While I am at it, I am going to improve some things in the main files. Heres what my ideas are to put into 1.4.0 (nothing massive).
Redoing the challenge/match system.
Right now 1 table is for matches and challenges but I would like to expand that. 1 table for challenges and 1 table for matches. The challenges table will have the challenger, the challengee, challenge post date (when challenge was made), challenge details (any additional info), challenge finder time**. The matches table will have the challenger, the challengee, match finish time, winner, looser, temporary winner score and temporary looser score.
**Heres the cool part, you DONT have to challenge a clan, you can select "Show in match finder" and select a time a time from 5-60 mins, so you can just select "Show in match finder" and click 10 mins. Your challenge will show up in the match finder saying your looking for a match within the next 10 mins, someone can challenge you by clicking a link
If you issue a challenge to a clan and put it in the match finder, it will appear in the other clans "Mange Challenges" page. They can see the clan (with link to their clan profile), the challenge details and the challenge post date. They can accept or decline. If they accept, the challenge will be deleted and moved into the matches table.
When reporting a match, winner and looser must report correctly before their temporary scores will be added to their clan profile. This ensures no one will skip off the reporting.
This is a new page in the Clan CP. If you accept a match with a clan, you can go to the matchcomm page. It will list the clans you have accepted challenges from and next to their name it will show any unread messages. Example:
"Joe Clan (Unread: 3)
The Killers (Unread: 1)
ANother Clan (Unread: 0)"
You can click the clan name, it will show messages your clan and the other have been sending (looks just like a chat
), at the bottom you can post a message for like a new match time or a new map change or something. Sweet, eh?
As mentioned above, this is a section in the Clan CP which will allow you to select a time between 5-60 mins if your looking for a match, if you enter 15 mins, it will look for all clans wanting a match within the next 15 mins and you can select "Challenge this Clan" and it will challenge them for you.
The challenge will appear in the clan's "Manage Challenges" where they can accept or decline.
These are the basic ideas I have for the next version, some major but its worth it and WILL take time to write. Any other ideas you can pass along
but it sounds good eh?
