Join Team 2/3/4 Link [Done]

Postby banana_hammocks on Sat Apr 05, 2008 4:48 pm

Concise description:
  • After a team game has been created, instead of only having one "join game" link, have one saying join team 1, another for join team 2, and so on.

Specifics:
  • Much what it says above, an opportunity for players to join separate teams for team games. The join team 1 will put a player as the first player, team 2 as the 3rd, then 4th player (for doubles) and so on. After all slots for a team are full, the join team x button will be removed.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Why is this needed? This will speed up the starting of team games and make them easier to organise. A number of team game tournaments have been ruined by 1 person not being able to join for team one and so slowing the entire tournament (for example at the moment The Battle Of Emperors has been stalled). Whereas if this is implemented as long as people join the right team the other teams can also join straight away. Rather than having to wait for a replacement.

Done!

Hopefully this will make tournaments run smoother as well as give everyone some some choice over their opponents.

Not how I would have thought you would go about doing it, but man does it sure make my life easier now. :)

Thanks a million, Lack. This was the one improvement that makes everyone across the board happy. Now clan challenges are far easier to organize, tournaments will run smoother and faster, and even normal team games find some benefit.

Long time coming, and an excellent addition. Thanks again!!!

Might I suggest that down the road you find a way to differentiate between the teams for slightly less confusion? It might help in those 8 player doubles games so people don't get confused. Perhaps just a small space between the team groupings, or a subtle line of some sort.

Boss


Fixed with a new code: [TOT] (It stands for Tournament Organizer Teams...creative naming here at CC ;) )

It MUST have a game number, password, team number, in that order. It wont work if you don't have all 3. This should work for tournament games and clan challenges because it assumes that you have a PW on your game. The [TO] code still works for just PW protected non-team games. I have not tested trying to join a standard game with a TOT label, try at your own risk :)

Code: Select all
[TOT]GAME PW TEAM#[/TOT]

Code: Select all
[TOT]12345 PWRULEZ 1[/TOT]

Game 12345 (Auto-Join Game on Team 1)

This will join you to game 12345 on team 1 if the password is PWRULEZ.

Simple, right? :)

If anyone can think of a simpler way to do it, please do let me know.
Enjoy, hope it helps.
