Look at the number of suggestions in the Submitted forum that haven't been implemented. Some of them were originally suggested years ago.

There's only one person really doing site updates and so things in this forum don't get implemented quickly.

Cool. Thanks for getting back to me and moving the topic and everything. Hopefully, this will eventually come up on the implemented list.

it would be great to see this implemented for tournament organisers, at the very least, as it would make tourneys so much easier to organise.

Creating Multiple Games at Once

Postby KingConan on Sat Jul 16, 2011 8:34 am

This has probably been suggested hundreds of times before, but have you ever considered adding a #games to start on the 'Start A Game' menu.... So, If you create your settings, you can then decide how many of that type of game you wish to start?

So for example, I could change the settings to doubles with fog on the feudal war map and # of games to create = 10, then hit 'Create' and have 10 games created with those settings.

This would make setting up multiple groups of game so much less annoying IMO.

Seems quite a while since this suggestion received any attention...

I'm strongly in favour of it. I like to create four or five games at a time, and doing them one-by-one is a pain.

This has come up in other forums. I'll add my voice of support. At the very least TO's should get this. Don't they already have some kind of different page for making games? Or else how do they make tourney games. I certainly don't have the option on my Start A Game screen.

TOs start games the same way as normal. There is just a drop down box for them to put the game into a specific tournament they are hosting. Then it starts an empty tournament game instead of a public game with them in it.

This would be very useful to TOs.

Thanks. Either way, my point remains. TOs already have more options to make games, so this could be implemented by further changing the coding for the TO Start a Game screen. I think it should be available to everybody though.

Of course, you should still be limited by the 50 games awaiting players rule.

i would be prepared to contribute cash towards this being implemented for TO's.

can we get an SOS Create Multiple Games widget on the left for us to contribute towards the cost of implementing it.

Creation of multiple games with same settings

Postby BluU on Tue Jun 26, 2012 3:09 pm

Concise description:
    Add an option to Start A Game page to create multiple games with the same settings

Specifics/Details:
  • A drop down will be added to Start A Game page with numeric values 2, 3, 4 ...
  • The number should be limited to Ten or something in that range to not allow creation of too many games, (unless there is no issue with such behavior.)

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • This will help us premiums that like to play several games with the same settings. Save us some valuable time, and help us prevent wrong settings that might have been missed due to the long tedious task of opening multiple games.
  • This will make the lives of tournament organizers much easier, as in a lot of tourneys they create dozens of games with exact same settings.

This has also been requested by the TDs. Hoping it will happen because it will make tournaments much easier.

Re: [GF] Multiple game creation/ Game Generator

Postby Robespierre__ on Fri Sep 06, 2013 9:40 am

I would like to request the perhaps unwanted power for TOs to be able to create games from a .csv file or something like that. For someone who runs a large tournament, to be able to generate all of the necessary info and then mass create the games would be a godsend. Since my tourney (NCAAs) allows people to play on home maps, it means every matchup has unique game settings. I autogenerate a spreadsheet of the info necessary to create games for my assistant TOs using google sheet and a bunch of formulas, but it would (a) reduce mistakes and (b) eliminate the need for SO MANY TOs to make the process of running the tournament much more manageable.

I don't believe this functionality should be available to anyone but TOs since no one needs to create so many games at a time but us.

You can't believe how much better it would be if chapcrap, DaveH, etal could use this functionality.
