    Hello CubeCraft Community!

    My Name is Norris! As you can see I have never been very active on the CubeCraft forums, however I have been quietly playing away on the server for a few weeks now. Anyway, enough of formalities. I wanted to discuss the recently updated and very enjoyable game "Blockwars". It seems to me that this gamemode has a unique feature that automatically balances the teams when players disconnect or leave, when seems to be a very fair and cool feature. However I have noticed some issues with it, players who have worked hard with their team to get in a winning position can be moved to the opposite team towards the end of the game causing them to lose the game when they really deserved to win it. This can be an annoyance to players who have worked hard to win the game.

    Here is an example of it happening to me (I censored out a guy swearing):[​IMG]

    Now, I have a few suggestions on how to prevent this from happening:
    1. Prevent the team balancing from moving players in the last 1:00 minute of the game. At this point the game will generally be won or lost and transferring players to the other team won't really do much to aid their attempts to win.
    2. Another suggestion could be to prevent moving players who have done the most to aid their team in winning. For example players who have: Captured a flag, Killed more than 5 Players or Broken more than 20 blocks on the enemies turf.
    Anyway thank you for reading and I hope you consider my suggestions.
    Norris~

    PS: If this is in the wrong sub-forum I apologise.

    I completely understand what you are talking about. I love the second idea, and that should be implemented for sure!

    The team balancing problem has been fixed in the recent block wars update.

    I mean, this screen shot was taken after the blockwars update thread was posted so either it was a glitch or it didn't work :p
