game that HOME & GAME pages does not flag as needing attention the active game will finish before deadline if all other player needing required attention finalize thier moves

So if only act if red flags on HOME page … that sound great and quicker … thanks
