p.s.: do you guys understand what i mean ?


yes i understand the one problem is it becomes difficult for people joining games to know what your random maps are and then see if they want to join that set of random maps instead of another game with a different set of random maps...see what i mean?

What if, when this was selected, it had to choose from common maps between the players in the game?

What if the players had no common "my random" maps?

Then it could either be a map that is on neither list or a default map. Classic, for example.

A solution could be to make an Excel file and make a random choise of the maps you like each time you make a game.
Of course opponents can see which map they play before they join this way.

But it is probably to difficult to code to let each player make there own set of random maps.

Why not post a list of of your maps in callouts and set up private games inviting someone to each based on your own random draw. As the OP is premium this would be possible.

Or what if Random map actually returned 5 maps for all players to vote on (within 24 hours). If there was a tie, then it would be randomly decided between those two. Would make for an interesting twist. You could quick map rank your opponents to find their weakest map. Also would take some team work to ensure you all vote on the same map.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

I would like to have categories like "small maps" "medium sized maps" "big maps"
or "standard maps" "non standard maps" for random maps

You could make the My Random option randomly select a map at create time, rather than game start time. That way it is random for the game creator, but you eliminate the confusion for other people joining.

Alternatively, you could also make the My Random maps be a preference rather than a hard and fast rule. The random selection process would first compile a list of My Random maps that are common among all players, and if it doesn't find one, then it defaults back to the regular random map creation.

Restrictive random map

Postby waauw on Sat Jun 22, 2013 2:07 pm

Concise description: Make it so you can set maps to random but restrict the number of maps. So it randomly picks a map from a list of maps you yourself have chosen.

Specifics/Details:
  • Go to start a game and choose "random map". This opens a list and you select which maps are allowed in this random map list.
  • When you go to game finder and find a map with "random", you can click on a link and it displays all the maps in the random list.
  • The random map medal would have to be altered a bit, so you can only earn it when the whole list is selected.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • It's fun not knowing what map you're going to get, but there are some maps you really hate and don't want to play. You could avoid them this way.
  • Tournament organizers can make random map tournaments with a more restrictive list. For example organize a tournament with random maps small maps only.

Not so random maps

Postby Vid_FISO on Mon Nov 04, 2013 5:34 am

Rather than just have one all encompassing Random map choice I'd like to have the option of choosing a random map from set categories.

e.g.
Random (small) - maps with less than 25(?) terits
Random (large) - maps with more than 80(?) terits
Random (medium) - maps that fall between (small) and (large)
Random (Conquest) - Conquest maps
Random (standard) - classic type maps with regional/ continental bonuses
Random (complex) - the weird and the wonderful
Random (Beta) - for current beta maps
possibly a couple more obvious categories that don't spring to mind right now

Having such options would enable themed tourneys, aid clans and tourneys to avoid unsuitable/ unwanted maps for the competition (especially in tie-breaks), give those that are looking for pick up games (whether it be as individuals or teams) the choice of playing on the type of map they're happy with.

I suggested this way back when random map first came out. I think there should also be an option for Random (All) - but I'm definitely a huge fan of smaller categories.

Bollocks.
