This should be fixed, it's like forgetting to click "public" and seeing all the private games you can't join.

Definitely something that should be added to the "Game Finder" page. Would reduce the pages of games that are not available to join. I agree, a simple checkbox before submitting or perhaps just not showing games that you are not a reserved player for and therefore cannot Join into.


To be honest I keep checking into the forum, stunned it's not done already. Heh that and adding game date to date finder, but omitting reserveds should be a big priority. It's annoying!

Probably because the spots are coded to stay reserved for 24 hours, but obviously speed games don't last that long. It could also be so freemiums can't get invitations to them that could get around the premium requirement.

Great work! I love the additions!

Only one small problem I see with the Game Invitations is that players can invite anyone to a Tournament game. This could potentially disrupt and delay tournaments if a player accidentally (or otherwise..) invited nonparticipants to the game. I suppose this has always been a problem, as Tournament games are just private games with a header, but with the invitations it seems to me that there is at least the chance that it could happen inadvertently. Perhaps only the Tournament Organizer should be able to invite players to Tournament games?

In any event, I must say I like the way this site is progressing. :)

If as an organizer you find a player inviting non-tournament-participants to the games, I would give them a warning then kick them out of your tournament if they do it again. Or just kick them straight out of the tournament. (As a TD, I would support either one.)

One solution that would help with missing tournament games and with excessive PMs might be to add another tab/link at the top of MY GAMES page that says something like INVITED. Then you get a page where you can see all the settings, etc. of the invited game including if it is a tournament game.

Then when you are invited to a game, the MY GAMES link could say [1 NEW] similar to when you get a PM.

I actually like it the way it is now. when one of my teammates isn't joining the game I can just reserve them the slot and get them in rather than having to wait for the TO to do it.

My experience after a week or so of using this is that it'll be helpful in some situations and not as much in others but that's true with most things and its a great addition.

However not everybody joins the games within 24 hours. Is there a way to make sure either the spot stays reserved for longer, or the invite PM will not delete automatically after 24 hours, so players can still join the game later on without me needing to send them the password via a new PM.


Lack opted for a 24 hour reserveration since currently Conquer Club mostly operates on a 24 hour time-scale---think of Turn times for Sequential and Freestyle, etc. If there is enough demand for a longer reserveration period, we can look into that after the 24 hour reserveration has had some time for us to acquire data.


--Andy


So far this is working great for me in tournaments, although I don't use it for all my tournament games. I would very much welcome a 48 hour period instead of the 24, then I would use it a lot more....

I also understand the problems with using it for speed games, would be nice though, if there was a way to solve those issues. I would definitely use it for speed games.

I think reserving games in private or tournament games should be exclusive for the player that set-up the game.
In 1 of my tournament doubles games, 1 player joined and then accidently send out an invite to 1 of his friends (who is not in the tournament), which resulted in this friend being teamed up with 1 of the players of the opposing team.
If reserving is only exclusive for the tournament organiser, this kind of mistake can be prevented.

not sure where to add this this was the only thread i could find really on the reserve spot feature. Also not sure if its already been said. But i would like a pm sent to me if the person i invited rejected my invite cause i was un aware of the rejection until some random people that i didnt really want in the game joined up. Also maybe in italics show who it is you have reserved the spot for. After reserving quite a few games i kinda got my teams mixed up as well in which games i wanted them in. Also there should be a feature where you pick 3 names and you get the choice to add those 3 partners to multiple games without having to re choose them for every game. Just a thought, this feature is really really nice though :)


ps- also maybe 48 hours instead of 24? just incase that person invited doesnt see the pm or were in a hurry and dont read the pms... it happens not the only one to have a reserved spot not takin in time and someone else joined at first i didnt even know it was only 24 hours thought i had longer.


It was brought up and i thought it was a good idea if someone rejects or doesnt join in time the spot should stay reserved and a pm sent asking would you like to reserve this spot for another player before opening it up to the public.

A great move forward, I like it lots. =D> =D> =D>

For the next update, can we have the option of selecting those off our Friends list to invite i.e u click the invite, u can then add in people by name, or mass invite ur friends by checking a box against their name? This just makes things a lot slicker in inviting ur regular homies:-)

Still, it's a definite improvement, who said things never changed around here (apart from me :oops: :D)

Maybe the invites could be sent out from the creation page.

That way, any slots needed for friends can be reserved prior to clicking 'Create'


There is a risk that someone can slip into the game before you reserve all the spots, but we might add the ability to reserve multiple spots at once in the future. I'd prefer that over adding invites to the start a game page, which could encourage more game starting instead of joining.

Yes :)

I've seen a few games now where it's set up as follows:
(2 player map)
slot 1: -open-
slot 2: -reserved-

Is there any point in maintaining reservations when no other players are holding slots (outside of possibly a tournament game)? Shouldn't the game, upon last "active" player leaves the reservations be removed/game destroyed, similar as to what happens when the last player leaves a game without reservations?


That game should have been destroyed :? If you find another example please post the game number and I'll check it out.

So that you save a click? I guess so, as long long as it doesn't complicate the PM too much.
