I love your games. But I am not really willing to play a game that requires me to log on every day. I am willing to play a game that requires me to play for 2 hours in one sitting. Here is what I propose to fix this problem for all of your games:
-A new automatic-starting Lobby, with the following features:
-2-5 minute deadline
-Harsh punishments for frequently failing to meet deadline (going afk), i.e. a 1-7 day lobby ban
-The game starts every hour even if it does not meet the maximum # of players; bots will replace the players if necessary (they already exist anyhow)
-If it is difficult to monetize this while still getting it to fill and keeping your other lobbies, the first 4 players slots could be free-to-play while the last 2 are premium-only, for example.
I am fairly sure this is the #1 problem with ironhelmet’s games. The steam reviews call Blight terrible because of it, the queues are far slower than any .io game or epicmafia.com, and I’ve never seen someone praise a system that requires you to log in once a day, nor a system that allows you to only play 5 minutes a day. I don’t understand why this isn’t your #1 priority; I think it would be worth even more than making an entire game! Lastly, I hope I am not disrespecting you, you’re the ones with ten years of good game design while I have done nothing to contribute.
