The current way the voting system works could use some work IMHO. These are my thoughts:
- Match restart needs to be changed to “round restart” for stopwatch matches. Far too many matches are played through with the first round having less than 50% of the server full. When more players are added, this puts everyone in round 2 at a disadvantage. Round 1 should be restartable if more than 3 players join each side after a match begins.
- Round restart should then be available up to 10 minutes into the match. It seems like players tend to flock to servers after about 5-6 mins of gameplay. This results in the imbalance discussed above. There is no reason why we shouldn’t be able to vote for a restart of the round if 6+ players are added up to 10 minutes into a match.
- Team shuffle needs to be eliminated. There is no reason to team shuffle anymore–especially with the mm system in place. I am so tired of butt-hurt players shuffling teams because they are losing. The teams shuffle automatically after matches and besides, its not ranked-- its just pubs.
- The vote counter needs to be larger and players should be forced to make a selection of yes or no. One way to do this would be to not allow a respawn until the player votes. This wouldn’t obstruct a player with the vote message and would force them to make a selection.
Just my two cents. Anyone agree? Disagree?
