  • Adding the feature to name games

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.

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.

I don't support this. The whole point is to easily distinguish tournament games from others. If you want a way to delineate real time and normal time games, there are far better ways to do it. If the ability to label games is given to everyone it will be abused.

So how would you suggest it be done? Post in the forums that about 20% of players look at? Or maybe I should just send out mass PM's when I decide to make mass public games, saying "THIS IS NOT A RT DON'T JOIN IT THINKING SO"?

Please, tell me of these many ways I can tell people it's not a RT before they join, and without mass PMing them or posting in a Callouts forum that few look at.

Well, if I have time I'll expound later, but opening up game labels to all players is not the answer. That I can assure you.

WHY CAN'T WE PUT A NAME ON GAMES?

Postby Jippd on Thu Feb 19, 2009 7:10 pm

This would be helpful for speed games. IE if I want to play with someone that is going to play RT, I can say that in the game title. Or if I higher rank player wants to play with say a LT and above only etc etc. It would be advantageous. Thoughts?
