More than 10 games [Done]

Postby Itrade on Tue Jan 10, 2006 3:31 am

Why do we only have a max of 10 games at a time? I think we should have as many as we can be active in. I figure that the more games I'm in the bigger the chance of me having a turn when I check up on the site.

So yeah,
Itrade.

Another idea would be to take armies off your list once you lose or surrender, since it really doesn't make any sense to keep them. On games w/ 5 or 6 players, that game could linger for a very long time before disappearing.

Just a thought.

I'm sorry to dissapoint you guys (except for Spartacus who will love it) but I just lowered the maximum to 5 games.

Bandwith and diskspace use is growing exponentially, and I need to buy time to figure out a better webhosting solution without closing the door to new players.

Don't worry, I'll find a way to have unlimited games, but for now I have to focus on other improvements.

Besides, if you play too many games, you'll get sick of Conquer Club :cry:

There's no such thing as too much of a good thing. I mean who doesn't want to take over the world several times a day?

Would taking the games you've lost off of your active list help?

Not really. It's the game log that hogs disk space and the game screen that hogs bandwith.

Perhaps you should find a better way of showing where troops are instead of having a new picture imposed over the map each time, or is that impossible?

EDIT: Oh yeah, Lack, how are you paying for the site ATM? I can't find any ads or premium sections on the site. It's the best risk site out there (The rest have army limits in a country or require you to play your turn in a minute or something) and I think it's gonna get much more popular very fast.

Well, there is that one thing for slashdot.org on the first page, but I'm not sure if it's an ad.

The more games I have the shorter the wait between turns will be and the more conquer club I can have. I love Risk. Plus at the moment I'm only mildly flooded with schoolwork so I can put my mind on other things.
