Live game players allowed to rejoin

Postby super_dipsy » 15 Apr 2015, 17:00

As part of the looking at improving Live Games, players that are kicked out because they did not confirm in time will be allowed to rejoin and try again, no matter what the game type. It can sometimes be easy to get distracted and miss the confirm. If it is an honest error, it may be the other players are prepared to give it another try, which this allows players to do.

Also, for those that did not notice, although shorthanded (not the new CD countries but the old shorthanded) games are Friends game now, they do not require a password and therefore can be listed in the Home Page Live slot.

Oh. Wasn't totally sure it would work, Live games work a bit funny. Having a game number would have helped, but let me see what I can see.

Well, the change DID work. So I am not sure why you could not rejoin. Are you sure there was still a slot open when you tried? There was certainly nothing to stop you rejoining. What happened when you tried? You could still see the game on the Home Page, right? So when you clicked Join, what happened?
