[Invites] Inviting players to speedgames

Postby karelpietertje on Sat Sep 05, 2009 4:50 am

Concise description:
  • Make it possible to reserve spots for other people in speedgames as well, instead of just for casual games.

Specifics:
  • The reason this has probably not been done initially, is that the 24 hour reserve will totally be fucked up when the invited person is not online. This however can be prevented using a 5 minute reservation.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • In speedgames more even than in casual games, I have sometimes trouble with people wanting to join in my team when my real teammates haven't joined yet.
  • Especially when joining a triples or quadruples speedgame, you can get the problem of people who you don't want to play with joining with you and your team. If however I would be able to reserve spots, I would join the trip, invite my partners, and they only join when everybody has been invited. So either we join the game like we should, or a wrong person joins before I sent out all of the invites, which means no harm done, we just drop again.

I agree with your suggestion, but I'd also like to recommend that you make private speed games if you know who you want to play with. This could be done in conjunction with the invites so that you don't have to drop like you mentioned in your last bullet point.

Inviting into speed games will save me the trouble of PMing, or posting wall comments, to get people to join my private speed games, but 99% of my speed games are public anyway, so it won't tremendously affect me personally, but I think it would be good for the site in general.

You are missing the point a little with your suggestion. When you play speed team games, you want to play with those you know on your team. You don't want to have to fart arse around inviting people etc, often people play speed for unique defeats towards team medals and speed medals, so private speed games, means you would be playing against those you have played before most of the time. Gets boring playing the same people.

Great idea to set up invites to speed games =D> =D> I hope the CC gods can make it happen.

Ah, I see your point. That makes sense, and makes my suggestion useless. Karel's suggestion, however, is still valid and I support it.

Absolutely...

Not So Much For Creating A Teams Game...

But I See Doubles Freestyles Opened Up And It Would Be Nice To Join And Invite A Pard Rather Than Having To Say "Alright At Exactly 4:05 Pm Join The Game So Nobody Jumps In"

I Could Just Invite Or Even Let The Other Team Know To Invite My Pard And Myself And Have The Game Reserved...

invite players to a speed game

Postby eddie2 on Fri Feb 12, 2010 12:57 pm

hi just wondering why you can not invite players to speed games. think this would be a good idea if you could as it will stop you getting stuck with players you dont want in double speed matchs.

I assume it's because people don't want to wait around for your invited player to show up. They create speed games to play now.

no what i am meaning you usually play speed doubles when someone you play with is online so if there is a doubles game on in speed you join and somtimes somone else clicks at same time so your doubles partner misses even if they could code a five min sign up for it. this would make it easier

invatation for speed game

Postby Prince_Tottenham on Thu Sep 30, 2010 4:41 am

Concise description:
Able to send invitation for speed game, while Casual (24 hours) game needs 24 hours for the invited player to accept/decline the invitiation, i think it's fair to say 5 mins mixmum to decided for the invitation ?

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
to help people get their their team-mates whatever 1v1 or 2v2 without forced player ..

I don't see a need for a poll yet. If no support is shown, I don't see a reason for a poll.
