  • switch teams easily with all chat: "switch"

    Anyone wanting to switch teams may now type "switch" in all chat. When players on opposing teams both type it, they'll both take each other's place immediately. This gives a task to players complaining about the side they've landed on.

    Only works pre-game.

    I haven't put throttles on it. I might, if folks don't self-regulate. I haven't designed this to improve balance, so hopefully it won't do too much to harm it.

    Oh, and...

    If you've chatted 'switch', you can chat 'switch' again to withdraw your request and remain on your team.

      Used this last night for the first "real" time. Super easy and worked brilliantly.

        Can I activate this by saying "switch?"
        (With the semantics of a request rather than a command, so in triggering the feature, I am also asking for a volunteer.)

          When you chat 'switch', one of two things happens: you're switched, or an automated announcement invites reciprocal chats. Have you seen it?

          To keep things simpler, I chose the same input whether you're coming or going. Indeed, the input isn't really meant to be tied to coming or going, per se, but with your willingness to switch teams if anyone else cares to. The idea is that you can have no idea what the state of other players is, and you just chat 'switch' and you're done. If you get switched, fine. If not, fine.

          Since deployment, I've imagined a potentially problematic scenario wherein you chat 'switch' without a response, then plan with your original team, then get a volunteer such that you're suddenly on the other team despite knowing your original team's plans. So, I might time box request lifespans. I've kept the mod's design very simple to start, and I'm waiting to see which imagined scenarios actually become problematic.
