    @Epic/DE please have a look

    Epic/DE, how about flirting a little with us playing clanmatches?
    God knows the clanside could use a boost (all the old Leagues in Europe are dead atm)

    A feature i would love to see is a way to setup a game in advance.

    Lets say Team Red is playing Team Blue in ClanBase.
    The setup should cover,

    A MatchName/Subject (Red vs Blue in ClanBase ID:123456789) that also should show up in the Score screenshot along with date and time(used for matchreports).

    Enter the teams name (Red Devils, Blue Demons)

    Enter the Clan tags ([Red], -=Blue=-)
    When the players with the right tags enter the server they should be forced to the right team/color.


    Enter the Maplist/order
    #1 CTF-Orbital2
    #2 CTF-Geothermal


    All this should be saveable into a VOTEABLE (file)name.
    So that when all the players are on the server someone can start a vote on this setup.


    When the vote has passed all the players automatically pops into their right spots and the warmup starts.
    CTF-Orbital2 is played and after that a second warmup(or click ready to skip) before CTF-Geothermal.





    Food for thought,
    These MatchSetupFiles maybe could be sent between the two clans as a sort of negotiation and when its decided what server to be played at both clans have the MatchSetupFile.

    These MatchSetupFiles can be expanded upon too.
    One could standardize them (maybe making a small executable) that compiles them with Clantags ClanNames,Logos for both Flags and scoretables,IRC channels, Clanwebsites etc.

    But i guess theres a risk for cheats and exploits when starting with BMPs and stuff?

    I guess its way to late but i just had to get this out of my head.

    Nice idea. I think forcing team-colours should be based on a password though, like in the LeagueAS mutator, ie; have a seperate password for red and blue teams, and the players get put on the appropriate team depending on which password they enter.

      Nice idea

      another thing i would like is the date and time on the f1 scoreboard
      before UT2003 got released apparently Epic are thinking about something that you are talking about, and having custom clan crests as well

        This really should have been in UT2k3 - heck even mechwarrior 4 has this in, and look how old that is

                    and use * for clan tags aswell because some of us have clantags around our names

                        Another solution could be for Pakman to add something like this in TTM?

                        Whats your thoughts about this Pakman?

                          I think its better to get as much as we can with the game, and not through 3rd party add-ons as a lot of servers wont run them.
