    Dont make its a popularity contest...

    Rescently i have been noticing alot of people are joining teams because "X" player is on marines or on aliens....

    I have been holding off and joining last and i always watch were people are joining....

    I will not name names becuase we are all adults here...

    but i mean come on guys that person you are following wont hate you if you kill them.... (im a prime example of this)

    so before joining plz look at the team roster and join a team that will make a game good.

    if you see the marine join portal full go aliens even if you were them last game...

    Ill tell everyone right now that I will be more than likley joining marines almost exclusively untill i get a hang of the maps again. Its just easier for me to run around as a marine than at mach 3 as a skulk.

    But yes, I agree with what billy has to say. Join a team that you think is a challenge and have fun with it.

    Yea guys. Quit joining whatever team I join.






    I don't go on a certain team just because of a certain player. My usual formula:

    Join game, go on aliens (or marines if they need the player)
    Play on that team until they win.
    Switch teams.


    Pretty simple

    Speak for yourself, I harbour a deep hatred for anyone that has the audacity to kill me

    i think we should delete the marine and alien portals from all maps, then they only have random team left!!!!!!!! muwahahahahaha

    or we could just accept the fact that people will always want to play on the same team as their friends.
    And god said "LET THERE BE HALF-LIFE!" and so it was...

    I would LOVE to see this done, in fact. Remove the ability to join a certain team. No matter which portal you walk (or bind) into, you're randomly assigned a team.

    This was a topic in another thread somewhere.

    I personaly am indifferent, but I think I lean more towards having it the way it is at the moment.

    Do this, and the community will die. Server I played on before TG did this, installed a plugin that made every portal random. Traffic dropped in half the next day.

    The server closed in a month.

    Take away a players ability to choose, and the player will take their business elsewhere.

    I know I would.

    If you don't believe me, talk to [SMK.r]Anderson/Sasuke, he was there as well.

    I played on a very active server once, a while back, that had a similar plugin. The games were phenominally balanced, and no one questioned it. I wonder if that server still exists. I can't remember the name, as I rarely stray from our server (haven't since 1.04, really).

    Yeah, but then you can't manually adjust the teams if they need it, nor can you ensure that the marines get the extra man without using another plugin like OddMan.

    It would be better if the portals were random for X seconds after a map change, then functioned normally. This would be a simple hack to the existing randomteam_mm (IIRC) metamod plugin. I'd do it...but until I learn to compile plugins for windows usage, or someone here speaks up that they can compile...

    I could set aside some time to learn small and script it in AMX. Problem is, I just scored a brand new car, mario kart: double dash, and Horizons, so I have a lot demanding my time

    there are mods to do exactly this. I'm not sure if they are well liked or what. We talked about this a while back.

    I could do this with AMX/small. Unless I am forgetting about forgetting something... ().... I'm sure Wyz could also.

    I don't think I would have a problem with this in theory, but I worry about the unforseen consequences. (see comments above by others).
