Re: Multiple games running at the same time..

i usually have about 120 and have not had a problem. i scroll through and select 10 or 20 at a time, say all the classic or AoR:Magic games, play them and then select another bunch.

Seems like a hassle to me. I would get lost as to which ones to play and not play. I like my idea better. :) I run about 100 games at a time.

your idea no matter how great you or i think it is will not happen any time soon, if at all. you will just have to put up with that one game you left always popping up or find a work-around like i have.

I like this idea. I will often pick out the "one on one" games or the quicker to play games first. That way, I won't leave someone more or less waiting for me to finish waiting while I take 15 minutes on Waterloo. I also tend to play all of one map consecutively, which means I stay in the same strategy "tack" more or less.

Granted, I can always just go into My Games and pick the correct game, but this feature would be nice.


A problem I can forsee -- if you forget that you "skipped" a game, you might end up deadbeating. I would therefore suggest it go to the bottom of the
ACTIVE games -- maybe add one second or one minute to the last active game on the timer, for example. OR, have it reset automatically when you leave "my games"/ log out of CC.

I stated this game would go to the back the ready to play games. Not all your total games. I do not see how you could deadbeat...

Perhaps another way around this... is a "skip this game in "next"" sort of check..

Often I will click "play next game" and it might be a doubles, or a tournament, or a some game for some reason that at that second I don't want to play, If I could click something that would mark it off (for this turn only) as "looked at but not played" and skip to the next game, and keep playing through that would be great... Only at the end of all games would the "jump to next game" come back to this one... or I could access it through the "my games" folder.

I like running through game at a time and the jump to next game button is -great- but if it had just this one small option (perhaps sitting next to "Begin turn" is a button that reads "Come back to this game" which will take you to the next game, and put a little check against this one to not be the "next game" even if it's got the lowest time).

I don't think it would be a massive code job, and it would be really neat and remove the only problem the "jump to next playable game" has.

I would all be for a Skip button or pass button. Just something when I click next it does not keep bringing me back to a game I do not wish to play at this time.

"Mark as Viewed" Games

Postby Natewolfman on Tue Nov 04, 2008 9:47 am

Concise description:
  • A "Mark as Viewed" button in games so when you click the handy dandy 'jump to your next playable game' button, you can skip games you want to

Specifics:
  • Next to the "begin turn" link, add a check box to allow a player to skip over this game when they click on "jump to your next playable game"

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • it will allow for faster movment in between games when you have already decided to skip a game for now (example: team games and you want to wait for advice from a partner)

I like it!
There are a LOT of reasons to skip a game.
Waiting for advice (as you mentioned), having time only to play a few quick turns right then, wanting to take your 1v1 or "real time" game turns first, etc.
I have even had a couple of games where one player had to be out for a day... the rest of us agreed to just postpone our turns a bit (sequential) so there would be no misses.

This would hurt nothing and would add a lot!

OK, so when the game is marked as viewed at what point will "jump to next playable game" start working properly again?

Let's say I mark a particular game as viewed and then use "jump to next playable game" to play all my other turns. What happens when I've played all those ? Does it just revert to the My Games page? If so I can see this feature encouraging me to miss turns ...

I think "Mark as viewed" should put this game to the end of your list...

So once your games that are not viewed are done - then it starts to cycle through the "viewed" games again (in order of time waiting)

I like this feature too.

I reckon this would fit nice in a plugin/addon (BOB maybe?)

Not nicely codeable... would require prior knowledge of the My Games screen at all times.

***Edited after reading next comment***
LIke the idea of putting the skipped game to the bottom of the queu.

EXCEPT, I would like to also see a time-based warning. (maybe a speed-game type PM alert) saying "warning, you have less than one hour to take your turn ...")
