Total random games

Postby dakky21 on Sun Jun 01, 2014 6:30 pm

Concise description:
  • When starting a game, option to choose only the number of players and turn duration, and put everything else on random.

Specifics/Details:
  • All settings except number of players are random, including singles, teams, map, inital troops and all other settings.
  • When game is created, everything except number of players and turn duration is shown as random, and the settings are known when last player joins the game.
  • Possibility to select what will be random

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Many tourneys say "random" settings but they're just hand picked. No "real" random tournaments.
  • Lots of achievements need new unique players in team to get them
  • There are people who avoid some settings, this way everything is upon their luck (or they don't join)
  • Should be simple to implement

I took one game and painted it so you get what I mean:

That would just be awesome!
Obviously, in even number games there can't be triples unless it's 12 players. Ruleset would be created, but that's up to the admins...

As posted below, something like this should be implemented:

Very interesting! Of course the next step is to selectively choose which settings will be random. :) Or maybe only the Spoils/Forts/Fog options can be random? Just throwing out ideas.

FoxGlove, you are very right...

Why not have "Start A Game" like this:

Without the red arrows of course :-D

I'd definitely get behind this if you can choose which factors are random, as shown in dakky's most recent post. Would the drop-down for Polymorphic also need to have a random option as well?

While we're at it, let's make round length and password random too.

I like the idea of random settings, but adding a tic for each individual setting seems a bit much.

Feature creep, Caffeine. Every new tic makes the game finder/creation page that much more complex.

I agree completely, but I don't think having a random option for each variable makes anything more complicated. It's not like it's a new setting that people won't understand the function of - it's very straightforward. I would even argue it makes starting games more simple for newer players who don't understand the various settings.

Maybe instead of 'random' on each variable there could be an organised column of boxes to one side; you select whichever boxes you want click 'randomise', or something to that effect?

As per my original idea, round length can't be random, as if you get 1 minute speed when the last player joins the game, he will probably win it, because other players will deadbeat at that moment.

at the moment, we need less options, not more. games hardly fill as is, adding more options means even more games waiting to fill and never doing so. back in the "old days' of 15,000 users, OK. but not with the numbers we have now….

Instead how about an single tic that randomized all settings except number of players game type and round length. This way you could have random settings without adding a bunch of space to the game page.

That was the original idea... Since it is a total random game idea.

Re: Total random games

Postby Dukasaur on Wed Aug 20, 2014 6:51 am

I've run tournaments with random games, and while some of the games end up with interesting combinations, others are just terrible. No Spoils Assassing with Trench is just awful, for instance. Nobody can build up for a kill, you can't get to your target, and it just turns into a long drawn-out builder.

The next time I do a tournament with Random settings, there will be pre-set lists with popular combinations like Escalating Sunny Terminator or No Spoils Foggy Triples, and I will just randomize from among them.

Not sure if that could be applied here or if it's a complete derailment of your thread, but I would rather have an option to randomize from among pre-set lists of options rather than randomizing each option seperately.

i find that even when i choose a random map, generally the least popular CC maps pop up. Just this week, CITADEL and POKER CLUB... before that, some horrid polynesian map that was just a cluster... i think a lot of users feel that "random" isn't really random with map selection, just from conversations i've had... so, i wonder how truly RANDOM an entirely RANDOM game would be... Dukasaur had some really good points in his post above mine...-Jésus noir

Just pointing out the fact that some random maps when its a Quads
game are ridiculous because the 1st team to play wins 90% of the time.
IMO Super small maps should be deleted from the Quads random generator.
Like the idea Dakky :)

wouldn't you prefer a challenging game =/
In a clan war just a couple of these tiny maps can way the difference between
a win and a loss, don't ya think? You really want a tiny random map to
be a deciding factor??????? Or are you really that much of a ratings whore :-P

You know me well enough to know I don't care about my rank, which is what I assume you mean by rating.

I prefer a challenging game obviously, but if the feature is intended to be completely random then that's what it should be. It should not be an almost-completely-random-feature-but-we-don't-want-to-take-that-risk-or-that-risk-so-we'll-make-it-half-random feature.

I think what you're suggesting would be a separate entity. Dakky's suggestion gives the options of which settings you want to 'randomise' and which you don't. Yours is setting restrictions to the random map for different settings.
