[GO] Total Random Games

  • When starting a game, option to choose only the number of players and turn duration, and put everything else on random.

Specifics/Details:
  • All settings except number of players are random, including singles, teams, map, inital troops and all other settings.
  • When game is created, everything except number of players and turn duration is shown as random, and the settings are known when last player joins the game.
  • Possibility to select what will be random

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Many tourneys say "random" settings but they're just hand picked. No "real" random tournaments.
  • Lots of achievements need new unique players in team to get them
  • There are people who avoid some settings, this way everything is upon their luck (or they don't join)
  • Should be simple to implement

I took one game and painted it so you get what I mean:

That would just be awesome!
Obviously, in even number games there can't be triples unless it's 12 players. Ruleset would be created, but that's up to the admins...

As posted below, something like this should be implemented:

I usually play random maps or random whatever when I can... I think this would be cool :)

And the creator wouldn't necessarily know what the map was first, if it stays random until the last person joins and the game starts...

I could see a Random Map being an option on the Start a game page. Would perhaps be a nice little addition.

Hehe, yes. Maybe we could have it for more options... but then you could adjust in your settings some options you would like to exclude, like if you want a random map, from a pool of 4 or 5 maps only.

don't like this bit. If its random it has to be totally random. Unlucky the people who get stuck in crossword, or get a triples game in indochina.

Yeah, if its going to be random then it should be chosen out of all the possible options.

Random game

Postby yeti_c on Wed May 09, 2007 4:13 am

Suggestion Idea: Button in "Create a new game" that randomly chooses between all of the options. (Perhaps a Random Freestyle and Random Sequential might be needed!)

Alternatively - Under Join a Game... perhaps a "Join a Random game" button... that finds a *public* game in the list and adds you in.

Why it is needed: Dunno

Priority** (1-5): 5

Not sure how you meant that, but I'd like it if it remained an unknown random thing until the game starts, and if you could do it with maps too and maybe use check boxes like you do in game finder to decide what it can be random between. (So you don't roll crossword if you don't like it or something)

Now that's a better idea... like it a lot... that way you'd not get "home advantage"

I'm rolling Yeti's suggestion of random game in with the random map suggestion. I think they are very close to the same thing.

I concur - a slightly more fully fledged random (i.e. not just map) but v similar... (I did check the todo but missed this one!)

Re: Random Map/Game Button *To-do*

Postby Enigma on Wed Apr 16, 2008 9:46 pm

I'd love to have a "Random Map" button under the Start a Game tab. I actually came to the forum to suggest it but was good and checked the sticky 1st :D. There are so many maps now that its difficult for the indecisive to pick the "best" one :P.

Random Game might be a good idea too- for those who dont care and just dont want to think about it.

With that caveat - remaining unknown until game starts - it's a more meaningful and worthwhile option.
However I'm not convinced that many people will use it beyond the initial novelty ...

Re: Random Map/Game Button *To-do*

Postby PLAYER57832 on Mon Apr 21, 2008 9:26 am

LOVE the random map part -- and the "keep it secret until begun" part.

I would also be happy with random choice of Terminator/Standard/Assassin ... even teams, though that might be a bit difficult & potentially more "hazardous" (for one, you don't want all cooks on one team .. fixable, just another complication). FOW/no FOW is definitely within the "spirit" as well.

HOWEVER, I never play Freestyle any longer, because I just cannot take the time to sit and wait until my opponent plays. If I were forced to in this option, I would just not use it. I suspect there are many in the same situation.

ALSO, I think it more or less goes without saying that SPEED/No Speed should not be randomized, either, for even more reasons. Of course, private/ non private would almost certainly have to be excluded .. for also obvious reasons.

Maybe you could just add a "random choice" option to EACH line? That way you could go through and pick "random" for any choice about which you don't care.

Random Option for creating games

Postby Inhuman14 on Fri Aug 22, 2008 10:15 am

Concise description:
  • This proposal would entail creating a random option for the game creator.

Specifics:
  • This will add a bit of fun for the player that like the thought of being excellent on any map, with any settings (assassin, terminator, cards/no cards, doubles,triples, etc.
  • This will provide for some interesting arrangements - 8 player Doodle Map Quadruples, 8 players on 8 Thoughts Terminator, etc.
  • This will also be a good way to introduce people to maps they haven't seen before.
  • People complaining about the type of gameplay should suck it up and remember what they signed up for - randomness.
  • Maybe a "randomize teams" option should be created.
  • I'm of the opinion that it will revolutionize clan wars, as a clan bragging about being able to tackle everyone, every map, every type will now be able to do so.
  • I think that if implemented there should be a random box for each separate type, so people can still have some control over the type of game if they wish.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • gameplay

*edit damn this was already suggested, I just missed it.

As noted by Inhuman14 in his edited original post this has already been suggested.

The original suggestion Random Map/Game Button *To-do* is marked to-do.

Please continue the discussion in that thread.

More random options

Postby KernowWarrior on Wed Sep 02, 2009 8:27 am

Love the random map option, any chance of extending it to spoils, reinforcement and fog also.

Would make the game more random.
