Game Limits - For a Happy Life by Reducing Partner Frutration


Concise description:
  • Players can have a special password (which their partner can use) to set the limit of the number of public games they can have waiting at any one time.

Specifics/Details:
  • This measure would ensure players don't over-commit on joining games.
    The limit would need to apply just to public games to prevent problems from invitations for tournaments and clan wars.
    Players can opt in, otherwise they have the usual limit of waiting games.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Players would not risk being overburdened with too many games.
    Players could maintain a better life-CC balance and therefore enjoy both more.
    Some players may have a little more time for the forums.

    Fewer players would blame CC for relationship break-ups or job loss.

I think that players are going to have to limit themselves. There is already a 50 game limit.
