12 hours game times

Postby The_Serb on Thu Nov 23, 2006 5:20 pm

Hello to all,

I wonder why there is no 12 hour time limit as well as 24 ....
Some players are fast and are able to play games in faster tempo.

I think it would be good idea

'Varying Turn Time Limits' is on Lack's To-Do list. Try doing some investigating before posting. ;)

12

Postby Blitzaholic on Fri Nov 24, 2006 12:29 pm

I hope this is considered an option when you go to create a new game or start in one or join a game, the options of join a game that says 24 hours, 12 hours, 8 hours perhaps, this is a great idea, but players should be aware when they join a game what the time table is, if so, then very nice job, all who suggested this! :D

Concise description:
  • Speed up games where newbies join a game and don't play.
Specifics/Details:
  • Add a third game speed option for a 12 hour game
How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • The current choices for game speed are: Casual (24 hours) Speed (5 minutes)
  • You have to sit at your computer constantly for a 5 minute game, and three 24 hour delays when a newbie joins and doesn't play really slow things down.
  • 12 hours is enough time for just about anything that will keep a person away from a game:
    • 8 to 10 hours of sleep
    • 8 hour workday plus travel
  • This would improve the flow of games

except that i usually sleep then get up and go to work, a minimum of 16 hours, with travel. So i would have to check my games when I got up in the morning, before going to work. Not something I would do.

I suppose you could have it as an option, but how many people would want to have to check in twice a day just to ensure no missed turns ?

I'm not suggesting that they replace the 24-hour game with a 12-hour game, just make it a 3rd option.

I like many other I know on here do check the boards at night, in the morning and again after work

I agree with Papa Geek. A 12 hour option would be good. Another option would be for the game creator to determine at the outset how many missed turns you could have before being kicked out. I have spent too many games waiting 3 days for 3 deadbeats in a row to skip their turn.

12 hours 3rd option is amazing.... if you don't like it, them don't tick it when you start a game....

it will speed up the games a bit, so many noobs would probably stay instead of leaving forever when they find out that it takes 3 days to get a turn 8-)

Again people, we can't always say "Well, if you don't like it, don't pick it". Then EVERYBODY will use it as an excuse to get some new feature submitted.

WOW, nice comment !

Isn't that what the suggestion board is for?

Can't I say if you don't like Nuclear don't pick it?

And the same for Chained vs. Unlimited?

The entire game finder is nothing but a list of options for each game feature.

What's the difference in asking for a 3rd option for Round Length when other features like Game Type has 6 and Spoils has 4?

The whole purpose of game finder is to find the games you are interested in playing. Some players only want to check for moves once a day. 24 hour is great for them. Others want to play a game now, 5 minute is great for them. What about those who want a faster game and are willing to check the games 3 or 4 times a day. Is there anything for them? No, they have to wait 3 days for players who sign up and quit. 6 days if they get 2 in the same game.

So what exactly is wrong with "well, if you don't like it, don't pick it"?

This is not an EXCUSE for a new feature. Maybe it's something others would like to see.


If YOU don't like the idea, tell us so, don't put us down for even suggesting it !

Because I have heard that line used about 1.65X10^11 times in suggestions? Even on the dumbest suggestions that didn't make sense I've seen it used. Gets kind of annoying.

All I think this suggestion will bring is, as you said, faster games, which aren't a bother for me, and an increase in missed turn percentage, because they won't be able to always time their turns right.

Ps. I've seen this suggestion before.
