Interesting idea. Probably should be the topic of another suggestion, though. But briefly, there's probably concern on the effects on freemiums. If I'm a freemium tourney player, who joined a 1 v 1 game because I knew it would be finished around the time that I needed a slot open for a tourney and I got hit with a 3-day wait, I might be a little pissed. Hell when you only have a couple turns to take a day anyway, it would kind of suck to have a game completely taken out of rotation for a few days. That said, I would totally use this a couple or few times a year.

This is truly a good idea.

Sometimes when you have a hard day at work, it would be nice not to come home and have to take 40 or 50 turns. A 48- or 72- hour option would be very welcome.


Maybe you guys should be less active on CC. :mrgreen:

I would definitely back longer rounds as I've just started a new job and right now there are some days when I struggle to find the time to take my turns. I used to play 30-40 games but now play less than 10 for this reason. I'd say 36 or 48 hour length as opposed to any longer as an 8 player game would take too long.

I find sitters to be a necessary evil to be used in exceptional circumstances. I usually try to get teammates to take team games. I don't trust anyone to play my 1 v 1 games as well as me for the simple reason that I've seen the entire game progress. I try to leave notes when I can, but I can't prepare a sitter for every eventuality.

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

agentcom wrote:Requested that my similar topic be merged with this one. Hopefully the discussion there will help this one out.

In reading this thread, the main reason that I see people voicing disagreement for is the following: What if people accidentally join a 72 hour game when they don't want to?

My response to this depends on who those "people" are:

people = freemiums with only 4 slots---Don't let freemiums play this, just like we don't let them play speed games

people = noobs---Two options: (1) have this be an "advanced" setting that ?s aren't allowed to play, or (2) (my opinion) it doesn't matter. As long as you don't let freemiums play it, the noobie premiums that you're concerned about can just go enter another game. Or they can enter 3 72 hour games instead of 1 24 hour game.

The other criticism was a worry about people fleeing the 24 hour games for the longer games. My response is (1) if this happens then it will prove that it was a truly desirable feature to implement. Should we not implement a feature out of fear that a vast majority of users will like it?! And (2) I don't think this will actually happen. There are well over 3000 games waiting for players right now, and each player has the option of creating their own games. If you want games on your settings, find them or create them. If no one wants to play your types of games ... well TS.

I hate that the longer round options (48hr, 72hr, 1 week) got mixed in with the shorter round option (12hr). I don't care for the shorter round option.

Longer Round Lengths

Postby gv1974 on Thu Aug 30, 2012 10:15 pm

I would like to have games with longer round lengths (36, 48, 72, 96, 120 hours) to be more comfortable sometimes.

To be honest, I don't see a reason to go above 72 hours. After that it get's ridiculous if there is someone who deadbeats. I honestly wouldn't want to wait 4+ days to see a person miss a turn, and wait a total of 12 days for that person to deadbeat.

Ok. But what abou 36, or 48 hours. Most people work, and sometimes they are tired. So, these pelo are restrained to a much lower amount of games per day, or even could not play ofr an entire day.

After thinking about it more and more, I would like longer rounds I think. Not more than 72 hours. I'm not even sure I want that long, but 48 hours would be great I think.

That's probably the best idea as that one is in "Submitted." LOCKING this one until I figure out what to do with these (merge maybe?)
