Random Team Variable

We all know how annoying it's when we try to play pub and a bunch of morons stack either the marine team or kharaa team making the game start with 2 brave souls, 1 in each team... We probably also know the case where a server is filled with people from 1 clan who all want to play in the same team no matter how much it inbalances the game.

I was thinking, wouldn't a simple forcerandom variable solve all those problems occuring in pub games? I'm aware of the random plugin but that plugin is only installed on 1% of the servers maximum... <!--emo&:angry:--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/mad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='mad.gif'><!--endemo-->

    I thought this was a game where we got to pick what we wanted to do, what we wanted to play, not have everything picked out for us, EH?

    Leave it for the plugin. Maybe somebody should remake the plugin so that anybody left in the ready room 15-20 secs after a map start then they get swithed automatically.

    Hi, Xcan. I can understand your frustration.

    But Flayra can't program the manners of others.
    There is already an in-game way to have random-teams. You just need to get folks to agree on using it. This isn't a game issue, its a people issue.

    That said, leave people-issues for plugins. Solving such issues may fix a problem.. but it also hurts us genuine pub players. What if I have been pining some some gorge loving and it keeps sticking me on marine everytime? Doesn't seem like a game I'd stay and play very long.

    Flayra = code game to solve computer/technical/balance issues
    NS fans = code plugins to solve people issues

    thx. <!--emo&::gorge::--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/pudgy.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='pudgy.gif'><!--endemo--> <!--emo&::gorge::--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/pudgy.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='pudgy.gif'><!--endemo-->
