Here is my wishing list. Feel free to comment / suggest yours.

Past games :
  • [possible bug] Have games not ended (including not started yet) on top of the list (so we can find game chats easily there when My games has filters activated) (right now those unfinished games are ordered by creating date despite the filter end date activated)
  • Move games ended in Past games only when summary screen has been seen and summary button has been hit

    Tournaments :
  • Move tournaments where we are eliminated in a new sub section "Past Tournaments" (so we have a clean list of active tournaments)
  • Color "X places left" in red (so we know its not an active tournament and we can help with filling)
  • Order My Tournaments in some logic way ie by map or offer order options
  • Add boot time options to join or decline an invitation (so that tournaments don't end up cancelled)
  • Fix the scrolling in Players bracket

    Actual games :
  • Make history light grey and not clickable at turn 0 (so players looking for settings wont click on history by mistake and waste their time with the pop up)
  • [possible bug] Make ctrl click on Create game available to open it in a new tab when you are on a current game screen
  • [possible bug] When you want to cancel an attack not completed and you issue an attack of 0 army instead of Cancel the order, just make it possible to cancel it this way too without an error pop up.
  • Prevent Bank Time from running while you are committed, so you can still modified without the bad surprise that your time has ran out without warning and you got booted (original idea was to prevent stalling, well modifying an order previously committed shows that you don't plan to stall).
  • Activate "team chat" for 1 player team games (so you can leave notes in 1v1 and ffa MD games, useful when you are in 20 MD games at once)
  • [possible bug] Display OD card played as 1st order and before opponent 2nd order, not just after opponent's last order (so it's less confusing and you know when watching the turn why your orders are not coming)
  • Make a sound (that you can disactivate) when someone joins the open game you're waiting to be filled if the window is not active (you're browsing a different tab)
  • Make a sound (that you can disactivate) when someone chats in the open game you're waiting to be filled if the window is not active
  • As suggested by PS, confirm phase should show on the map which order you are highlighting, so you dont need to go back in attack phase to see this crucial information at this stage
  • [possible bug] Remove the "base armies received" in Player stats as Armies actually deployed is the same but more accurate as takes into account super bonuses.

    Dashboard :
  • Add an icon "N" (or make the box flash) for a private note left on the player (and leave N if the player has both a private note and is BL'd as usually a BL comes with a note) and display the note left when hovering the icon
  • Add the text "4 random [or manual] starting picks of 5" when we hover the distribution icon for games with 4 random [or manual] starting spots of 5 armies
  • Add an icon "Wastelands" with the text "8 wastelands of 10" when we hover it for "8 wastelands of 10 armies"
  • Add an icon for "WR" as its not common
    [Done (Fizzer) - Add the list of the cards when we hover the icon Cards]
  • Color Commander icon in orange or something else than green, and keep green for standard settings only
  • Add an icon for Multi Attack

    Games played together :
  • Replace the link by the mention "you have no game played with this player" if you don't have any
  • Specify whether the game was played as teammate or opponent
  • Add a win/loss ratio vs this player for games played as opponents and for games played as teammates

    Friends & Search Player :
  • Order them by times you invited them for games or tournaments first, then by common games, then last connection (so you find faster the players you regularly invite to games and tournaments)

    Forum / Emails :
  • Color Player names by their favourite game color
  • Emails with one player should always go in the same thread (like for new generation text messages) instead of having to create a new one and to choose an object which should be replaced by the name of the player you're writing to

    AI :
  • Desactivate "treat teammates as ennemies" unless specified in the code
  • Stop making him attack with 4's only in SR games
  • Make him try to defend or break (super) bonuses as a priority

    Profile :
  • Make teammate names (ladder teams) linked to their profile

    Clans :
    [Done (Muli 1.12.12) - Make a Search function similar to Search players]
  • Add the Clan icon between the email enveloppe and the name in top right corner of every page

    Blacklist :
  • Show whether you re blacklisted by a player in dashboard, receive a notification, and have a page list of players who blacklisted you
  • Allow "block" instead (or on top of) of blacklist, which would only prevent blocked players from joining your team (but can join opponent or random team games)

    This is the only one I disagree with for several reasons. Anyhow, the rest is definetely a great idea, and would result in a lot of small quality of life updates - excellent for the improval of the game itself. And none of them sounds hard to code in.

    Past Games
    Have games not ended (including not started yet) on top of the list (so we can find game chats easily there when My games has filters activated) (right now those unfinished games are ordered by creating date despite the filter end date activated)

    Active games are already on the top of the list in default? Only games that haven`t started yet are at the bottom. Imo that is the right place for them. But I can see that that might be different for rp or diplo players. The unfinished games aren`t filtered on created date, but on the time that it has been your turn. After that come games with unread chat messages and then games in which it isn`t your turn, nor in which there are unread messages.

    Move games ended in Past games only when summary screen has been seen and summary button has been hit

    100% Agree. Now I sometimes don`t realize a game has been finished. This would be a very nice feature.



    Tournaments
    Move tournaments where we are eliminated in a new sub section "Past Tournaments" (so we have a clean list of active tournaments)

    Personally don`t care that much. The way it is right now allows me to look back at interesting and ungoing tournaments with ease. Your solution would make for a cleaner tournament tab, but would make it harder to find the interesting tournaments. I don`t really look at my tournament pages to often so it doesn`t bother me to much. And I`m also active in 16 tournaments so the list isn`t to long anyways. If you are participating in a lot of tournaments I can understand this wish.

    Color "X places left" in red (so we see it and help with filling)

    It is obvious enough as it is now isn`t it? It just stays at the same spot, you can always look at it once you know where to find it. It could be a nice addition, but I don`t think it will be on Fizzers immediate roadmap.

    Order My Tournaments in some logic way ie by map or offer order options

    I do agree that "My Tournaments" could use some other options like the "My Games" tab has. I don`t know if ordering by map is one of the options I would go with. (An option could be to put tournaments in which you are still alive on the top, and tournaments in which you are eliminated at the bottom. That way you also deal with your 1st point in the tournament section)

    Add boot time options to join or decline an invitation (so that tournaments don't end up cancelled)

    Or just get rid of inactive people on your invite list (or at least don`t invite them) so that all people who are invited will join or decline quickly enough anyways.

    Fix the scrolling in Players bracket

    It indeed glitches sometimes. A fix would be nice.



    Games
    Make history light grey and not clickable at turn 0 (so players looking for settings wont click on history by mistake and waste their time with the pop up)

    I understand this is annoying. But it can be helped by just taking your time.

    Make ctrl click on Create game available to open it in a new tab when you are on a current game screen

    Agreed.

    When you want to cancel an attack not completed and you issue an attack of 0 army instead of Cancel the order, just make it possible to cancel it this way too without an error pop up.

    Not sure about this one. Sometimes I, for whatever reason, accidentally attack or transfer with 0. Getting rid of the warning would mean that I sometimes screw up an important attack. I think the warning should stay.

    Prevent Bank Time from running while you are committed, so you can still modified without the bad surprise that your time has ran out without warning and you got booted (original idea was to prevent stalling, well modifying an order previously committed shows that you dont plan to stall).

    It does give you an unfair advantage as long as your enemy hasn`t commited. He thinks three minutes of his banked boot time, while you commit after 1 minute and then continue to think for 2 more minutes. If you then want to chance your order, you`ve thought 3 minutes about it, not 1 minute. To keep it fair, your banked time should be reduced with 3 minutes, not 1.

    Activate "team chat" for 1 player team games (so you can leave notes in 1v1 and ffa MD games, useful when you are in 20 MD games at once)

    Has been requested many times, its time that this gets implanted.

    Display OD card played as 1st order and before opponent 2nd order, not just after opponent's last order (so it's less confusing and you know from the beginning why your orders are not coming)

    Personally have never had any problems with this, but it is not a bad suggestion. If more players are confused by this, then it should probably be implanted.

    Make a sound (that you can disactivate) when someone joins the open game you're waiting to be filled if the window is not active (you're browsing a different tab)

    Make a sound (that you can disactivate) when someone chats in the open game you're waiting to be filled if the window is not active

    Agreed, I do not see a reason to not have this.



    Dashboard
    Add an icon "N" for a private note left on the player (and leave N if the player has both a private note and is BL'd as usually a BL comes with a note)

    This would be usefull indeed!

    Add icon "4x5" for "4 starting spots of 5 armies

    Personally wouldn`t want this, because I fear I might confuse the two (4 armies on 5 starting spots), but I can be an idiot. I understand this looks better.

    Add icon "8 x 10" for "8 wastelands of 10 armies"

    Same as above

    Color Commander icon in orange or something else than green, and keep green for standard settings only

    Completely agree! This should be done the next update.



    Common games
    Replace the link by the mention "you have no game played with this player" if you don't have any

    Agreed, the way it works now is just annoying.

    Specify whether the game was played as teammate or opponent

    Once again, the way it works right now is just annoying. Please change this as well.

    Add a win/loss ratio vs this player for games played as opponents and for games played as teammates

    I love winratios and gamestatistics. I would love to see this!


    Friendlist
    Order them by times you invited them in a game first, then by common games, then by last connection

    I would prefer the way they are sorted now.

    I would like to have separate " friends " and " people with whom I played "

    Yup, this is what I need. I believe Fizzer has already talked about an actual friendlist before, its just not on his immediate roadmap :(



    Fora
    Emails with one player should always go in the same thread (like for new generation text messages) instead of having to create a new one and to choose an object which should be replaced by the name of the player you're writing to

    I disagree with this one. It is not practical.

    Color Player names by their favourite game color

    Don`t really see the use of this. It would only be annoying as some names would become hard to read. The fora would also become jittery (?) to look at.



    AI
    Desactivate "treat teammates as ennemies" unless specified in the code

    Stop making him attack with 4's only in SR games

    Make him try to defend or break (super) bonuses as a priority

    I agree with all three.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I see 4 suggestions that imo shouldn`t be implanted (attack with 0, bank time, private mail, different coloured names). There are a few options that I don`t care about (thus there are more prioritizing things to take look at).

    Over all a very nice post, would love to have Fizzers reaction to some of your ideas.

    If I personally had to suggest a change that hasn`t been listed yet I would say:

    Replace the maximum amount of vacation with a maximum amount of days on vacation. This would make it easier for A: people who are leaving for just a weekend. They don`t have to spend a vacation on 3 days. Instead they can just use 3 days. and B: People who are on vacation for longer than 10 days and do not have access to the internet. It is pretty common for people to go on vacation for 14 days, why is the limit only 10? Imo either the limit needs to go up, or it should be changed to a certain amount of days every year.

    But I know Fizzer has already said this idea is not on his immediate roadmap. :\

    Thanks for taking the time to read and your comments Min34 :-). Ill answer you where I feel needed. Please note : I've modified slightly the Dashboard part (modification => instead of adding icon, using the existing icons and just add a text highlighted when you hover the icon).

    Active games are already on the top of the list in default? Only games that haven`t started yet are at the bottom. Imo that is the right place for them. But I can see that that might be different for rp or diplo players. The unfinished games aren`t filtered on created date, but on the time that it has been your turn. After that come games with unread chat messages and then games in which it isn`t your turn, nor in which there are unread messages.

    Active games started but you've committed your turn doesnt show up at the top either. All active games should come at the top as they will obviously end after your just ended games... Plus you may want to check what active games you're in, especially when your My games is cleared using filters & Muli's script.

    It does give you an unfair advantage as long as your enemy hasn`t commited. He thinks three minutes of his banked boot time, while you commit after 1 minute and then continue to think for 2 more minutes. If you then want to chance your order, you`ve thought 3 minutes about it, not 1 minute. To keep it fair, your banked time should be reduced with 3 minutes, not 1.

    I still wouldnt mind. Time is to prevent stalling. Let's keep the strategic part to the maximum. Ideally we want everybody to place their best orders in the shortest time, but priority is to allow players to be happy with their orders, as long as they don't abuse or stall. Worse case though as your point is fair, add a count of your remaining bank time in case you click modify, so you have no surprise.

    Display OD card played as 1st order and before opponent 2nd order, not just after opponent's last order (so it's less confusing and you know from the beginning why your orders are not coming)

    Personally have never had any problems with this, but it is not a bad suggestion. If more players are confused by this, then it should probably be implanted.

    Technically only your orders of transfers/attacks are delayed, using the card is your first order and only those after are delayed and should be displayed after opponent's. Actually for me it's kind of a bug so i'll add the mention bug there even if it's purely cosmetic.


    Friendlist
    Order them by times you invited them in a game first, then by common games, then by last connection

    I would prefer the way they are sorted now.

    Well if you are used to invite friends to play, you will realise you will invite the same ones most regularly. Now until you have more common games with them than old players you have played so many games with in the past but have left WL since then, they won't show up at the top of your list and you still spend time looking for them or typing their names.

    Maybe a mercy timer of 1,5 minute.

    If you are in a game doing your orders, it is additional 1,5 minute.

    ---

    If you are not in-game when boot time expires, it is boot.


    ***

    The idea of mercy timer is to make some orders to not get booted.

    It will not allow you to think on your orders and make calculations.
    You could have done it before.


    I often go back to a game 2-3 times before deciding on the orders.

    In the order list, add numbers for orders so you can more easily coordinate between teammates.

    "Hey, I'm going to attack [terr name] on order 26, you should follow up and attack it on order 27"

    *squints at the order list and count orders until you reach the 26th and 27th order down.
