If somebody already has your colour you have to choose an other (and only one seat is open). A lot of times when i want to choose my color somebody else comes in and the game starts without me. I think it is a good idea if you can choose a second colour, so when your colour is picked u automaticlly become your second choise so you are in the game. Of course your second colour will be chosen somethimes but you will miss a lot less games. I dont think you should choose a third colour.
I hope you guys like it. Let me know what you think about it. (ps. if the english isnt good, im sorry, im not english. I hope u all understand)

This has been mentioned somewhere before on the forums

i personally dont find it a problem and i dont always pick the same second colour. i pick one that complements my team or is completely different if FFA so there are no clashes

i have never experienced someone jumping in my spot while choosing colours but then again i dont play many real time games

Picking a color usually takes less than 5 seconds. Just have a secondary color in your head and there shouldn't be any problem.

Why would you be slow? Just have in your mind "If my color is taken, I pick green" or with any other color. Really, there is absolutely no reason why it should take over 5 seconds.

Ironheart, wanting to go with something new would be unattainable with this modification..

personally, I wish there was a way to change your color in games you've joined but haven't started, as always having the same color can be kind of monotonous..

might be better if you could set a fixed/default colour for your opponents / team mates. (I don't know if that's easy to code though or possible at all)

If my colour is blue, I could set:
opponent #1 = red
opponent #2 = yellow
opponent #3 = ivory
...

ally #1 = orange
ally #2 = green
etc...

I don't know how WL would record the game though, as everybody would have different settings

I can't go along with this idea, Chaos. My name wouldn't make sense if people see me as a different colour.

I totally understand you attacking me when we are enemies. It's a bit annoying when you attack me in team games, however.

Those who play lots of real-time games will agree with the OP, who has a good idea. In the half-second it takes to pick a color, someone else often fill the last open seat, and the game starts without you.

I agree, in RL games there has been countless times i lost a spot because i had to choose a second colour, while the person who filled my spot might have not.
