Different colors, same team

How to host a game and locate others

Different colors, same team

Postby Bees » Wed Jul 27, 2011 9:14 am

I really like the gamemode where you can play with someone else in the same team. However, it can sometimes be frustrating (which is also part of the fun of course) when your teammate applies a morph you weren't expecting.

A solution for this "problem", or at least it would be a different game mode, might be to give each player its own color, but let them team up for the end result. E.g. blue and red versus white and green. This could enhance the game in several ways: different colors have different start locations or could have the same and the same thought could be used for the final exit: each team has one exit, or each color has its own exit.

Just a thought and interested in your opinion about it!! :)

At one point during development we did support "team" play, defined as multiple groups (colors) could join a team and scores/winloss would be determined by teams and not color groups. This extra layer of grouping caused some trouble so we disabled it but it would be nice to evaluate how much work it would be to bring it back in. We'd need a simple GUI to indicate which groups have joined which teams and then add indicators during the match as well. Players would join groups, and groups could join teams. Thanks for bringing this up, i'll check into it!

Great, good luck with that! I guess such a game-mode would be most useful when people don't use voicechat or aren't comfortable with someone else in 'their color'. Besides that it can lead to new strategies, attacking one color of a team, etcetera...:)

Also, since each group has different morphs a map could be created so that teams must work together to get to the exit while also defending attack. This could also lead to a "protect the president" style map in which one group has only 1 clone and their teammate group has to prevent that clone from perishing due to attacks.
