Minimum percent of turns taken option.

Postby jonlen2000 on Mon Jul 28, 2008 8:26 pm

My apologies if this has been discussed previously but I didn't find it with a few attempts at searching...

Concise description:
Allow game creators to set an option requiring players joining their game to have a minimum percentage of turns taken.

Specifics:
Perhaps this option would also be enabled to require that opponents have played at least a certain (fairly small) number of turns so that this percentage is more meaningful. I think the option would work fine - and maybe better - without this addition though. The Game Finder search should have a checkbox to the effect of "Only show games which I am eligible to join."

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
More devoted players would be able to play in games with only other devoted players, if they wish. Also, players would have an additional incentive not to miss turns, so that in the future they have more available games to join.

Rank Suggestion

Postby cpurcell on Sun Aug 03, 2008 7:31 pm

I think that it would benefit players greatly if on the "start a game", and "game finder" buttons, there would be a checklist with all ranks posted, and players could block certain ranks from joining their games, or keep games with the specified rank of players from showing up when searching for games, by checking the boxes of the certain rank.
I believe that this will improve the site because players who are not interested in playing lower ranked players could block that rank of players from their game.

If this were implemented, I don't think there would be many games for lower ranked players to join. That's not really fair to them, they should be able to play whoever they want, regardless of their rank.

I have noticed that the heirarchy of this site do tend to play only other extremely high ranked players anyway. All they do is pm each other and set up private games...

Re: Rank/Score Limits for Joining Games *Rejected*

Postby dkdj98 on Wed Aug 06, 2008 1:00 pm

I wish this was something we had, at least if nothing else to filter out the new recruits! I've had several games with deadbeat ?'s and it gets very frustrating! For my purposes, I would like to have the option to filter out the ?'s when starting a game and nothing more. maybe instead of points based, it's based on games completed. I wish I had seen this in time to vote on it, it might have made a difference. Hopefully this will be revisited in the near future.

Crap........necrobump.

You couldn't have seen this to vote in time because it's over 2 years old!!

If you want to avoid new recruits, join a game last or play private games. New recruits can't play team games, so you could play those too.

Suggestion: Casual games - Premium only option

Postby e_i_pi on Wed Aug 27, 2008 10:00 am

Concise description:
  • Ability to start Casual games that only premiums can join

Specifics:
  • Have an option in Start A Game that allows you to select Premium only when making Casual Games.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Multis can't stack these games to win
  • Banned players can't keep coming back as 1000 rating players, playing like 2500 rating players, and upsetting honest paying members by taking an undue amount of points
  • Unfortunately, does not fix the problem of people making multis to play games against themselves for points

I know this is a bold suggestion, likely to get shouted down by some. I'm suggesting it as an option, not mandatory like it is in Speed Games.

actually, many of *manimal 's Multi's have been premium, so this doesn't stop him.

Admittedly, I thought of this after reading t-o-m's post, but there are other positive side-effects of it. I don't think it's a rock solid idea, but it's enough to generate some more community discussion about ways to combat the problem.

Yeah I hear ya. Personally, I have nothing against freemiums. I was a freemium myself for all of, ooh, 2 weeks lol. This isn't an anti-freemium thing, just a recognition that the majority of multi behaviour that directly affects Premiums could be moderated by individual users who feel it is a problem.

Postby Diamonds14 on Wed Aug 27, 2008 3:27 pm

Personally, i think its a good idea.. because i think people like *manimal make up a low population of multis. Im not going to spend 25 dollars to get an account banned, but a lot of people would create a new account ina matter of seconds. So even though its not a 100% multi filter it would reduce the numbers and there would still be plenty of players to play against freemiums so thats not an issue either.

I think this is a great idea.

A freemium is more likely to miss turns/dead beat than a full paying member would (unless somehow it was to their tactical advantage)

There is nothing worse than having 3 turns of an assassin game then your target changes or the person trying to kill you changes.

1. Create private games (it's a premium's privilege).

2. It's just going to make games fill slower if it's just freemium members in the game. This will discourage freemiums from purchasing premiums.

Wouldn't it encourage the purchase of premium, since they would know that all the "good" games are premium only?

Is that as a premium member we have the option to choose to only play other premium members

It's not to stop the freemiums from playing, or a blanket, but gives us more choice for who we choose to play. and then it answers this question.

A RATING ADJUSTMENT FOR GAMES?

Postby AeroMate on Sun Sep 07, 2008 11:21 pm

Rating adjustments for games

:idea: Perhaps CC can create a rating adjustment that enables players to set a minimum/maximum score for the challengers... Thus, a Cook couldn't walk into a Major's if he/she put the adjustment to 1600 to 5000... I would appreciate it if this is possible, others members have wanted the same thing... Perhaps it can be an extra to Premium accounts??? :idea:

Not going to happen for Two reasons,

1. You didn't use the form. (Which I won't quote because of number two)
2. This has been rejected in the past

BTW: why are you shouting?? Suggs and buggs is a peaceful forum.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
Mid to high level ranked players would not have to be bothered by playing noobs, and possibly losing loads of points if they get crappy luck

Then again, you could just go through the entire scoreboard and take loads of time, and add everyone who's under the rank of sergent to your ignore list... :roll: Maybe I'll try that

Agreed that its a bad idea. Yes the higher ups play private games against each other but they really have no business playing anyone else once you hit 3k. you pretty much have to win 7 games if you lose one to someone under 1600 or something around there.

And the lower ranks get their fair shots at higher ups all the time. I myself am all over the join a games page as are most of the people i play with who are 2k and up.
