No Double turns=stupid

Postby Mab52983 on Sat Aug 29, 2009 2:47 am

It was the best thing about a freestyle game.It pointless to even create a freestyle game now, because you'll be at a disadvantage from the beginning since you'll pretty much automatically go 2nd.I don't see how it was unfair to anyone when they would go first,the you double turn and then they can double turn right back.Or if your on CC at the time you can stop them from double turning anyway.I don't see why so many people were whining about it.If you want to basically play sequential rules why join a freestyle game?It was a different and fun way to play and some whiners ruined it.I know when my premium is up with Conquer Crap I'm not renewing it.

nope...

would have been nice to have beat you on that...

funny how you set those games up, and the second I actually finished my turn before you, you were calling for RT and accusing me of abusing freestyle by waiting.... but how you set up 3 open games, instead of speed games...and clearly were planning on double turning

of course I would have been there for the double turn, but it would have been irrelevant

I doubt ill beat you at the second game either...but it will be nice to know you are patiently sitting there hitting "b" for another 6 hours

I do feel bad that you spent so much time hitting B for hours, to get your bonus the exact second I started. all for the 6 points you must have snagged from me...lol

Suggestion: give us a REAL update, that will improve the site, not half the amount of Freestyle games that will be created.

Its an improvement, because now if you are quick enough to end your turn first, you dont have to worry about missing a turn because of a double turn.

It really only changes games for those who use the double turns, but it does help people like me, who simply never bother with them. It also makes it far more likely that someone will play the freestyle game quicker, because there is no need to wait the full 24 hours to make the turn.

It hardly means it will be real time, but it makes the risk of real time less, especially if you can play fast. On some maps, a double turn is the whole game. Now its a little more balanced, with the slight advantage to those who join second, if the person who made the game isnt watching.

It also eliminates the massive advantage over new players, who have no idea what a double turn is, no idea how to make one, and no idea what happened on the game usually, and this of course was the reason it was eliminated.

It wasnt eliminated for the regulars who know how to counter a double turn...it was eliminated to protect the new players, that were being gobbled up, not ever having any idea what happened, and how they lost the games.

The playing field has somewhat been leveled for them, and even the most vocal voices for double turns, knows this is the true case, and is just ignoring that one little fact out of convenience.

Of course you are right (no ignorance out of convenience in other words). But, I don't think this is an argument that holds water in the first place. New players are disadvantaged to begin with. No need to pamper them by destroying the freestyle setting even more. If you're new, go out there, have someone do a double-turn on your ass, learn from it and move on either by playing seq. or by continue playing freestyle knowing you got another strategy to use.

The double-turn was only ever loophole. Now that it's closed, people who have been abusing it will need to rethink their strategy.
