Hahaha ... Team galaxies are diplomacy galaxies also. I know your only playing devils advocate and playing dumb with this one. Diplomacy galaxies have been here from the start and has failed to keep players. Where as war-only galaxies have only been around for a much shorter period and only added as a second choice in an attempt to save CS. It will take some time. get back to me in 10 years for the results.

Sure that's easy. Smile
First you choose 2 UNBALANCED teams ( the AR system does not exist).
Then the 2 big bosses scold their pawns if they don't obey their commands and ban them (Radiance) from playing any more team games. Then one or more players drop out to skew the outcome still further. Then you give out fame points to both the winners and the losers like some kind of participation trophy.

wc you have no idea what you are talking about
the last two team galaxies i played in were a lot of fun even if we lost to the better team
as for the two big bosses scolding their pawns that is all part of being on a team and managing the game
when you have actually played in one you will understand

oh and yes i have played in a few of them where we had players who i will never play with again as they have no interest in acting in the best interest of the team

getting in a game with someone you don't want to play with again doesn't mean team galaxies are a failure. There will always be issues with people getting along, just like in the form. Some don't play well with others. Doesn't mean the game-type is bad.

I agree. But like any team game your at the mercy of other players who who can drop out or not contribute to the team in a meaningful way.

so what is your point? I don't think you have one, as it seems to keep changing.

Perhaps we should play a Team Galaxy. War Cross can be a captain, and if no one else want's the responsibility, I will volunteer to be a Captain. It would give War Cross a chance to see the Team Selection process.

@War Cross, Did you know each Team gets a private chat room in the Forums?

That would be great Smile

I volunteer to be captain.

Team picking is pretty fair as far as i can tell....each gets an equal chance at all players...back and forth blind selection.

Maybe a smaller team galaxy....like 4v4 or 6v6 if we have enough people?

The captains can actually discuss the Teams in PM's and get a better balance. Do I dare say it, it takes diplomacy...I said it.

Standard TG, each captain get's a list of all players. The captain sorts the list and places his preferences at the top of the list. The TG Algorithm then sorts the teams based off rank.

If the Team Captains discuss it, they can influence the team selection and come up with Teams that both Captains think are balanced.
