Waiting Games Modified

Postby patrickaa317 on Wed Feb 06, 2013 8:47 am

How long has it been that when you have a filter on waiting games, all games with full invites are hidden? This is an awesome update and would make running tourneys a little bit easier.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

This was just launched on the site over the last couple of days, and will be officially announced shortly. I'm glad you enjoy it :)

Except the games disappear after you invite two players--makes it confusing when trying to invite same players to multiple games because you can't see how many invites you have sent out until the game starts
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

Sort of surprised it has not been announced. Why launch something and not announce it. Any sort of news like this must be welcome news for a lot of us. Some of us will bitch though. :P

Yeah there is that. I guess that's where game labels come into play; or inviting 'player 1' to all games first, then going back through and matching up 'player 2' as need be.

I still think the pros outweigh the cons for this one.

How do you initially decide who to invite to what games? I always have an external list i reference when creating tourneys. You've definitely got me beat on running tourneys but do you rely solely on the waiting games screen for organizational purposes?

No, but you need it to verify.

I have a situation right now, in a tournament I updated earlier today. A guy swears he didn't get an invite. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. Since I can't see the game, I can't go check. Maybe I typed his name wrong and accidentally invited a user with a similar name. Usually when that happens, the user-with-a-similar-name has long since left the site and the invite will expire, but I remember at least one occasion when that happened and the user-with-a-similar-name accepted the invites, and it was a big scramble to clean up.

But the horrible thing is that all I can do is sit here and wonder. Being unable to see those games, I can't check and see what (if anything) I did wrong.

i have a spreadsheet that i copy/paste from. but as i am creating 64 games at a time i dont always get through all the invites in one sitting. also it is a reference thing, being able to see where i am at. or to be able to see that i have the right settings - i sometimes slip up with wrong map or not nukes etc.

Yeah, I do all that too. But the game tag still goes through Game Finder so under the new system it still won't show you a game that has invites sent which haven't been accepted. Try it.
