Now when I do a game search for public games I get a whole page of Reserved games which I can't join and don't care about. This should be fixed, it's like forgetting to click "public" and seeing all the private games you can't join.

Definitely something that should be added to the "Game Finder" page. Would reduce the pages of games that are not available to join. I agree, a simple checkbox before submitting or perhaps just not showing games that you are not a reserved player for and therefore cannot Join into.


To be honest I keep checking into the forum, stunned it's not done already. Heh that and adding game date to date finder, but omitting reserveds should be a big priority. It's annoying!

why can't you reserve spots in speed games?

Probably because the spots are coded to stay reserved for 24 hours, but obviously speed games don't last that long. It could also be so freemiums can't get invitations to them that could get around the premium requirement.

Great work! I love the additions!

Only one small problem I see with the Game Invitations is that players can invite anyone to a Tournament game. This could potentially disrupt and delay tournaments if a player accidentally (or otherwise..) invited nonparticipants to the game. I suppose this has always been a problem, as Tournament games are just private games with a header, but with the invitations it seems to me that there is at least the chance that it could happen inadvertently. Perhaps only the Tournament Organizer should be able to invite players to Tournament games?

In any event, I must say I like the way this site is progressing. :)

If as an organizer you find a player inviting non-tournament-participants to the games, I would give them a warning then kick them out of your tournament if they do it again. Or just kick them straight out of the tournament. (As a TD, I would support either one.)

One solution that would help with missing tournament games and with excessive PMs might be to add another tab/link at the top of MY GAMES page that says something like INVITED. Then you get a page where you can see all the settings, etc. of the invited game including if it is a tournament game.

Then when you are invited to a game, the MY GAMES link could say [1 NEW] similar to when you get a PM.

I actually like it the way it is now. when one of my teammates isn't joining the game I can just reserve them the slot and get them in rather than having to wait for the TO to do it.

My experience after a week or so of using this is that it'll be helpful in some situations and not as much in others but that's true with most things and its a great addition.

Any chance we can get an auto-join game on the PM's we get for the invites?

However not everybody joins the games within 24 hours. Is there a way to make sure either the spot stays reserved for longer, or the invite PM will not delete automatically after 24 hours, so players can still join the game later on without me needing to send them the password via a new PM.


Lack opted for a 24 hour reserveration since currently Conquer Club mostly operates on a 24 hour time-scale---think of Turn times for Sequential and Freestyle, etc. If there is enough demand for a longer reserveration period, we can look into that after the 24 hour reserveration has had some time for us to acquire data.


--Andy


So far this is working great for me in tournaments, although I don't use it for all my tournament games. I would very much welcome a 48 hour period instead of the 24, then I would use it a lot more....

I also understand the problems with using it for speed games, would be nice though, if there was a way to solve those issues. I would definitely use it for speed games.

I think reserving games in private or tournament games should be exclusive for the player that set-up the game.
In 1 of my tournament doubles games, 1 player joined and then accidently send out an invite to 1 of his friends (who is not in the tournament), which resulted in this friend being teamed up with 1 of the players of the opposing team.
If reserving is only exclusive for the tournament organiser, this kind of mistake can be prevented.
