Thought I'd post this here since someone in the game's public shout box was asking how they could command in the practice mode.
Currently it doesn't seem there's any way to elect yourself in the tutorial mode (to be clear, I'm referring to the Practice -> Skirmish Map)
With bots on the team, electing yourself commander will always fail, since the bots cannot vote! If this was fixed it would be a good starting point for new (and old
) players to learn the commanding role, better than an empty serverŠ, since there's bots already active in the game.
It's no wonder commanders are in short supply, Savage is notorious for being difficult for new players so it's important that we provide as many resources as possible to help out those that are willing to learn!
