Random map

Postby Donelladan on Tue Sep 17, 2013 3:49 pm

When you choose random map, is it possible to end up playing on a beta map?

No. Betas and closed maps are excluded from Random.

If i create a 12 player random game, can it be on a map which doesn´t support 12 players, like AOR? Or are those maps excluded for random with too many players?

I don't know with 100% certainty that it is coded to prevent that, but obviously it should be. I have not heard any reports yet of random map w/ more than 8 players causing errors due to max player per map.. but there haven't been that many games yet either.

I've get to see an 8p random end up on AoR or Feudal. I think that it is safe to assume the same care in coding was used here.
