Can't actually do it right now, 2 of my games are sequentials, so they'll take forever, and the other 2 i'm waiting for one person in each to take their turn... :roll:

"Friendly" Games

Postby AK_iceman on Tue Oct 10, 2006 3:01 pm

Got one that hasn't been suggested yet. :D

Would it be possible to set up a friendly game here, where no points would be at risk?

I know many people are complaining about the scoreboard right now, and this would be a way to keep both sides happy. If you dont like the way the scores work, then play only "ranked" games with people you choose, and start public "friendly" games where no points would be at risk.

As always, this could be subjest to abuse, and might lead to even further inflation of points on the scoreboard.

Also, there tends to be a lot of fighting in the forums about who is the better player. But then someone always chickens out because he would lose more points than the other guy and it wouldn't be fair. So, why not start a "friendly" game with a neutral 3rd party and duke it out for the bragging rights?

I tried to argue both sides of this, but please give some feedback.

A while ago, an Unranked Games Option was discussed, but Lack filed it under Rejected. But perhaps you can get some sway and momentum here.

Where do you learn the game then?
Where do you learn the game interface?

When it comes to rating. Rated players benefit too much from playing against newcommers that do not know the game and/or GUI. A solution could be that newcomers get their first rating after x number of games. Thereafter ratings should be recalculated or a more easy approach. Games against unrated players are unrated but used to calculate the newcomers rating after x games. Using the technical easy approach will drive new users to the site and drive rated players to play against newcomers since they have a play4fun option.

This has been written without even playing a single game!

Maybe I am misunderstanding/mixing up rating and ranking?

I would love an area i could go and play much lower ranks...or much higher just for fun

win lose...no change in score...cheating is irrelevant for the most part

i can play my dad in 30 games at a time, and not care...

generals can play their favorite or most persistant noobie without shelling out 100 points at a time

i imagine its some work, and im not complaining how its settup now, but It really would make those games just fun

and i know noobie section has been discussed, and im sure it could be integrated with this...
