Love it

also agree should have option for 12h, 24h and 36h (48h is too much in 8 player games you may end up taking your turn every 2 weeks)

thanks for the update! Just played my first and last game at 1 minute on Classic. Just not enough time. Will be interesting for the freestyle dudes to crush some people with their quick movements even in sequential games.

Game 10308928

The good news was that it only took 9 minutes to complete the game. I'll try 2 minute rounds next.

The settings for Conquer Cup II will be posted on 2012-02-01...check out the Conquer Cup page! You can pre-register now, or wait until the settings have been announced and register then!

In regards to other time length options, I'm sure we'll look back into. Shorter Games has been one of the most wanted features for a long time, so it is about darn time we've gotten it I think! But Longer Games generally haven't had as much as a push. But if it seems like it would be a beneficial feature, we'll look into it!

Variable Speed Round Lengths

A very popular request, originally suggested by herndawg is to simply offer faster options for speed games. I must agree that 5 minutes is not exactly speedy, especially for sequential games with many players. Well I have good news... you can now play 5 minute, 4 minute, 3 minute 2 minute or even 1 minute speed games! I imagine the 1 minute games could be quite hectic on complex maps and would change the game from a strategic challenge to a quick-thinking dexterity contest. I must try that out on Supermax: Prison Riot! :twisted:




a lot of nice updates there, thanks

and 1 minute speed games are like speed chess i think, nice
