Here is another topic where a similar discussion is going on. http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=82621
EDIT: Hmm, that link is broken, maybe the topic got moved or merged.

skip game

Postby Mr_Adams on Fri May 08, 2009 11:29 pm

alows game to be skipped in the list of games, so that when you hit "next playable game" it doesn't take you back to the top.


Specifics:

will allow you to put off a turn until a later time, without having to manual go around it to play the rest of your turns. This would be useful only in freestyle games, but would be much appreciated by those like me with 50 ongoing freestyle escalating. just have to click a tick box "skip game" and the game will be ignored when hitting "next playable game" could have option reset itself every hour or so, and would make playing those long day-by-day games more pleasent.

Would also be beneficial when you have that first game you just want nothing to do with because you KNOW you're going to lose and just dread ending the turn :lol:

Looks just like this suggestion by Brucewar tbh. I suggest moving the discussion there (and/or merging of the threads).

Sounds like a good idea I might add.

Go to next game button

Postby neanderpaul14 on Fri Dec 25, 2009 4:09 am

Concise description:
  • Have a "Go to next game" button.

Specifics:
  • Next to the "Begin Turn" button have a "Go to next game" button that will skip over the current game for now and send you one down your games list from the one you are currently on.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • This would prevent people from having to constantly return to the my games page if they come up to games they don't wish to take a turn in at the moment.
  • I believe this would greatly enhance the playability of the site, and probably wouldn't be that hard to implement.

Man that always annoys me when I have to go to my games to skip a few games I don't want to take my turn in, then I have to keep going back there. Implement it quick smart...

Interesting idea, could be useful. I think I'd use it probably.

Agreed X 100!!!

I could have used this 50 times today. I'm in a Quads Manual game and I'm waiting to hear back from my team on where to deploy. I have to go to My Games each time and select the next game down the list. There has to be an easier way!

:oops: Until this suggestion, I didn't ever notice the link to go to the next game. I always click my games and then the next game I want to play.

Jump to Next Playable Game improvement

Postby vodean on Tue Apr 27, 2010 2:21 pm

Concise description:
  • add function to jump to nextplayable game
  • keep old "jump to most urgent playable game" function.

Specifics:
  • This will enable skipping over games, so that if you have to wait for a teammate, you don't have to go to "my games" and then the next game.
  • this will not encourage one-game dead-beaters, because a function will be added to make sure that people who repeatedly miss turns will be given vacations

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • makes site navigation easier
  • makes site more comprehensible
