I agree 30 days is too long, but what are you suggesting the cut-off be? You say most users take turns daily. Are you indicating the cut-off should be 24 hours?

The shorter the better, but I dont feel 24 hours is fair enough.
Was hoping for some input from everyone to come to a good number.

5 days? 10 days?

I really dont know.

Keep in mind that players cannot be invited to games if they are not on the scoreboard and consider how this proposed change will affect that.

perhaps 10 days then....

My main concern is how to keep players from sitting on the top of the scoreboard, while not doing anything. .... how do we stop that?

I really dont know.

at worst, you could take your turn once in an 8 day period for 8-player games.

it would need to be at least 8. any cutoff period less than that could find you dropping off the scoreboard mid-game.

however you could still disappear from the scoreboard if you miss a turn, or 2. three times eight is 24 days.

IMO, 14 days sounds like a good number, long enough that you can take a short time off without being dropped, but shorter than the current timespan.

but drops you off the scoreboard if you miss a turn. this prevents you from being invited to games.

If you miss a turn mid game, you only need to play once to get back on. It is not 14 days + a finished game.

14 days sounds like a good compromise. 2 weeks is easy to remember.

EDIT:

While part of your suggestion aims to fix the top of the scoreboard, it affects everyone. One concern on CC's behalf is that the active members might drop significantly, which would look kind of bad, even knowing the reason why (which a lot of people might not). I don't think, therefore, having a scoreboard that more adequately reflects the current active users would be an implementable suggestion.

What if this suggestion were modified to only target the Conqueror title? For example, if you reached Conqueror, you have XX days (fewer than 30) before you lose the title due to inactivity. You remain on the scoreboard, but are only the highest field marshal, even though you have the most points.

14 days was talked about as a good number, but let me remind everyone of sequential Battle Royale games. I think sticking with 30 is a good number.
