Thx All

I would also like to see a vacation flag option included, especially for premium membership. I'm sure we've all lost a ton of games due to vacay.

When searching/joining games, the game list pages still looks horrible. Very drawn out list of players in each game making it difficult to get a good overview. Something in these updates have caused it.

Congratulations on the "No fortifications" option. It's always very positive to have more options to test our strategic mind in different settings.

And IMHO giving a second chance to community members is a very generous move, and one that will no doubt have positive consequences.

pop on over to the Suggestions forum with your suggestions!

i think that one has been put forward many times but they'll let you know


Unfortunatelly the suggestions forum is not very active right now. I have submitted a couple of ideas lately and got not much answer, mainly from people who said "We don't like your suggestion because it's different to how we are playing now and would force us to change our way of thinking".

Lol exactly.
Oliver, this is not someting personal and you seem to see it as such. Your suggestion is an open gate for new types of cheating and abuse (survivor mode). Stop inventing stuff up. I love all novelties and I play all type of games, probably like most people completely against your idea. Most people are against it because of all its flaws, deal with it and stop making stuff up.

Otherwise, bigwham, the minimum\max rank thing has been proposed about a million times. The suggestion moderators just archive it as rejected, with no discution possible. This was lack's vision of the site. It is purely rejected each time because the previous admin was against it. Since this is such a popular request, we would be interested to have your personal opinion on the matter. Is this something that could be reconsidered to satisfy a large part of the community?

Can invitations be done so we add people in bulk rather then 1 by 1?

Would be much easier to copy paste 8 players then clicking 8 times.

thx!

These additions are really great! Thanks for all your hard work, coding and volunteer team. Keep it up. As someone who is running a large tournament, anything you do that can make mass game creating easier would be *MUCH* appreciated. The greatest would be some methodology that would allow a .csv file or the like be converted into a massive amount of games created. I know that is probably wishful thinking and problematic for the game engine, but I throw it out there. I will go over to the suggestions forum and mention it.

Also, any of you that are not premium members,if you are not in abject poverty, then you need to pony up the nominal sum that the site requests for premium membership in order for your views to carry any weight at all. If you are not even willing to throw $25 to pay for server and development time, then you are just whizzing in the wind IMHO.

let's change that OliverFA!

you, me & the rest of the Club will turn this around!!

you can see Suggestions getting implemented, no? I know we have a lot of catching up to do... but believe me we will be taking Suggs seriously. Aside from implementing suggestions (the important part), the process is being worked on too.

Yes, open it back up for consideration.

And OliverFA, do be realzies with your suggestions! Think about compromising, how to make the sugg address the issues people have with it.

Yup, above expectations! Pretty funny to remember that the platinum medals, which is more or less the only thing done during the reign of el jefe took over 6 month between the anouncement and the resolution of all bugs.
