[GP/UI] Choose Which Position (Color) to Join in a Game

Postby holyboy666 on Thu Aug 10, 2006 11:40 pm

Concise description:
  • Allow for players to choose the colors of their Armies when they enter a game.

Specifics:
  • When a player enters a game, they have to use whatever color, based on what position they enter. With this, they get to choose what color they will use during the game.
  • For each slot in a game, there shall be a "Join Game" link, allowing you to pick whichever color you want.
  • This can possibly be done ahead of time by having players put their color choices in order of preference.
  • However, the order of colors will remain the same. So for quads, it will not be Ex. G+O+Y+C vs R+P+B+S.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Give the option for players to possibly pick their favorite and/or lucky color
  • Will vastly help color blind players.
  • There's always been talk of "select your color" when joining a game
  • This presents a fairer option, to reduce farming by joining directly after a lower rank, who are generally more likely to give games away
  • Color order woulds stay the same (IE, no violet in a 1v1 game)
  • Could also be modified to represent "favorite 2p colors", "favorite 3p colors", etc etc
  • This does not work with team games, as it would screw up teams already joined. It's also easier to join team games as a preferred color at the moment.
  • Probably should not work with polymorphic either, until an expansion comes out to allow more than two players.
  • The same players are in the game, order is essentially "randomized", and you get to play as a preferred color most of the time.

It would be hard to implement, although that would be cool, I don't think its worth Lack wasting his time on.

Maybe instead of having this as an in-game option we could have the choice from 1-6 of the colours we want to be in our settings, it would just be like those ballot papers to fill out.

This would be easy to implement. Click join game and then get a popup asking which color you want.

The color is simply stored as property of your player for that game.

I like to be red, so i create my own games so i can be the first to join. Just dont join games when it wont be your color if color is that important to you.

if this was done then could ppl choose their colors in the oder the join? like when they join there is a question asking which color they want and then the next person will see the same thing minus the colors already chosen.

EDIT: I believe this would be a hassle to implement

Are you seriously worried about your colour being pink? That's the kind of thing an 8 year old gives out about.

EDIT: I just looked at your web site. If you're man enough to boast about choreographing dance moves and liking Molin Rouge, then you should be able to deal with the odd time you're pink in Conquer Club.

How about this:

Deal with being pink. Let Lack spend his time on more important things.

Hey qeee1. How about giving the guy a break. If he thinks its important enough to make a post about it who are you to criticize? If the site is here for everyone's enjoyment maybe this would make his experience here more joyful.

I personally like the idea of choosing your own color, but it doesn't really bother me. I usually am the last to join a game and get the color pink.

I'm fucking qeee1, that's who I am! (joke)

Anyway yeah the guy's complaining about what colour he is. I feel entitled to criticize the suggestion as the implementation of such would detract from more important matters, and detract from others possible enjoyment of the site.
