Hey Jason, jhood, Nemo and the Crew.
I wanna suggest a Team-Randomizer for strict games.

It should be like a simple dice game. If the game is locked, the server/game needs to get how many players are in. Then you press a Button and the Newswire shows a random constellation of Numbers.

Example:

ct3 with the following 4 players, Status = server locked:

Nothing, Fubar, indio, Cola

Nothing pressed the button and the Newswire shows: 1,4,3,2
something like that.

Im not sure what to do in handicap matches. It also will not be fair sometimes, but the results of the randomizer are not binding anyway.

If there are a lot of players in the game with no clue about Teams it may be a good way not to loose on average 10 Minutes every game.

Why not just do round robin play? that's how we always used to solve this little problem. It amazes me that you guys don't do it anymore, switch the teams up into every variation, and if you find a even one, stick with it play a few times.

I fail to see the point. It doesn't solve anything. The problem isn't coming up with suggestions, it's getting everyone to agree.

The biggest problem is that people think they know how good someone is. In most cases people don't have a clue, in some cases they think they know, but said person is playing badly that day, or is drunk out of their skull and can hardly see the screen, which is why round robin teams work so well, you just switch teams up until you find a good combo, and go for it. Players these days are too afraid of 'losing' to bother trying a challenging team matchup. Which is why the pool of players is just not very good anymore, noone is willing to move outside of their comfort zone, so what if you get a bad matchup and it only lasts 10 minutes? most days people seem to spend more than 10 minutes just arguing over teams. Play the bad matchup, switch it up for the next game, no wasted time.
