There should be an option added so every player can disable being chosen as  the Captain in Combat Recon.

 

It should be in Options>Game.

 


Whenever Combat Recon match starts, there should be 3 50% transparent blue skull icons, presented for each of top 3 players, to be chosen as the Captain. When timer hits 10 seconds, a blue skull lights up, and when it does, the Captain is chosen. Game will already take into account your selected option, not to be chosen as the Captain at the beginning of the match.

If all 3 of the players with the best ELO rating have the option disabled, the player with the next best rating is chosen as Captain.

I support this idea.

 

Each team will only see 3 possible (50% blue transparent skulls) on their side.

Once it is clear, who is the Captain, both 50% transparent skulls are gone and only 1 blue skull remains lit up.

 

The option to be able to check, not be the Captain, under game settings is a great optional choice, which is disabled by default.

I suppose, if everyone on our team have this option checked, then the Matchmaker will ignore - nullify this option and it will randomly choose 1 of best 3 players, with the highest ELO rating.

 

Again, this option is not mandatory and it is disabled by default (if not checked)!

It is your choice, if you wish a chance to be the Captain or not.

Too bad we're probably never going to see it, just like the rest of the quality suggestions on this forum.

Who knows.

They should respond officially here and let us know, that is, if they do care.

New people, or even average casual players will complain. They also want to be captains, even if they don't do well. Most if not all high Elo players want to be captains, so essentially any newcomer won't ever be a captain.

 

I really loved the times where the best Elo was the captain in both teams. Great games with a lot of fun. But sadly, it is not fair for everyone else, so if you see that your captain will die soon, just push the enemy and pray to kill it before...

It's an optional choice!

It's not mandatory!

It's disabled by default!

It will nullify, if everyone have this option enabled!

I am just suggesting that all the people who don't want to be captains get an option to disable it.

"I really loved the times where the best Elo was the captain in both teams." -It still is this way the ELO rating is just hidden

Yes, Eviscerador, it still is based on ELO rating!

That's one of the reasons for this suggestion.

I'd suggest a slight tweak:

 

First, it only selects from the top 3 pilots.

 

Next, if all three pilots have captain mode disabled, it picks one of them at random anyway - SOMEONE has to be captain, after all!

Third, pilots in squads get a boost to their odds of being picked, since they are more likely to get coordinated support.

Well, game already detects at the start, who does or doesn't have such option checked/enabled.

With voting, there would be a time concern and what if someone would vote before someone else and if the rest of the players wouldn't vote.

This would complicate matters much more. We need to keep it simple.

 

I may write another suggestion, an incentive for won Combat Recon matches!

If your Captain has won the match, the whole team will get one Combat Recon looting spot and that spot will contain a special reward - a bundle of Monocrystals, like (2) or (3) max, and 4 for T4 and 5 for T5.

I mean, there must be some incentive, right?

If all 3 have it disabled the 4-th player with best rating is the captain.

I don't agree with you'r last sentence,if the squad is of Ace players and there are good players that aren't in squad players from the squad shouldn't get chosen as captain.

It is not. It is just random between all pilots. It was, but not any more.

I like the concept, but I don't think it should be toggle-able. There should definitely be 3 skulls to show who can be captain for each team, but you should not be able to opt-out of being cap.

You misunderstood. If you checked the option under game settings, then you will not even be a candiate, because the game will show you immediately 3 possible candidates and the real one will be chosen 10 seconds before the start, unless if everyone have the same choice.

You cannot change anything, like to vote for yourself or decline via toggle directly.

Here's what I understand:

 

You can check an option in game settings to remove yourself from captain candidacy. With this option on, you will be able to see the 3 possible candidates prior to the real one being chosen.

 

If I am misunderstanding any of this, please clarify

1.You can check an option in game settings if you never want to be captain.

2.You ill always see the 3 possible candidates,when timer hits 10 sec 1 of those translucent skulls lights up and that's the captain

3.You can not see candidates for enemy captain.

We are aware of this and equal suggestions, but we won't add such a feature in the near future due to technical limitations.

Technical limitations?

You only need to add one command line and some program work.

Is the game engine really so old and outdated?

There must be something you can do, to reach the same effect.

How about just this?This shouldn't take more than 5min to "write" it and put it in the game

There should be an option added so every player can disable being chosen as  the Captain in Combat Recon.

It should be in Options>Game.

It could still happen that all players in one team have it disabled or that in one team all strong players have it disabled, while in the other the weak players have it disabled.

Also it will be harder for MM to find equal captains, if there are less players to choose from.

1.If all players have it disabled Captain is chosen the way it's chosen right now.

2.From what Eviscerador said Captain is chosen randomly now so MM does not find equal captains now

 

If there is a will there is a way.

I have written all possible case scenarios.

Information about any possible conflict scenarios are all explained.
