The Team Medals is great, and I like the Battle Royal game. If I may make a suggestion, once a player is eliminated from a BR game, s/he should be allowed to enter a new one immediately (I have to wait 10 days to play another after I was killed).
And different maps.
Other than that, great stuff.

We will continue to evaluate how often Battle Royales can be played, this is sort of our first test! In regards to different maps, the Carographer Team will soon be working on some Foundry information for mapmakers that want to take on creating a Battle Royale map, so hopefully we'll eventually get some map flavor added!

Points won is capped at 100 per losing player. 52 players. So in a standard game, the theoretical max win is 5100 points, is this correct? I mean, someone right at the lower end of the scoreboard could jump to Conqueror with one win. That'd be pretty funny :-)

Apparently this hasn't even been comented on so far. I'd pretty much like that too, since I always use the game finder to join games.

And while we're talking about the game finder: Could you please add the Colosseum map to the game finder? Or is there any other way to find BR games and I'm just too stupid to see it?

Colosseum is indeed an option in the game finder map picklist, towards the bottom. It is a 'Closed' map (since it isn't open to publicly created games).

You can also search for Battle Royale games using the Game Finder's 'tournament' finder, by say searching for 'lackattack' as an organizer, or 'Battle Royale' as the name of the tournament.

But simply clicking on the Battle Royale link is the easiest if you are looking to join a game!

That really won't get you all the BR games. Just the BR games since the update. Past BR games need to be found too!!

Seems like every time I've checked lately, the games have been Terminator. Is that just how it's randomly turned out or is there some kind of problem that's causing terminator games to be produced at a higher rate?

Edit: Now that I think about it, I don't think that I've ever seen assassin. Aren't all the settings in play and it's just randomly chosen which ones get picked?

Edit2: Of course, maybe the games have been slow to fill and I've been seeing the same ones every time I check in.

I think lack set it such that there's one Terminator and one Standard. Assassin would be too broken.

I'm pretty sure this is correct. I believe there is one of each. I may be wrong about that.

Assassin would be bad on a game like this though.

When I looked, it was 2 Terminator. Perhaps they are set to alternate. Maybe I was looking at the same games for a while and it just so happened that both ones were up as Term. I see that right now there is 1 Std and 1 Terminator

Upon further thought, that's probably what it is. If it was ALWAYS 1 Term and 1 Std, then unless both games filled at the exact same time, either the FS or Seq game would ALWAYS be Term or ALWAYS be Std and the other one would be the opposite.
