Sequential BR's don't even take that long. Maybe a week for a full round, and maybe 6 rounds to finish. That is relative to how many people are in it of course.

Don't understand how this went unnoticed. Good idea! But not for BR's.

Who cares if you have to wait a while for your turn to come around? You got a hot date somewhere?

Personally, I wouldn't care if my next turn was in six months, as long as I knew I would get it eventually.

trinicardinal wrote:So I wait for 3 weeks for my turn to finally reach and get killed because I had a rl delay and reached to my comp 5 minutes too late? Sorry I can't support your suggestion if that is what it could mean to someone. You signed you for a sequential battle royale so you know it will take a long time to your turn. What happens to the person who takes all their turns till its just them an one other person remaining? Someone misses due to rl and boom... lose the game after all their patience in waiting for all those turns? Can't agree to that.

Excellent point!

I totally reject the OP.

Qoh game finder shows you have played BR once and it was freestyle game.... hence your first round would have been over in 24hours.....!

My current game has been 10 days now since the start, their is already 2 players who have missed (48hrs gone and no turn taken) and another 20 players must have their turn before round 1 is complete and in theory it could well be another 19 days 22.5 hours (approx) before round 1 is completed.

Admittingly this is my first BR game and I intend to play many more. But I am sure I am not alone when it comes to players missing turns and the annoyance of it. Yes I have missed turns and I am ever so apologetic for it, both to opponents and and my team mates when applicable. But I would accept in a game like BR's if i missed I would be kicked on the basis that the games overall time is very long.

Yes it is a casual game site and I hope everyone has a life outside of cc (apologise to all those dedicated cc mods and workers who spend many hours making this game great as my comment was not implying anything :-) and would not like people to be offended) but we are talking 5 minutes of your day to ensure you take your turn ( Quote CC home page "You can take your turn in 5 minutes with your morning cup of coffee or in between classes."). Therefore I really do not see why a comment saying that if you miss your turn you are eliminated on the BR link/page and a rule ensuring this was implemented would be so wrong.

If you dont agree with the rule, you simply wouldn't play. And visa a versa.. I guess. :D

My understanding is that - in a freestyle game - when a player misses a turn, he (/she) is allowed to begin the next turn, but everyone else is blocked from playing for half the round length unless the turn misser begins. If this is true, it implies that one deadbeat will hold all the other players up for 12 hours. While this may be an issue in standard games, I suspect it would be more frustrating in a Battle Royale game - and one can't set up a BR to play only with friends etc.

It's not everyone that is blocked when someone misses a turn. Whoever went last can not go until someone else starts their turn. So, in a BR, that means about 3 seconds of waiting.

Personally, I dislike ... but I wanted to say the above would be a real cool gameplay option. Except that I would add that you have to make a successful attack or be dead. Would really liven up some no spoils games, that's for sure.

I would add the option to all my games - and I think it's a good idea for BR.

I hope you were sarcastic, practically 1600 games with a 98% of attendance...

There was a tournament with this settings. Also a missed turn meant you were out, because you weren't capable of making a succesful asssault

cool. Did the players who were eliminated this way just have to agree not to do any more attacking for the rest of the game? (I know this is totally off-topic, so that's my last question on the matter)

I would support kicking someone out for missing a turn in BR games.
Yes I understand it takes a long time to take a turn but I think it is only common decency to take your turn when it comes around to minimise waiting. I reckon those that are missing turns probably want out anyway.
I would also back the idea of a death match....miss one turn and you are out, maybe BR games could have this implemented.

I know there are a lot of people who want the punishments for missing turns to be harsher. There are plenty of suggestions on how to do that. This one seems really excessive. CC is not going to boot players for missing a single turn. Not gonna happen. REJECTED.
