Why is the new polymorphic game option limited to 2 players?

I think this is a great idea and like the new feature but surely if 2 players per slot is selected then there's room for up to 6 players in the game. This seems like a arbitrary and unnecessary restriction.

you are probably right and this will probably be changed at some point; I think it s just that they wanted to release it fast. multiplayer polymorphic will probably come in the next update.

Agreed.

Ultimately, hopefully it can be coded so that all slots can be decided. For example

Quads
RED: HardAttack
GRE: HardAttack
BLU: Arama86n
YEL: HardAttack
PIN: opposition
CYA: oppo
ORA: oppo
SLA: oppo

I'm guessing that's a little further down the line though.

i think solution is simple mate,
enable players to invite anyone including him/herselves in one team and in any times player would liked to.

for example, assume, i have 2 team mates i do like to team up with and i do like to play a 4 polymorphic....
now i would like to have one of three, me or one my two fellas using him twice, rest are for once....so it is like playing a quads game with 3 ppl in my team, one of 3 has two seats...

I think this is available in case game maker is given the flexibility to invite himself any times he likes and also to invite his friends for empty seats if any.

I think it's important not to get too carried away with the options..

I didn't mention demands. It is just my opinion. I would support 3, 4, 5 and 6 player polymorphic games, but 1 player against four or suchlike I would not.
