Make a sign up thread. PSK said sure, but we can confirm with mafioso team later.

just a heads up, something I wanted to try and I'm probably going to give it a go soonish is that instead of having individual sign-ups for each game, we will have 2 floating lists, one for small games, one for large  games. Players can sign up for either or both, then once we have enough people in either queue, we fire that game.

 

Thoughts on it?

since I suggested it I obviously think it's a good idea, but showing my support again anyway as I think this will solve a lot of issues

What's wrong with the current system? What problem does this solve?

 

I think every time we've had multiple games going at the same time, people have disliked it.

It will run smoother, right now every time after a game finishes there's that feeling of waiting X days before another game fills etc. It's inefficient and it's the reason we can't get more than 10/15 people for games sometimes without tagging them 100x, and you had to PM people to sign up. Imagine if you had sign-ups running for the entirety of the game before, you probably would've had the people you need without any effort.

Problem with this is that some people can only play at certain times or under certain conditions eg. Zapp not being able to do 24/24, or people only being able to play games "if they start after a certain day" (which is seen in every signup thread btw)

 

Current system is good, dont try to fix something that aint broke

this is what I envision for the system:

 

game ends, we take a day or two break, gives people time to add/drop. We (mafioso) then decided which game is going next based on how many people are in the queue (assuming we have enough to fire a game). We announce the game that's going next, and host puts up their rules and a tentitive start time. We then give another day or so for the host to get his shit together and for people to add/drop based on the new game, then fire it (assuming the host doesn't need more time or want to start immediantly).

 

that would cover your concerns because it would give people time to drop in/out based on if they like the rules or not.

 

The current system isn't broken, but it is certainly way clunkier than we would like. There's no reason not to try a new system, this is a trial, worst case we can just revert to the current system.

I want to host matrix 6 with the requirement that only experienced players can join

 

(requirement: have had to play at least 5 games, reasonably active and serious. Floating is fine if the posts made actually provide content / reads / serious attempts. Spamming; gamethrowing, meming don't count for active serious game though. The host can refuse players if they have shown this kind of behavior multiple times, and can select who meets the criteria and who doesn't based on personal judgment). Thoughts on this?

 

(in addition; we could also do a "newbie" matrix6 where newer players + 3 more experienced players for balance would play. My goal isn't to exclude new players: but rather to make a seperation between "newbie games" and "experienced games" to prevent irritation: right now the bar is too high and newer players cant keep up)
