Join as Team...

Postby Me-Da-MiNoRiTY on Fri Nov 07, 2008 7:13 pm

Concise description:
When setting up a team game having seperate slots for joining as a team I.E

Team 1: <-FULL->
Me-Da-MiNoRiTY
DAT_WAT_SHE_SAID

Team 2: <-Join->
<-empty->
<-empty->

Team 3: <-Join-> (Password Required)
LFAW
<-empty->

Team 4: <-Join->
<-empty->
<-empty->


Specifics:
.When creating team games you can have seperate slots for teams to join.
.As soon as you join a slot an option should appear to create a password so that if your team mate can't quite make it then and there then you can still hold a team position untill they arive (the password should be opitional as some players like playing with randoms :lol: ). The draft above is just a rough copy of what it could look like

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
.When creating a game or joining team games, it can be an inconvinence when other players continuously enter your team, so this little scheme can stop that from happening.
.Also following that line, sometimes it can neven be too late as you may join a Speed game so to say and then another random joins before your friend or partner of choice and then you become stuck with a suiciding cook :shock: :?
.It can be easier in entering games, Currently you have to enter in order and if there is a Quads game going like so:

<-Team 1->
Player 1
Player 2
Player 3
<-empty->

<-Team 2->
<-empty->
<-empty->
<-empty->
<-empty->

Your team must wait to join as if you do so, one of you will be in team one and the other three will be in team two (meaning that you aren't playing together!) this will help for joining casual games especially.

I hope that this wouldn't be too difficult to do, but feedback is welcome :mrgreen:

Thanks

Would this be like a team version of the "Make private game go public" that is on the To-Do List? (Linky)

well if someone wants to join they would pm the person, if the person didnt know they would have to drop and rejoin, or have an option to change the password.

I think it's been suggested before, but it is a great idea. I would love to be able to join games (especially 4way dubs) knowing that I'm definitely going to be teamed up with the person I want to play with, and not get pipped at the post by someone scanning through the games. If I want to play with a random partner, I'll join as a single.
