Sticky/Frequently played maps for Game Finder

Postby s1mparoo on Thu Jan 10, 2013 2:57 am

Concise description:
  • Ability to highlight X number of maps when using the game finder to sticky your most played/favorites.

Specifics/Details:
  • I love playing a handful of maps but it's an annoyance to find them using the game finder because to search multiple maps you have to scroll through and control+click. So going from Classic to Eurasia to Thyseneal, ad infinitum, and searching all of the selections is a hassle. I would love to have a "favorite map" option that I can add a bunch of maps to, then search all of them with the settings I choose.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Allows players to be able to quickly search their favorite/most played maps instead of having to scroll through the long list and control+click their combination

Hmm..instead of just having a category for "Favorite", how about customized categories (Favorite Large, Europe Maps, Trench Maps, Clan Maps, etc.) that you can name, then "Add/Drop" to/from?

Mapranks does let you do that, for particular settings as well. But it would be nice to have something in gamefinder itself, since maprank isn't officially supported..

Yeah that's another good idea and would work too.

Apologies, I didn't know. But seeing something that is officially supported/default I think could help those users unaware of addons to be able to sort maps better. Also I don't feel like having to downgrade my Firefox for MapRank to work since it's not supported by updated versions of FF =\
