[Official] Feedback Request for Speed Games

Postby lackattack on Tue Dec 20, 2011 1:07 pm

Hola,

I'm currently working on this suggestion: Add more Time Options for Speed Games. Speed games are often anything but speedy, and so I plan to allow flexible round lengths from 5 minutes to 1 minute. I'm wondering what to do about the extra time given when you eliminate someone. Since the current 2.5 extra minutes doesn't make sense in a 1 minute round game, I can only think of 2 options: always add 1 minute, or always add 50% of the round length i.e. from 2.5 minutes to 30 seconds depending on the game.

I prefer the 1 minute rule because it's simpler but I admittedly don't play many speed games and I'd like to hear from those who do. Please vote for whichever option you prefer!

Muchos gracias :D

Why not also allow longer round lengths? Like 10 minute speed games? That'd be a good option for really large maps...

Fine... I'll be that guy...

What about a middle of the road approach... half the round length, with a minimum of 1 minute? Because 30 seconds sounds awful.

Sweeping a map in a standard escalating multi-player speed game with 2.5 minutes extra after a kill, is already difficult enough with a slow internet connection. I'd vote for increasing the time rather than decreasing it.

If it would be "always one minute" I would have to stop playing speed games. I already can't play freestyle because of my internet speed.

Lack has clarified the question above I think.

This. Or a minimum of 2 secs. You can even add 2:30, not that somebody will be upset with the current value.

I think that it will be great to have more time options. My vote would be 50% of the round length minimum of 1 minute.

Yeah, if you don't want to play the 1 min speed games you wouldn't have to, but 50% with minimum 1 min for those 1 min games anyway sounds fine.

Maybe even 2-3 mins minimum time? When people get killed, then it usually means that there's a lot of stuff going on, so I wouldn't mind to wait for someone to finish his/her business. It happens just once or twice in a game, so it won't extend speed games much.

It's 2-3 min already after kills?
And I'm not sure how it makes sense to get another 2-3 min after killing somebody in a 1 min speed game?

What's so wrong to have 2-3 minutes added after a player kill in 1 min speed game? It won't happen every turn and usually the whole added time will be used for killing another player or the turn will be simply ended shortly if no other easy kill is on sight.
