What do you guys think of vote restarts?

8 posts in this topic

What it says on the box. The votekicking seems to work well, and votechanging levels. However, the voterestart seems a bit abuseable?

I just got out of a Cabin game where my teammates restarted it about four or five times in a row. The last time when we were running to the boathouse and the level escape. Basically, one person would die, then immediately vote for a restart, then the new people who joined in would restart... die, promptly quit or vote again. We only got to the first floor of the building TWICE.

I get it's a majority thing. But you have a 7 person game, 4 of them die - the 3 should still be able to finish the level, otherwise it's random restarting until everyone gets tired of doing the beginning of the level again.

Maybe a cooldown or some sort of restriction on it could help? People can only vote for a restart if they joined the game, rather than dying and voting? I'm not sure. This certainly hasn't happened frequently, but the few times it's popped up the game has been unplayable.

I just started playing NMRiH again, and voting to change level does not work well.

We had a full 8 person server. The map was replayed about 3 times at this point, and almost everybody wanted a different map. So, I started a vote. 6 yes, 2 no. It said there wasn't a majority. 80% of the people wanted to change the map, I think that is a majority.

In one match of Favela, they called the vote to restart 5 times because some scrub would die at the beginning of the round. I just wish people would realize that when you're so far into a game, with majority of players still alive, they're not going to want to cater to the scrubs who die early on and complain and demand everyone revert their progress just so they can die again.

We're looking into resolving some of the Voting issues in a potential hotfix (whenever our programmers are back from their break)

Democracy's a bitch though, I can say that :P

I think it's turned unplayable on multiplayer. I know the development team is working on it, but, it's my opinion and suggestion: i think restart vote should be accepted by activy players (the alive ones), doing this if the majority of alive ones agree, then okay, restart, to dont make injust. Imagine you playing a match, then everyone dies and start calling vote, when you got your fav weapon, then the match just restart? it's the worse feeling ever.Also, a suggest about nextlvl and changelvl is: only after the MATCH ENDS the map should changes.

I know there could be other problems like afk player (for that reason exist auto_idle_kick) and etc, but in my opinion: you died? you lost your turn, then patiently wait for others turn. Better wait or have a aggre than have a unpayable game on multiplayer, because the multyplayer of this game is incrible awesome: the coop thing and etc... well, i guess only before the vote thing on my opinion (i just sayin it get worse with the vote thing, not saying that ill play my fav game ever). For now, multiplayer is (in majority of random servers) unpayable. Just my vision and opinion abou the subject, and that's what i think. :D

NOTE: sorry about my english, becuz it's not my native langague, just waiting to express myself. :3

We'll most likely disable dead players from voting to restart/changemap by default
