I want to put an end to this rumor mongering about what cards are coming out. I don't mean the discussions about what the next clan may be, I mean these strange rumors like a Pussycat Card named Sylvia. (Which by the way I have on authority from the Design team does not exist, nor do they plan to make anything of the sort).
Only and I do mean ONLY the design staff knows what cards are coming next, and I assure you, they aren't telling.
Even when I did the English editing for the cards, I only knew clans and names. Not stats. No, I don't do that anymore and even if I did, I wouldn't tell anyone what I knew. Lets put it this way, the last new clan I did any editing on was Freaks. One of the newer Admins picked up the job before I became an Admin, and I've been busy with other things.
So basically, anyone who tells you, Oh well I heard X card is coming. Not happening. Only a handful of staff know what cards are coming beforehand. Those are the people on the design team, and since they aren't going to tell you, there's no reason to believe anything anyone tells you about new card X.
While we're rumormongering, can the staff tell us what's being done to make the dailies suck less? When the rooms were merged a few months ago, Fraggle said there would be changes coming to reduce the amount of cheating and make it harder for people to stall/slow-walk the games, but nothing has happened since then.
Can we please please please get a change to the timers? Twice today I've been in the top 10 of a daily, only to run into a moron or sore loser who stretches the game out as long as possible. It shouldn't take over a minute to play your last card when you've got no pillz left, for goodness sake. It's essentialy impossible to win, and really hard to even finish in the top ten, if you run into a couple folks who are mad they can't win and make every move as slowly as possible.
Any news at all?
Ok. I've personally talked to Fraggle about this and I'm currently helping beta test the new version of the game. However, that aside. We can no more control people than we can tell the sun not to rise. If we shorten timers, then that means people who actually legitimately need time to think will get penalized.
I understand how frustrating it is for someone to do that to you. I rarely come close to the top 10 and I get it done to me on a regular basis. While there actually may be a few cases of malicious players trying to boost their friends into the top 10, more often than not it's as you said yourselves. Sore losers.
The new system will be improving the quality of the game. But there are some things that are unreasonable to expect. We can't stop people from being jerks. I wish we could.
We can add servers to make the site run smoother, we can update the system to make it as fair and as unlikely to challenge problem players as we can. However, some of that is on you. You do have a refuse button when a red or orange face player challenges you. (Or anyone else). The new system WILL help with the challenges of reds and oranges, but even it is not infallible.
We will do our best to bring you the best gaming experience possible. But we still can't control, you. Keep that in mind. You're complaining about players and expecting the system to fix it. We can only do so much, though we will do as much as we can.
Why don't u create a new room for those who want to play fast?
In this 'fast playing room' every player must make a move within 30 seconds.
if a player take longer than that, he will be 'kick-out' from the room. of course he can still go and play in normal room.
Those with poor network connection or prefer to take few minutes to think, can stay in normal room.
What you guys do is great.
And about facing someone that is stalling/losing connection/going afk to feed his parakeet while being in the top 10 and then losing that spot: that stuff happens to other people as well, you know, and there is the possibility that if it's not happening to anyone at all and you play your match fast enough, you still might fall out of top10 since other people finish their matches in time as well -.-
it's the same for everyone
just like everyone can fall out of the top 10 because Lamar Cr loses a 39:20 fight to some random crappy 2* card
stupid randomizer, i hate that thing and whats even worse, the hate is more than just mutual
but even that is the same for everyone, it can happen, sometimes you are lucky, sometimes you are not
everyone that plays a tournament has the same problems, everytime
and like Storm said, you can switch a system as much as you want and you can improve everything to perfection even, one thing will always screw things up: the human
just face it, you can't change the players at all by changing the software they use, it's a fact
stuff like changing the timer some more is not a good idea since some people do need the time to think or sometimes people do have to go afk suddenly and punishing that is just out of the question I think
anyways, keep up the good work UR staff
P.S. can you boost the damage of Erzsebet to like 5 ? yeah, yeah, I know your answer, oh well, it was a try
I think the UR staff do a wonderful job.i mean considering the game is played all a round the world(taking in account how many people there in the world... OVER A BILLION) how can you not aspect to run into one or two sore losers or cheaters < don't get me wrong i hate the fools who come into the training rooms with a fully leveled deck and whoop my assbut thats part of human nature we are competitive and will do whatever we can to beat the other guy and if we can't we get that guy annoyed so that they won't play, <YOU CAN NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT>(un less you god which i doubt) so please stop crying and saying its unfair, NO ONE EVER SAID LIFE WAS FAIR, and deal with it! im looking at you ThunderStorm, Akuaku and Juggalo-Pride :
