Incorporate Watch This Game Add On into Site

Add a Watch this game feature where a user may bookmark games he/she is interested in following the result.

Specifics/Details:
It would function as a tab on the central command home screen and games that would be bookmarked by a user would then be added to the tab. Games could also be removed when a user no longer wanted to monitor them. It would function the way the script originally created by Dako functioned. (Link - http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=97965)

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
It's no secret that the user created tournaments are dying, which saddens me. It was what drew me to the site and caused me to buy premium. As you can see on the tournament organizer leader board, I've created my share, but I've stopped. CC does not make it easy to monitor games easily anymore. In addition, as a clan leader, it was nice to be able to subscribe to our war games to know if there was one in danger of a missed turn. It also allowed us to keep scoreboards in the war threads and tournaments updated quickly, which makes for a better experience.



I like to watch games that include people I know, and also some that include my current opponents, in a futile attempt to discern patterns in their play. I suspect when we do get championships, or similar, I'll want to watch those too. It's frustrating to scroll through the ever-lengthening list everytime, having to remember all those numbers... so maybe an option to add games to watch list in the "My Games" section?

watched games?

Postby qeee1 on Sat Apr 22, 2006 2:04 pm

I think it'd be interesting to be able to add a list of games as "Watched games", games that would appear on the mygames page but that don't have you in them.

You know, I thought the idea for everyone to have a history of rank promotions was the most useless suggestion but now this one takes the cake. Actually, it is a tie between this and and the request for a way to keep private notes (which pen and paper can handle quite nicely).

I don't mean to be nasty but my to-do list is already long enough to keep me busy until September - and I'm not sure if that's 2006 or 2007. So stuff with a high cost to benefit ain't gonna make the list.

This, too, can be handled for example with a pen and paper kind of solution. The games have numbers, the number can be typed to the game finding page and thus you find the game. Or, if it's a spesific person whose games you want to watch, type that name there.

How about adding some fancy graphics and colors and gizmos and sounds, explosions and fire and tanks and men and....

:) I just wanted to suggest more useless things. Just keep busy on priority stuff, Lack.

if you use Firefox it sort of does that for you. Any game number you type into the game finder is remebered. So if you go into game 15420 and you later type in 15, the game (and every other game that starts with 15) will pop up.

Spectating Games

Postby Spuzzell on Sun May 21, 2006 6:56 am

How about the option to bookmark games you are not in but would like to watch?

They could appear just below "Active Games" on the My Games screen.

I suggested this before and got a rather rude response:

I still think it's a good idea but... meh.

No worries, I can see how it's low priority, I just thought it'd be fairly easy to code.

a bit like ebay's Watch this item - CC's Watch this game

Postby Pedronicus on Thu Aug 17, 2006 3:52 pm

Can we have a link to games we are not in if we select it as interesting?

i.e: Other games in a tournament your in that could affect you.

or . . . . If your looking in on a game (you're not in) and offering advice or just watching to see how it goes..

Lack wasn't keen, lol.

Have you ever been in a tournament before MeDeFe? or even 2 or 3 at the same time?... when you've been in one, come back and see if you can scrub out your vote.

when Lack poo pooed Qeee1's request, the site was young and the tournaments were a lot less than they are today.

This site is evolving - I'm sure Lack never envisaged how popular real time games would be.

Tournaments are the same - they're getting a lot more well organised and very popular. Knowing whats going on in other games is crucial.

Current option is to open all the tourney games into different tabs and then "bookmark all tabs". Then you can open them all at once, relabel completed games if opening individually, etc.

Watch Game Option*Rejected*

Postby Exterminator on Sat Dec 02, 2006 10:50 am

You know u can watch topics on the forum. Why cant u watch games.

If ur like me and have organized a tourney, you wont to see how the games are getting on. u have to look it up via the game finder and that takes a long time.

So i suggest that on every game, there is a "Watch this game" button. If you press this button, it will go under the title "Games Watching" in the "My Games" section.

its not majorly important but i think it needs to b done ASAP.

So, wot do u think?

games that i am following

Postby CBlake on Sun Feb 11, 2007 10:28 pm

i dont know if this has been suggested but , i think it would be cool if you can save certain games to a list that you are following, this would be helpful for tourny directors or people watching a game like battle royale so u dont have to keep searching for it .. please comment
