    • IDEA: End Running Game Limit

      OK, before you panic, hear me out:

      Games take WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY TOO LONG to count me as out. Even well after I've been defeated. Which means, at the moment, I have only 6 games running, over a 100 in my archive, and I'm still counted as "in" well after I have lost. What's a solution to this problem? Easy: Remove the limit to how many games you can join.

      It's actually not that complicated. There's a limit, so just remove it. Then, you can join as many games as you want, and if you get overwhelmed, it's your own fault! Everybody wins! Then, even after I've lost all my "All Countries, all in" games, I can still join new ones without waiting for an end that is NEVER going to happen.

      There, I'm done. You can Reee now.
    • I honestly don't understand your problem as the archived games are deleted after 14 days. It would mean that you have started 100 games in 14 days? The game limit is there so that players wouldn't start too many games and then go inactive. This ruins the fun for all players.

      .. right because of such players there is the limit of 50 maps which one can have at the same time ..

      .. you can't remove maps, but only move them to the archive ..
      .. but even if you don't play anymore but are still in the players list of a map, this maps stay in your archive as long as other players are still playing there ..

      .. only after maps are final ended they will disappear in about 14 days from your game list ..
      .. so you either have to wait or must maybe sometimes try to stay on some of your maps ..

      Browser games are an ingenious business idea to lure out money -
      - more or less cleverly camouflaged as a real game sometimes.

      Yeah, problem with your thinking there buddy. I've been inactive for over 2 months on some of those maps. Yet, here I am, unable to LEAVE games and unable to do anything else.

      JestertheSheep, i think we or at least me never get your thinking. Why do you paralel so many games? Why do you start new games and go inactive with others. This kind of behaviour makes the biggest threat to this game. You ruin your maps with your inactivity! I would be happy with the rule, if each player can start monthly 5 games or so, with that we will have interesting games full with active players. However it would be nice to let us able to stop the joining process, in case all country which is interested for me on that map is choosen by others.
    • I go inactive when I die, when I have passed the hope of a return from death, (I.E. one province remaining) or face issues in real life.

      are you sure about this?or 14 days after the game ends?
      After the game ends, but apparently this player doesn't start playing games to finish them but to archive them as soon as the game gets a bit challenging.
      No, I leave when victory is no longer possible, or I wake up to my own defeat.
