5 Game Maximum / Game Dropping

Postby SagxaZefiro on Mon Jan 23, 2006 12:21 pm

moo1poo and I wanted to play a new game, so we surrendered out of a game we didn't care about, but we still cannot join the new game. We have "five" games that we are in, "four" of which we are still active in. I want to join a new game.

This could also go in the suggestions, but I felt it was more of a complaint. :P

hold on - you want to be able to spoil somebody else's game so you can have a new one? Doesn't seem like a good reason!

Well, then surrendering shouldn't be an option. :P

Mostly, if I lose a game, I want to be able to join another one. That's all I really care about.

The limit is 5 games, whether you care about all 5 or not.

And here is a little secret: In the future there will be an option for unlimited games and much more, called "Premium membership" :wink:

Should you be able to drop games after you have started?

I can not play another game until two of the other games that I surrendered in are finished. I can't wait for a game of six to end before I can play another game.

Hasn't this discussion been done to death? If this goes in it will make deadbeats look like pixie hamsters.

That's right.

Try. Try really hard.

For elaboration see the dozen other threads on this topic.

being eliminated and surrendering are equal.

play to win.

im in one 3 player game where the guy didnt take his card at the first attempt and surrendered.

now 1/3 of the world is white and the bloke im playing against has gone on holiday to Neptune.

This i find very funny :mrgreen:

I think that if someone is defeated from a game they should be able to join another game. It's no fun waiting for a bunch of slow games to finish so that you can join another.

joining new games

Postby joetalk on Tue Feb 07, 2006 4:39 am

Im with many others when i say that waiting for others to finnish there game when im out is not exactly fair :x :x :x :x :( :( :( :(
I respect what Lack has done and why, but my comment is have u taken into account that people like me loose alot and that having two or more games that im just watching instead of playing can be a real deterent from coming back as often, ( ha ya like you'll ever get me out of this site :P :arrow: :arrow: :wink: ) but it would be nice if game that ive been eliminated out of were taken off my play list.

Why the money?
A very bad player could get this and lose all his points fast
Or a very good player could get it and win everygame for the next week :shock:
That would be funny very funny

Hmmmmm, what happens when you don't have any points. Is the point system set up so there is a minimum amount of points you can have? I'd hate for the point calculator to have to divide by zero. With how often I lose I may be the first one there :)

Just remember going into negatives then beating a very high ranked player = one very unhappy player
