Substitutions

Post by Chestal » Mon Feb 03, 2003 1:15 pm

It has been the policy, to allow teams to change players during a match. This allows teams which show up with more than 3 (or 2) players to give everyone a chance to play or replace a player which has some unexpected problems. There has always been some discussion whether subbing is fair or not, however.
The basic rule is to do it in a fair manner, i.e. the fact that the new player will popup on the home base should not give the team an advantage (for example by switching players, when the other team is near your flag). However, it has shown that maybe we need stricter rules. One idea would be to allow substitutions only after your or the other team captured a flag. In case of an emergency (computer of one player has crashed or something) it might be ok to strive from that rule, btu I guess it's a good guideline.

Your thoughts?

I would like to see a limit of these switches. I've been in battles where it became abit annoying as suddenly the tank you hunted vanished and another entered. I think it makes the game abit noisy.

So I would like to keep the switches at a minimum IMHO, eg. 2 or so. The exception is, still, if players crashes or have network problems.

cuz zees causing the problem, i would like to clarify that it isn´t our intention to get an advantage. there are only often too much zees online .. who of course want to play.
on the contrary it became often a disadvantage because of delay/misunderstandings between the two players. but i understand the problems of other teams.

i agree to chestals suggestions to allow substitutions only after capturing a flag. and in my behalf a upperlimit of 3 substitions in a match is accebtable.
imho that would be a fair rule.
