The only way this works is if there is a central place to schedule games. The problem isn't necessarily people not being on, it's not scheduling games in advance. None of us can sit there on the couch all day waiting to see if someone comes on, then hoping they even respond to you. There needs to be a way to easily say, "Hey ______, I can be on ____day and _____day at ____ time." The announcements section isn't practical, and using XBOX messenger is a pain and unreliable.

Furthermore, there needs to be a way for everyone, especially the commish, to see if there was a response to that. That way, if someone isn't making an effort to schedule games, they get the boot. As it is now, we have no way of knowing who is trying and who is not. This is why I suggested a seperate part of the forum for us to schedule individual games.

Trust me, I ran a PC league from 2001-2007, and I've seen all the issues with this. Without a system like this, things will disintegrate quickly and people will lose interest. I've already lost a lot of interest after waiting 2 weeks and still not seeing 2 of my opponents on at all. Game cycles should be 1 week long, max.

Which team are you? I should be available around 10pm cst.

LITT, yes, LGP should be the method, but using one thread for all scheduling is not practical.

I've made a google doc that shows the results of all scheduled games starting with tick 3.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... U9TcWhKenc

This doesn't solve the problem of us being able to schedule games more easily. However, this kind of visibility will hopefully cause people to play more games. At the very least, we'll know at the end of the tick who isn't getting their games played.

I'll update this manually once each night, so don't expect it to be real time or anything.

I used the start date of the game on the real life schedule, since thats what the game gives us (rather than the date/time the game was actually played, which doesn't seem to be visible anywhere).

No worries at all Senka, just letting it be known that I need a game, whenever we can get it, we get it.
