Right, so I've been thinking about how we can do bigger battles. If we have a Brigade, that's about 15 people, which would be roughly 150 bots. Say 2 brigades, or even 3 brigades, are fighting against another 2 or 3 brigades - That's 600 to 900 bots for one battle. Obviously, that'd crash a server. After racking my brains for a bit, I think I've figured out how best to do this. This could even be a potential way of doing allied battles (Country Y + X vs Country Z)
Say there will be 3 brigades on each team for a battle. We get the 2 highest ranked officers who will be participating together, and give them a form, similar to the one below.
They will then each fill out which brigades/regiments/companies will be fighting on which flank. This will result in 3 massively smaller battles that *shouldn't* crash people out. At the end, we can have the regiments or companies that haven't been killed off participating in one final battle to determine the victor. These 3 matches could be played simultaneously (if we get enough servers) or one after the other.
I'll add this to the beginning post in case people miss it, but yeah, what do you guys reckon?
