I think that is the shit!!!!!!
A label that states game speed, so that people have an expectation before entering into that type of comitment. Thats when it would be idea to have some type of instant mssger for voting actions on other players that are dead beats.

private games

Lack, what about the idea of having an option to put password protected games, meaning if I start a game but want only certain people to join(people I can PM), this decreases the chance of playing in a game with multies/cheaters that might jump into a newly created game right away...it could be an option when you create a new game?

A further note on that: if you want to play a game with a specific person, it's HARD to get into the same game unless you both are on at the same time. I hosted a game last night waiting for my brother, and the game was full and started 30 minutes later (and it was six player at that!). Hard for people who want to play together but whose internet schedules are not synchronized.

If I recall correctly Lackattack has stated that this is high on his priorities. I believe he also said it would be a feature of the proposed "premium accounts" but I may have that wrong.

password protected games

Postby rabin on Thu Feb 23, 2006 3:51 pm

I think I have already mentioned this, but was wondering if there was an update? Essentially there would be an OPTION when you create a game if you want it password protected(you create the password). This enables you to just ask your friends to play instead of creating a game and some random people jumping in as soon as they see a new created game. You could also post in these forums the password as not everyone checks the forums...the main goal of this is really to eliminate the MULTI effect, which I personally feel can easily get out of control. In an older on-line RISK site I used to play at, they had this option and it really seemes to please the regulars who felt that random people were quickly jumping into their games, and then not playing at all, or multi accounts joing the same games cause they were able to.

Youc na do that now but only if you have Premium membership but everyone should be able to do it
Its not premium worthy feature and people wont get premium just to password protect thier games

If it wasn't for passwords I probably wouldn't have bought my premium membership as quickly as I did.

$20/year is a cheap price to pay so that my friends and I can play private internet based games.

password games

Postby Scarus on Thu Feb 23, 2006 7:04 pm

I also snapped up the premium membership primarily so we could use passwords to protect our friendly games from all the rank hungry, abusive players that seem to have sprung up from the woodwork here.

There are now private games open to all xiGAMES members who are all prescreened, and agree to play with honor and respect. Play fun games where you have a fair chance and there are no deadbeats or abusers. Check out xiGAMES.
