Re: H4 join in progress

In Response To: Re: H4 join in progress (Avateur)

: Actually I was just suggested something positive for once. The simple fact is
: that even if you go in with a party, internet connections drop and random
: things happen that might make it really beneficial to get someone in there
: to help you out, or at least an extra DMR/BR to delay or wound some
: people. When I say one extreme to another, I feel like before you could
: join in progress regardless of time left, score, or anything. There's a
: slot open? You're in. Now it's more like, well, half way is done, so let's
: close it up even if it's close and even if there's plenty of time left.

: I feel like join in progress was poorly implemented from the start, mostly
: because of what you described where you'd get dropped into a game where
: you're being crushed or where it's about to end and there's no chance of
: coming back. I was more proposing something that could detect that maybe
: the game has reached a half way point AND is within a kill or two, a
: single flag cap, or completely tied. I'm thinking more on a CTF level
: about how disappointing it could be to have the game tied up, have the
: match go on for another 5 minutes, and maybe one or two of your buddies
: (or randoms) dropped. You may end up losing just based on numbers. Sad
: time. But oh well, hopefully this newer way works out.

Haven't read the whole thing so maybe this was said, but what if you were about to join and just like booting someone, you are presented a screen of the score and you can press A to join the game or B to continue searching? Then if it looks hopeless but that's your thing, you can join and try to make a difference or you could wait for a better game.
