Create an option to include only players with karma settings of 100%, 90%, 80% and so forth
I love the idea of a % karma threshold. But I don't like the idea of a min. games played barrier. It could make it difficult for new players to find lobbies to play in. I know it would make it harder on fake/troll accounts, but I don't think it is worth it. A multiplayer game like this needs new players to stay around.
Good idea. Possibly also require a minimum number of games played, otherwise someone could have played 0 or 1 games and have 100% kharma which wouldn't be all that meaningful.
I like to play with 18+ karmas only. 1 out of 10 seems to me the only acceptable number of runs that I can tolerate.
Kicking players off is a pain because many will reconnect non-stop until you let them play.
I would love some thick boxes in the game settings for example:
- Registered players only (avoiding 0/0 Karma)
- 90%+ Karma (including 9/10 or 1/1)
- 18+ Karma (accounts with at least 18 of the last 20 games without running)
Or just have the ability to select a number 0-20 that you would like to see as the minimum karma requirement.
Yeah @connor but one could orgue then that 17/17 is better than 18/20
would love :)
yes please, with minimum games also (i.e. at least 90% completed, at least 5 games played)

For instance, let the room creator choose to only allow players with 17+ karma.

I'd like to be able to create a room and set a minimum Karma level for someone to be able to join. I know that many people only want to play with others they trust won't quit.
If this isn't possible, perhaps a pre-set option for "15+" and "18+" or something along those lines

Prevent less reliable players from joining some games in the lobby.
Some players quit very often or cheat/collude by playing as a team. This issue is being reported more lately.
1) Lobby games display what minimum karma is allowed (3-4 tiers?) - game host can set the limit
2) Players gain karma from playing (as before)
3) High karma players can see and enter games with other high karma players
4) Colluders and quitters are punished with karma loss. Essentially banning them from reliable player base.
Maybe even set a highest-karma limit for a period of time for these players - so no matter how much they play and don't quit, they can not get their karma up and ruin games for other players.
Rather than having to repeatedly kick somebody who has a 12 or whatever out of 20 karma, it would be fantastic as a host to being able to automatically block anything lower than a certain amount of karma points or a percentage from (re)entering....

I would like to see a game setting where you can put in preferences like HK and RUO. The game displayed in the lobby would be Base/Base/Normal/HK/RUO. This way its easier for people to know the host finds this important. In my experience games in which I play with people that have registered and have HK is usually more enjoyable
PS: Eventually I would like to see that the system recognizes that a player who has low karma (<80% finished) and/or is unregistered can't join games with these settings

Maybe add an option for karma when we create a game?For example, select a minimum of 90% (since not everyone has a karma /20)
hi!How can i stop the karma system?. Writing /disablekarma o something like that?Thaaanks!
Can we have a way to either restrict a game to a certain karma level or just be able to edit the title to allow people to know we are looking for high karma players only?

Thanks for considering this. I would love the "Minimum Karma points to join a game" feature to be developed.
Yes, I paid for the expansion and often set up rooms to play in, I will only play with 20/20 karma because I want to trust the person knows how to play and figure anyone who leaves 1/10 times probably leaves when they lose a city. It would save me the trouble kicking players to start if I could put a restriction on the room.
Could we add a karma restriction like 17+ for joining own games created? Would help massively because kicking out low karma people costs a lot of time.

Karma system really works by a limitation, or it just number.
Give game creator the ability set the criteria for players that can join the game. These games would be visible in the lobby only to the players that meet the criteria.
Number of Games Played: 1000+
