Hi I am having issues with it allowing me to use my scout to scout a new providence.

There are three stages for scouting
  • When you scout a province, several nearby provinces will show a padlock and a price
  • When you scout an ADJACENT province, then the padlock will disappear
  • If you have enough Coins to scout the unlocked province, then you'll be able to easily read the price, and you can scout that province simply by clicking on it
You do have to be careful. You should never have more than a couple of scouted but unacquired provinces, because the subsequent cost/difficulty of acquiring that province depends of the Advanced Scouting Technology that you had WHEN YOU SCOUTED the province, rather than when you acquired it, so it's unwise to use scouting to dump your excess coins.

Has Elvenar ever done anything about being able to cancel or stop a scout? I would have liked to either cancel or stop a scout to give myself more time due to accidentally clicking on something I did not want to and now the scout will reach before I want him to. I know this was brought up previosly but have never seen whether it has been considered or not.

Look about 1/2 way down this thread for a post from ex-team member.

The beta forum ideas section seems to have some active review and a process of sorting through ideas. We are waiting for this one to receive a poll, you can bet it will get a fast 20 votes when it does.

On the scouting note -- any way (besides clicking on it) to know how long it will take to scout?

No. You won't know how long it will take until you start the scout. This is also something that has been requested.
