I know some of these topics may have already been discussed but im pretty frustrated with the game so i want to name a few points, which are bugging me so hard about the game, that i feel like i have to deinstall the game very soon.
- Why is this invite system so freaking annoying?
Whenever you play with a friend and u want to invite him, he sometimes doesnt get the invite or at least he always gets the invite after like 10-20 seconds. I mean it wouldnt be too bad but whenever sb dodges with alt+f4 you have to invite the person AGAIN. ANd lets face it, sometimes you have to try 4 times before you can start a game. So if you play for a while you end up wasting at least 10 minutes a day for inviting a friend. Thats so ■■■■■■■■. Why cant the lobby just stay and you just leave the lobby, if u dont want to play with ur friends anymore?
- People dodging the queue with alt+f4
I know this topic has discussed a lot so i dont want to write too much about it, but because its one of the mainreasons why this game is unplayable i have to mention it at least.
I Feel like the only solution is to give time penaltys(like you cant join the queue for 30 minutes), whenever sb dodges or you have to implement a system, where you will only play your favourite map. The queue time is atm too long anyway with these dodges so u may as well just queue up for ur favourite map from the beginning.
- The weak mentality from the players in teamgames.
This is by far the most annoying point in this game. There was a time, when people would still play when they only had 1 vil left as long as the team still had a chance. Unfortunately this is a dream nowadays. I dont know what happened in the last months. Ive used to queue up as solo a lot in 4vs4 teamgames. At the moment its just impossible. Whenever sb. has a bad game and he isnt even close to dead he just RESIGNS. He doesnt look at the score, he doesnt ask the team if they agree to resign…he just leaves. In my opinion they have to punish this behaviour and im asking myself why would you play teamgames at all with this attitude? If you only care about your own game, why dont u just play solo?
A small punishment could at least be, that sb cant queue up before the game ends.
Especially nomade maps have become unplayable imo, because sb always has a 2vs1 early on and then they just resign or in best case threaten to leave, if u dont help them immediately.
I think to compensate a bit, they should at least let the KI take over the player who resigned or sb should get all the ressources from the leavers. On higher elo this doesnt help too much(KI) but i still think its better than nothing.
- Is a reconnect feature impossible?
i havent find sth. about that. But this is another thing which would be huge. There are a lot of reasons why somebody drops out of the game(sadfully some are just coming from the game). It would be amazing, if you could just reconnect…but i could imagine that its not possible with this code.
- game stability
Of course most things will only work if the game really works. Its pretty pathetic that with every patch you see new modes, skins or sounds but the game stability is still so bad. Ive had a week ago a 2vs2 with a friend which went like 1:20 hour ingame. It was a real fun and exciting match and then it happened…my game just crashed without a reason. My mate was so frustrated about that, he didnt play for 3 days. I like this game a lot but sometimes i would like to slap me for still playing it. It feels like you waste more time than you actually play.
- Ban system?
This is not such a huge point. But i think it would be refreshing to have 1 or 2 bans for every team. Especially on nomade maps(african clearing indians, nomade persians…) you always see the same civs. I think it would be cool if u could ban 1 or 2 civs so you dont have to feel like u have a big disadvantage because u play random/dont pick the strongest civ.
