Yes, while this is true, I know i would personally like to play a game where you don't know what the teams are. Sure, a lot of high ranks probably won't like this, but i bet a ton of low ranks would. It would give you the ability to realize, Hey, i really like these/this guy(s) (or girl), they/he/she plays well and communicate well, perhaps this person would like to play some normal team games with me.


It would give the ability for people to find new partners, which I am always up for.

Well, if it was an option you wouldn't HAVE to play the random team games if you don't want to. It would just be another way to setup the game for people who don't play on established teams. you could even go so far as to fog out the names of the players who have already joined the match, endless possibilities. The teams who play with an established team will still have a place to play, they just might not end up with so many "David vs Goliath" types of matches.

I am only speaking for myself of course, but I really enjoy team games, except so many times I join a team match and end up with 2-3 partners who have never been on a team together playing against a team who has countless matches together...

Thanks for elaborating on my original post guys. Glad some people like the idea.

Agreed.

It would just be an option, not forcing random partners upon people who join team games. That would destroy Tournies and Clans.

I like this idea as an optional extra, not as a default setting you can't get out of.

It is nice to play in a team with someone you know, but additionally it would sometimes be quite fun to be assigned a random team :)

No, they'll still have all of those that they want, since they arrange those through PMs and invitations to the lowly ignorant masses anyway.

Shuffle teams

Postby skychaser on Fri Sep 02, 2011 11:32 am

When I want to join a team game. I JUST CAN'T find a decent game. Why? It's simple, the masters of the universe mega upper generals from hell are always the first to join and they Always form the better team and surprisingly joining the other team will leave-me with two cooks who know nothing about the game mechanism so it doesn't matter my plan or strategy, it's almost impossible winning any team game one joins.

My plan would be to make ANY public team game shuffle all the players in the moment the game start, so this way things will be a litle more balanced and team game will even be possible. The way things are now is as balanced as a match between a MMA champion against a random paraplegic.

This way only private games will be team games and it fits a little better.

Haha this would be awesome! Would be even better if you could do some sort of "matchmaking" so that the game consists of all similar rank.

Of course still allow all team functionality to still exist

Re: Shuffle teams

Postby TheForgivenOne on Fri Sep 02, 2011 2:52 pm

This has been suggested before, and it is sitting somewhere in the archives right now. I do like the suggestion, but not the "ALL PUBLIC" games must be shuffled. If you could have the option to shuffle up the ranks, going in order (Best player on Team 1, second best on Team 2, third best on team 2, etc), then I would fully support this.

I think this is a great option. I love having my set partners for maps and going against other tough teams, but I understand that it would suck not to be part of a team. I used to be in the same boat. I wouldn't even go near a team game. I wanted to try, but was always fearful of what kind of opponent I would get teamed up with against experienced partners.

I say add it as 3 more game styles called:
    Random Doubles
    Random Triples
    Random Quads

You have my support!

This would also be fun among friends too.

I have a lot of people I play with on a regular basis and it'd be fun to set up a new Random Quads game and invite 7 of those people and let the site decide who's with me and who's against me.

New tournament ideas are already flowing through my head if this happens.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

As a player without regular teammates, I don't want to join a trips or quads game against 3 or 4 majors/brigadiers when I have no clue who will be joining my team. However, I wouldn't mind joining a game with 6/8 players who were then randomly divided into teams. It may also be a new way for people to meet & become teammates later on.

I can't understand why someone would give a "loud NO" to this. It would only be an option for team games; they could still be played as normal. Since no moderator ever commented on this, and it was never "rejected", I thought I'd bring it into discussion again.
