Like in the new ALs,there should be an option to  shuffle players in teams to prevent stacking(which happens way too often).As I said it should be an OPTION when making a lobby where you can tick the Shuffle system on and off(depending if you want it or dont because of playing with friends etc).It would be a great deal to everyone and I think lobbies would start faster

If we talk about an option, it makes sense.

Ofcourse this is kinda of a big deal so we should give the chance to have it or not,especially if your scrimming with some team etc.

People complain from time to time about lobbies being stacked with new players on one team and experienced players on another.

 

My suggestion: Option to mix the teams randomly for lobbies. You just choose your class rather than team, and after the ready up process finishes the teams are mixed randomly.

 

This is what I'd like for it to look like in the lobby creation screen

We called it AL. It was a bummer.

ALs were consistently a much better lobby experience, I found. The balancing was a bit dodgy at times but it was a marked improvement.


But on this suggestion, nah. It's just another reason why ALs won't be as special.

People don't play AL anymore because it takes more time I guess.  Implementing the scramble option to normal lobbies would be pretty cool.

So the idea is to add this option in the create lobby menu and make it a checkbox similar to the "kick players from server" and "mumble required". If this option is checked, it will create a lobby with grey teams that will be later made by your algorithm exactly as AL. Lobbies with this option active should be marked in the homepage with a small icon like the mumble ones. Will this stuff require too much work or is implementable? :)

If all lobbies scrambled, why would we need advanced lobbies?

The purpose of this idea is not to make all lobbies scrambled, we're talking about an option to let lobby leaders choose between scrambled and regular lobbies. I can see a big potential in this idea.

Perhaps, although it would really take away from the most interesting part of AL. But it would be interesting in normal lobbies.

Instead of doing the full balancing you could just have regular lobbies have a setting to do a random scramble.  Advanced lobbies get the balancing from tpr and regular lobbies just get randomized.

I don't see what advantages a random system has that the ALs-like doesn't. In both cases u can't stack and u can potentially play vs friends, but the 2nd system at least makes the lobby as fair as possible.
