Actual Balanced Lobbies
Posted 23 January 2017 - 06:44 AM
There used to be a site where you could sign up for certain classes and then a captain would pick their teams like today's Pugchamp. Only difference is that it was for hl. You guys could potentially do that where we could sign up for multiple classes or if you want to keep the layout the same have people join the class they want and instead of an auto balancing system have team captains pick through their players in order of scout, soldier, pyro, etc. down the line.
This system would replace the auto balance lobbies and you could make it a donator perk or an advanced user perk.
Pros: Higher level players would want to regularly play these lobbies. People would take lobbies more seriously. It would be a better competitive experience.
Cons: People wouldn't be able to mess around in lobbies as much. People might not get picked on the same team as their friends.(Which is currently how balanced lobbies work anyways.)

Such system caters to a niche of "elite players" that know each other very well. This is not the case for TF2C, so such system would not work here.
I'm very much aware that proper balancing is desired as much as it is difficult to achieve; even Valve fails to get it right...
Thanks for the suggestion!
