On the other hand, it might be interesting if you included the "game type" as an optionality...you'd not know if the game was going to be doubles, quads (both with random teammates) or terminator...that could be VERY interesting.


yah would be interesting, but what happens if you make an 8 players game with random settings and it`s triples, how is that going to work?


Ah, good question! I guess that would have to be dependent on the number of players. For instance, a six-player game could have doubles, triples, assassin, terminator or standard but a five-player game could only have assassin, terminator or standard.


i guess that could be an interesting thing that can have the random settings, but it will have to have some rules like:

2 players: Game Type: standard
3 players:Game type:Standard, Terminator, Assasin
4 players: Game Type:Standard, Terminator,Assasin, Doubles
5 players: Game Type: Standard, Terminator, Assasin
6 platers Game Type: Standard, Terminator, Assasin, Doubles, Triples
7 players: Game Type: Standard, Terminator, Assasin
8 players: Game Type: Standard, Terminator, Assasin, Doubles, Quadruples

But then,the number of players, the Map and the Round lenght i think that they can`t be changed.


It would simply be that, in the order of which random thing is selected first, the "number of players" would have to be selected before the game type could be selected. That removes the conundrum.

I don't think this is going to happen, if only for the very simple reason that either all settings are in or there wont be a medal. comparable to getting hive on random

There`s no all the settings because it can`t be, i can`t open an 8 players game an the random system says 2 then 6 players will leave, also the round lenght : the no-premium people can`t have speed games so that wouln`t be possible, and the map , well that already exists and even has a medal( Random Map Achievement). But then all it`s fine.

Also why wouldn`t be a medal :?:

or i didn`t understand that part

I agree with Sebstar. I don't think I am in favor of this much. A little too wacky for me. I do love medals though.

If you`re not agree with the idea you just don`t go saying this idea is bad for me or too wacky for me, you said why, because with that the people know what`s bad in the idea and which part is good.
Anyway, I also love medals :D

What I love:
    medals

    House M.D.
What I don't love:
    The various problems that this presents.
    I don't think there should be a different medals for each random.
    I don't think that there are enough options for Random to be warranted.

I love that the folks who have replied have pointed out significant problems with the random settings I didn't really care for in the first place. I do like the random being an option for spoils, forts, fog, initial troops, play order and maybe even game type (S,T, or A--not teams). I would support that definitely. Don't really care if you do round length, or round limits or # of players.

See, I don't care about medals at all. But I like this suggestion (with of course MY additions to it). It seems like it would be a lot of fun.

To clarify, I would not mind playing random settings. I just think that the setup would be too wacky; too difficult.

Has anything happened with this? I would like to see this implimented for play order, deployment, spoils, fog, reinforcements. I think it could help people with settings they avoid, without just overlooking them in game finder.

I agree with TheMissionary. Perhaps make the medal achievable if the player selects 4 of the 5 new settings to be random so that they can choose at least one to be normal. A lot of players won't want to play freestyle in a 1v1 game (as the 2nd player generally always goes first) so they could skip that option.

Random settings

Postby Chewie1 on Sun Apr 28, 2013 11:13 am

After the S*** storm that followed the CCup4 potential draw and seedings etc....

Random was/has been discussed more and more.

What about random settings.

When you select a random (map) game be it singles or team games settings still have to be selected.

So could there be a random settings box to be selected.

Separate boxes could be available for speed games.

But otherwise you could get a genuine random game.

Its easy to farm your random medal with esc,chained sunny, but add the random settings dimension, some real challenging games could be created then.

Surely it can't be hard to implement as random maps can be selected?
