Fresh off the coding press is our new event wizard; a truly magical way to create events and find people to play them.
I knew when we built the original player finder that it’s reliance on notifications to find players wasn’t ideal; but as a first pass it was good enough to launch with.
Our new event wizard tries to correct some of the problems with the old system. It should, thanks to the reduced number of pop-overs, work better on mobile and it allows you to choose whether to let the system try match players for you, or to manually invite people we think would like to play the games you want to play.
We’ve revamped the calendar to make it easier to use:
We’ve changed the location selector so you can search for locations or create new locations:
You can choose which games to play more easily:
You can choose a name for your event, and add details for players who want to attend.
And crucially you can now invite players who are in your friends list, or who our algorithm thinks will enjoy the games you’re playing.
The players the system recommends are always nearby, so you don’t need to worry about inviting someone who is too distant to attend.
You can also leave the fill event checkbox ticked; then our system will automatically invite players to your event, just like the system used to do.
As always we want to hear what you think. Do you like the changes we’ve made to the system??
