Re: 20-30 Second wait period for speed freestyle

Postby HighlanderAttack on Fri Jul 02, 2010 10:34 pm

I think for 24 hour freestyle games no one should be able to start until 12 hours has passed--just my feelings on this --I voted yes of course

Re: 20-30 Second wait period for speed freestyle

I see this is starting a long line of suggestions. So far I've got:

12 hour wait period on all freestyle
12 hour wait period on all Clan War games (not sure how you would determine if it was Clan War or not)
12 hour wait period on all fog games

I think all of these are not good ideas overall. I see the benefit, but 12 hours is a long time. Think of freemies who just want to play a rt game, or a relatively quick game over a couple hours, these make that near impossible except on very specific settings. Also, for Clan Wars it would basically require a new game type (Clan rather than Public/Private/Tournament).

My suggestion does not greatly effect the time it takes to play a game. Even if it was just 10 or 15 seconds, that would give people plenty of time to be able to start their turn at the same time as their opponents, which is only fair.


How much more support does this need to be submitted for admin review? The poll is 29 to 4 right now

Okay, to get the ball rolling again. For this thread, people have been suggesting that:

A) 30~ Second wait before a Speed Game will start.
B) 12 Hour wait for all FOW Games.
C) 12 Wait on all Clan Games.

Okay, i can already see the problems with option B. It would hurt more freemium members then it would help. So I think that can be stricken from the record. A Obviously helps a lot of Freestyle players, who may be roaming in the Forums waiting for their game to start, then get the disadvantage when it does. C i am a little sketchy on, as it can help with strategy purposes.

the problem for C is that there isn't a Clan game type (yet O:) ). Until that happens C can't happen because you can't make it for all private games. And I agree that you can't wait 12 hours for a public game, it's just too long for freemies and the like

Well you say that you refresh the My Games page. What I do for speed freestyles is I go to a completed game and just keep refreshing the map and and click "jump to your next playable game" once the PM comes that the game has started. I've gotten I think a 6 second game by doing that, and I almost always start first. So what I'm getting at is that this would actually detriment he who makes the game.

This original suggestion for a 20-30 second wait period for speed freestyle has now been submitted, as it has been around for a while and seems to have plenty of support. For the poll, a 41 - 6 is an overwhelming majority. Admin, as always, will decide it's fate.

Now with the 1 minute games the 30 seconds waiting period is almost compulsory

5 minutes waiting time to freestyle.

Postby skychaser on Sun Feb 03, 2013 3:08 pm

Just to say it plainly, there's abosolutely NO strategy at freestyle. No when there's game objectives.
5 minutes waiting time woud mean the player who did the last turn will have to wait 5 minutes to play the next round no matter what.
The one who finished the turn would have to wait 5 minutes after someone started the next turn or still his half the round.


This would greatly, greatly, ennormously improve the meaning of scores as it would take some of the farms who specializes at waiting till last second to get the objective and them use tools to start the round at insane network speed.

It would dimnish the value of internet speed.

It would give some basic strategic feature to freestyle when there's objectives. By now it have NONE.

It would give some time and give more balance in 2players freestyle.

Better gameplay and more strategic so everyone wins.

Freestyle is an awesome setting for speed games and that would just ruin those.

It's also fun for multiplayer games, and I think it would hurt those as well.

Well. Be it.

I thought this could give some strategy into the game since this mode has none. After posting I recognized I was a fool. If someone wants free farm then lack of strategy is not an issue.

I'm going to say something crazy here:
What if... both people would try to get the victory objective?
But... but... that'd mean they have a conflict and they'd have to, they'd have to... fall back on strategy to make sure they get it. NOOOOOOOOO!

I thought this was meant to be a constructive suggestion, such as 5 minutes waiting time once every player had joined a freestyle game so a team or the last player to join don't have necesairly the starting advanage.
