  • Speed Games on the Classic Map should be available to Freemium Members

Specifics/Details:
  • Create a new tab in "Join A Game" for "Join Classic Speed Games".
  • This tab will be the default tab when "Join A Game" is clicked.
  • All Games on this tab will be Speed Games with basic settings (Esc, Sunny, Automatic Deployment, 5 min turns, 6 players, standard).
  • These games will only be on the Classic Map.
  • These games will be open to Freemium members.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • This will increase the retention rate of new players
  • This will give new players a taste of the best part of the site for average players looking for a classic risk type game online
  • This will still encourage players to buy premium
  • Ends the problem of a player's first game being on a map they don't understand
  • Ends the problem of player's going to pogo.com to play risk after they realize they have to wait 24 hours to play again, and never coming back.
  • This change will not cause other significant problems in the current way the site operates
  • These settings are more fair to newcomers and limit the free options.


Will Cooldeals get a medal for this?

No, medals are not given out for Implemented Suggestions


Suggestions, just like other departments, has the ability to award medals. It's something that I would like to do periodically, but has only been done a handful of times in the past. I can tell you that the medals won't be awarded simply for coming up with an idea that gets implemented, but for actively contributing to the Suggestions Forum or to a particular suggestion.

So far, we've only given out one medal from this department since I've been here, but it has been something that has been discussed. Since BG brought it up again, I'll review this topic and also see what the other Suggestions Moderators think.

I'm sorry, that is correct, and that is what it would be. Although I do love the idea of a Suggestions Contribution Medal

Should this still be implemented? I thought this might have been taken back.
