Bring Back Random Player Feature Please!!

Stevesmaill
suggested this on December 18, 2012, 09:30

PLEASE bring back the random player feature.. the best match feature is so annoying as you can only match a few players. If people dont play back against you having the random player feature was great!! Could delete a game and find a new one instantly! The best match feature has really put songpop back a long way. Also the best match matches you with people in the same area as you.. it was fun with the random match playing against players from all over the world. Along with that there i think songpop should think about allowing players to have access to any playlist that they have bought/earnt with coins.. having only a few to choose from defeats the purpose of trying so hard to get new playlists. After making the effort to gain a new playlist either from buying it or gaining enough coins to buy it i think they should be available to play whenever the player wants.. These two issues i think will cause people to lose interest in songpop quickly. its a shame when people come up with great apps like Songpop but then fiddle with them too much when they were awsome in the first place.. the random feature should definately be put back in the game even if you kept the best match as well. But i know that random player feature kept me coming back to play because i knew i would always be able to have someone to play against. Please consider this seriously as myself and friends and im sure many in the Songpop community miss this feature and wont stick around of it doesnt come back.. Thanks Steve.

Why, with so many people requesting random player, can this not be brought back? It seems like this forum is just here to vent our frustration but nothing is done about it.

So I guess that I have not been n here in a while. Without random players, I have no one to play. I guess it is not coming back since it has been over 2 rs since this happened. Yeah, App owners suck. going to try to find something better... oh it will not be hard, i just have to find an app where there is an opponent to play... so wrong.

Without random player your game sucks I used to play all the time, not everyone have money to become a V. I. P for cheap little time waster bring it back quit being greedy or I'm not playing and stop sending me email if you don't bring this back. I even defeated so many people so I could play and that did not work either. If movie pop do the same thing I won't play that either.

Security theater is a critical term for deployment of measures primarily aimed at raising subjective security without a genuine or commensurate concern for the effects of that measure on objective security.

In some musical genres, such as jazz and blues, even more freedom is given to the performer to engage in improvisation on a basic melodic, harmonic, or rhythmic framework.

And so, for those who have less DTI, financial institutions can sanction the application because it is possible to make monthly installments promptly.

Because you really are a university student, the part-time career are going to be considered simply by most of these lending organizations.

Well..i know no one would like to do it this way because it's time consuming..but sometimes it's best to take actions into our hands..and what I mean by that is start our own Songpop Community..share our usernames etc..then share our username..whoever we connect with searches our username..and bingo..we are playing with "random" people or people with similar interests!..like I said it may be time consuming but at least we wont be playing people over and over who we already defeated!

I don't understand why the random option has been taken away, the current option is less enjoyable. I like not knowing who i'll be playing against, and it's interesting playing with people from all over the world who may not match my tastes. I don't play half as much now because it's just the same few people with the same scores as me. Ideally it would be perfect with both options; playing with people that have similar scored/tastes and also randoms that might not.

This is a SP Marketing Mistake. Before taking away our RANDOM PLAYER FEATURE, The BEST MATCH FEATURE should have been added as a test trial basis only & the SP Players should have been givenjjjjjeirinput before all of these cges were made.  What we once enjoyed for free is now something SP feels we need to pay for. Now, the Premium amount has increased, we no longer have the option to even choose another player without it taking Power Ups from us.  Not to mention, all of the problems being experienced by not even being able to access. SP, screen going black & SP not responding. Having to send numerous emails for support to fix is aggrivating to say the least.  NOTE: THE RESPONCE I RECEIVED FROM SP a month ago ref. Random Player was short & to the point, their decision, they believe ut's

Hi I'm posting this on here as its sort of connected! I loved the randoms and as a result have a core of players who have become like friends and missed me when I went on holiday! we have chats as well as great competition between us! Is there a way for me to find these random players on FB? One of the randoms has vanished and we thought we'd see if we could find him on FB but its hard as the locations arent always correct (the one annoying thing I can thing of about SongPop!) So yes please bring back the randoms as I've found good buddys through it but can you make finding these peeps on FB easier! Thank you!

Yeah I don't get what the designers of this app are doing. I pay for premium and what I get is longer song clips? That's counter productive to the goal of the game. Everything you get on premium is a waste of money. I should be able to play way more games then they limit me too. Best match is stupid. Even the "Now Playing" are friends who have the app but aren't really playing necessarily. I want to do Random Game and play people who are actually engaging the game. This limits me to like 2 best matches every 20 minutes? I don't want to play 6 people every hour. I don't sit and play this game that long. Like these adjustments they make just kill what was a good idea. Just quit screwing it up. I don't care about smack talk. All they needed to adjust really from the original was tweak scoring a bit and iron out bugs. Instead they screw around and add too much or take away the wrong things.

Totally agree. Are we ever gonna have the random player feature back? I stopped playing songpop because of this. It took the fun out of it. You're limited to players around your area and most of them don't even play. This best match feature has no sense. Not only does it force you to play with people from your region but you must also spend some power ups each time you wanna create a new game which is inevitable as you must delete games almost every day to be able to play since no one is active.  It's a really silly feature that ruined the game. I used to love it! >.<

Hi guys well the Songpop Username Database is coming along nicely, we now have over 200 members in the list and its growing all the time

So if you are a regular player of Songpop that is looking for some international competition you might wish to take a look at the list which can be found here 

http://www.quizmasters.biz/songpop/menu.html

We know the new feature to enable players to play other peoples opponents is a nice addition and can assist in people finding international opponents but it now takes a whopping 5 power ups every time you use it and new users who have just started playing the game will find it tough to find song popppers with foreign opponents in their list as they are restricted to finding people within their own countries so the database still has a more than valid reason for its existence, Cheers happy song popping.

I like it too when you select random players to play against I must admit all my players on Songpop are random people who I don't know but some of the them have been playing against me since I started playing Songpop. Although I enjoy chatting to my challengers on the new chat feature I do feel a little uncomfortable about it as you can't see them or hear them sometimes people tend to get a bit to personal and are asking you questions like ie Can I add you on Facebook

Having to wait for another player has been extremely aggravating and half of them don't end up playing back because they have gotten rid of the app etc.. Random match was a lot better because the person playing would always play back right away and we could continue using the app when we wanted to

Good points by Laura Larkin, especially in pointing out that the 'Songpop marriage' that Songpop are boasting about in the announcements here came about because of this very feature that's now been removed from the game.

Also, thank you to Jess for the official response from Songpop.

  • The new update has improved the situation by allowing people to find new challengers from amongst their existing challengers.
  • I'm dubious as to how useful the musical compatibility score actually is for all players, but the 'Last Online' stat is definitely useful as an indicator of how active your opponents are (why can't it also be shown on the 'Best Match' dialog?)
  • Another issue that is still being raised, and which I think is valid, is that Best Match as opposed to Random Player limits you to players in your geographical location. This is not ideal for all types of players when you consider that the types of societies we live in.
  • Further to that point; the conflict between Best Match and Random Player very much comes down to the fact that people play in different modes. Some players prioritise immediacy of response and others are happy to play once or a few times a day. Songpop need to look at how they cater to both demographics.
  • In response to the situation, there are communities springing up everywhere for the dedicated; Facebook groups, username databases and so on. People who continue to play Songpop have decided to do so on their terms with players who they choose, not who 'Best Match' is picking for them.
  • On the issue of money. I think we're in this situation because Songpop have failed to recognise that perception is reality in a public relations sense and for the players of the game. Regardless of what the underlying intention is, it's how changes are interpreted by the fans that matters and as I've pointed out in a comment on the placement of certain buttons in the game;  if it looks like it's designed to generate money, especially at the expense of gameplay, then of course people will be unhappy.
  • On that note, Songpop / Freshplanet need to look at the bigger picture of how it handles PR. Having Jess sitting here managing this board by herself (is that the case?) is hardly the best way to represent a game that millions are playing. The product managers, designers and developers of this game should live and breath it as much as the fans. We don't need them to reply to every single complaint but it should be apparent that there is a dialogue that is two-way. A lot of the anger I see here reflects the perception that the direction of the game is not taking into account the needs and opinions of the people who have made it such a huge success.
Thanks for the response.

I totally agree with getting the Random back. I always liked playing instantly with someone. Now I have to wait all the time. I liked the fact that while I was randomly finding someone, someone was asking me to play randomly. It was so much fun. I am getting bored. I hope they change it back soon!

What is common here ? It's really working the "Best" match feature ?

I have to agree with everyone here, this Best Match is terrible. Most of the people on my list aren't playing. And frankly, I don't want to only play people who live in my state... It's a big world out there, SongPop. But having dealt with the "support" people here for the last few months, I know nothing will change.

The thing I really hate about the Best Match is I love the Ska Punk playlist, and none of my best matches have that playlist. Before I read this I wasted 25 powerups trying to randomly bring up a playlist that I now know was never going to come up... I want my powerups and random back.

Taking away random players really amplified the problem because whoever they pick as your best match could be someone like me who hasn't played in over two months. Now people are waiting for me to respond to their challenges and spending powerups to move on to the next best match. They're only making it worse by stubbornly not bringing back random player and driving us away.

John Rahn, I did love and wish they would bring it back random play , I was just trying to give others another way to play others without paying. I play people from all over and play all the time. Are there people who play once or twice and quit, yes. That happened with random play more than now because I can see more info now.

R (I) P was just fun! Players always ready to play and the not knowing who you might get was exciting! I have plenty of players now and all the stats and compatibility is all good but the thrill of random player is unmatched by any Best Match or seeking our players' players! But good we can do that and not have to use coins to shuffle! I'm satisfied but still miss that instant excitement of a random player!

Faith I'm glad you're happy with the method you're using but its not the same thing.  With Random Play you would get someone who would play you back relatively fast and also get a few random challenges back in return from people who were also generally playing at the same time you were and as you pointed out it was quicker and less cumbersome.

Ok I am confused. I found that if you click on the profile of people you are playing, you can then select from people they are playing. It cost nothing. That's what I have been doing since they changed RANDOM PLAY with the update. It takes a little longer but no big deal. When you click on those players you can see their interest, what they are good at and just challenge them. I don't think song pop even realized that you can do that!

I wouldn't have a problem with legal action and don't see anything funny about it.  This is classic bait-and-switch.  People that bought/subscribed before the change was made were sold the ability to play random games without restriction up to 80 games.  Then once they had our money they yank away that function and it now costs you something to find players and made it impossible to play 80 games, at least for me and obviously many others.  They profit from less server usage, people giving up, etc.  It may seem like an insignificant cash loss on an individual base but multiply that by the thousands that paid and you can see how this company has unjustly profited.  It's deceptive, evil, and illegal and this company should be punished.

Donna, think about it. people paid for a year's subscription of VIP so that they can have unlimited games. If songpop makes it where they can't have unlimited games and they have taken people's money for a time period such as that, what do you think would happen? 

 

get enough people in that boat, and i bet something would happen.

I haven't read all of the posts so this may have been covered....but I JUST realized when I shuffle the match or request a new one, its taking my coins!!!!! I don't think it even warns or says "spend a coin" or anything!!!

I think for me, the new update cleared this up. unlimited players as I understand. I can look at friends' opponents and find people based on similarity so if I want to play someone a bit different, just select a lower compatibility. I have added my french speaking friends' friends so that I don't have to annoy everyone and their mother who doesn't speak english. I am adding people who have a larger number of opponents (& not like 6), but I sent like 30 new challenges yday and everyone has responded.... 

The limits on new challenges was a lawsuit waiting to happen, so it is nice it's been addressed where you can get that many challenges if you want.

I think I have had it with SongPop.  You keep matching me with people that either won't play, just play long enough to get ahead and then quit, or people who score over 20,000 every game. I use to win the majority of my games now I'm lucky if I win 5 a week.  This sucks...

Ok with the new update, you can click on an opponent and see who they are playing. Click on their opponent and you can challenge them without using your power ups.

Songpop, do you even read this? I've to get through to any potential sponsors and advertisers to see if they can get you to pull your heads out of your posterior caverns and will continue to do so.

I've now tried using best match since it started to make it work and my experience hasn't improved.

- response rate from invitees is much lower than from random (and i've used my 3 every day to give it a good try)

- I've not had a single challenge from a new other player since it started. with random i was getting one or two new challenges every day

- where I do get a response, the responders are identikit, far less variety.  If they find the experience the same then it explains why the games fizzle out very quickly

- looking through my games the long running are all from before best match started

In all a disappointing flop heavily restricting the variety and range of gaming available.

I love SongPop but I miss the random player. I don't like best match because sometimes it's nice to fine people with different musical interests not the ones that are exactly the same as yours. With random player I could always find someone to play with but with best match I only have 3 options.

The only reason I want to conserve my powerups is we are stuck with categories I regret buying anyway.

Obviously they're too thick-headed to get it. This has been going on for two months now and all there is complaints and withdrawals from players. Must be run by the NFL we see how the rent-a-ref thing went this year. It wasn't until people threatened to stop tuning in for games that they finally got it. Once we stop they either go belly-up or comply with our demands. My email address hasn't changed for whenever they want to notify me they bring back random choice and don't start charging powerups for that either. Still waiting for a copycat version or the game if anyone creates one, count me in.
