You won't care about form, no one will care about your idea, how good it may be.

If you had a 6 hour time to take your turn, how would you sleep without missing a turn? quick naps between each turn?

More round length options

Postby dazrazmataz on Sun Jan 20, 2008 3:07 pm

I've looked and can't see this suggestion anywhere, though it seems pretty obvious to me...

Can there be more round length options? My suggestion is:
5 minutes
10 minutes
30 minutes
1 hour
12 hours
24 hours
3 days
7 days

Most importantly, more options than 5 minutes and 24 hours would be great!
Cheers

5 minutes Have it.
10 minutes Seems possible for speed games on large maps.
30 minutes Why?
1 hour Why?
12 hours People have lives this has been rejected.
24 hours Have it.
3 days Why?
7 days Why?

7 days. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

wtf mate. 7 days to take a turn? this means that i could actually have to wait 49 days to take a turn in an 8 player game :lol: :lol: :lol:

player 1: so did you miss a turn while you were on your 2 weeks holiday?
player 2: nope only 2 players moved. i still have 5 weeks of waiting before my turn comes.


or how about this.

Q. what's the longest game ever?
A. 3 years and 15 rounds

Postby Kaplowitz on Sun Jan 20, 2008 8:24 pm

they are all bad options.

My choice would be some new speed option like:

23:59 hours. Could really quicken a game.
or the really fast
23:58! Might be too many missed turns with that one!

Add more Time Options for Speed Games

Postby herndawg on Tue Jan 29, 2008 4:56 pm

Concise description:
  • Give the option in speed games for 1 minutes, 2 1/2 minute, and 5 minute turns.

Specifics/Details:
  • Many times players complain about how slow speed games go, especially when everybody waits 4 minutes and 30 seconds before doing anything. This would give the option to have much faster speed games

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • It will vastly speed up speed games, and give an option for faster, or slower speed games

I think minute and a half times would be totally awesome... I don't know about choosing your own times however, that could complicate things and make it all messy...

1 minute would be rather dicey for a guy on dial-up. I'd suggest a 2 minute minimum to allow for network latency. The idea, definite thumbs-up. Speed chess-style, just applied to CC.

True, but you don't HAVE to play the smaller time limit. Just like I don't play the freestyle right now.

Didn't think of dial up. Good point. What would be the coolest if when you create a game you could choose Speed Game and then Minutes allowed
The only thing changing is the minutes per turn, still same refresh and everything.

Imagine a Freestyle Classic with like 5 or 6 people, much less of the waiting at the end for last minute attacks, it would be crazy. Yes maybe not as much time for strategy but it would really be intense.
