Woops this reply wasnt meant for this thread, my bad...
this seems like a pretty cool idea. I'm just confused by the differences between this thread and the other one (in particular, this one seems to say 5 players maximum, while the other suggests 5 players minimum)
@verus: good point, the problem is, that i myself havent got any team-experience by now. so suggestions are welcome.
point of the limit: c2 doesnt have so much players that we can make teams with 10+ ppl. so i rather choose more and small teams, to be able to make a league somewhen.
point of the minimum: if there s a team with 3 pros, and no more other players then it ll be pretty damn unfair to play vs this team. which leads to another problem:
- how many good players is a team allowed to have? i dont think we can limit the teams somehow, i just hope that the good players here wont stack up their teams too much. it could get pretty boring to play vs a team with jt, maserati, acidboy and polly for example.
as its impossible to find some sort of fair limitation (e.g. only two top20 players per team allowed -> mase isnt in the top20 yet :/ )i hope that the teams will get some sort of balanced, or at least not too super-pro.
so yeah, all in all i suggest that a team has to have 3-6 players. minimum 3, maximum 6. content?
@t0x and Versus: I think the maximum of 6 is fine for starters and we'll see what happens.
The problem with good players stacking isnt really a problem i think. If those ppl would stack no1 will challange them, so I believe this will balance itself out(hopefully)
Maybe not a "hard" limit, but some rules that would prevent "naturally" from forming teams of only good players : e.g. if a multiplayer match only counts if it is "balanced" (with respect to avg bpm of all ingame players for instance), then there would be no benefit from a "best players" team, that would be able to match no one.
i updated my post ^
I think it would be interesting to add when the different teams are most likely able to play. Especially if they are recruiting new team members in this forum. :)
So i have a question, why cant you change your squad mid-game? I would like to bring my entire team to a teamfight, if possible, and then everyone in my team can play at least 2-3 games each. That way i can switch with someone if my fingers hurt too much ;D And everyone gets to play, without waiting for another challenge, which might take a while.
cause it makes things wayyyy more complicated. if you change your team after each game, at the end only the best of the teams will be playing, since we all would like to win. also, it makes the team-thingy somehow not that serious anymore. would be pretty lame if you re not able to play 20 games in a row :P
and it might be frustrating for a team if you re changing the squad always.
all in all, i m against squad-changing mid-game. but i wont bitch around if i m the only one who s against it. other opinions?
