Operation attacks without hopping
« on: Aug 30, 2018, 07:00 AM »
A TF who is about to start an operation, but still has player spots open, can broadcast a signal to call for aid. Players who like to do extra operation attacks can subscribe to this feature in the menu. When a TF sends a call for help, the player receives an invite in their BB mailbox. If the player accepts, the TF can accept/decline (they see the players rating *). Upon acceptance, the TF gets filled virtually with these helper players and can start the op when they wish.

Maybe needs some time limits or other constraints so TF leaderboard competition stays fair.

* TF can rate the helpers attack with review stars so helper players who often like to mess up their attack on purpose can be identified/ignored.

You mean on the forum or in game?

Steps would definitely have to be taken to avoid collusion. Certain teams or families might get more willing helpers than others. Or conversely, a helper might be in a position where a rival LB team needs help and what then? Who decides? Do you want to help your rival, or sabotage them with a bad hit? Or could it be an anonymous matching service maybe?

Yeah good point, definitively wanna avoid sabotage with rival TFs. But doesn't this happen in the current situation with hoppers too? Or is it being managed somehow?

Basic idea is to make it easier to do operation hits for other TFs. So without the hassle of having to leave/join TFs all the time.

Its a great idea.

I think the TF LB players would be wary of this feature for all the reasons mention above, but tempted none the less.
