oops...looks like i spoke too soon as well.
But surely it gets very annoying

Why dont CC just implement in the system a very fine and simple tool called "saved searches ", or what ever it is called.
Is so nice,usefull and easy to use that it should be avaliable to every member

Same difference, there's a shit tonne of stuff to deselect all the time. Can we please either make this optional or go back to default = no selections made on new game finder?

Please.....


I think we're planning to have that be toggled on a player-by-player basis. With the statement in the announcement: I see how what I said is different from what I intended to say:

The form when you first visit it is no longer pre-filled with default fills (Awaiting players, public, hide reserved games) but it after your first search, correct, it does remember.

Agreed.


I like it saving results but there should be a "Clear All" button added for those people who do not like it. Best of both worlds in my opinion.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

No, i think the default should be nothing kept - and a button made for saving results. That way i dont have to click "clear all" everytime, yet you click something once and your problem is solved. the way you've proposed i still have to do something every time i use game finder as a TO or clan organizer.

As rds said, it will soon be an option in the Game Settings. I'm in favor of adding a reset button as well. Hopefully this will all be done next week!

It's really nice to hear the updates are finally getting structured and sounding like they're going to be regular as well. It gives me hope that some day the XML suggestions that have been floating around for half a decade will actually get coded sometime soon :)

Join A Game/Game Page Update

Join A Game Page

    Hey everyone! As you may have noticed, there's been a change to the "Join A Game" page! To show the newest and varied games to everyone, we now show the newest games on the forefront! The game numbers are now listed in a descending fashion (newest to oldest).

The Game Page

    In an attempt to organize our page, the Game and Round Number of the game page has been moved to the right, and above the list of players and side statistics:

        Image

    Due to this, BOB users may experience some technical difficulties.

We're hoping that these updates help pave the way for some future updates, as well! Thanks again to our Development Team! That's it for now, Conquer Club!

Regards,

BMO

And pave the way for past updates to be finalized (new medals)? While I appreciate the efforts of the new Admin staff in their strive to advance the site, if it continues to involve incomplete or ill advised updates, I fear where things will lead.

ps - Thank you for reverting the game finder!

WOW. What is the underlying reasons for such a horrible update? (And it appears to have been implemented in game finder as well.) Do you guys ever start games? Some games are not immediately filled, but they move up the search lists and eventually someone finds them and join the games. Now, less popular games will be stuck at the bottom and not joined. Great way to make sure that less played maps, etc. are even less joined.

Those larger games with more complicated settings/maps are not what anyone should see when they first click "Join A Game." The nature of those games is that they should be the kind that people are actively searching for, not the kind of games that people stumble into. This way, it's at least being kept dynamic, and for most people on CC, their games are probably starting faster. An indirect effect of this is that it's also harder to farm those maps/settings in the future, so Conquer Club considers this a positive change in the whole, and we did consider map popularity, etc.

I never click "Join A Game", so no personal opinion really. But I do search for games, and now old games come last in the search. I think those old games will likely build up when people aren't "forced" to look and consider them having made a search. Less popular games will be stuck at the bottom and not tried/joined in the same way. Don't think that's a good idea.

The nature of those games is that they should be the kind that people are actively searching for, not the kind of games that people stumble into. This way, it's at least being kept dynamic, and for most people on CC, their games are probably starting faster. An indirect effect of this is that it's also harder to farm those maps/settings in the future, so Conquer Club considers this a positive change in the whole, and we did consider map popularity, etc.

I never click "Join A Game", so no personal opinion really. But I do search for games, and now old games come last in the search. I think those old games will likely build up when people aren't "forced" to look and consider them having made a search. Less popular games will be stuck at the bottom and not tried/joined in the same way. Don't think that's a good idea.


Perhaps we can make them return oldest results first in the game finder. I think that the affect it had on the game finder was unintentional, and I agree that it should list them in an ascending order.
