lancehoch wrote:reuben, they are saying to change the time that you have to remain active so as to not drop the game. This is different from the turn length. Currently if you have a speed game in your "Awaiting Players" list, you must refresh a page on CC every 5 min to stay in the game. If you do not, then CC automatically kicks you from the game. lack is thinking about changing that requirement to 15 min.

Personally, I do not think that it will matter too much. What a lot of people do at this point is open a different, active speed game in another tab. The games refresh every 10 seconds, so you do not have to worry about refreshing your browser.



:roll: oops... I got it the wrong way... It's probably because when I had the chance to play speed games, I took advantage of it and refreshed a lot, if I wasn't In a game at the time... I guess then that the offer is good, because it don't make the game longer all together...
I have another question about speed games then: If someone is waiting for a game to fill up, is he stays in the game waiting list if he logs out??? As I see it as long as player logged in, he/she won't deadbeat, and that is the only thing that matters I guess... might be wrong of course

I believe that if you log out you are kicked from waiting, but I am not 100% positive. I do not play speed games often.

you're right, if you log out, you are kicked from waiting speed games. I assume it will be kept the same way.

Done!

If you logout or your session is idle for more than 15 minutes you will be automatically dropped from any waiting speed games.

How about changing the amount of time for actually starting your turn in a speed game. Say if you had only 1 or 2 minutes to START your turn, then when you hit begin, that's when the 5 minute clock starts.

It's not very "speedy" when people join 6 or 7 speed games at once and the clock runs 3 or 4 minutes before they show up to take their turn each time.
