I made a list of about 5 things and they got dealt with. Anything tournament related I won't be aware of.

Just would like to say, these updates have brought back from inactive to playing regularly again.

I understand there are some bugs, but I have full faith that the new leadership is going to work these bugs out swiftly.

All in all, great job. :D

OK, was that all the stuff fixed within the first 24 hours or recently? Just see a lot of people reporting odd quirky things that I think would be good to get laid out in one place.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

Just to add, I have only seen sequential players arguing for the delay and no regular freestylers. Says a lot.


There is a reason we don't play freestyle speeders...

Care to elaborate?

By the way, all the people arguing there is now more time with the twenty second delay in one minute speed games, you couldn't be more wrong; the twenty seconds is taken out of the time so there is only forty seconds to take your turn. An inexperienced speed freestyle player will certainly struggle to make a good move within that time.

EDIT: Actually, it's not just the last player, it's every invitation. It doesn't redirect to the page with the games listed.

it does the same thing if you delete an unwanted game.

i have started a thread for it in Bugs.

Is "Increased Medal Cap" implemented? I can't find anyone that's got more than 30 yet. Do we need to earn an additional medal for those to trigger?

The one hour game delay is ridiculous! I have rotating group of 30 players that try and play our little unfriendly 6 person World 2.1 map and every unilaterally agrees, it is pointless and ridiculous. IN a game right this minute all 6 of us are online wanting to play and we must wait another 50 minutes. There went our live play free for all. Which is always one of the best games when everyone is playing at once.

Only thirty seconds, not really a big deal and won't affect gameplay much. What is stupid is the one hour delay on casual freestyle games; completely pointless.

There is no one hour delay. .. 12 hour if you are last


Game 13159787


It is a 1 hour delay on all turns in a casual, 20 seconds on speed. It is not completely pointless because it reduces the prospects of the last person joining taking an unfair first turn advantage.... most specifically for the type of game you linked.


Why not make it an option for the person that creates the game????

why not pay for premium then waiting an hour for a game to start wouldn't be a problem. you could play lots and/or speed.

so it has not been looked at?

I believe CD and TD will need to manually add those medals

Ok I have excellent color vision, it has been tested during medicals several times.

I just looked in on a 12 player game on classic map. Green Slate and V look pretty similar.

I doubt it would harm the game play, I already nearly always use the codes. Great update in my opinion. Thanks cc.
