"Private Games" (alternative to password games): 12/31/2015 19:46:25

I understand that inactive games (after a certain period) no longer show up in the Open Games field.

The idea is to use this existing feature to enable "private games". I think this would be a welcome feature for a variety of purposes, and clans or map testers particularly will enjoy it and find all kinds of uses for it:

It should also be incredibly simple to implement.

I like it. Don't know how well used it would be, but it would help with screening noobs.

Wouldn't it be just as easy to post a forum thread, then have people pm you for an invite?

5destroyer35,

That's the idea, just much easier. If you post on the forum, then:

1. Someone has to read the thread, go to your Profile, and compose you a private message.
2. You must log on to receive the message, and (optionally) write back.
3. You must find their username and add them as a Friend.
4. You must find them and invite them to the game.
5. They must then accept the invitation.

If it's one-on-one, not a huge hassle. Imagine doing that for a larger game - going through that process 39 times (for a 40-player game!) could easily take a week.

This way, you post on the forum and then:

1. Someone has to read the thread and click on the link.

Done.

You can even set the game to start automatically once people have joined.

I like the idea, but it's pretty niche. I'm not sure that the amount of users would justify its development. We have to keep Fizzer in mind here.

I can't disagree with that.

I have to go through this process for almost every single game I set up, so it would be HUGE for me.

For other players, of course, I have no idea. Hence why it's a uservoice - let people vote if they like it. If you don't want the feature, you shouldn't vote for it.

Having said that, I think implementing this would be incredibly easy and simple, so the payoff (even if only a small minority of Warlight players like the feature) may be worthwhile. (Compared to other Uservoices, most of which would incredible numbers of man-hours to implement.)

My idea

Seems like a great idea, wonder why I didn't think of it ;)

Haha! Fair enough. Sloppy writing on my part, I'll edit it out. Thanks!
