How many games can non-premiums join?

Postby EnlightenedMonarch » 27 Feb 2018, 00:43

Hey, I tried to find this but all I could find was an old post from like 2012 and I think I vaguely remember someone saying it's changed since then. What is the maximum number of games that a non-premium account can have at one time?

Thanks,
EM

My understanding has always been 3. Ongoing games in which you're dead don't count. This is backed up by the post below:
rick.leeds wrote:Types of Account
There are two basic types of account - Premium and Non-Premium.
Premium
You can:
- Play up to 100 simultaneous games
Non-Premium
A non-Premium account allows you to:
- Play up to 3 Classic games simultaneously

Huh okay. I do remember it being three, but I thought someone recently had said it was five. I'm not sure.

It used to be 3, but now it is 5.

Thanks for answering Zosimus.

So to be clear, when we changed in 2016, the new rule is
- For new non-premium users, 3 games is the limit
- After they have been on site for a month, the limit changes to 5

Can you use prem credits to increase that?

Probably not a bad thing. Too many games is hard to manage.
