Hi

 

Im new here and can't be bothered to try and find where this will have been asked before, sorry! :-)

 

But the question as you can predict is, when are you going to introduce barrage, and when can the 10 piece game have a ranking option?

 

Thanks!

iron_maiden, I'm not privy to the site's future plans, of course, but there's no barrage in the web version, as you are aware, nor the new app version. There's also a combination of the records for both the regular and quick games as you have observed in the web and, I think also, the new app version as well, though I should state I should probably verify that last statement to be sure.

You'll notice also that the web version calls the current 10 piece game the Quick Arena while the new app calls them Quick Battles, though they are virtually equivalent, save for the annoying feature that the Quick Battles don't allow one to choose his setup. The computer just kind of randomly gives you one.

The Quick Battle ranking is definitely on our list, but we do not know when we will release this.

Barrage sounds like a nice thing to have as well, but it is something we have not discussed. Thanks for the tip though!

Another vote for Barrage!  It's an extremely popular variation and I have no doubt it would also be popular here. 

 

And please try to have the Quick Arena 10 piece games ranked!  That would be a sweet addition to all of us that play it!  Any idea when that might be implemented?

Barrage is 20 times as interesting as the 20p game

I prefer the 10-piece game, but that's a question of personal taste.

I've never tried barrage but it seems interesting considering it's played on the normal 10 by 10 board.

I've played barrage on Gravon. I think I like 10p a bit better, but they're about the same.

I like the 8 pieces but that's just because I'm former Champion in it ;). It started my roll to become Dutch and European Champ :). We're talking WAY ancient history here. Former millennium. At this time, I would be lucky to beat any Bronze.

I'll play you anytime, Lonello! Hopefully, win too! (10 piece, of course.)

Thanks for the support guys. It would definitely be great to have options to play Classic, 10pc, and Barrage.  And separate rankings for each would also be awesome.  That way we could distinguish great players among the different variations.  I personally know a lot of users here who love Barrage and would like to see a ranking system implemented for it.

 

Any idea if and when this might be implemented?

Guys who want to play barrage, why not head over to Gravon and register there? you can play all 3 forms of the game there (10p is called 'duell')

 

The big difference is obviously you only get 1 bomb, so the flag cannot be bombed into a corner. It means there is more skill in getting your setup right, but the element of luck does also increase slightly. That said, on gravon you can see all the top barrage players are also very good regular players so there can't be too much luck involved.

We can hope, but as I say, get over to Gravon if you want to play it. It's not like you have to rely only on this site for certain games...
