I see lots of missed turns and losses by AoG now :D

I do see a lot more missed turns --but I think it is a great update

Also would like to see 48 hours implemented

Just go Join A Game > Speed Games


Awesome...thank you...been on this site for years and never found a game that way. I don't remember the last time I clicked the join a game button unless by accident. Much easier

I think the new speed is awesome. I'm glad that it tells you when your game starts too. That was needed.

I noticed this too. I think it is a feature where you can't see your game since its 1 v 1 and you are already in it so you are not eligible to join?

That's right, you can't see your own games on the Join A Game tabs. I'll add something in the Game Finder to select all speed games with 1 click on Monday.

Is it possible to give back the PM feature where you a notified when your game starts? OR at least have that as an option? Sometimes I forget to leave that window open, and start browsing the forum, so I miss the notification.

Also, don't know if this is possible to fix, if I have more than 1 window open, and CC waiting games is underneath a different window, the notification doesn't work (or at least I don't see it). Can that be fixed, or is that even possible?

Thanks, and Merry Xmas!

That's a great idea! And I could make it happen only if there are no other waiting speed games.

I don't know if it's possible, but in case there's more than one awaiting speed game. then it would open a new tab
