I suggest a simple application. To have an option, random map. You click on it, and the function will find a map randomly in every map shared. To have more interest, players who join the game don't see what is the map in the outline.

Very good idea Amloo!

Well, more options could be nice too:
- random race
- random deathmatch

Or random of default (featured) maps < vs > random of all shared maps.

Chris, how complicated would this be?

And it would be great of all shared maps.

It shouldn't be complicated because RS already have some random.

It's quite easy to select a map randomly from the 20 top new ones, or most played maps, or player favorites and private.
It's no easy to do it from all the shared maps or generate a new map randomly.

But I'm not so sure a random selection option is really a good idea. There are too many risks imho to land on a map that doesn't suit to the players taste or game configuration (according to the nb of players).
It's the game creator's responsability to select a good map, that's the way RS works from the start based on a human control.

My opinion is that if we want to introduce a random map selection, it must be from a human pre-validated map list, for instance : all time best maps (which some modos are currently working on) or favorites.

Hmm.. there are even some really crappy maps shared, so I guess you're right, Chris. Let's forget the total random mode.

Still a random option could be nice, also on favorites (sometimes it's so hard to decide ^^).

Additional: What about creating several lists of maps (like themes)?

I could imagine lists like these:
- duel deathmatches
- 6+ players deathmatches
- complex races
- quick races
- simple maps 
- original maps

Then players could chose the option to start a game on a random complex race for example.

Just an idea,
Dharo

here my opinion about total random :

1. Join the idea of an aleatory map already said in the past. Just for fun, one map, the best player will be able to adapt his play (can be unscored if its a problem).

2. When players don't have any idea of a good map, the random function can bring players to a new one that they don't know at all. Why not playing maps from unknowned players who play only when your not here ?

Too many settings of random map seems less interesting. I would propose a random option only to have a quick match without searching a long time a map in every list.

i guess it could be fun if we can also start with random place, mainly in team fight

Maybe you could have the following

1 random race (from standered list)

2 random battle ( from standered list)

3. random custom map (all players playing)
