Real-time game? Partie temps réel ?

Real-time game? Partie temps réel ?

Message par Katamari_Naneke » 19 Déc 2018 12:16

I've never played this one. I read the rules, and I got excited, so I started a couple of games. Now... I wait. And unfortunately, a lot of waiting is unavoidable. Would some people like a game in real-time? Maybe this Friday, December 21, starting at 0200 (02:00AM) Greenwich Mean Time?

Je n'ai pas joué cette jeu. J'ai lit les regles, et j'ai devenu enthusiaste, donc j'ai commencé deux jeux. Maintenant... J'attends. Et malheuresement, beaucoup d'attendre est inévitable. Est-ce que quelques de vous voulez une partie en temps réel? Peut-être cette Vendredi, Decembre 21, commencer à 0200 (heure de Greenwich)?

Sorry, I don't speak German. Désolé, je ne parle pas Allemande. Et je probablement parle mal français, aussi. ;)

In french we say "temps-réel" for "real-time" ;) I fixed your topic title

This website is clearly made for turn-by-turn play.

You can play live if you agree, and if you are both premium you will have automatic page reload when it's your turn.
That could work well for 2 players, the more players the more chance somebody betray the agreement.

And staying in front of your computer when you're not sure when it will be your turn, reloading the page, is not very fun.

you also can create games with 1/2 day delay between each turn, but BàJ is not a real time web site.
But after some (long) games, I think you will find some quick player that you can invite :)

YES ! :D
But I live in europe, so I don't know if it'll be possible to find a moment when we are both able to play. At 2 AM GMT I sleep. Next days, I can decide when I work, so I'm able to play between 7 AM GMT and 10:30 PM. (If it's not possible otherwise, I can start at 6 AM, or finish at 0:30 AM.)
And if we could find a third player, it could be great.

I hadn't considered the fact that people would need premium accounts (or an unreasonable amount of commitment). Sorry if this is kind of exclusive, but I don't see a way around that. I know people might betray the agreement, but I'm an optimist.

I can't see a way to invite specific people to a game, except as guests. Am I overlooking something? I was planning to just co-ordinate with people, ideally have some other real-time chat open to facilitate this as we put the game together. (Maybe discord? idk, there's lots of options.)

I could do 8AM GMT. We'd hopefully finish within 2 & a half hours. Would that suit you too, Hipopopotamus?

I don't think it's unreasonable. I played several live (or almost live) games here, and regularly reloading (while doing other things at the same time if turns are slow) to see if it's your turn is not a big problem, even if it is surely not as convenient as an automatic reload. (edited because reloading with the BAJ button is faster than reloading with F5, it doesn't reload the whole page, at least not always).
But I would gladly go premium if I could often play live games of alchemists, castles of burgundy or dungeon lords. Actually, the only reason why I didn't go premium and stopped playing here is that I didn't manage to find enough people for live or almost live games.
