A button to queue 10 games at once or a quick deploy button

Post#1 » 13 Oct 2017, 22:39

I request a button to queue 10 games at once because currently queuing a single game takes 5 to 10 seconds. I never change my AI or my bot formation and the step to set this up every time is a complete waste of time for me. Currently queuing 10 games takes over a minute.

Just name it "Rapid depoly 10 games" or "Quick deploy 10 games". You can even make a slider to choose how many games to deploy or whatever with the default on 10.

I have all maps set up with .TeamA and .TeamB so I can change the AI for every map at once whenever I want. So can I just get a buttom to queue 10 random maps with the current AI setups? This would greatly increase my activity in the game.

Or maybe make a button to quick deploy one game without setting anything up. I can just press that button 10 times.

Imo, there could potentially be 2 possible problems for this request
1. I know that during 6.1 and 7.x I abused a trick that allowed me to successfully request a large number of games (sometimes around 15 if I was lucky) all at once. One of the main drawbacks though is that there is a large number of lag between requesting and verifying that response was sent back, and you are adding even more lag on top of that (to send a layout and get a response back)
2. Since there currently is no true headless computation of a match yet (rewinding is literally starting over and going in fast forward without rendering, which is NOT a true headless computation), all matches still have to be verified by a player watching them. There were some days back when I start the day with 30 unseen matches, and with that on top of school, on top of trying to figure out why I lost some matches, it would take me the whole day just to watch them all. Even with no distractions on fast forward, if we assume that all marches are 5 minutes each (without accounting for lag), 10 matches is still 25 minutes long of watch (add in any development time, and it just takes forever)

1. is solvable server side.

2. is solvable by not using the feature.

"Oh man, there is legitimately something to consider as a legit problem or limitation, I guess we should still add it in and tell people not to use it instead of, you know, considering it."

In the average case I disagree. Sometimes I miss further informations about a card to get what it is about.

Fixes break an AI more than bugs do. :ugeek:
