Captain's Mode 3.0
There were added time to pick maps for the teams: 450 seconds (7.30 minutes) for each team.
Referee can stop the timer for any team in case of the connection loss of the team captain.
There were added notification for the captains. Now if your opponent had already chosen 2 maps from one class, script won’t let you to ban map from this class because your ban will be useless.
Notification: Team is allowed to pick only 2 maps from one class.
From now on in the case when two teams write /rdy in the chat, map will start automatically, earlier referee was that guy who started the match.
Scoreboard is a little bit modified and now it is placed in the bottom right comer, also u can change the size of this table by your own self (lctrl+u)
Also there were added logotypes in the scoreboard for each race team in MTA.
Team selection button (F2) was changed and now there is no error, when player isn’t able to join the team.
Draft control panel is now possible to open with the combination of buttons lctrl+j.
New soundtrack was added for the draft stage.
There were deleted the voice, which was announcing the doings of team captains during the draft stage. Unfortunately, google voice doesn’t wanna help to create gaming atmosphere and we don’t have replacement for it.
New maps for each class.
Like last year, I have tried to choose maps for each team, for example, in the list there are maps that have been added specifically for CoDEx. This year the total number of maps is 101, on the Captain's Cup in 2015 in the stage of draft there were picked and banned 81 maps, but National Cup 2015 was also held by Captains Mode, where the team took the maps that were not used in the Captain's Cup in 2015, so I think that 101 maps - a well-balanced solution, also this year the last slot in the tournament will be played in public qualifications
From classic category were deleted such maps as Admiral Race, IyonUKs Evil Time Trial 3, LSI, Airport Speedway – Season 4.
They were replaced with following maps: High Noon.
Maps in each class are sorted out according to the alphabet.
All about time innovation in the script.
Captain's Cup - a unique event with a unique and interesting scenarios for the match, it divides the game into two stages, the first stage - the stage of draft, the second stage - the gameplay.
I think that the draft stage is the most important match process, because here the captains and teams compete with each other separately, it is like a little game of chess, and the stage of the pick depends on a lot, you need to think what maps you can ban against each opponent, wherein take into account the huge number of factors: the existence of the players in your roster for certain map, the existence of players in the opponent's team for this map. You can pick your map specifically for strong players, or, contrariwise, for players who know how to play a short list of maps. You can choose maps from one subclass especially against a team that plays really bad this subclass. In short, captain's mode makes a lot of captains think, this year time will harry up you. but is true that the addition of timer will make this tournament mor difficult?
Each team now has totally 450 seconds or 15 minutes on the draft stage. And even if we consider the fact that your opponent can ban and pick all the maps in 3 minutes, you still have your 7:30 + time of your opponent, do not waste your opponent’s time, think over your next selection during this time. The most important thing for the captain - be careful, remember! Draft stage takes place in such order that your team have to make 2 selections in a row, for example, the second team picks map №2, and immediately bans map №3, and the first team picks map №4 and bans map №5, the timer of your team in these moments will not stop, so read the chat that you won’t miss a moment of your ban / pick.
Attention! If your time runs out, and you do not have time to pick map or ban it, all the following maps will be automatically selected in random order! Closing the topic of this innovation, if you think that the addition of the time is a bad idea, remember the draft stage in the final match in the National Cup 2015 (Germany - Poland), which lasted 36 minutes.
