Speed Games - non premium [rejected]

Postby gdeangel on Tue Jan 15, 2008 12:49 pm

I get the whole idea of inticing people to sign up for Premium Membership, and clearly server cost and bandwith use is higher for speed games, but blocking free members from playing any speed game really stinks. The guide says something about free member not being able to start a new speed game - fine make them unable to pick their favorite board - but at least let free members play some finite number of speed games per year/month/week (i.e., quota of one game /week would at least let you try some of the boards, see if its worth the $25...) Just a suggestion.

SHUT UP.

freemiums (even though i am one) complain too much about not doing private and speed games. If u want to play those games then pay the 25$. If u dont wanna pay then grow up lack isnt gonna lose more money so some whiney 10-year old doesnt need daddys permission to play here.

You are mistaken. Very mistaken. Although, I do agree with this suggestion... I think freemiums should get 2 non-stackable speed games a month.

You got a couple free speed games for CC's second year anniversary.

1. Fremiums - pay or accept how it is ;) You should be happy that they let you play at all. They might just give you a month to play and then kick you out if you don't play.
2. Premium - don't be so rude to freemiums, of course they want to get some better game "settings" for them ;)
And yes, even if it is very cheap then it doesn't change the fact that some people actually don't have the money.

... here's the deal

Postby gdeangel on Fri Feb 08, 2008 12:05 am

OK - so now that I figured out how this site works with the Freestlye pickup games, etc. it's not so bad getting shut out of Speed Games and it doesn't really ruin the fun - although a lot of speed gamers could use a few lessons in civility - BUT HERE's the DL... person who just signed up has a relatively short attention span - you want to dig in right a way and see what it's about. A lot of these people are going to read about the site, get psyched up, register, join a regular game (probably sequential, after all, to a newbie, start simple, right???), and maybe if they are lucky get in the first turn, sit there, say "this sucks", and then go deadbeat. Worse yet, they join a game with 4+ people, check in a couple of time over a few hours, aren't even to turn #1 and deadbeat. That means 3 vets who are sitting around for 3 rounds saying WTF!

So my revised suggestion is this - just give each newbie something like 5 total speed games to play forever, maybe even just let them play them during the first 24-hours. Once that's up, either they know what it's about and will pay, or they'll get the idea of sequential vs. freestyle and figure out that regular games take a few days...

BTW - the free membership here rocks! You just have to get a little familiar with how to pick the right games.
