CMS, why don't you link to that previous suggestion so that this can be merged and all support for the idea can be in one place?

I support this suggestion. I would add one other benefit: the ability to use tools like "PM team" or whatever it's called prior to the game. I've often wanted to get everyone on the same page before the game fills and it's tedious to do this by doing it manually.

I agree that you shouldn't be able to see starting positions. But I only came to this conclusion after I thought about it for a second. For those that might think similarly to my initial thoughts, the problem is that in, say, an 8-player game, a player could decide he doesn't like his drop or that another player has a better drop. This player could drop the game, tell a friend to try to join in a certain position, or try to himself join in that position.

In game chat while waiting for Battle Royal game to fill up

Postby legionnare on Mon May 27, 2013 11:39 am

Hey, was reading the Battle Royale thread and noticed that a lot of people have accidently dropped their game and not been able to rejoin. I've done this with normal games a few times mistaking the Drop Game button for an Enter Game button ( I do daft things sometimes).

With this in mind would it be possible to have it take you to chat log instead. This would let the waiting players have a bit of banter while they wait? Maybe even forge alliances like gladiators in the ring, uniting against a common foe before ruthlessly turning on each other when the time is right?

Terrible idea. The idea of forging alliances in BR games is pretty lame to be honest. They are a lot of fun just as they are.

If that happens, it needs to be reported in the Bugs Forum. If you drop a BR, you should be able to join another immediately. Bugs Forum: viewforum.php?f=506

I agree with Shannon that making alliances ahead of time is a bad practice and should be against the rules if this were implemented. However, the issue with this being implemented is that if a game never starts, then there are no records of chat kept. I'm gonna go ahead and merge this with a few other threads.

MERGED:
AND REJECTED for this reason previously listed by our former leader:
