General Modes Topic

Post by Guest on Sun Jun 08, 2008 5:36 pm

This topic is posted in here, simply because it affects all other categories. What i want to know is what kinds of mods would you like to have in FF-style map? Here are some that i could think of:

Team-Based Mods: (First thing chosen.)
Teams of 3 (-t3, the classic footman style. Creates as much teams of 3 people as possible.)
2 Teams (-2t, divides players in two.)
Free For All (-FFA, Everyone is against everyone. Complete chaos ensured, mainly a fun-mode.)

Race-Choosing Mods: (After Team-Based is decided, this.)
Random Race (-RR, everyone gets a random race.)
Pic Race (-PR, you are allowed to choose what race you want to play.)

Hero-Choose Based Mods: (And lastly, this is chosen.)
RandomHero (-RH, everyone gets random hero.)
PickHero (-PH, everyone gets to choose freely from all heroes.)
Racepick (-RP, Everyone chooses hero applicable to their race.)
Racerandom (-RR, Everyone gets a random hero applicable to their race.)

These are what came to my mind quite fast, and seem to be possible choices. They can probably be formatted using substrings. (-FFA, -RR, -RR.) for example would choose Free For All, Random Races, Random Hero from Race for each player. However, i'm up for any ideas/suggestion you might have. cyclops

A ffa mode would have to mean 12 different bases. I suggest making a control point mode if you make 12 different bases. Also mebbe a king of the hill Very Happy.

Not sure how FFA would work for the setup, unless we made a new design.

I've never been a big fan of randoms, because then you get the people who are like "OMGFQGAY I GOT THIS RACE IT SUX I LEV BANLIST". It's an option I'm willing to keep, but I sure won't use it.

Same goes for the random heroes.

Hmm, we're going to make race-specific heroes? Interesting idea.

I don't want to use text commands though. I would prefer dialogs, maybe a voting system. Or, like in Elemental TD, everyone votes by moving an acolyte across a board towards options.

Randoming should be done by the player and not the host. However, what i do hate is people tend to play the same race over and over so i do also like the idea of an all random.

Another set of game modes could be time limits like in azeroth arcane arena. There's a set time limit such as:

Short: 15 or 30 minutes
Medium: 30 or 45 minutes
Long: an hour or more

The team or players with the most kills at the end wins.

Dialogs could work better, agreed, but i still think that host should be the one choosing the gamemode. Sure, it is possible to make it go by voting, but usually people can't get into agreement on the modes, and someone leaves. This's coming from experience.

Time limits is a bad idea, while it might limit the duration it makes some game plans way more efficient than others, and creates imbalance within the game. It might be doable but i really dislike it.. >.<

I guess host can choose game mode. But I think randoming should be left almost entirely up to each player.

Uh, so how would FFA work if some people will be next to each other? Or are you changing the map a bit?
