Just block the over 24 hours games for new members like team games are blocked for them.

CC Could allow it to where New Recruits can't play them; because new recruits can't play terminator or assassin games, or manual troops, etc. They can't have complex games. All CC needs to do is just add 72 hours or even 48 hours to the complex list.

You would not be forced to play 12 hour games. And I think that most people would not play 12 hour games. I know that I wouldn't.


me neither, but i think 12/24/48/72 hour games would not hurt anyone just like 1/2/3/4/5 minute speed games.

The only 2 arguments I have to that is that people will accidentally join games they don't want to (they're own fault, but still a disadvantage) and that if there are games that are 48/72 hour turns, the games will stay active in the system longer and could take up too much information on servers because of more games being played at once.

I think it's a strong idea, but your second argument there is a very important one to keep in mind, I think.

And if people are stupid enough to play 72 hour games with a 1v1 freestyle, well, could could end up waiting 108 hours between turns. And people complain about waiting 3 days to kick out someone for missing turns. Well, this turns into waiting a week and 2 days for that player to finally be kicked.

noone forces you to join 72h games, it just offers more choice. and it's mainly useful for clans and teaching games because it allows more time to discuss. but even then there's also demand for longer/shorter games and the speed games have various lenghts now too, so why not the casuals?

Think about new players though. I know when I joined, I just joined random games without looking at settings. Lot of new players don't really tend to look at the settings they join.

Actually, I still do it. :oops:

If only there were a way to restrict new players to a certain type of games....

Re: After 1/2/3/4/5 minute speed games why not 24/48/72h cas

Postby Dukasaur on Thu Jan 19, 2012 2:16 pm

I think it was a mistake to merge the 12-hour game suggestions with the 72-hour game suggestions.

It makes it really difficult for someone to guage how much support the ideas have.

I, for instance, am totally opposed to 12-hour games but I could support 72-games. Should I post "I agree" and inadvertantly end up with an option I think is really bad, or should I post "I disagree" and sabotage what I think is a good idea?

While there are time preferences you would have, I think that the change, if implemented, could include all of those options. When there are multiple game options, I don't see a great reason to prohibit them unless they are just super bad, and none of these are. They are just personal preferences.

Esspecially for private games it would seem resonable to have an option of picking longer rounds.

Lots of the objections seem to be about people worried the new players will not notice and get stuck in these long games thus driving them away from the site.

So make the settings a premium only feature problem solved.

Or have an option in the user control panel somewhere with a clicky box. Freemiums can decide if their join a game search results will show the longer games or not.

New Round Length Options: Longer Rounds

Postby agentcom on Sat Apr 14, 2012 9:04 pm

Allow for even more casual games:
  • Allow Round lengths of 2 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month and maybe even longer
  • [Amended suggestion based on feedback:] Allow round lengths of 48 hours, 72 hours and 1 week



How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • More players: Some players cannot or don't want to be online at least once a day. It would be nice if you could just check into your games every couple of days.
  • More scheduling flexibility: I would love to have a hundred active games and know that I won't have to spend hours a day on this site. For example, I could clear out a bunch of turns on the weekend or on a slow work day, and not have to worry about missing a bunch of turns when things pick up.
  • Consistency: CC has already worked on the other end of this list, allowing speed players to have even shorter rounds. Let's do the same for the more casual gamers.

Although I initially considered it, I DO NOT support the idea of an unlimited round length. Games need to be able to end if a player goes missing, dies (in real life), or actually quits the site. Games should not be able to sit forever just because some player isn't taking his turns. However, I do not see the harm in letting a game sit around for a long period of time, as long as it is actually moving forward.
