Hi Guys,

As a test we removed the running games from the list, as they won't start soon anyway. What you think of it?

Regards,

Geert

OMG cant imagine any advantage of this. you cant watch any high games or find the highest rooms.

OF COURSE i want to see the running games in the lobby

 

Yes because its easier to find the room who has the highest ranks. When somebody wants that noone should join his room he can put a pasword.

Its also necessary because when u want to rejoin a room u have to find the room and without the running games lobby u cant rejoin. It happend to me today.

I started a game but then i left the room. After that i was not sure if i started the game or not. But i couldnt look for it. Because u cant see the running games.

Omg, a poll for this? really?

Reason I need it for (in order of importance) :

1. Find highest ranked games

2. Log in, look through the running games list and find people you like to play with even if you dont got them in friend list

3. Should I open a new TEAM/FFA room or are there already enough?

4. No search option = only way to find people you dont got in friends list

 

 

If a "show running games" button is technically inefficient or something keep it the way it was before. You raised the premium membership fee.. I absolutely understand that, your game is awesome and you worked hard for it... but pls guys, provide the bandwidth wich is needed. Since you started testing this I decided two times not to play and when I played I didnt played with this account....

You remove the feature and THEN you put up a poll?!  Everything's backwards with you ppl...

In my case, I like the running games list.. so at least make a "show/hide" button for this, if it's so much of a bother..

I don't need that list. I only look at the list of rooms in preparation and if there are no interesting ones I either make my own or wait and refresh until a good one comes up. I very rarely join running games because then I might miss another good room.

The rejoin system works differently for me. If I was kicked and I log on again the games asks me if I want to rejoin the last game.

 

Problem of that is: It happens as often as normal disconnects that you accidentally press ESC. Then youre not able to rejoin again. Am I right`? xD

How can you accidentally hit ESC? There are just two buttons to press and they're both (default) on the other side of the keyboard. Biggrin

And yea, i'd like to see the running games as well, for the reasons already stated.

I know -____-

I rage to often xD

No but im playing on a laptop atm and there are the volume buttons right next to the ESC ^ ^

But why not rejoin when left for other reason than a disconnect? Maybe I miss some exploit possibility...

When you hit ESC while you are ingame, the rejoin message also appears.

In one of the next updates, you can toggle between seeing the running games or not. Perhaps we will even make this a preference on your account that can be saved and remembered.

I think it's the time to make a : Quick game    option. For guests, because the preference about you talk will be not saved for guests.

Quick game:

Join a unranked room with no limit and making a room if the other are full or if there aren't any preparing servers.

Quick game is a nice idea :) It shouldn't be only for guests.

It is back for premium users, not for registered or other people. This is an temporary solution.

best regards,

When is this comming back for non-premium users? I liked and used this quite a lot, and I hope it will return soon. Its annoying when you dont know how many people are online, because you can't see the running games and also when you don't know if there is any other room coming soon that you can't see. I would almost buy premium only to see the running games again, and I think it was not your intension to force people to buy premium this wayxD
