Have games not ended (including not started yet) on top of the list (so we can find game chats easily there when My games has filters activated) (right now those unfinished games are ordered by creating date despite the filter end date activated)
Active games are already on the top of the list in default? Only games that haven`t started yet are at the bottom. Imo that is the right place for them. But I can see that that might be different for rp or diplo players. The unfinished games aren`t filtered on created date, but on the time that it has been your turn. After that come games with unread chat messages and then games in which it isn`t your turn, nor in which there are unread messages.
Move games ended in Past games only when summary screen has been seen and summary button has been hit
100% Agree. Now I sometimes don`t realize a game has been finished. This would be a very nice feature. Tournaments
Move tournaments where we are eliminated in a new sub section "Past Tournaments" (so we have a clean list of active tournaments)
Personally don`t care that much. The way it is right now allows me to look back at interesting and ungoing tournaments with ease. Your solution would make for a cleaner tournament tab, but would make it harder to find the interesting tournaments. I don`t really look at my tournament pages to often so it doesn`t bother me to much. And I`m also active in 16 tournaments so the list isn`t to long anyways. If you are participating in a lot of tournaments I can understand this wish.
Color "X places left" in red (so we see it and help with filling)
It is obvious enough as it is now isn`t it? It just stays at the same spot, you can always look at it once you know where to find it. It could be a nice addition, but I don`t think it will be on Fizzers immediate roadmap.
Order My Tournaments in some logic way ie by map or offer order options
I do agree that "My Tournaments" could use some other options like the "My Games" tab has. I don`t know if ordering by map is one of the options I would go with. (An option could be to put tournaments in which you are still alive on the top, and tournaments in which you are eliminated at the bottom. That way you also deal with your 1st point in the tournament section)
Add boot time options to join or decline an invitation (so that tournaments don't end up cancelled)
Or just get rid of inactive people on your invite list (or at least don`t invite them) so that all people who are invited will join or decline quickly enough anyways.
Fix the scrolling in Players bracket
It indeed glitches sometimes. A fix would be nice.Games
Make history light grey and not clickable at turn 0 (so players looking for settings wont click on history by mistake and waste their time with the pop up)
I understand this is annoying. But it can be helped by just taking your time.
Make ctrl click on Create game available to open it in a new tab when you are on a current game screen
When you want to cancel an attack not completed and you issue an attack of 0 army instead of Cancel the order, just make it possible to cancel it this way too without an error pop up.
Not sure about this one. Sometimes I, for whatever reason, accidentally attack or transfer with 0. Getting rid of the warning would mean that I sometimes screw up an important attack. I think the warning should stay.
Prevent Bank Time from running while you are committed, so you can still modified without the bad surprise that your time has ran out without warning and you got booted (original idea was to prevent stalling, well modifying an order previously committed shows that you dont plan to stall).
It does give you an unfair advantage as long as your enemy hasn`t commited. He thinks three minutes of his banked boot time, while you commit after 1 minute and then continue to think for 2 more minutes. If you then want to chance your order, you`ve thought 3 minutes about it, not 1 minute. To keep it fair, your banked time should be reduced with 3 minutes, not 1.
Activate "team chat" for 1 player team games (so you can leave notes in 1v1 and ffa MD games, useful when you are in 20 MD games at once)
Has been requested many times, its time that this gets implanted.
Display OD card played as 1st order and before opponent 2nd order, not just after opponent's last order (so it's less confusing and you know from the beginning why your orders are not coming)
Personally have never had any problems with this, but it is not a bad suggestion. If more players are confused by this, then it should probably be implanted.
Make a sound (that you can disactivate) when someone joins the open game you're waiting to be filled if the window is not active (you're browsing a different tab)
Make a sound (that you can disactivate) when someone chats in the open game you're waiting to be filled if the window is not active
Agreed, I do not see a reason to not have this. Dashboard
Add an icon "N" for a private note left on the player (and leave N if the player has both a private note and is BL'd as usually a BL comes with a note)
This would be usefull indeed!
Add icon "4x5" for "4 starting spots of 5 armies
Personally wouldn`t want this, because I fear I might confuse the two (4 armies on 5 starting spots), but I can be an idiot. I understand this looks better.
Add icon "8 x 10" for "8 wastelands of 10 armies"
Same as above
Color Commander icon in orange or something else than green, and keep green for standard settings only
Completely agree! This should be done the next update. Common games
Replace the link by the mention "you have no game played with this player" if you don't have any
Agreed, the way it works now is just annoying.
Specify whether the game was played as teammate or opponent
Once again, the way it works right now is just annoying. Please change this as well.
Add a win/loss ratio vs this player for games played as opponents and for games played as teammates
I love winratios and gamestatistics. I would love to see this!Friendlist
Order them by times you invited them in a game first, then by common games, then by last connection
I would prefer the way they are sorted now.
I would like to have separate " friends " and " people with whom I played "
Yup, this is what I need. I believe Fizzer has already talked about an actual friendlist before, its just not on his immediate roadmap :( Fora
Emails with one player should always go in the same thread (like for new generation text messages) instead of having to create a new one and to choose an object which should be replaced by the name of the player you're writing to
I disagree with this one. It is not practical.
Color Player names by their favourite game color
Don`t really see the use of this. It would only be annoying as some names would become hard to read. The fora would also become jittery (?) to look at.AI
Desactivate "treat teammates as ennemies" unless specified in the code
Stop making him attack with 4's only in SR games
Make him try to defend or break (super) bonuses as a priority
I agree with all three.
I see 4 suggestions that imo shouldn`t be implanted (attack with 0, bank time, private mail, different coloured names). There are a few options that I don`t care about (thus there are more prioritizing things to take look at).
Over all a very nice post, would love to have Fizzers reaction to some of your ideas.
If I personally had to suggest a change that hasn`t been listed yet I would say:
Replace the maximum amount of vacation with a maximum amount of days on vacation. This would make it easier for A: people who are leaving for just a weekend. They don`t have to spend a vacation on 3 days. Instead they can just use 3 days. and B: People who are on vacation for longer than 10 days and do not have access to the internet. It is pretty common for people to go on vacation for 14 days, why is the limit only 10? Imo either the limit needs to go up, or it should be changed to a certain amount of days every year.
But I know Fizzer has already said this idea is not on his immediate roadmap. :\
