League Pause Mechanic

Post by Blitz » Sun Mar 13, 2016 7:19 pm

The pause mechanic is pretty awful/terrible. Please change it to you can pause HITTING THE PAUSE BUTTON (not typing PP when you have the puck...that's idiotic) whenever you have puck, all it takes is a team pressuring you and you cant pause 3v4 G_G.

ive never used the sc2 editor but is it even possible to change the pause button? aka make a timer with it. Im pretty sure the pp is only there because its a timer on the screen all nice and stuff instead of having the casters timing it.

From what I remember, in the editor you can't implement custom triggers on the pause break button in the editor. It's completely hard coded. But honestly we could just make it a custom button instead of typing it out.
However, In no way should we ever have the generic pause in any league games.

Hitting a button is fine and only being able to pause when your team has the puck is fine, but you should be able to pause when someone is pressuring you lol. Nobody is honorable and people play to win, if you have possesion you should be able to just hit the pause button to pause... and goalies should DEFINITELY be able to pause when they have the puck...

The in-game timer and restrictions based on pauses are definitely a good idea, but the implementation is too confusing. You shouldn't have to type in order to pause, and goalies should be able to pause if they are holding the puck.

Can't remember how it is actually implemented in game. But it definitely should allow anyone on the team to call for the pause, not just the captain or the puck holder.

This would remove the struggle of having to type pp, but what about people pressuring you? Shouldn't it just be at any point when you have possesion of the puck you can pause?

No. You need to be on your side of ice and have possession for at least 1 second.

Fair, but people can be near you and you should be able to pause.. no ? Silly that all a team has to do is pressure you to keep you from pausing on your own half.
