Now, a lot of people is not satisfied with the new mod which only allows commanders after a vote. And while I was sitting thinking about this having waited for 15 min for a match to start I made up a solution, why not disable warmup?

If you disable warmup the NOOBS won't have any fun and will be very interested for the game to start aswell as everyone else. Don't know if its possible or if it will take a lot of work, but it will no doubt make sure there are no waiting time in matches.

Anyway it was just a thought and hope it hasn't been proposed before.
What you guys think?

interesting idea.

u mean, no running around during warm up?
Just purely chat and organise kinda? a bit like with the pugs?

could work, but would make the game incredibly boring if there are no good coms.

Yeah exactly, just a screen displaying the teams and the ability to vote like now.

Wouldn't get boring as a noob comm would be elected very fast if no-one good were around anyway. Playing with a noob comm is at least better than warmup....

hmm can't imagine you would spend a lot of time waiting....ppl would want to start right away and if a vote popped up they would press F1...the danger then would be that any noob would get elected. But maybe if you had to write the /elect command it would prevent the worst noobs from trying to get in the seat...

The real problem isn't really the warm-up period. It's the lack of good commanders who are willing to command.

I agree with Mats.

And even the good coms cant get into the com seat sometimes.

btw I enjoy the long warmups (its time to go on toilet/cook/homeworks/and stuff like this)
it would suck if the games would start directly or 10 seconds after the previous ones.
