@conguero I think the quit button takes care of that. But personally, I follow the words of Henry V "Once more to the breech!" I have had amazing comebacks, and seen others have it.
(That does not work though, if the other players decide to go for the weakest instead of the lstrongest, because they aim for second rank. Those games are hopeless, I agree.)
Leaving of a game/losing connection should result in ELO reduction
Interesting tournament mode with preliminary round/semi finals/finals with watch mode
Guild tournament mode
Possibility to chat with the other players after the game ended
I would actually pay a monthly fee for a good implementation of point 7 and 8.
Catan has base game, 2 expansions and other different customizations... And the new Incas game. And so on.
You can not match people up based on Elo or Karma.
What does ELO mean across different variants!? There was a discussion here recently about playing for 2nd but the main guys pushing for it only play 3 player base, and I play 4 player Catan and consider them slightly different games. I'd probably struggle to compete in any of the other expansions (for a while) until I learned the unique strategies.
@halfmoon How awful! There was one player on Play Catan who used to do that, too. As time went by, people realized it and he landed on many Igno lists. And of course you could see his stuck games hanging in the lobby every day. So others eventually noticed. But reporting the player did not help, it could not be prooven how he did it.
@Administrator I would appreciate the option to turn the chat box into speech bubbles next to the player´s avatar.
After 1 or 2 min the speech bubble would fade away.
That way I could save a lot space for the actual board.
And if I missed anything that was said, I could still turn the chatbox back on with a button, like the one for the trade panel.
@Sista I was really annoyed with the setup at first, too. Like you said, it is a waste of space and cumbersome to build. But I have changed my tune since the introduction of quickbuild (clicking on the spot where you want to build to prompt the building menu) . As yet, the setup for buying development cards still needs improvement.
