I just created a teamgame and forgot to modify the settings properly in the way I wanted to... therefore, the game was created with Join manner = Random, instead of Join order.

In line with this suggestions: https://dominating12.com/forums/6/suggestions-feedback/3055/chats I'd like to see the default setting for creating teamgames to be changed from random to join order. Preferably with the option kept open to modify the default according to your own preferences (as there will surely be people who prefer to have random as default?).

No clue how everyone else thinks about it, so I suppose it'd be good to hear several players (who play teamgames?) voice their opinions about it.
Nothing important really, just something that might make life easier.

Thx,

I don't create enough games to know one way or the other. One could assume that whatever the most team games are created as it what should be the default. I would surmise it is join order.

I think random should be the default, since in most cases the teams aren't pre-arranged, and I'd like to avoid there being a tactical aspect to when you join games. The join order setting only exists because there isn't really a good way to do pre-arranged teams otherwise (such as selecting what team you want to join in the join screen). My guess is it will be replaced by something better in the future.

But I think that is the issue Cireon. I won't play team games with random people...only a select few. I think if you looked at the last years worth of team games (if you could exclude Tourneys) you would likely see the majority are pre-arranged...at least the first 2/3 to join are.

Yes very good idea,,, Join order as default is needed

More people who care to voice their opinion?

I really do believe the majority of people will only play teamgames with people they're comfortable playing a teamgame with - have it prearranged. Second, those who do not care who they'll be playing with... will they care if it's no longer random but on join order? For those people... I think nothing really changes... they'll still be playing with someone they didnt prearrange stuff with, the only difference is that they'll know before the game start (exceptions exist..), who they'll be playing with. And of course, people can still manually switch to RANDOM, if they would prefer so.

Current tally:

Yay: 4 ||||
Nay: 1 |

In order to do random right, you have to do nothing.

In order to do join order right, you should also set a password and do the invites in the correct order. If you do that anyways, the extra click won't be a problem.

Thx for your input Matty! The way you viewed this, is a way I never even thought about :p Seems like a valid take on it though - just not one that I use (but I could be the minority here).

Invites? Password? For join order, all you 'need' is to create the game and let your partner know. Partner should join shortly after. In case this goes wrong; recreate? (Thus far, I've never had problems with someone else joining before I/my partner joined 2nd). No passwords used. Do not care about who the opponents is/are (not entirely true, I do have a few people on avoid - but don't need to explicitly invite people), only care about who my partner is. At least, that's how I go about it - could be that others do indeed use password/invite (if so, please feel free to express this).

Then the extra click is the extra click - and it's not the effort that matters, it's the 'avoiding of mistake/s' that matter.
