Call for duels

  • You know when you can invade a battle? You do, you get a nice notification. Well, the same call for action should be shown when you are in the multiplayer lobby and someone has joined the duel queue and waited there say more than 10 seconds. And that prompt should stay up until they have been matched or they cancel. And same again for league matches and perhaps even an option for custom games. I'm tired of waiting in queues :cry: And given there aren't that many players around all the time, this would serve as a great way to engage each other. What do you think?

  • Kind of agree... The things you mention are all a symptom of too many game options and too few players. A sensible option could be to show where other players waiting for live matches are - as soon as you try to create a live match, or for others waiting for a live match.

  • That could actually be really awesome coming to think of it. Replacing queues with lobbies were the notification pops up.
    Might have to rework the GUI a bit to make room for something like that....Although what i'm envisioning is looking alot like a regular old lobby coming to think of it..xD

    But being able to turn on pop up notifications for whatever game mode would be mighty nice. perhaps a default for when the player population drops below 30-40 so players....still some kind of customization so your main menu ain't blowing up too much on you.

  • Good suggestion - Live games which are waiting for players should really be visible from the main screen of the game.

    Maybe an indicator showing how many asynch games of each type are waiting for players too.

  • seems simple enough to counter the problem of the "i purposefully lose/win to exploit ranks" thing by just not allowing you to join battles with them so often. This is were custom lobbies would be useful to coordinate further games with a particular someone. :D
