"Round" Countdown Timer

  1. 1. Should the developers implement a "Ready" button?

    • Yes - for PVE and Co-Op Modes
      3
    • Yes - for PVE Only
      0
    • No - Don't implement this feature
      0

My recommendation for the timer before a match and between rounds is to add a button for "Ready" for each pilot. If all four pilots click "Ready", the countdown immediately goes to zero and the match begins.

 

Thoughts? / Suggestions for improvement?

This is for PvE only? If so, there's another game that I play (tanks game) that are planning to do this:

 

Once everyone connects, count down instantly goes off and match starts. Support to this.

 

But I think a ready button here is more effective, since you have the option to choose which ship to play with.

This is for PvE only?...

Yes. Perhaps there would be a different use of it for PVP, but it's a different animal altogether. People spawn in throughout the match - people have an intentional wait time after dying before being able to respawn. Etc.

I agree. Additionally, as a transition from the present system, I think it would need to be a ready button. As it is now, people expect to have to wait 30 seconds and sometimes that's a quick run to the kitchen for a snack or ... something else you can do in thirty seconds. If it's a ready button, it still facilitates getting some string cheese or a cup of water cause you don't have to click it.

It was suggested since closed beta. Useful feature, but no dice till now.

Yep. I'm tracking the history of recommendations reaching the ears of developers in this game. But, just as I did back then, I think it still worth our while to offer the ideas again and again. After all, I love the game. I think it has a lot that makes it better than other team-based space shooters or I wouldn't be playing it. So, I want to do what I can to help it get better, whether it gets implemented sooner, much later, or never - still want to voice it.

Quite useful for PVE, but it won't work for PVP/Coop because the game uses that time to find more players and add them to the match.

I don't think the game finds more players to add in Co-op/vs AI mode. I never saw the game add more than what we started with.

Added a poll to this thread. Sorry for not having it in the beginning. Slipped my mind.

You are right. I tried coop today and i can't see the game adding more players in coop.
