I've finally ended up getting the new LFG system I described in a blog entry some time ago into a working state.

Because of the inherently distributed nature of the system, I need help from you guys to test it.

In order to give it a try, you need to do the following:

1. Go to https://fumbbl.com/p/lfg2
2. Hold your SHIFT key and click the reload button on your browser. This is an important step to ensure you have the latest version of the page.
3. Find a match! The system itself should be fairly self-explanatory.
4. Post bug reports to this thread. Remember to include what browser and OS you are using (including versions) and if possible ways to reproduce the problem.

Note that you are expected to play the games you accept and start, so don't start games you don't intend to play.

Thank you for your help!

PS: I've written a quick draft of a help page for the Gamefinder which should explain how it works.

Looks great.

Maybe a link on the current game finder for the beta for those who don't wander into the forums?

and may be a big announcement at the top that the LFG2 page is in beta and should be treated as such, instead of chewing out the staff when things don't work properly?....

because that never happens with the FFB client Wink

with that being said....the page looks great christer Smile

Idea the Ability to take teams off the list you dont want to play against? would get rid of some clutter?

Click the red decline button and the matchup will disappear for a certain amount of time (currently 2 minutes).

I think that might need to be changed, I did that and the issue is if you have 3-4 teams on there, they start reloading before you make it through your list and it makes it tough to look at teams and get rid of ones you dont want to play. Just my Two Cents so far

Looks neat - i checked 3 matches, then one check disappeared after a few minutes - I am guessing that is a feature not a bug.

Looks neat. I like being able to scale the text. Also i did one team, then hit change teams and it remembered what i had done initially - looks good. Is it actually working and can launch games?

Agreed, it certainly looks pretty. And it looks like getting a game will be quicker/easier. So all good. But, offering (hopefully) constructive criticism, the summary that appears in the yellow box after clicking the 'i' button seems less useful than actually seeing the positionals a team has, which stats, who has them, i.e. all the stuff on the team's page. And it appears that if you want to see the team page, you need to copy the coach's name, paste it into search, find them, then find and click through to the team's page. So I guess it's good for [B] style not-really-bothered-what-I'm-playing-against matches. Not so much for [R] or [L]. Or am I just revealing my latent cherrypicker side by saying that? And no, it's not a bug, and I do realise this is just a beta so maybe that's already set to change. Just thought I'd mention it...

I know it's bugs requested, not feedback, but alas.. Looks great! I'd love to see the coach's name and team name appear as links so I can check them out easily in more detail. 1 claw, 2 mighty blow and 3 block skills spread over 3 or 4 players is pretty different team from 1 CLAWPOMB player plus support.
