That's a great idea! And I could make it happen only if there are no other waiting speed games.

I don't really play speed too often, but reading through this thread gave me a good positive vibe ... if the update makes this many people happy it's gotta be a good thing!

I don't know if it's possible, but in case there's more than one awaiting speed game. then it would open a new tab

I look forward to playing a couple of faster speed games now! I am also glad we get to use these new settings for our Anniversary Celebration in early January 2012...

That's a great idea! And I could make it happen only if there are no other waiting speed games.



I added this to the suggestions:

Really what needs to happen is an auto entry into a speed game--especially for speed ass. games

You should be able to set it on or off

I know I would like to be directly sent into the game

I wish there was also a 30 second wait --after initialized before the game starts to make things fair

Either option works for myself

Huge disadvantage to starting a one minute speed freestyle game in my opinion

at least pop to active games vs getting a pop up and staying on waiting games--by the time you get to your game the other player has his turn done if they are fast

I am loving freestyle

Just a rush and some really skilled players --wow--I have a lot to learn

but still hesitant to start games as I will get smoked before I ever get into the game ten seconds later after it starts
