Missed Turns in 24 Hour Games

Postby Xatrius on Wed Jan 30, 2013 5:01 pm

Right now I'm involved in a 4 player 24 hr game. One player has missed his first and only turn, a second player has now missed his first two turns.

This is ridiculous. If a player signs up for a 24 hour game and can't manage to make his turn, he should be booted straight away.

This does suck especially when you only have 4 slots to play games and you're waiting 3 days to take each turn. But shit happens where you cant take your turn and new people make accounts, join a game and never log back in. You just gotta live with it and at least you can jump into a new game. You don't have to wait for each dead beat to miss 3 turns so you can free up the slot.

What I want to do is find a whole bunch of people that are like me, completely addicted to the game that log in 4 or 5 times a day to check their games and are always up for an rt game. And build my friend list or even a group with them so i can just see whose on and send them a message seeing if they want to play. That way you're not getting into games with 3 deadbeats and one guy that only takes 1 out of 3 turns.

Low rankers tend to do that, Xatrius. Hang in there, buddy; it gets better.

Yeah, I've actually been crafting a friends list. (I also referred like 9 people) But still, I think they should address this. What kills me is that when MIA players finally log in, they get all the troops they missed!

Some people use this as strategy, u can miss 2 turns, and play the third, and miss after 2 turns again and play the next, and miss the next turn again
i dont use this tactic, since it can become a boomerang and u lose anyway.

dont worry about it man, just remember shit happens sometimes.........maybe they got hit by a train or they got too pissed the night before. there can be many genuine reasons for missing turns. Check their attendance stats that should give you a clue. And yes some people also do this as a tactic.

For me i just start more games 10/20 at a time then i always have turns to take.....also theres speed games. if you cant cause you aint got premium, get it!

If they dont come back just take the free points and smile it matters not :D

Are you proposing a zero tolerance for missed turns? You have a 97% turns taken after 40 games. Were your missed turns worthy of being kicked? Were your missed turns any less annoying to the players in the games that you missed turns? Others had patience when you missed turns so please be patient for others who have missed turns.

I missed a turn yesterday, because I had to get up early and ship lots of work equipment out via FedEx. Then I had to pack my suitcases, and travel an hour to Pensacola. Then I flew from Pensacola, through Atlanta, to Norfolk. By the time I got home, I was tired and went to bed early. Conquer Club never entered my mind during that time. A couple of retro'd armies are not worth missing a turn. I hope zero tolerance for missed turns never happens, because most of us are human and we are going to miss turns occasionally due to real life events or just plain brain lapses.
