Voting to Open Seat: 7/14/2016 15:30:14

Too many games are ruined on the first turn when someone doesn't show up to game. i wish there was another option other than voting to end such as voting to open seat. Voting to open seat would remove a player and game would restart with 1 of 6 seats open. For both manual and automatic distribution, the game would go back to the waiting for players to join screen. If manual teams were picked it would go back to the same teams but open seat is for the player booted. For random teams, just the same. It seems overly simple and would help war light stay more active. Too many games ruined and having to start from scratch.. This would almost make voting to end obsolete since most would want to restart the game ASAP. But when a player gets booted mid game, then may be voting to end would have a use to have everyone agree to end the game entirely. It could be like if 4 players voted to open seat and one player votes to end. it would automatically default to vote to end. So it's an all or nothing vote, but the vote to open seat would be considered the same as voting to end if 1 person votes to end. So there wouldn't be arguments about which vote to have.

I think this is a usefull idea. But you will have to make a warlight uservoice for this.
then advertise it to get many votes. This way you might get Fizzer's attention.

Then hope that fizzer want's to implement that.

If I understand correctly, the game is starting over from scratch and not having a new player inherit the booted player's position. If that is the case, why not just invite all parties to a new game and simply VTE the current game. Would have the same outcome of what you are looking for here... everyone is back at the 'waiting for players' screen and the original game no longer counts for anything.

Well, yes, that is the current way around this and that is what everyone does. But it involves a lot of steps. It involves inviting them through posting new link in chats or by inviting them to the game which is even more steps. In my experience, if there was an option to just go back a step and reopen the seats, most people would choose to do that rather than copy and paste a hyperlink to a game that may or may not have all the same people. If there was 5 of 6 players back to the beginning immediately, this would psychologically make people more inclined to vote to open because they are assured everyone is on board to restart and the game is only 1 player away. Basically, this is a simplification of a common situation that could be reduced to a vote.
