UPDATE : Jan 02 2021

UPDATE

So we are slowly working our way though the process of integrating the Beta games with the players scores. Not only does this involve scores and ranks, but also the scoreboard, which comprises Most Defeated Opponents, UDOs, and all the other lists. So we are slowly checking them off one at a time.

There is one issue that should be addressed when we are ready to "go live"... and that is:

What do we do with the current active Beta demo games?

When we are ready to deploy the integrated scores, there will still be a lot of active Beta Demo games. So the options are:

  1. Delete all active demo games, and have players start new games that count towards their scores
  2. Keep the demo games running, and at the same time, any new games will be integrated with the score.

The second option might be a bit tricky because right now there is no way to distinguish between the current Demo Games and any game created in the future that affects a players score. So we would have to take some more time and create a method of telling them apart, like changing the background color in the listing, or adding a note to the demo games, or something like that. Which of course, would just add more time to the process.....

So I know which one I'm leaning towards, but here's a poll to hear your opinions....

P.S. We also have the option of keeping all games that have not started yet (unfilled) and converting them to the new "regular score counting" games. Which we will probably do, unless someone gives a great reason why we should delete the unfilled games also. Thanks!

:dito: plus you don't have to waste time coding the demo games...you can start coding other stuff like getting beta back up to how the flash site was.

ok...i've been scouting and once you get the site restored to it's formal glory...i'll hit you with suggestions that will make it even better!:top:

I wouldn't be playing beta games of I even thought the scores would integrate. Please delete all the games so at least we don't get screwed over.

Option 1, for the reason cited by JCUK. But how about a few days warning before the demo beta games are deleted so as many as possible can be completed?

That is not quite what I was saying....

  • Current Beta games will always be score-free.
  • After integration, only newly created Beta games will count towards the score.
  • All unfinished score-free Beta games that you already started, will still be score-free.

The question was about having both scoring, and non-scoring games running at the same time.

Which it seems like players really don't want.... So it's easier for everyone if we just start fresh anyway. :)

I voted for Option 2 before I read the thread (because it was at the top of the page) but now I want to change my vote for Option 1, for all of the reasons stated above. And BTW, I love the new Great Land Rush map! It's really quite different from any of the other maps, and fun to play.

Also....option 1 is the least confusing option for everyone....can you imagine players remembering which games count and which games don't for points?? Option 1 gives all players a clear cut division between yes points count vs no it doesn't....less confusion for everyone in a time of confusion! :lollypop:
