Licho did not respond whatsoever to an autohost suggestion I made and while I was one of the primary supporters of Springie in ages past with nearly a score of hosts, and still prefer the command syntax, I figure I might just turn over the idea to you, bibim. Personally, I think with some revisions SPADS might replace Springie for me when I bring back my hosting. It just seems like a number of the commands are different just to be different while others are implemented unintuitively.
Anyway... new balancing methods. Possibly very useful when the ladder returns. Anyway, I think these could be handy. Certainly more useful than Springie's ELO.
Anyway, keep it up!neddiedrow wrote: And, to be more directly constructive, if you're working on balance mechanics... ...here are three more to consider...
1. Random/rank balancing once server has reached manage value/full value, followed by elective switching by people who agree mutually to switch.
2. Random captain selection once server has reached manage value/full value, followed by turn-based draft selection by captain.
3. Random organizer selection once server has reached manage value/full value, followed by turn-based draft. Each turn all members of present team vote on next member, organizer has deciding vote in a tie.
