wow, this is a really good idea, never even crossed my mind. Please implement this (obviously the overwhelming majority of people want it, 20 out of 22, and the 2 still want term.)

Team Terminator and Assassin Games

Concise description:
  • Allow team games to be played as terminator or assassin

Specifics:
  • Take Doubles, Triples, and Quadruples out of the 'game type' setting
  • Add a new 'Team Size' setting, or something appropriately named, for Single, Doubles, Triples, and Quads
  • Restrict the combinations appropriately for the current number of players, currently this would allow only for Singles and Doubles to be played as Terminator or Assassin games; however, once 12 player games come, it could be expanded to triples and quads
  • Terminator games could be scored either when a player eliminates another player (killing team's score averaged and calculated against individual's score) OR when one team eliminates another team (average the killing team's score against the average of the defeated team's score). Which to use is open for discussion.
  • Assassin games would have team's assigned other team's for targets. The assassin team would have to defeat all players in the target team in order to win.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • It would allow new types of team games to be played. 4 team assassin or terminator has always seemed like it would be fun.
  • I couldn't see this option being /that/ difficult to implement

Once again, this has been suggested before. The search is your friend :)


See what i mean? Merged about 20-30 different Team Assassin/Terminator threads. And yes, that took me quite a while

I had done a search to check, but guess I didn't check far enough back or use the right keywords. I checked the first couple pages for 'team assassin', I think it was. I also checked the first couple of pages of the suggestions forum to see if I could find anything and didn't turn anything up. I'll see about looking harder next time... I was kinda surprised nothing had come up when I looked.

So, that being said, from the couple pages that I've read through, it seems that this was a very popular idea. Is it still as popular and if so, should we be getting this stickied?

Perhaps a poll would be a good place to start to see how much support this has? I tried to create one, but it looks like I can't since I'm no longer the author of the thread.

I have to wonder where all the support for this went. I would have thought that it was a more popular suggestion that it's appearing to be... especially considering the previous threads.

I think it's due to the fact they are almost all old threads, and people forgot about them. May i suggest sending PM's to your buddies? Or how about posting a link to this thread in GD?

Also, for when/if the game size goes up to 12, how about this for Assassin? Instead of "Team A goes for Team D", you have, "Team A-1 goes for Team C-2, Team A-2 goes for Team B-1" That way nobody would know who has who, and if 1 player from a team gets pegged off, everyone else still wouldn't know who the second player has to peg off.

average the killing team's score against the average of the defeated team's score

This is how I've always seen the team terminator games working. As for assassin games, I would think that having one full team be the assassin for another full team would work the best.

This is of course presuming this suggestion ever gets submitted for consideration... I have to say that I've been a bit disappointed by the turnout for this one.

New Game Type: Terminator/Assassin for Doubles games

PostPosted: Mon Sep 06, 2010 7:48 pm
by greenoaks
Concise description:
  • When i create 3 or 4 team, 8 player games i would also like to make some of them Terminator or Assassin style games

    This could be implemented by allowing Terminator or Assassin to also be checked if Doubles has been selected

Specifics/Details:
  • For Terminator games: points are awarded when a team is eliminated to the team that did the elimination
  • For Assassin games, each team has a 'target' team, eliminate that team and the game is won

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • Doubles games will have the same game varieties as singles games so all the usual benefits/drawbacks will apply

I'm still very interested in seeing a version of this implemented. I believe at this point we've been working at getting past the lack of support issue. It seems that many people are interested in this being implemented, but never show up to voice their support.

I think it also needs some figuring out of the details for how terminator and assassin would work, but the support problem seems to be the big one.

In terms of how it would work, the only difference I would suggest be made to the above suggestion is to have the points awarded when a player is eliminated, rather than a team, but even then I'd be happy with both implementations.

no, it is a team game so points should be awarded when the entire team is eliminated

Yeah, the suggestion has been suggested over and over again over the last three years. I'm glad that it's in the accepted pile. It gives me hope that maybe within the next 5 years we'll be able to play team terminator and assassin games :)

There needs to be a way to have teams and things like terminator and assassin it would add in a bit more variation (yes I know theres already a ton of variation but who asked you)
