also, just another suggestion:
sort the "join a game" page from new to old, instead of old to new.
right now, the page you see first has only "farming style" quads on difficult maps, while the last page has way more standard and nice games. turn that around so new recruits see the nice games first!

But then the Hard to fill games would become even more ignored?

Any victory will give you the teammate medal if you are entitled to it, the victory does not have to be a team game with a unique opponent.

Thanks Dako :D

To answer your question, it only groups games together on the page that you are viewing. So if there are identical games on other pages, those will also show up when you click on "Find at least xx similar games". I admit that's a bit unintuitive, but it's much easier on the server.

Ok, thanks for the explanation. Well done :).

Are there going to be any other maps than Colosseum used for BRs?

We've also overhauled the Join A Game page (specifically the Public Games tab) to group together games with the same game options. Often players will create a whole bunch of identical games, which take up much of the first few pages. This is a particular problem for New Recruits, because those games are slower to fill up and are usually on difficult settings. By grouping them together and including a link to load all the matching games, we discourage the "farming" of inexperienced players, make browsing for a new game more pleasant, while still giving players the option of joining all the identical games if they want to. Thanks to JeopardyTempest for suggesting this improvement.

This is a step in the right direction, but looking at the new "Join A Game" page it obviously isn´t going far enough. You still have to go to page 3 to actually find the first Standard game on a standard map. So in regards to "farming of inexperienced players" and easy "browsing for new games" this won´t change a whole lot.

To really effectively address the mentioned issues, a more radical approach is needed, as discussed in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=174222

b) Hide all the special settings on the "Start a Game" & "Find a Game" pages too, yet again with an expand button "Show advanced/expert settings".

c) Create map categories. Separate the old school Risk style maps from the rest. Only include the standard Risk maps in "Beginners" Join/Find/Start a Game pages. With an expand button to unlock the rest.

I reset all three of you, and fixed it so that it doesn't count if you drop the battle royale.
