When you create a private game, we have put in place a 2 step process for the user:
In the past we used to automatically add people in the attendance list when an invitation was accepted by the Game Host. However, we noticed a big increase in the number of No-Shows at the games. Reason being that when players request an invitation they might be available, but then when the Host actually sends the invitation they may not be.
- A player must request an invitation
- If the request has been accepted by the Game Host, the user must confirm his/her attendance on the game page to secure a spot.
Therefore, all users must manually confirm their attendance in order to be added to the list.
