    Do you know these situation?
    You're sitting in Mumble/Teamspeak, with eleven friends.
    You want to play, but you can't decide which player is on which team?

    Then here is the solution!

    The Team Fortress 2 Team Generator is a simple application, which generates teams and maps for you. No more unfair teams*, no more medic-melee fights**.

    For just 0,00€ you will get this small programm, and for another 0,00€ you can download it twice and send it your friend.

    Okay i think I've told enough, download and a screen:

    I am not sure why McAfee detects it as a virus...

    Please test it out and tell me if there are bugs etc. I want to keep coding the programm and make it bigger and better.

    As I am not a super-über-pro programmer, this app doesn't look really good for now.
    Please leave a comment and help me to improve the programm.

    *Maybe they're still unfair, but you can't blame anybody for it now :D.
    **I don't really like those :s.

    AFAIK if the players join fast after each other, they will join this way:

    BLU
    RED
    BLU
    RED

    So, it's not really random, plus booth medics could be on one team etc...

    THen they could switch again? This doesnt make sense as long as its all random, if you added a field for the skill to choose, it could be a helpful program.

    it is random, no one knows if they;ll be put red or blue at the moment everyone chooses to go random since you all go spec then someone counts down and when they get to 0 you all hit random.

    And for medics you just allocate two medics who dont join spec but join the correct team. simple. You're really over complicating a problem that just doesnt exist :bored:

    I think the program could help for some PUGs where captains are never picked :p

    Doesn't the program still run the issue of people not believing what the person says it picked?

    The random button works fine, along with choosing 2 captains and going from their. Cool idea but seems like it would be more work to minimize to use this then just click random. I understand what you mean by the afkers or people who come late but all they have to do is click random when they join.

    No booj, there is no issue of trust, the server says down in the chat bit if a player "Joined team blu" or "was automatically assigned team blu" so its clear as day if someone didn't use random.

    I think he means when you use the programme, because one person has to run it, and tell the others which team they are.

    Only way to avoid this would be some online thing, like in php or so.

    I have an idea :D.

    What's with a Sourcemod plugin?
    Players can say: !med, !dem, etc like for PickUp's
    and after all made this, the plugin generates teams o:

    That... actually sounds ok. But Sourcemod generally isn't installed in all pug servers (albeit its not a hard thing to install, and I may just be incredibly wrong here, I wouldn't be surprised, I know it is in the tf2f pug servers.)
