The dungeon is now open!
The reason for this is that we have grown so much lately and our old system is no longer optimal for such a large user base.
The new system is nearly finished but still needs more work as well as testing. The first step though is introducing a completely new area of play which we are calling "the Dungeon".
What the Dungeon is and what it's for:
The dungeon is only for banned players.
Anyone who is time banned from DLG due to various offenses are forced to play their games somewhere else. This in reality is both bad for us since we lose those players as well as being bad for them since they don't really care about the ban enough not to try more actively to avoid it. Banning players is an old and outdated system employed by other platforms for many years but has never actually been a good system for anyone since this really only works when there are limited places to play your games.
By introducing this area banned players can play with other banned players so they still get to use our platform but completely without stat tracking or any other benefits. All players will be auto muted in Dungeon games as well as it only allowing MM games to avoid banned mates abusing it. This will also make games start much faster for the sake of activity. Eventually we might allow non banned players to play in the dungeon as well but only under certain circumstances but this will come later.
If you fill one or more of the below criteria you will be automatically excluded from playing public games and instead will only be able to play in our dungeon:
This is the same as before when it comes to bans. Banned players simply couldn't play at all.
Now though players without bans but with a high amount of active penalties will also be considered unworthy and cast off into the Dungeon to play their games instead of letting them mix with our law abiding citizens.
This is a brief explanation and mostly a heads up about it incoming.
Exact details and a further explanation will be added once we implement it so stay tuned!
