I have returned!

Postby Cryhavoc » 18 Feb 2019, 19:45

Hi
Cryhavoc here - returned to the site after an absence of almost a decade.
And what does it take to find another 6 players who can (a) join the game and then (b) confirm participation???? Been trying to get into a game for nearly 2 weeks and it just never starts.
Are there any reliable players still on this site?
Another couple of days and i'm out again. Please let me know if you are (a) reliable and (b) up for a game.
Happy stabbing. :)

Cryhavoc, it is hard at times to get a game going but when I really want to play, I look for games with 5 or 6 signed up already so I can push the game into start status. I'd be happy to join a game with you if you find one that meets your standards and you need just 1 more player (as long as it isn't a 12 hour turn game; I hate those as I love to communicate with other players).

cool - i'm the same - 24h minimum. And good advice re the 5 or 6 players - i'll do that. If memory serves i can do a private game and PM individuals an invite? May have to renew my subscription for that one....

I just can't understand why some-one would sign up but then not confirm.

I too would love to play a 2/1/1 regular game with reliable players.

As with you, unreliable players are the bane of my existence. One way to avoid them is to earn "Ambassador" status by completing 3 games without quitting any of them, and then join games that are marked "Ambassadors only". Alternatively, you can look into the Classicists group, which requires you to take a pledge to never quit a game, no matter how bleak your situation. Here's a link to the group's forum page, which explains things in excessively anal detail.

Sounds like we already have 3 great players (and me), and all of us like 2/1/1 games or longer and good communications, plus no quitters. Let's start a game!

Welcome back, Cryhavoc!

Don't give up on the site just yet. It's possible that a good many of the more serious players onsite here are focusing their time on the online championship which just started and is being hosted by another site this year. I've noticed that it's a bit slower than normal on PlayDip but there are definitely good games to be found (or started).

Count me in as interested and would be happy to play in a game. I'm reliable and occasionally even fun to play with/against.

I can vouch for the "reliable" part. :P

well thankyou for the welcome back - much appreciated.
I have just tried to create a game to get us all onto one but unable to. Either i'm not allowed to create 2 games or i'm not allowed to create a password protected game (not renewed my subscription yet - still debating...)

If one of you fine back-stabbers would do the honours - post the password here, then we can all jump on....
