If we can't, then drop the 100 and just use more lower limits.




I agree with this.

I'd vote for:

None, 20, 30, 50, 100

This way, we keep the 100, and keep 20 and 30 (which are often used in tournaments). I haven't often run into a 40 round limitation.

Oh and btw: losing the 100 could be dangerous.
You say only 0.1% reaches 100. But you'd cut at 50... How big a percentage hits 50 rounds?


Edit:
Whoops, MudPuppy kinda said the exact same thing already... Guess we must have a point ;)

Is it possible for any mods/admins here to extend the poll to include some of the other suggestions here? I would definitely vote for some of them more than the current options.

(I quite like 15, 30, 60, 100 ;))

100 limit should be there.
When a 50 rounds limit game hits round 40, people will allready play different because of the round limit of 50. It is not that exceptional for a game to hit 40 rounds, therefore, 100 should be a good option.

10, 20, 30, 40, 50 would be my preference. But as that is not an option in the poll, voted for the top one. 100 seems silly as, as you said, only 0.1% of games get that far.


10 rounds. I Love the idea. Would be useful for speed, hence Speed games shouldnt last 1 hour or longer.

Different topic, Speed games option of 3 minute turns would be awesome. 5 minutes seems to be a lot of time wasted.

Good. Something on the lower end of things was definitely needed.

I agree with Kuma's suggestion of a drop down box or a typed in number where you could set your own round limit for every game. Just make 10 the minimum for sure.

For those that voted for the option with NONE, 20, 50, 100: why didn't you want 30 to be in there?

i'd like to be able to set any round limit i want.
also i'd like to see the option of setting a round limit to games that have already started but do not have a limit set. it would be great for current stalemates.

Honestly, I'd be against medals for the Round Limit feature. Round Limits should be used more as a functional thing than a medal-hunting thing, if that makes sense.

Definitely keep 100 rounds!! My favorite games usually last at least that long.

Why not just 30, 50, 100? 20 rounds is nothing!

So what exactly would happen when the game reaches the limit? How would winners and sequences be determined? Or would all lose?

I agree with squishyg. Well, 20 games is a bit long for some maps, but it's not an unreasonable number, so it should not be included in the possible limits. The other three options are very reasonable, however.

But I too wonder what will happen when the limit is reached.

lackattack wrote:Based on feedback collected by our Community Manager and game stats (only 0.1% of games make it to round 100) I propose that we switch up the round limits to make them more flexible. The new limits would be:

None, 20, 30, 40, 50

Any 100 Round Limit games would be converted to 50 (so far that won't make a much difference to any ongoing games).

Do you agree with this change?
Lack, I will tell you why it is good to have a round limit. I been caught up before in 6-8 player escalating games where players refuse to attack and sit there on their asses waiting for other players to do something. The game draws out to 6 months and a couple hundred rounds until someone yells " hey, lets set up another game and who ever wins that game we will let that player win this game too". In my opinion, there is never a " draw ". So if we put a cap on games with limited rounds, than perhaps that will force players to actually move and play rather than just sitting back and deploying round after round.

If that's the case, why bother having round limits at all? I for one, will not be creating any games with round limits.

Arethusa is going too far toward the other extreme, not having any limits at all. Better to reduce the maximum number of games that could be limited to a statistically significant number. That number may be 80 or 70 or some other number. Lackattack, if you have access to those stats, why not select the number that represents say, 5% of the maximum turns and set that as the largest limitation we could select. That figure could be rounded, of course, to the nearest 5, e.g. not 73 rounds, but 75.

I'd agree with rd limits - it only happened recently but,

8275391 and others, we even got bored talking to each other - it's a plain draw. 200 rds, 14 missed turns, it don't matter.

I was going to try and knock us all down, so it was a game, but couldn't see a way to do it evenly.

Didn't vote, but 100 is surely the absolute max? 50?

Surely the best option for this type of game is for the system to enable a vote by each player to agree to a draw. Once all players have voted, a majority decision will decide whether or not the game continues or is drawn.

this has been suggested many times. it will not be implemented because the chance for abuse is too high. establishing a round limit before the game starts is a much more efficient way to eliminate stalemate games.
