Simple solution: make it so that the speed invites are only good for 5 minutes instead of 24 hours, same length as the turns.



Great idea. I agree.

I think its best then to split the invatations in two: speed and casual that you don't accidentally join a speedgame

this should be an option. I hate joining speed games just to find out my partner missed the game cause someone else joined...usually not a good player then loose.

No point in joining team speed games unless invitation can be sent out.

I like the 5 min limit if that has to be done. or less. if anything have a 30 sec invite.

Agreed. We can send invites on standard games. Why not speed games as well?

Since this has been a general consensus of Yes, I got one last question, since i have limited time.

What do we want it as the expiration? I've seen 30 seconds and 5 minutes.

(That means i'm adding a poll)

Granted I am a freemium so this doesn't really apply to me, but slow internet can cause a page to take almost 30 seconds itself to load. 30 seconds, or even a minute, then is probably not a good idea.

I think 2 mins would be the best option, all the players you want to invite will be online (or at least should be), and at most you'll have to make 3 invites. 30 seconds is much too short and 5 mins is too long, 1 min is decent but 2 would be ideal imo.

I would say no to this suggestion!

Another farming tool.

I don't really look every invite I get.

How many do pay attention?

This is a great idea. I have had several speed dub games that I had to drop and recreate cuz some stray immediately joins as a partner before it was joined by who I wanted. I like 5 mins.

If someone abuses invites then that will be dealt with.

Casual games can also be private, this was no reason not to get the invitation system going.
I see no difference.
