Increase the turn time for Duels

Discussion and questions about the latest version of Chaos Reborn. Not for bugs, but for comments about the game play.

  • Whilst certainly some players can play effectively with a 90 second turn time, others can't. To which turn times of 90 seconds min disclude a number of players from taking part in this game mode. This is true for experienced players, never mind new ones.

    Speaking of which; there's hopefully soon going to be a new group of players joining CR as a result of the free steam keys given to Phoenix Point backers. Those players (assuming that they're from an X-com) background are used to playing a slow tactical game, not a quick time limited one.

    With an increased time limit for duel matches,imho it should be 2 mins rather than 90 seconds, you've a better chance of retaining those players than with the current time limit..

  • Much as I'd love 1-minute duels, the current time limit is 90 seconds per turn.

  • I guess the pertinent question is: What competition is available within the game for people who either prefer to (or need to) play live matches slowly?

    For live matches?

    As an aside the asynch league is also excluding people. a) Anyone who isn't able to make a turn every 48 hours. b) Anyone who prefers games of more than 4 players. c) Anyone who prefers team games.

    Aren't League games 2 minute turns?



    They are, which is the average time setting available - What is there for players who prefer 3 minute matches?

    When they are complete and implemented, Demigod custom matches.

    Which are custom games rather than a competition.
