Live Chat = set up real time games

rejected.


live chat to set up rt games = time + effort most people don't want to give in = defeats the purpose of speed games


Then pay the $20 to eliminate the effort.

I support Speed games staying premium only. Lack needs to provide more incentive to get premiums to buy. Unlimited games, password protected, and now speed games (which are really unneccessary anyway...why tax the serves because the people who didn't want to buy a premium wanted a premium feature?

But freemiums don't even know whether speed games are fun or not. If they play a few and realise how go to they are then they might buy premium. Guys don't forget that this is a free site, it shouldn't be that premiums get everything and freemiums nothing.

freemiums can join tournies, get free games, if you get a select group of friends (not too hard, many clans are looking for people) you can get private games without paying 20$ when i was freemie for 3 months i got some speed games by posting a 1v1 and watching for the next 10 mins, if some1 joins it usually turns into a speed game ending the same day or so. thats without paying so freemiums can do stuff to get around the small restrictions the only thing you cant get around is the game limit.

Allow at Least 1 Speed Game per Free player

Postby turtlerobot on Sat Oct 08, 2011 3:31 pm

Concise description:
  • Allow speed games for free players

Specifics/Details:
  • I used to play a long time ago, and I lost my old account. Back then CC was growing really big, and I see now that growth has pretty much stopped. The reason is people dont have time to wait 24 hours and play 2 month games. If you allow free players to play at least 2 free games out of the 4, there will be much more activity on the site, and MUCH MORE CASUAL PLAYERS WILL PLAY

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Speed games = more casual players

    More casual players = more active players

    More active players = more referrals

    More referrals = more paying members

    More paying members = more money

You do realize that once new players notice they only got 1 free speed game, that are more than likely going to just create a new account to play another free speed game, yes?

You do realize that new players can still create more accounts if they want to play multiple games? The safeguards in place to prevent that abuse can be used in this situation as well.

And speed games will be so quick that the costs of risking their account will be too high vs the benefits they receive, especially since they have to relog in and out every 5 minutes.

Yeah, but they are just going to ditch the old account, leaving a ton of accounts taking up more space on the server. Freemium players usually keep it to 1 or 2 other accounts, not play 1 game, ditch, 1 game, ditch, 1 game, ditch.

And most games on this site aren't 2 months. A majority of the games I join, only take about 1-2 weeks, tops. If you are joining big games with settings that generally take a long time to finish, that's the users fault.

Also, many of the normal paying customers don't tend to like playing inexperienced players in speed games. That's why they join them, because you have a good chance that they will play experienced members (Minus the odd cook or cadet that joins).

I guess the suggestion is to allow them 1 speed game at the time, or 1 every hour or 1 every day,, not 1 and than thats it..

I don't get why we should. It takes away from the paying customer. Plus we do have times throughout the year when Freemiums can play speed games on certain maps.
