I make a game with disableing the button in Basic settings "Game starts when all players join" but the game still starts when all open seats are filled.

You can only use that option in multi-day games.

That's not gonna happen. It used to be allowed, but this feature was removed a couple of months ago.

You can bypass it by just inviting a dead account, then you will still determine when the game starts.

It shouldn't be allowed. Too many people would game the system to earn boot victories.

If you are too concerned about the quality (or lack thereof) of your opposition, you should take advantage of the open seat prerequisites.

Well if they allowed in multy day games, why not in real time

Is that a serious question?

A multi-day game typically has a 3-day boot time. A real-time game typically has a ~5 minute boot time. It's much easier to delay the start of a RT game in hopes of your opponent missing the 5 minute window than it is for a 3-day MD window.

but we need this option in real time games, since we open a game while we are at finishing other game so that people fill in and when we finish game we could just start other game, if you know what I mean :/

Not fair/polite to make the other people wait though either. Have higher banked boot times, particularly on the first turn. That should mostly resolve your issue.

it could be write as description (we are in this game, will start this one if that finishes) or make something that games starts if host finishes other game and to be able to poin out witch one. I know this sounds complicated but I think it looks doable :/

this way people can play consecutive games with less waiting, I spend 70% of time just waiting game to start

or set up that game starts in some time like (game will begin in 21:00h) and to add clock on games sites

this way waiting for the game will be less and people will play more since they dont have to wait. I just what to minimize wasting time waiting :/ thats my point

It does nothing to reduce the potential for misuse by people looking for cheap wins via boot. There is a reason it was taken away in the first place.

I fail to see why a higher banked boot for turn 1 wouldn't solve your problem. Or why you can't juggle two games for a short duration.

there can be set that once some player joins some team it cannot be changed to another, like having a settincs (like pure skill) that uses lock for some settings to be used
P.S. I don't whant to wait sooooo looong for games to start man :/

Your setting doesn't change the initial problem.

Creator makes RT game with short boot time, gets opponent, then waits 20+ minutes to start game. Opponent no longer present, win by cheap boot.

Can only be done with delayed game start.

Unranked ladder with faster update.

Pretty much like a queue lobby system (Starcraft and other big multiplayer games).

"Do something man on this issue"? I'm thinking something was lost in translation here...

I have zero control or power here, I'm just saying why your desired configuration is a bad idea and would be abused by many.

my brain thinks that its better to spend time on sometheng that saves time than to waste time waiting
So let us all unite in asking admins to solve to-much-wasting-time-on-waiting problem
:] much thanks for help

I would like to point out, when I used to play regularly, I would play 2-4 5 minute boot games at a time without getting booted..

and the game makes a noise when it starts or the turn changes, you can easily listen as you play, or even do other things.

and the admins are more likely to attempt to prevent abuse rather than saving the possibility of a couple minutes for a few niche situations, esp since open seats only stay open for a relatively short duration.

say you take a similar situation, guy starts agame says he'll start it once he finishes dinner, game fills up, then people get frustrated and leave *as they invariably do, since we know people can't read settings* and when they elave, open seats reopen, but now the open seats are no longer advertised because it's been too long, now guy comes back and he gets mad because he still hasn't finished filling his game and has to wait.
worse, now he either has to play with reduced players, however many stayed, or he has to re-create the game.. which ends up having wasted the time of all players that joined in that time frame, without having saved guy any time.

tl;dr what you're asking will only help a few, and will hurt a few, while creating a method of abuse.

what's the problem with disabling this option if someone choose 'real-time' game. Now one can use it with no ill intentions and in result be booted because game start without his knowledge.

honestly the only real solution would be set start times, but that seems bulky and difficult..
IE, you create a game and set it up to start on every 5 minute of the hour *5-10-15 etc* then whoever joined would know to check every 5 minutes, and whoever created would know to check every 5, until all spots are filled up..
