For example, when changing game settings to very fast game title should change and adapt automatically to that
A lot of host don't update the title of their room when they change the settings (like the speed or the Friendly Robber). It would be nice to see all the settings before joining the game.
there should be an option instead of creating fast 4p then changing game title and game speed, 2 extra steps
OK, people create a "fast game" room then change the game to "very fast", which is fine. But if they haven't changed the default room name, then when they select "very fast" please automatically change the title text to "very fast". It wastes everyone's time to have to go into a room just to see it isn't a game that they want to play.
Or at a second line to the room description with text like "friendly", "11 VPs" (to win), "very fast/fast/regular", and other game options so we don't have to join a room to see if it's one we want to play.
Code the features: GameType(Tut,Rnd,Trn,Fun,Sea,K&C,Cst,SHP,2v2), # of players, BorH (Bankcards-Hidden), RorF (Robber-Friendly), D# (Discards), V# (Victory Points), G (Game speed [org-VF, red-F, green-N, black-S, blue-VS]), B (Bot speed [red-F, green-N, black-S]) HostNameDescription. Example: Fun6HRD12V14GB AlexInAuburn Testing 6 Player game, Rnd4BRD7V10GB PotatoRiot Just a standard game.
Private games should go to the bottom of the list and the others sorted by GameType, GameSpeed, VictoryPoints, HiddenRobber, ...
A grid like that could cover it : http://js-grid.com/demos/It has also filtering and sorting capabilities which would cover this suggestion : https://colonist.featureupvote.com/suggestions/84353/filter-lobby-by-game-type
The title could be useless if all the settings are in a filtering & sortable grid.More infos in this suggestion : https://colonist.featureupvote.com/suggestions/74774/put-all-the-game-settings-in-the-room-list
I don't agree H, if you filter on say fast and very fast games, knowing which games are which is still useful.
But for that you could refer to the column "Game speed" of the grid.
But that doesn't exist yet
Instead of "multiplayer game by X," it would be much better if each room dynamically changed the default name. For example, "Fast 4p Hidden Cards" or "Very Fast 8p Fun Map"
This will get even more important as expansions/options proliferate (unless you can sort/filter more in the lobby).
ex. Fast Game by TiaPusit
I think a lot of players just want to know the game speed and number of players before joining a game. And there's already a column for "Players"
This is actually a really good Idea! Just a tip too, you can change the game name by clicking the pencil
In lobby when looking at possible games to join show map type (fun,base,exp,mod) as well as game speed. Frequent players prefer high speed.
this makes it easier for people who are only interested in playing at a specific game speed to find rooms
Main reason I hop in and out of rooms is to check 'Game speed'. Would be nice to see it from Lobby.
