it would then be truly random and serve its purpose. By eliminating speed, there are no issues with people getting kicked out due to timing.
No, it wouldn't serve it's purpose. Notice how it's called "Random Map" and not "Random Game"? Besides, that'd be kinda dumb... I wouldn't like that. I wouldn't, however, mind another little radio button beside each of the options that'll randomize it.
That's what WM is proposing. The ability to make all settings random but also to choose specific settings to randomize. I agree that its a good idea, but as Andy said we should first make sure that the random map feature is popular. I like it at least!
No, he said that the random map feature should randomize all those settings, as opposed to just maps. Meaning, if you want a random map, you'll get a random game, you wouldn't really have a choice. If that was the intention, I apologize, it's just that that is what WM said.
Actualyl I said that the feature should randomize all of the settings and teh user should be able to pick settings that would not randomize. SO if you only wanted a random map, then pick all of the other settings and hit Random. If you want to have 5 random attributes, pick the others you don't want random and then go.My point was that there should NOT be a random map only option. The random option should be for all attributes
, (except, speed and public/private - to make sure that dead beating and non joinable games don't happen) and each player gets to pick what is and is not random.
But it does not really matter anyway. Right now we only have random maps and will need to wait for others.
