    i was thinking of how annoying it is to change ur team name because you have to destroy the team make a new one and invite the members back. Maybe we could just have a little tab that says "change team name" or something.

    I support this. I've been playing on here (semi-actively) for a while, and while I just made a forum account finally, I've been wanting to make a suggestion similar to the one above for some time now.

    Yeah this is a great idea instead of destroying your team and re-creating it again.

    It can't be that hard of a task to put something like this in. Plus you can put like a cool down on it, do it like every two minutes you can change your team name.

    I like the idea of having the ability to rename teams with a cool down period. It's simple, straightforward and it won't be abused much due to the implementation of a cool down period. :)

    But is this really necessary, I know at some points it is good to be able to not destroy your team, and create a new due to the amount of people you can have on your team due to the amount of players on the server. Which can be annoying sometimes, but I don't see this as a priority over some new content for the server.

    It's just a suggestion, not a priority.

    Haha, yeah. But come to think about it, he may be right on this issue. Are there any major concerns that we have to address in this community or some new content that we have to prioritise before being able to take in suggestions like this?

    The priority list we have is an encrypted hieroglyphic mindmap that's deeply lodged in my head. (there is none)
    I generally code what I feel like is necessary/fun at the current time.

    About this, while yes, it's pretty easy to implement, we also gotta consider administrating it. If people can rapidly change names it can become confusing for admins. Adding magic delays isn't always the best way to solve things.

    Let's be honest though how many people are really going to do that. Just make it so that something pops up in console or chat that says something like:

    <player> has changed his team name from <previous team name> to <new team name>.

    "Let's be honest how many are going to do that" is always invalid. One day or another an admin is going to ask why they're allowed to change their names so often.

    If they change their name to something against the rules then we will deal with it just like anyone else. If they are going to do it then they will just make their team name something dumb to begin with. I really don't see your logic right now.
