Auto-selecting a team always puts you on Blue team

Self explanatory title. Since there is no working auto-team-balance plugin for FF, this can make it difficult to deal with, especially considering there is also no option in SM to switch someone to a different team. I'll usually end up switching to the team with the lowest amount of people, but I can only say that for myself.

Doesn't always do it for me and I always hit auto select. The majority of time I end up on blue, mainly if the teams are even (its about 70 percent of the time that I end up on blue) or if red has 1 extra.

Isn't the issue with this only when the map starts?

Nope, just tested it. It was 3v3, blue had 5 caps, red had 1 cap. It should put me on the Red team, but auto select still moves me to Blue.

I'm guessing it depends on numbers, nothing to do with score. If it is equal it will always go to blue, blue has more players? it'll go to red ect you get the idea

Yeah, it's based on player numbers only. If blue has 2 players and red has 1, auto-assign should put you on red. If they are even, I guess it just goes with the first team. Could make it solve ties using team scores...

I think that'd be better because it would make sense that if teams are even, but one team is PWNING the other team, that someone that joins the server would get put on the losing team so they could stand more of a chance. For cases like OvD, it would help in this respect as well.

I do like that idea. Many times I have joined a game, and the red were getting slaughtered, teams were even and I was put on the blue team. (I usually only ever hit auto select, unless the teams are even and I see more people on one team I want to hunt more)

Gets tickled by FF
 
It's done. Should be in beta whenever we next compile.

Just a question, Elmo. Did you fix just the auto select always goes to blue team, or did did you also fix the auto team balance in general? I think that's a MUST HAVE for the next version of FF.

What do you mean fix auto team balance in general? There is no auto team balance in general to fix, is there?

Implement, then. :D

Auto team balance would help pubs a great deal, or at least have a cvar admins can turn on/off.

Do many games have that functionality built-in? Isn't that mostly done by server plugins? Plus, it'd have to be controlled by Lua in some fashion for FF, because some gametypes require vastly different player-per-team ratios than others (Hunted, for example). Basically, someone should write a sweet autobalance Lua for use with sv_globalluascript.

I thought maybe CS 1.6 had it, but maybe it's just a default plugin with amx mod.

I checked the Sourcemod website and couldn't locate a plugin for Auto team balance except for one that forces you to hit Auto Assign at any time. Only person I know who makes SM plugins is striker. Does anyone know how to make something like this, but with LUA?

does lua have access to team scores? i'll try it if so

Yes. It's definitely possible with Lua. ApplyToPlayer() (to force change teams) can be a bit weird sometimes, though.

Here's how to get a team's score:
local team1id = Team.kBlue
local team1 = GetTeam(team1id)
local team1score = team1:GetScore()
