How do delete a friendly game or change the game length

Postby seandroog » 17 Jun 2015, 17:25

Not sure where to post this, as I'm not familiar with this forum.

We have created a friendly game. We have never played the game before and I noticed that the 12 hour time limit was too short for my group. I couldn't find out how to extend the time once it was created so I created a new game with 2 day time limits. Now I am trying to delete the first game and it isn't working.

Does anyone know if we can change game length once a game has been created? can we delete games? I know that you wouldn't' want public games deleted, but if it is a game amongst friends, we don't want to have two games going on at the same time.

Thanks,
seandroog

If you ask a Mod when this happens, they can simply change the timings for you. The only issue is that normally we have to have all the players post in the Public Press that they agree, but to be honest in Friends games we don't usually worry about this.

So you now have two games going. I can delete one for you if you like. Let me know which one you want me to kill.

Thank you very much, I would like "european blueprint for armegeddon" deleted. (it still hasn't been confirmed) and "blueprint for armageddon" to be extended to 2 days between turns.

If everyone completes their orders early it will resolve the turns early, right? It won't wait until the 2 days runs out?

Thanks for the quick response.

I'm pretty sure that if and when everyone hits "finalize orders", then it advances. I've seen turns get several hours shaved off this way.

You would need an actual person to confirm this, though.

And I could definitely have the majority of players agree right away, if that is required. a few players take a while to respond, which is why i need to extend the turn time. Might take a day or two for all the players to agree, but we're all new so we're feeling it out and seeing what works best for us.

Would you be able to extend the game we are currently playing to 2 day turns?

thank you!

Deadlines changed to 2day/12hr/12hr

For future reference, it helps if you give the game number.

Ah sorry, please delete 104216

and please extend 103933 turn length to two hours.

Let me know if there is a better way to communicate this than the forums. I had difficulty working with the private message to admins.

Thank you again, love the site, just trying to figure it all out.

Using the forum as you are is fine and may indeed be the best way to get results since all the Mods/Admins will see it quickly and know if others are responding.

If you want to use the PM (Private Message) function, click "Mods" in the Groups box and then hit the "Add" button. That will send it to all the Mods.

Any other questions that can help you on the site, just ask.
