Re: When starting a new game: A comment Box

I think the idea is there so that you DO pay premium to have speed games :)

To have better luck I suggest going into Live Chat and asking in callouts if anyone was interested in a RT game, or PM the players that set up their own 1v1's

I like this idea...it would be good if there was some way to indicate you are looking for a RT game...

personally I dont look for RT 1v1 games...not a Freemium (and porbably never will be...love this site to much)
and also dont like playing 1v1 games that much but I can see that this would be a useful tool for players limited to 4 games..

most time when Freemiums need to find a RT game they will have to go into Live Chat Callouts and look for one but there are a few sharks in there just waiting for gullible players to eat up...

So this would be a good idea to allow Freemiums to set-up there own games and know they should get a RT game out of it...

unfortunately if it ever those get implemented it will be 3/4 years from now and it would probably only be available to Premium members... :(

a better idea is maybe start a thread in Callouts forum looking for other players who will play RT games and build a mailing list of your own also PM a few other active Freemiums that play a lot of 1v1 games to see if they are interested and add them to your mailing list and then when you want to play RT game just PM all the names you have gathered and...............sure you know the rest.....

or pay for Premium and play speed games.... :D ....I recently won a year Premium so am covered till late 2013 and am in the final of a inter Clan tourney with a year Premium as the prize, so if I win I will gifted it to you....cross your fingers..

Opening up the game label box wouldn't necessarily be a bad idea, but as others pointed out: I don't think the site is interested in making it easier for freemiums to play what is really the only type of game currently reserved for premiums. There are already ways around it, but you can never be guaranteed to play RT games as it stands now.

This site only costs $25 per year and already gives away the ability to play in nearly every game. I like this as it keeps the player numbers up, but I'm not sure they should be helping to give away more than they are now.

Found what I was looking for: https://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewt ... 1&t=143590

That suggestion is for premium members only and got put in rejected for some reason. People wanted it though. The poll says 13-0 right now.


I find it hilarious how this thread that you linked and the other thread that I linked in the thread you linked were both moved to rejected without any explanations from the mods.

Cherry pepsi? wrote:Being a free member (which I have been a premium, but unfortunately can't afford it right now), I have set up many 1v1 games where I'm hoping that the person will agree to an RT. I do know that there is callout forums, and a callout section in the live chat to try to find other willing players to play a game, and maybe a RT. But I feel like maybe there should be a comment box where you can mention a comment like "Looking for an RT" or "Looking for a good game" "Good luck playing against me", or something short. It could be like an optional introduction of what type of person people are going to be playing.

I know there's plenty of flaws in this. But I thought it'd be worth suggesting. What are your guys's thoughts. Has someone thought of this before?


I think its a great idea,you are only stating a preference for rt,and no-one would be penalised if they reneged.

I think that the idea with the redesign of the suggestion forum is that no idea would sit in the main forum forever. The apparent process seems to be that ideas either achieve the necessary level of discussion/consensus/support/whatever to get moved to Submitted, or they get kicked out after being inactive for long enough. Right now the oldest suggestions in the main forum were last posted in in January 2012, so periodically inactive topics must be being swept out. The problem there is that they are being moved to the rejected bin as it is the only other place. A change should be made. Either inactive ideas that don't have a good reason to actually be rejected should be allowed to stay in the main forum forever, or a new "Archived Suggestions" area should be created were inactive "abandoned" threads could be sent. Ideally any posts in an archived thread should (automatically?) bring it back to the main forum were it can have another go at getting the necessary discussion to be Submitted or properly Rejected. (While you are at it, all the old threads that were improperly moved to rejected during the forum revamp should be moved there as well.) Somebody want to make a suggestion on the idea?

Already talked about this is another thread (it's in the suggestions forum somewhere) about this. Basically, the admins didn't want to make another subforum for what this subforum was already for. I guess you could just not move things to rejected when they aren't actually stupid ideas... At least don't do it without making a post saying that it is going to be moved to rejected shortly if there isn't more support.

The negatives against a comment box (or a private game label) is that it'd probably add to C&A policing or more coding (such as a disciplinary tool to restrict people from using it if they use it for bigotry or flaming, etc.

I like the idea of in general, but as April Fools admin menu has shown (or the old Feedback system, or game chats or forum posts), if you give people an area to type things, it usually adds to the overall policing that has to be done.

So create a check box that indicates the game starter is looking for an RT game and place the tag where the labels are currently.

Preface: As I indicated earlier, I don't really care if this idea goes through. But if it does ....

I think it should just be an open text field. I imagine people will come up with plenty of uses for it (beyond abuse, discussed below). For example, I'd bet you'd see "Majors or above only, please" or "Please teach me this map" or "I dare you ..." or plenty of other things that imaginative players could come up with. Don't limit the tool just because there might be some problems with it.

Andy, I don't know the details about what you're talking about with April Fools, but I would imagine that those users did not know that whatever they typed in would then be publicly posted at the bottom of the page. I don't see this as as much of a risk for a game label box that everyone knows will be seen by everyone.

People who use this feature to abuse can be dealt with through the existing punishment mechanisms. I don't think it will be overly taxing on the C&A mods to simply apply the same rules that they apply in other forms of communication that can be used for abuse, whether they are forums, live chat, game chat, PM and wall.

Sure, some of that communication can be stopped (e.g. a forum ban), but other forms we just rely on the admins to warn or boot players who cross the line. So, I'm not sure that there is a reason that technical measures (like a Game Label Box ban) would be necessary to implement this suggestion.

99.999% (maybe more?) of users will never use this for inflammatory purposes. No need to curtail the suggestion on account of such an small minority of users.

I agree with everything that agentcom said.

We give people threads, PMs, and gamechat to type in. I don't think a label is much more.

I remember seeing threads like this before, and the reasons they were rejected were the same reasons people want them implemented:

1) Advertising RT games - the site has no incentive to make a premium-only feature more accessible to non-paying members.
2) "Majors and above only", etc - this has been suggested and rejected as a feature, as adding limits on public games could make it less appealing to new members. There's a callouts forum for that.
