, ask and it shall be given. Check out the User Guide to Conquer Club Saved Searches
. This post will tell you how to install this nifty add-on which will allow you to save named sets of information on the Game Finder page, and will even autoload one default search setup whenever you go to the Game Finder. (Along with the default, I have saved a search named BLANK to clear that all out when I am looking for something unusual.)
, if you want a random selection from a subset of the maps on the site, that's not available yet. The site's random selection is from all the maps. It might make a nice extension to the Saved Searches, though. How would you like to see it work?
well, i can think of 2 possible ways.
way 1 is select a 'random' from different presets of map pools. for example full random (as it is now) 'balanced random' which looks at the other map settings and only seeks a map in the map pool that fits the current settings. (then off course in order to do that there needs to be a general consensus on which maps are 'balanced' for which group of players.
another way of doing it is a bit like how blizzard does it in Warcraft 3 and Starcraft 2. In there, you're allowed to veto down a few maps (ofc. since CC has a load of maps, it would be more then a few). and then after the game has matched players together (ofc. on conquerclub there's no automatic player matching, or at least not yet) it loads one of the maps that is not vetoed down by any player. occacionally when there's no possible map to choose from because all the maps have been vetoed by at least 1 player, it will just pick one of the least vetoed maps. this way players may vetoe down specific maps they don't like to play, and CC will just pick a random map from the rest of the pool.
i think the second way may actually be the easiest and most fun way to implement.
(and now that i think of it, some kind of auto-matchmaking system would also be quite funny)
