I think it's a great idea too. We already tried to create a thread to revamp the Game Finder/Start a Game pages and was completely ignored. Thus the major problem with this forum. So many great ideas that nobody pays any attention to and they just fall to the wayside.


No, it wasn't completely ignored. The graphic guru who was hired ended up having to leave unexpectedly soon after, so very few of those planned changes ever got implemented.

blake...the thread for fixing the pages was nothing more than moving the crap from the bottom to the top. Simple cut and paste. I'm just guessing that lack is using his iphone to edit the pages and thus can't use cut/paste......i dunno though.....

Hell...this idea is a simple cut/paste too...just move the one on the left to the right....

I agree. Sequential should be the default setting for a newgame.

Yeah, but this is one of those tedious things that could be done in 30-45 seconds.

I thought of it a long time ago too...but was like egh....it's so obvious there must be a reason it wasn't changed. Then I learned it's just too tedious.

Lack should get his own bitch, to do this kind of stuff for him


In if he's looking for one.

I agree entirely. I know there's enough support for it already, but I figured I could add my two cents as a bump 8-)

This will prevent most 1v1 noob farming. So just change it already, great suggestion.

Postby pookey on Sat Nov 08, 2008 9:59 am

Great idea, i am sure more seq games are created over freestyle so why not have seq as the default option??

And it is not only new players who do this, i am sure many people have created a freestyle game unintentionally.

There are a whole lot more sequential games. and I agree that it should be default. The one problem I see is this:

HASBRO has RISK, which is played sequentially. The freestyle play of ConquerClub is what set us apart.

Not sure if that is a huge problem, since both are there, but having the default start be something different from RISK might be a good thing.

How so? People who want to n00b farm can continue to do so, by setting up a macro.

I wholeheartedly approve of it... new players would be more likely to have a positive first experience of the site.

I have no problem with the point farming (MOBA, rabbiton and torcav are actually fairly polite in their games with noobs), but it will be interesting to see whether these guys can maintain general without a steady supply of their staple diet.
RIGHT ON !!! Its a no-brainer.

So far, seems everyone is for, with none against. About all we can do more is to add a poll to perhaps better attract the "powers that be" attention.

Oh, ... add me to the "yes" column!

Good work. I didn't screen shot it because I thought it might stick around but now its back to normal. Must have been testing something!

I was thinking maybe he was just embarrassed about his rank so he wanted to leave it a mystery :lol:

Great work btw lack. This was a simple, yet very important change to make. Should ease a lot of headaches from the new recruits who start their own games!
