Eliminate freestyle for new recruits

Postby AgentSmith88 on Fri May 14, 2010 8:34 pm

Concise description:
Why is freestyle still even available to new recruits? Nobody coming to this site is looking for it and my guess is a majority of new recruits who join those games have no idea that it's freestyle or what freestyle is. Not to mention that 95% of the farmers use freestyle to do so. How hard would it be to block this game mode along with the harder maps, team games, etc. that are already hidden? I suggest that all freestyle games are hidden from new recruits just like some other settings are.
Specifics:
Hide freestyle as an option from new recruits (less than 5 games completed) just like team games and more complicated maps are.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
This will cut down on a lot of farming because most farmers use freestyle to confuse new recruits. This will also cut down on the amount of new recruits that don't come back due to being demolished and confused by a complicated game mode.

Agreed. It shouldn't be hard for the admin to do, since they already hide numerous other game types to new recruits.

Most are focused on the new Gamy Types right now. I bet once those get submitted, this will get attention

I agree with edwin, most of the time I don't post because I'm too lazy to bother. A poll sounds good.

Thanks darth. Poll added.

I would also say that those who don't know the site is based on RISK might think freestyle is how every game is if this is the only game mode they join right off the bat.
