It's been suggested a lot. By a lot of different people, different ranks. Freemiums, premiums. A lot of people want this option. I don't care what lack wants or if there is already a section in Callouts, this is something that obviously would improve the game for a lot of players.

Drop game option, if a certain point difference is present

Postby cookie0117 on Sun Oct 30, 2011 9:02 am

Drop game option, if a certain point difference is present

Concise description:
It would have to be an option to drop games on the first turn if a certain point difference was present. Say 500 points in either direction.

Specifics/Details:
You can make a game and if the player joining has a point difference of 500 or more from you, you can boot them on the first turn only with the point difference being the reason. This would stop the game and no mark on either persons record.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
This would then allow anyone to play anyone but would allow you to not play NR's or anyone inexperienced enougth to get accused of farming regularly, without you doing it with your full knowledge and so being quilty. Although a few games against low ranked people or someone you know who has just joined would be able to happen. Also tournies would not have problem with a manadory stop on games with a certain point difference. If low ranked players made games, they too would be able to play against people with similar points and not have very experienced, high point players joining up and creaming them all the time.

An end to dibate over wheather someone was farming or simply had a map and settings that only a NR would join, also a better chance for NR's to play against someone who is not going to wipe the floor with them and so put them off future games and the site in general.

I have spent awhile looking through previous posts and not seen this before, although life is too short to read the whole section!!

Otherwise i have to go through game finder and search through all the games to find one with a low enough rank for me. Last time I started a game, a Colonel joined and killed me in the first round. You can see that in my games, if you care.

In principle this is exactly the same as the Rank Filter suggestion which has been rejected numerous times in various forms and will continue to be rejected as long as there is a belief in a non-exclusionary atmosphere on this site.

I will say that an option for low ranked, new players to exclude established players probably has few drawbacks -- if you want to play your first few games against low rankers until you get the hang of it, you should be able to do so. We just won't implement an option where it's available to everyone for any game.

Does the game automatically kick them out? Or do you get the option? because what happens if you're opponent starts first? I could see people stopping the game based solely on the fact their opponent had an amazing drop or relatively good dice if you have the choice.

After a person has signed up to your game you have to ok the game if the point difference is present, then it starts. So starting position and the drop would not be present until the game has been ok'ed. Then no one can use that infrmation to decide i to play or not.

I put 500 in as an arbitory number.

There could be a cut off for lieutant, so if you are both above 1600 the option is removed.

Although there is no exclusionary atmosphere on the site, there are exclusionary rules which people can fall foul of through no fault of their own. It has to be decided by a matter of opinion if some is farming or not. This option would allow anyone to play anyone but if they had a large number of NR or low ranked players join up they could stop the games and so a claim of farming, or knowing allow it and then it would be easy to find people who are choosing to play NRs and not just having them sign up. This wil help protect experienced players while not limiting them in any way.

Also NRs and other low ranked players will be able to play other people who my be more their level of experience on certain maps and settings.

The rank filter will only allow the option to play between set levels, I propose that if its outside of a set level then the game can be dropped, all game will be joinable by anyone. Also with the addition of a cut of of 1600, so if both player are above this the option is removed, it will serve to protect everyone.

It is a widely known problem that the two principles of non-exclusionary atmosphere and no farming lead to a huge gray area when it comes to this sort of thing. My point is just that we need to resolve the principle first, before implementing a tool.

Yes, that's actually more what I had in mind.

How about all of the stickied topics in the Callouts Forum? That seems like the site promoting exclusionary principles to me.

It seems like the site already supports this, why not just embrace it?

If you want to create private games with people you know, you're always welcome to. The principle is that public games should always be just that -- public.

Many people have suggested the Resign/Forfeit button, but doesn't mean it's gonna happen. Heck, people could ask that they get unlimited games for free, doesn't mean it will happen.

This would just segregate ranks, which from what I remember reading, the webmaster doesn't want. If you want a game with a certain rank, you can try going into the Callouts forum and post in the 1600+ game thread.


Obviously unlimited games for free won't happen. Let's stick with using reasonable requests as examples. Resign would be nice, but you know it would be abused for stat-padding, so that being denied is totally understandable.

I basically want a feature to automatically do what I already do manually.
