After seeing how easily a couple of morons can ruin the online experience of +60 players, I came to these suggestions in the vote system for kicking teamkillers and electing admins :
All this already exists in many other games (Quake and... BF)
- first give us an indicator of the remaining required votes to kick or elect someone !!!
Something like "There are X votes of Y required to kick/elect PLAYER"
And also an indicator to tell us if vote is disabled on this server.
- second make the vote easier - especially the kick one - with a one-button-vote, something like "Press 1/F1/PgUp to vote YES or press 2/F2/PgDown to vote NO"
With some rules such as every player can call for a (kick) vote every X minutes to prevent abuse, and also a timeout.
- - you can also make the vote smarter to go further than any other game : TKer is kicked if (50% of total players) OR (60% of his team) vote YES
Because usually the opposing team "forgots" to vote.
I am sure that because of the lack of feedback returned by the console after a vote many players just dont bother to participate cuz they think it's useless/not working.
More ideas :
- show an indicator on the server browser screen next to servers with present admin. Something like (A) or ADMIN near their name.
