I understand that different people will be happy with different speeds, so this is just my opinion. The shorter turns in quickmatch games aren't fun for me. I prefer a more chess-like game with time to consider options.

It'd be great if players could set min/max turn lengths to be matched up with like-minded players. I just don't think I'll play quickmatch games any more with it the way it is.

Play 1v1 Ladder at MME
or Multiday Ladder
In Multiday Ladder you have a wider ranger of Templates like in QMs

Yeah, different people will have different definitions of "quick". Multi-day is a reasonable suggestion but not something I'm interested in.

I see the 'quickmatches are called quick matches for a reason' argument way too often.

Would people be happy with having only 10 seconds per turn? I don't think so.

So, since less time is not necessarily better, a discussion on what the best boot times would be sounds reasonable.

Multiday QM is under 2 days, and that isn't ideal for me and probably others - it's too fast for a MD day imo. QM RT should have at least 3 mins per turn and 3-5 mins banked

couldn't agree more - not enough time to strategize & impossible to even play with the tv on.. need to be 100% focused on the game.. not the casual fun I enjoyed prior to the change

But for all who are online dayly 1d6h is ideal.

I agree it's not best for all. But make it a longer boottime and you will have someone else complaining.

Just the way it is..

The 1 minute +2 banked thing on QM currently is awful. I've only played 10 games and "booted" in like 3 of them. Not literal boots due to the way boots now work, it just forced me to instantly commit, but it's still shitty. 1 minute is not long enough to properly think about turns strategically.

I also agree that 1 minute w/ 2 minutes banked time on the Small Earth templates is too short.

And I play on PC and I can't imagine how it feels like on mobile.

a more chess-like game


Ever heard of speed chess bozo?

On a more serious note, I suggest playing games with longer turn times if the quick matches aren't your style. Some of us like the thrill of a quick plow, but it's not for everyone.

Perhaps what we need are two Small Earth templates, just like there are two types of fast chess games:

  • Small Earth Blitz (3min per turn) and
  • Small Earth Bullet (1min per turn)
Then everybody can check/uncheck whichever they like.

Play fast when you're in games with a fast clock. I am going the other way here, 3 days is way way way too long for tournaments and the multiday ladder and everything else. But I abide, because those are the rules. And I personally love the quick match clock. It's awesome, the games are actually played!

If you don't like Quick matches, I'd genuinely suggest not playing quick matches.

30 turns with only 1 min really isn't great - https://www.warzone.com/MultiPlayer?GameID=18274865. Too difficult to keep up. Needed at least 2 mins minimum per turn just to think it through and a further couple to make orders

"If you don't like Quick matches, I'd genuinely suggest not playing quick matches."

That was my whole point though - I loved Quick Matches, that's all I ever played. They're just too quick now and I don't enjoy it any more.

That said, I didn't actually realize until now that different template have different time limits. I always preferred the small maps but I see that some larger maps have longer time limits. I'll probably play those some times. It'd be even better if we have longer time versions of the small Earth maps though.

Thank you to everyone for taking time to share your opinions!
