Quote from IsoSo Council, what's the verdict?
Quote from Guardman
I'm not sure if the "large game problem" can or needs to be fixed. The problem with large games is player preference. Players just prefer smaller games due to the fact large games are unwieldy and take a long time to finish. I'm not sure you can change that or want to change. I personally don't. To me this is just a natural progression of a userbase. I believe the correct response is to change large games rather than change the userbase.
Quote from DorkKnight »Well my current set up has 21 players and is being reviewed.
Quote from CyanI don't think that it is that difficult for Mods to make setups to accmomodate more than 20 players, but make the same setup able to be run with 18. If you open a setup and 24 people apply and you know how to accommodate them all, you should be allowed to do so. As long as your game could also run with 18 people.
Quote from AsianInvasionI like the overall idea, but I don't see a reason to enforce the artificially low game cap for third games and beyond. I would rather encourage host creativity and allow games up to 24 players (but no more), with the added stipulation that hosts must be prepared to swap or abandon their large games if they do not fire.
Quote from RobRoyIs there really enough of a difference between running a 16 person game and an 18 person game that we want to restrict people to this progression? I don't think the gradient is high enough to restrict that. Unless all you are trying to do is force more mid-sized games to be run...
Quote from IsoAnd beyond that?
Quote from atlseal3) All further requests to host follow the following rules (with exceptions granted by council request):
- First game you host must be a basic
- Second game you host is limited to 16 players
- Third game and beyond, your game is limited to 18 players
Quote from Iso@DRey: Are you calling me scum for flip-flopping my vote based on new evidence? Also, if you'll notice, I did mention that deadline exceptions could be made if game mechanics required it.
@atlseal: I think I might approve of game size limit based on past games run - though does that include FTQ submissions or just the hosting queue?
