Game lobby complaint/request Tue, 24 April 2012 00:46
Hello... I've played a fair amount of Memoir 44 Online and have recently started playing TTR Online as well. I think it's a great version of the game, but the one thing that drives me crazy is the game lobby.

It often feels like I'm playing whack-a-mole as I see games come and go in the blink of an eye. I see a game that I'd like to join, click on it, then try and click on the join button before it all goes away. I'm generally just looking at the map type and player count... never mind comments like if a game is private or not, asks for players of a particular rating, etc.

I think it would be great if there was some sort of matchmaking option. Let me pick out a few options like USA Big Cities and Europe, 4+ players, etc. and then simply hit a button... the program then creates a game with other people whose choices also match up with mine.

FWIW, I'd like a similar system with Memoir 44 Online, but it's less an issue there as the community is smaller.

Thorjin, have you tried using the filter option? I usually play only 2 player US and setting those filter options cuts way down on the number of games showing. (I just wish the filter didn't have to be set each time you restart the game - would be nice if your account could have a "permanent" setting for the filter.)

Another possible solution would be for you to create a game with the parameters that you want. That way other people are trying to join your game instead of you trying to join them! Cool

I THINK you can join by double-clicking on the game... I could be hallucinating - when the game comes back up I'll try it again to see...
