Change "Game Finder" back to normal

Postby jigger1986 on Wed May 25, 2011 4:54 pm

Concise description:
  • Change the way tournament games are found back to the drop down menu

Specifics/Details:
  • I think Ive gone into enough detail already, its very simple

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • It will likely appease the hundreds of CC players, Tournament Organizers and Clan leaders and members who are ready to revolt.

Thanks for your consideration

I would much rather have qwerts suggestion in place
I like the concept that they tried to do with the current system, and it seemed like a great idea in theory, but as of right now, the current way is just bad :(
rds is awesome!

why would you scroll for minutes?

you type the first letter and it took you to that part of the list. type 2, 3 or 4 letters and you may go straight to the tournament you are looking for.

the old system worked.

ahhh.. so the new one just removed the ability to see a list of choices before picking a specific one, which is important.

the old one had me typing the letters, every single time, and was a HUGE pageload...
the new one has me using autocomplete and i simply double tap in the box and see my last entry's. I select the right one and done. The only player who could get into trouble with this is highlander, because of the sheer number of tournaments, but other then that, its quite fine actually.

iPhone users could not type a few letters. You have / had to scroll for ages.
I love the new system, it takes 2 sec compared to ainute. Before heaven forbid I make a mistake and have to look up a tournament twice bcuz I hit a wrong button....:/

-1 to any changes to the new system.
