Bug? Can't find my table waiting to open to players?

Post by Boland » 08 August 2019, 08:55

I've just joined BGA, and I've joined two turn based games which is great.

However, it says I cannot join another turn-based game as "You have 2 games in progress and 1 tables waiting to be open to players"

At my player overview it says:

Boland - Playing now at: 3 turn-based games

But when I click that link, I only see the 2 games in progress? Where can I see the 3rd game? I've looked everywhere.

After you click Play Now, there are 3 options at the top,the last 2 are 'Turn-Based' and 'Games in Progress'. I believe it's the 'Turn-based' list you are looking for.

...but there is no limit to the number of turn-based you can join, only a limit to the number of open tables of the same game you can have at the same time. (Unless there is a restriction to brand new players that I'm unaware of).


Saying all of that I can see your profile and indeed it says 3 tables with only 2 in the list, so 1 has gone missing :?:
In the long run though open tables do time-out so eventually it should disappear.

I'm pretty sure that there is a limit related to how many turnbased games you already played.
So when you haven't played much here you can't play a lot of them yet but it wil increase.
How more you finish (without time/leave penalties); how more you can play.
I think it was implemented because it happened often that some new players joined
a lot of turnbased games and went overtime or quit them.

Yeah I cannot join another table, because it says I've already joined 3 tables. A bit annoying because effectively I've only joined 2. So it seems like a bug?

Go here and scroll down. You may be able to see a table you are at, which hasn't started.

Yeah at the top there was a game I apparently had started, but not opened for playing. That was a tough find! Thanks!
