This is fantastic, good work Fizzer!

Will there be official ranking on such things or is it just something behind the scenes? Will we be able to see what we or other players are rated?

This looks absolutely amazing. So much potential here... but so much left unclarified as well.


To what extent does open gaming continue to exist after this change? It is implied that all auto-games will cease to exist. Does it have any additional effects on the current open gaming environment?

How do the 30 templates interact with the broader settings such as MD/RT or 1v1/FFA/Team?

Are there any mechanisms in place to ensure template variety before (or in spite of) the popular community vote?



I'm sure I'll have more...

Just to release more info

It appears at the top, you click it, select the amount of games then play them like normal games.
When you want it to stop, just uncheck the box.

Not to complain, but autopicks has already killed my drive to keep playing, as I don't feel like grinding out games that will be 50% luck to get to the good templates.

Open games will still be there -- the only change is the auto games being taken away from it. Which will likely make it stronger, since most of the autogames are just a distraction.

How do the 30 templates interact with the broader settings such as MD/RT or 1v1/FFA/Team?

All templates are playable MD and RT. Each template will be either a 1v1, FFA, or Team, as defined by the person who proposed the template.

Are there any mechanisms in place to ensure template variety before (or in spite of) the popular community vote?

The 30 templates are entirely up to the community + votes. No variety enforced for those 30. There may be a few additional ones that are there to control the newbie experience, but they'll be in addition to the 30 and once you get past the newbie phase you can just uncheck them and never look at them again.

Will your ratings on each template be show?

Yep! See Timinator's screenshot.

Is there an option to have a boot time of 3 days?

Right now all MD templates are 25 hour boots. The games are supposed to be quick, after all. The boot time of all RT games will be up to the template.

as I don't feel like grinding out games that will be 50% luck to get to the good templates.

It's true the first template is the "newbie template", and you have to win that one twice to unlock the next template. If it's really luck, as you say, then it should only take you 4 games on average to get past it. Hardly a grind :) Put yourself in the mindset of a brand new player who's experiencing their first WarLight game.

Ok, I thought I had to be at +2 (ie 2-0, 4-2), so I thought at 1-2 I was needing three wins in a row to get it. I can handle this.

Does that mean that 1v1, FFA, and Team templates will have to compete for the 30 spots with each other, or does each setting have its own unique bank of 30 templates?

In what way are you planning to keep the votable templates managable?
i don't think anyone wants to dig through thousands of templates to put his votes and find the templates he likes. (i compare to the community singleplayer levels here)
Which means you need some sort of filtering submitted templates in some way.

Ok went 1-4 (all lost at picks), played all currently active players, so I can't move on to the next template.

Would it be ok for me playing on another account (not against myself) to see if I can get the necessary two wins, or do I have to wait for more active players?

Between this new feature and the change regarding coins, we really need some clarification regarding alternate account usage.

In theory there should be plenty enough players when it's opened up to the public, but right now with the limited pool, I might have to wait days before another matchup :/

Awesome, always wanted something like this since setting up games is quite a bit of effort when compared to other modern games.

Don't buckle either! Keep it newbie friendly to lure those new players in.

Finally got another match, which is likely also a loss off picks, unless a miracle happens. Oh the warlight gods must hate me.

Edit
The warlight gods hate Styx more, issue resolved :)

I started writing up a proposal for something like this a while ago, I feel it would be better if each player picked 5 templates out of 30 and have a CS:GO ban phase-esque situation until only 2 templates remain, 1 for each player.

i.e.
My Maps: 1,2,3,4,5
MoD's Maps: 3,5,6,7,8

I ban map 6
MoD bans maps 1 and 2
I ban maps 7 and 8
MoD bans map 4
Maps 3 and 5 remain

and

My Maps: 1,2,3,4,5
dabo1's Maps: 2,6,7,8,9

I ban map 6
dabo1 bans maps 1 and 3
I ban maps 7 and 8
dabo1 bans map 4
Maps 2, 5 and 9 remain - as both players selected map 2 and only 1 selected 5 and 9 each, maps 5 and 9 will be played.

if I have in all templates a rating of 10 how can I have then a global ration of 0(Per win +10Rank Per lose -10Rank and it effects both template rating and global rating in the same way)

Someone 3rd template?

Is anywhere a list of the templates for that?

Templates that are included(since I don't know how to copy template links in unity, I post-game ids)(they don't require unity):
-1: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=13981182
-2: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=13981314(2wins required)
-3: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=13981524(5wins required)

For wins every template counts

Timinator's screenshot is a broken image on my end (because of the Wi-Fi connection that I'm using)... so I can't see it and I've not got round to updating the standalone.
