Feature Removal/Reversion Suggestion Thread

Recommended Posts

Please discuss the following feature removal/reversion suggestions and add any of your own. The developers read forum threads, [1] and removing features is faster than adding them. [2]

These suggestions in this opening post prioritize decreasing the amount of time to find a game over protecting new players, since the main complaint of recent steam reviews [3] is player count, not game difficulty.

Remove all queue options except competitive 1v1, 2v2, and 4v4 ctf.

Pro: decrease queue time [4][5]

Con: removes an option

Note: this suggestion was once dismissed [6]

Remove level requirement on matchmaking.

Pro: increase players able to queue for matchmaking

Con: possibly discourage new players who take a bad loss shortly after installing

Note: AFPS experience transfers well enough that reflex level is a poor measure of skill

Revert to 1.1.4 (make exp_plus servers visible and playable)

Pro: easier to find match. easier to test new rulesets.

Con: allow cheating in race. possibly confuse new players who do not know they are playing on a modified ruleset

Note: CR2[7] and sushiflex[8][9] are successfully running on 1.1.4. 1.1.5 does not prevent new rulesets, it just splits the player base.
