Try out the /swap command on the new server.

When a game is created, before it starts the creator can swap colors of players.

/swap r b

will swap red and blue, for example.

The colors are:

r red
b blue
y yellow
c cyan

Any players swapped will need to press ready again. This is so the player can agree to the swap before the game begins.

Also, try the new /kick command!

Scott

It would be a nice enhancement if you could define colors not just swap colors. Lets say theres a 2-4 player game hosted by player1. Player1 is blue, player2 is red, and player3 is yellow. There is no way for someone to become cyan without a 4th player joining and player1 swapping.
Some players don't like to be swapped, and won't play the game if they get swapped. So when I play 2v2 with my friends, we try to get on the same team before the other players join, to avoid arguments about colors. If I host, my friend joins, and we aren't put on the same team, we have to swap after the other players join. About 30%-40% of the time, someone gets upset about the swap and won't ready up after the swap. Then I gotta cancel and remake. Sometimes my friend will join and leave a bunch of times (before someone joins and get's the color he/she wants) until the server makes him/her the color they want. That makes a good deal of unwanted grey spam.

What I'm saying is, it would be useful if you could 'swap' without another players having the color you're swapping someone to. Although, I'm not sure if that could be done without allowing people to swap to AI colors (like someone might try to swap to cyan in a co op where AI is cyan).

I don't think there's an official topic. There might be a post somewhere on the forums where one of the players explain it.

I think it's a command scott added as a joke.

No, I think he meant "another news". A minute before he made that post he made a post on this topic saying that the topic should be in news.

You should make it so all players have to press ready again after a swap, not just the two players swapped.

Here's why:
Lets say I'm in the "waiting for players to join" screen for a 2vs2 game. It's BRvsYC. Right now I'm blue, player2 is yellow, player3 is red, and player4 is cyan. Player3 is the hoster. All colors are ready. Player2 swaps yellow and red (player2 and player3 are swapped). Only player3 and player2 have to press ready again (actually, player3 doesn't need to because he's the hoster). Player3 can now start the game. The issue is, player4 is now teamed with a different player, and he might not agree with that. But since player4 wasn't swapped, he wasn't un-readyed. Thus, the game can start without his agreement.

That's why I think that when /swap is used, all players should be un-readyed and have to press ready again, so that everyone can agree to the setup and teams.
