Invite Players within Start A Game Menu

Postby Ickyketseddie on Fri Jan 06, 2012 7:14 am

Concise description:
    Have fields available when making a new game to invite players to your game instead of doing so induvidually from the awaiting players tab.

Specifics/Details:
    When creating team games (or standard games for that matter), from the Start A Game menu, if you want to start a few games it's a bit of a pain inviting a team to your side as you have to hit several screen to invite each player, so if your starting several games as many of us do it is a little annoying. If possible, when starting a new game and you have selected the number of players you want in the game, and the game format, you get the invite option at the bottom to enter player names into boxes, or use your friends drop down list as you would induvidually as it currently is. Then on hitting submit the game is created and invites are sent together.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
    Just a comman sense observation to make the site a little quicker/simpler. This also stops people joing your team before you've had a chance to invite those you want to play with.

Having a random fill your game before you invite someone is very annoying. Also skillful on the part of a person who can join your game in the 10 seconds it takes to change screen and invite someone.

Im suprised this has not been suggested and implemented sooner....
Im foeing to get medals, unless your 1 of the 6 people who will remain on my list, message me if you want a game.

I believe the TO group has been discussing this as well. I know I would love this and make tournaments so much easier to run!

Not really many extra tools. Just the ability to create tournament games.

I do support this. I didn't say anything because it's been suggested before and generally has a lot of support. Especially with TOs.

I think this could be implemented at some point, but who knows when that might be.

+1

I'm actually going to sticky this. We're hoping to get some invitation updates this year. So, let's see if we can push this forward.

Which one? While this suggestion is closely related to some other invite suggestions in submitted and may very well be covered in the same update as some of them it is still technically a different idea.
