Skip Game

Postby lackattack on Wed Sep 01, 2010 12:34 pm

Skip Game

Ever experience a situation where it's your turn but you'd rather not begin the turn right away? Perhaps you want to discuss strategy with a teammate, or meditate before gearing up for that important move. Wouldn't it be nice if you could easily skip to the next game?

Now you can thanks to the new skip game feature, as suggested by Frop. A "skip game" link appears next to the Begin Turn button, and you can take only the turns you want to without having to return to the My Games page 8-)

API Improvements

We've enhanced the Conquer Club API to take multiple values for many options when searching for games. Hopefully this flexibility will help community authors develop more power and efficient tools for you to use!

I like it. It decrease some of the headaches we all have when we want to play a particular turn last. But in the end...we can't keep skipping forever... :D

I've noticed that this appears when you only have one game available to take turns... other than that it looks like a good update ;-)

I got all excited then, thinking it was going to let me automatically ignore games where I know 100% I've lost, but was cunningly named to avoid the howls of the Anti-Surrender Lobby!

Despite not solving that vintage ongoing issue, it would appear to be moderately useful :)

Very cool. Thanks.

Now if only we would not be forced to play with someone who joined a game that an invitee did not accept an invitation for (i.e. squatting) ... I have someone who joined the team and now is immediately missing his first turn in one right now.
