I see what you are saying but I just think it drags on too slowly.

More time to enjoy the current game and push for higher scores! 

 

Or more time to be frustrated with the current game if it's Lock N' Chase... 😁

Lol. Honestly I think one full week with one game is enough time for either scenario. 😉

True, but not everyone can start immediately in the first few days.  If I recall from the other thread, the main reason for the 2 weeks was to allow enough time for everyone to get in an attempt.  Silly life getting in the way of gaming time and such.  🙂

By the way, in the future I would vote for each game to be 1 week only instead of 2 weeks to keep the season moving much quicker.  It feels too slow to me to basically be playing only 2 games per month. So 1 game, 1 week would be 4 games per month. Much better in my opinion. 

Jacob what are your thoughts on that?

Hi, I went with 2 weeks, as most gamers here say they need time to play, apart from their job, families etc.

 

I do have my eye on the season though and a few ideas later.

The key to your comment is "the first few days."  Even after the first few days of an entire week, there are still 4-5 days left in the week to play, including a whole weekend.  Not to sound too blunt, but I think if you can't find the time to play JUST ONE game in a whole week, then that's just too bad.  Move on to the next one.  I would rather keep the season moving than dragging on with only 2 games per month.

I know you went with 2 weeks, but my point is that it seems to drag on too long...in essence only playing 2 games per month.  Think about that...just 2 games in an entire month???  I think we can do more than that and speed it up a bit.

How about a compromise.  A new game every week but allow two weeks for each game.

That would be the same as last season, so I am ok with that. Makes it move quicker and get more games in.

Great score!

I have no idea how you get a score like that.

The controls kill me,the maze is claustrophobic in its size and it's hard to avoid the bad guys.

I lock myself in too much.

Oh yeah,and if we go back to the format of last season that would be great!

With this game you have to make your moves well before you get to intersections, if you wait you'll miss turns.  I thought I had patterns memorised as a kid; can't remember now.  Once you get to level 10/heart the cops move way faster than you.  A near perfect game up to that point and you might end up with 130k points.  On twin galaxies they have scores over 200k.  Not sure how they did that.

That's what I meant to ask,if there was anything close to a pattern. 

The cops outsmart my little leprechaun too many times,then I feel dumb for falling for it and get frustrated!😄

Okay, good as I'm going to do, I'm afraid. Really trying to enjoy this game and just really not. 🙂

It can be pretty frustrating right?

Yeppers!  I totally admire the game for being "not-PacMan" but by the same token, I think I'm having trouble separating deeply-ingrained PacMan instincts from this game.  Cops reversing direction mid-path or not following you is just *wrong* on some hind-brain level for me.  🙂

Two weeks only seems long when you dont enjoy the game plus some people have a busy schedule .I gives everyone a chance to succeed in games also you need two weeks to learn a game if you never had played. I still and always vote for two weeks a game and one game in those two weeks. It makes the playing field even that way.

Totally agree! I feel the same way and it messes with my brain as well. The cops seem to be hard to escape sometimes and it’s maddening!  There’s probably some secret or memorization of patterns that will enable someone to reach that super high score, but I just have zero interest in getting that serious LOL.

I think we could just go back to the way it was last season, that way we have a new game every week but still a two week time frame for each game.  Season wouldn’t drag on then.

I see what your saying and why but I still think it’s better two week intervals.  
But it’s up to everyone participating and the decision really Upton Jacob.
