There are no waiting games. I started one earlier, waited 30 minutes but no one joined, so I dropped it.

Ahhh, okay, yeah this one is going to be difficult I think. No one plays much speed freestyle anymore and speed games in general aren't as popular as they once were. I think bigWham's hope with the new medals is to get people to play these settings again.

If you wall me when one is up that needs a fill and I'm online, I will join. My guess is there are other mods who will do the same.

Also, perhaps we can have a set time each day where people can try to get together.

I would attempt to join if there was some set times.

Me thinks this is not going so well.

Perhaps make the bronze medal 1 vs 1?

Or make it so any maps can be used. we are 1/3 of the way through the month and only 3 games have been played

There really do need to be times here. Let's try 18:00-20:00 CCT to start! That's 6-8pm EST.

If anyone has a specific time they prefer, please put it in here.

Flat rate cards would have been a better choice for a new medal . Or make the FS games 1 vs 1 - filling any speeders with mulitple players can take ages

-----------WOW!!!!....only 4 days left...An event might get skunked...No one meeting a medal criteria...Letting new medals out...
-------------In the old days years ago....On Halloween...Freemiums would get to play speed games on The Halloween map all day for free...You should of let Freemiums play the November challenge...for free...Nov. 1st ------- Nov. 30th....There aren't 4 days left....Skunked it has been....A sad 1st in C.C.LAND History... :( ....No one can join a game after Nov.30th..Should have changed that rule to , when you can't start a game past a month , but are given an extra month to finish....Speed games finish in maybe an Hour tops....Should have extended the challenge to join through Dec. 11th...
-----------I personally hated when they added 1,2,3,4 minute speed....5 minutes was enough....Get rid of 1,2,3,4 minute speed...Go back to 5 minutes, maybe add a 10,15, minutes....5 minutes would be more like real life time playing the real game when someone took a turn......They added those 1,2,3,4 minutes...for a small few.....Who try and play a million games a day....point and medal chasing...when a lot of players are most likely like me...Who wanted to play a real life like game.??That would take an Hour(multiple players)...1 vs 1 took about 20 minutes...I had one game last 5 hours once as we went back and forth...It was Kool...During it...As people took turns...Just like in real life...you could get something to eat or drink or go to the bathroom... Without missing a turn... THINK ABOUT IT... :D

Totally agree with CSS about the 1 and 2 minute games. Made it impossible to enjoy this event. And I do like the thought of 10 and 15 minute games too, great idea. How hard is that to make it an option, seriously? You'd get a lot more players that way, and you could even base a monthly challenge on that alone ;) A grand total of 15 games were played. In concept it sounded great, but I could never get anyone in-sync to play more than a couple games, and only 4 player bronze games, no silvers, no golds. I'm all for another event similar, but I'd like to suggest you go with 2, 3 and 4 player games, 5 minutes (or 10, 15 :lol: ). You'd get a lot more players in on that one.

Keep up the great work! =D> Lets get more people playing CC !!

This one definitely SHOULD have been different! Allowing freemiums is a fantastic idea, really wish I'd thought of that! I was kind of against doing a speed challenge like this, tbh, as I was afraid there just wouldn't be enough interest. BW wants the new medals to be introduced in the monthlies, though. Had we changed a few settings or made a few tweaks, it could have been much better. My fault 100% there. I was in the hospital for a couple months and honestly just couldn't get much done there. I'm sorry for this shameful challenge!

Thanks to those who did play, but unfortunately no prizes to award!
