We need a better way to organize competitive play
« on: May 15, 2011, 11:49:38 am »

This isn't a feature request topic because we just need a better way to organize wars, not something specific.

Because the IRC for the wars or pugs become a clusterfuck of spam and it's hard to get correct info out of it. It's so difficult to start the war because of this.


A screenshot from the setup of a tf2 lobby. If we could get something like this instead of a disorganized IRC channel, wars could be arranged within 5 minutes.

I see no downside to using a Steam group to organize players.

It's not that the irc has people from outside the war, it's just that a chatroom just doesn't cut it anymore

If you call people and tell them to get in it, they tend to do so.

We could have a custom button for wars.  Like, if you click "Join" there would be a button that reads "Wars."  You type your name, choose your war class(es), and after the master war server is full, the games can begin.

i agree, organization is one of the most annoying difficulties in wars. people being on the wrong team or not knowing what's going on always get's in the way. this lobby's main purposes should be to put people on teams based on a list of name made by the host or some similar system, turn off autobalance, and switch spectating subs onto the appropriate teams if someone leaves.

You mean ingame or on the web like tf2 lobby?

A web one is pretty unnecessary. Getting an irc bot to help with things would probably be much easier to do. Pug na does it in irc right? How does that work?

Alright googled and found some info on it: http://commforums.com/tf2-pug-na-t1304.html?s=4301f864c0489c5ca5a2c33410c934c4&t=1304

Seems like somethig similar would be useful, and the captain format seems like the best mode to use.
