Hehe, I have an everything side once in awhile ;-)

But as a rule I don't like arguments based on entitlement. "you guys have so much money that we deserve more options" and so forth.

I've been a premium twice.

That being said, this suggestion is a good one for both premiums and freemiums. Premiums get speed games. 12 hour games are NOT speed games; for speed games, you have to literally hang out at the computer while the game is in progress.

This would fall along the same line as 1v1 games, freestyle, which freemiums already take advantage of.

there should be more options for premiums, as it is there is only unlimited games that most premiums buy it for but if more premium oriented options become available maybe freeloaders like yourself will actually buy premium.

12 hrs is a good idea but it probably would result in more missed turns but 16 hr options would be better

I usually play in the morning, at lunch, when I get home and before I go to bed; 4 times a day.

The problem with a 12 hour game is if I sleep late one morning, can’t take the time to play that morning and by the time lunch rolls around it is more than 12 hours.

When people post things like this, it makes me say: then you don't have to play. People who want to can.

Having options is never bad. If it was a change from 24 to 12, I would vehemently oppose it. But it's only an option.

For those with plenty of time on their hands, I can see this being an attractive option, but I'd probably never play a game with 12-hour turns.

When considered sleep time for an avarage man/woman is 7-8 hours, 12 hours turn limit will put stress over ppl forcing them to login to the site every possible, and still there will be real huge occurances of missed turns. To help (not intentionally) number of missed turns to increase is to make way more exploitting of this option for the farmers, and what openings for bad use for free style players this wud brought is another matter to think about.

I dont like this option at all. It is not well suit for team play is another matter...Most of team game players will no way like of this option but only is sutable (njoyable) for multiplayer games and 1v1s.

On the other hand, i am someone who hates restrictions, from this way of looking to the matter maybe this option can be brought up but again i dont think this option will be offering to a huge portion of all members, but there will be a small portion of folks using and njoying of it.

I agree with you here.

However, I'm not sure that many people will even play it for the reasons mentioned. How many people can actually guarantee that they will be on every 12 hours. I think there would be many more missed turns and lots of sitter action going on (which can be a situation that is abused).

I would rather see them implement some longer round length options than shorter, as I and others have proposed in another suggestion. I see more benefit in that than this. But hey, if they did them both at the same time, I wouldn't be opposed.

I have no issue with the suggestion, but I doubt I'd ever use this setting. Unless there was a weekend "pause" button, but that suggestion has rightfully been trashed multiple times.

Round Length times need a middle of the road

Postby Madwacker on Tue Sep 11, 2012 10:25 am

The current Round Length times do not have enough middle road. They start at 24 hours and jump immediately to 5 minutes.

I would like to see a nice middle ground of say 12 and/or 6 hours of Round Length, so that more turns can be taken during the day and keep a nice game going. I hate waiting sometimes 2-3 days for my turn in a 4 player game when the other players take that 24 hours to heart. The game also loses my interest because it takes so long. On the flip side I don't want them to be speed games either.

Maybe also allow paying players to set Custom Round Lengths?

Re: Round Length times need a middle of the road

Postby Madwacker on Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:11 am

That's like saying nobody has time for the Speed games. For example, I'm in a game that started on the 10th at 3pm and its now the 14th and we've only barely progressed 3 rounds. I like to play more often during the day, but I don't want 5min rounds. So moving the cap down to 6 hours or 2 hours or whatever, would give the players like me not speed games, but faster games with more turns. If when finding a game, that isn't your cup of tea, move on.

You did not understand what he meant. Playing games of 5 minutes, means that you know you'll be right on the computer for the next let's say 2 hours. Is something that you can commit. But if we make a game of 6 hours per round as you suggest, you won't be on the computer all the time, you'll be eating, going out, or whatever you do...
Sleeping takes 8 hours (or should take for everybody). So while you are sleeping, your turn will start and when you get awake you'll have already missed the turn.

Stuff like this should go in the suggestions forum.
If you want to post some idea there please remember to to search to see if it has been suggested before instead of making a new topic. Here are half a dozen versions of this idea people have suggested before, so go bump one of those instead of making a new topic.
