      Also, there are stats for go base on the tw website, so the data's there to see who wins/loses, gets crushed/crushes.

        The major issue is when it's active, trolls and newbies do !cap and add horribly unbalanced lines and kill the momentum and waste 15 minutes. That 30 seconds would give veterans a chance to cap to prevent this. If no one on the whitelist does !cap, then anyone should be able to claim and get it going.

        Famous last words, but seems foolproof!

        List the trolls and noobies destroying ?go base. I'd love to see it. Why don't we start there before some sweeping exclusion takes place. You have not called out one player who has caused an issue in ?go base besides using generalizations.

          ROFL my name isn't on that list???????????? Why...? look at my games I've capped and tell me I don't deserve to be on it. I'm totally against this. In my defense I've been a captain for 15 years of a squad and staff for 10 years and a TWDT captain and a TSL host yet I'm not on rabs list??? I'm calling BS. I'm also TWDT power champion last year in twdtb. Explain why I'm not on the list?????

              And what exactly upsets you so much with my foundation I laid that needs to be done in TWL thread or the opposition to this idea in this thread? It is a strength that I show to oppose foolish exclusionary ideas like this. Sorry I cursed if that is why you decided to quote me and then infer I wouldn't be up to the task but the ridiculous nature of this thread got me riled up. If you have something of substance to debate me on do so but it seems that is not your goal in your post.

                  I love these vague references with superiority inferences on opinions directed towards ME personally and not the issue I am confronting here in this thread. It is a bad idea and I am sticking with it. I think players being excluded from capping base (if this happens) have a right to feel disenfranchised by the zone in a PUBLIC arena. Fair play to be a cap is a RIGHT of all players in these public duel arenas. To expect the community being excluded to NOT complain shows short sightedness on anyone who thinks me fighting this idea is a bad idea. Most people have zero clue this is being discussed. All arena javduels and wbduels and base games can vary in the strength by line picked in games. To act as base is special and apart from this arena public list is just a partial personally charged judgement. It winds up overlooking the basic idea and conduct we have ALWAYS allowed. You do /!cap or in old days u yelled cap and the first ones get it. The cap has every right to add who they wish. Be it even or not. I do NOT see the evidence ?go base has been being ruined. Show me some examples of "ruined" games that hold the weight to pass a sweeping rule excluding many players. I have not been seeing this at all and hearing a claim that it has been is outrageous.

                    Are you guys trying to kill your league? If new players (returning players/players from other zones/people who were only pub players) can't even practice or get into league by ?go base, how will they ever join a squad? or participate in a draft league in the future? The only practice they can get after would be by playing pub where jav, weasel, levi, warbird, lancaster, are not even used in league. I'm with Jesster on this call, basically every point jesster makes is valid and worth considering.

                    That being said hockey zone has scrim and pub in the same arena. Two bases on one map; pub anyone can join, and scrim is captains (but its a free captainship anyone can captain). Also since all players are basically rated in draft league? then why not have the bot itself recommend to captains who to choose based on their rating? qan Requires extensive coding, but the potential there is that a newish captain would be recommended to recruit Jesster because he's rated an 8 or something for the captains next pick. The bot would message the player during their picks with recommendations in order. You could do recommendations based on base stats too, since i'm sure stats are recorded.

                    I know all my solutions require coding, but that's also what makes them actual solutions in a way, and not bandages or a messing up of the system entirely by extreme measures like exclusion/bans. In that sense, TW needs coders...

                    The problem with excluding people from captain, is that you never recruit those people to play either. You as a captain who knows best would be recruiting for your base team the best players to win... not the new guy from pub. So not only can this guy not play, but he can't even captain as a means to play. And because he can't play in the first place, that's why he's forced to try and captain before even having experience. It's a cycle. You need a system that actually recommends 6 starters and 2 less experienced players for every game. This way it's balanced but there are still good players, and inexperienced players get to play.

                    When you have that! then you can make the claim:
                    1. "WELL new players always 100% of the time have a chance to play in our system"
                    2. "So now we can require them to have certain hours of game-time before they actually captain".

                    You currently can't make that first statement at all, so you can't follow through with the second statement.

                      Jess and Falco have fair points, but the OP has a fair point too - base is extra sensitive to subpar caps.

                      To solve this keep ?go base as is, but have another base bot in ?go mythrandir (without the # for visibility purposes) with the approved cap list mode enabled.

                        I just fail to see the games being any worse than they ever have there. Lots of 14:45 to 15:00 games happening when I play it. I don't see any serious issue prompting this idea. Is there is some troll ruining games?? If so who is it? Then deal with that accordingly.

                              Please remind yourself it is just a 30 second time non listed players can't !cap in ?go base. They can still get the captain position after the times has run out and they can always be added. The issue of not being added due to caps picking the same lineup shouldn't is affected much with this implementation in my opinion. I'm not really up to speed with the current happenings in that arena for quite a while but I have seen the jokers snatch the cap spot on a number of occasions. For this to work and not affect non listed players too much I would suggest to start the 30 second timer as soon as the arena message goes out, which should be the earliest time for players to get the captain spot. This way the space is there for experienced captains to get their spot before the rest gets a chance. If the listed players fail to gain the captain spot in the allotted time it should be fair game.

                              Most of the presumptions are made mostly on the few ?go base games I played when the arena wasn't exactly crowded, so please correct me if the situation is completely different from a game where 10+ players are forced to bench due to team size constraints. In less crowded games it wasn't unlikely to have minutes after a game ended where no one claimed the captain spot.

                              The biggest losers of this change will probably be the trolls (which is why the change is made in the first place) to deliberately sabotage the ?go base game and the lineups, the inexperienced captains who might want to play a couple more games before claiming !cap, and the players who know what they are doing but aren't listed (yet). This list only takes the !cap claim into consideration and not the effects allowing listed players to make their lineup, which is like I stated earlier not something the is affected much by this change.

                              Maybe we could come up with an easy and reliable way of updating the list, what are the criteria we look for, and how can inexperienced players overcome not getting picked or get !cap?

                                Who are the jokers biet? I just don't see them in ?go base. Deal with them on a case by case basis if they are truly trolling a game and not doing their cap job. 30 secs is a complete shut out of a huge amount of non troll players during active base games who can do a fine job. This will essentially give them zero chances to be caps when base is active.. Caps spots are always taken in less than 10 seconds when base is active. Let's not kid ourselves.. the sweeping powers this will give a select few when it comes to ?go base is drastic.

                                edit > How about make a list of players who cause issues being caps after instances arise with them. That I could perhaps stand by.
