Check out the new game mode Survivor (in beta):
And the new rule for 50/50 in non random rooms:
We hope you'll like the news/changes
Survivor Mode should have a logo..like the almighty ELO "pill".The no random factor of the mode is great,it tests your ability to take tough decisions match after match. As for the 50/50 improvement....well.....it won me some matches.....GG UR Staff.....I'm really curious what clan combinations are the most effective ...considering that the "environment"(overall life/pillz) changes as you progress
I'm getting very frustrated that so much time is spent making things sexy and introducing new modes, while basic things like the DT timers are still complete bullocks.
I'm playing someone right now who is letting the time bar flash red every single round. I got a bad draw and can't two hit KO, so I've got to sit through a full game. It's been 5 minutes already and will surely be 7 before it's over. There's no reason for a game to last this long. I know, I know, new people need time to think. But no one needs two minutes to think in the final round of a game when they've got no pillz left.
Can we please, please, please fix the DT timers? A simple two-mode, chess-style clock that tracked round time and total time consumed would be perfect, and wouldn't punish someone who legitimately wants to think carefully for one or two rounds.
@Fast Is Fun: i'm glad you appreciate the work we do As for timers, you could have sent us an email to support and I could have investigated the idea. I'll look into it but you have to understand that we have also the mobile version that we can not change as easily as the flash version. Some changes look simple but in fact are much more complicated than you can imagine.
Fraggle, if there was a reliable way to contact the staff, I would. I've raised the issue on the forums multiple times, in e-mails to support / moderators complaining about the slow players, and in private message discussions with more than one of the English-speaking mods. The response has been, uniformly, "people need time to think."
Here's a good example from the latest DT:
15:35 ..you narrowly escaped from suilaly (6-4) - you received : 15 points and 5 clintz
15:26 ..you narrowly escaped from [NAME WITHHELD] (4-1) - you received : 28 points and 5 clintz
Played two painfully slow rounds, and then he timed out of the game. It didn't even go a full four rounds, and still took 7 minutes! 15 points in an amount of time that, with rational play, could have been used for three games. I was in second before joining that game, only 1 point behind the leader. Leaving the game, I was in 19th and 64 points back. One awful player like that completely ruins your chance to win a DT, and it sucks.
