Game Labels [Poll]

Postby Inhuman14 on Thu Aug 21, 2008 10:06 am

Concise description:
  • Adding the feature to add game labels for all games.

Specifics:
  • Provide the availability to add game labels to all games, not just tournament games.
  • This could be a premium only feature or could be something available to everyone.
  • If implemented, nothing will need changed with the interface of the game creation page.
  • It would be a good idea to make the label able to be edited.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • This will allow users to create games for specific purposes, looking for certain opponents, teammates, or experience levels.
  • Labels apart from tournament games will also allow groups of people who play games together, to label non-sanctioned mini tournaments and clan wars and other group games.
  • People would be able to search games with specific labels to find players they want to play against.
  • If implemented, a possible issue could be that people may put inappropriate things in the game label. This would create more work for disciplinary mods.
  • Another issue is that people may get upset if someone joins their game even though the label requests a different type of player.

Specifics:
  • Basically a section when creating games to add a name. This much is optional, but I have a hard time finding a game I want to see if it just has a number string. With game names, this would be easier, and it would also allow older members to request "no noobs". It wouldn't stop all of them from joining, but it might prevent a new recruit to join in the last spot in a quadruples game.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Gameplay

As you can currently add a label for Tournament games, I think it should be a premium only feature

I agree, that sounds like a premium only type of feature. It doesn't affect gameplay, but is a little convenient.

but it could affect gameplay, as you could specify ranks (although it wouldn't necessarily be enforced)

Exactly - It doesn't have to be followed, and I know a lot of people quit when a new recruit joins their game anyways. Why not give those top players a better chance to avoid that and have them advertise for good players?

I like playing 1v1 but speed games are often too much of a commitment, as I tend to just walk away from my computer to do whatever (like getting coffee), no matter what I'm doing. I could use this to make casual 1v1 games and alert freemiums that it won't be played real time.

Good idea, I hope it gets done =D>

Would the game name need to be unique? or could you have similar names for lots of games?

I think it should be the latter - as the game number is unique.

Right, I was thinking it would be like the "Game Label" option (but it only works on tournament games), and yes, you can have the same name on more than one game.

Yeah, unique names would be incredibly annoying for the player. the game number already gives the game individuality.

if you can rename tournament games...why not name regular games?

Lets do it!

I would like this.

However not on the game finder, like "game name:"

This would HAVE to be for premiums only because it could be used for abuse from frees naming it: "real time game"

What do you mean there? What would be wrong with free peeps from naming "Real Time"? I'm probably just having a blonde moment...

Realtime games are not Sanctioned as a game style, so they shouldn't be labeled as such

I still believe that this should be a Premium only feature, even if RT was a game type

Tournament Game Label Available for ALL Games

Postby Kotaro on Wed Jan 21, 2009 1:51 pm

Concise description:
  • When making tournament games, you are given the Optional choice of adding a Game Label to the title. For tournaments, this allows you to sort by "Round 1, Round 2", or whatever else you want. However, my idea would be to allow all games the ability to add these titles.

Specifics:
  • Normally, it says "Tournament Game: (Game Label or Lack of)". Adding the labels of "Public Game: (Game Label)" to all public games.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Allowing for people to declare whether or not their games are RT, making cool titles for challenges outside of Tournaments (Clan Challenges, regular Callouts against people), as well as allowing people to put "Real Time" or "Not Real Time" in their labels, so people know what to expect and can filter appropriately.
