Client checkbox for hiding locally blacklisted maps

1

I can live with people playing astrogap but I would prefer not to see those lobbies. A checkbox like "show private games" and "show modded games" would be nice. Guess it would be enough to store the blacklist locally. And maybe some people would be up to creating one to copy. (I think @Resistance has a good list :P) Not sure how easy it would be to implement. I don't think it is too crazy. That feature would definitely improve my mood until TMM is realeased. 🙂

I support this option

That would be awesome if implemented. If not a checkbox, a filter perhaps for maps/number of players etc.

There should be more options in general, like filtering for game type or unit restrictions.

Me in support for this idea.

This sounds like a suggestion fairly simple to implement.

I have some questions around the details: Basically there are two options:
a) You hide each single map manually. (e.g. in the games tab right click on the game card -> blacklist this map) This can lead to quite some work over some time, given the almost infinite amount of astro and gap variations out there. Big advantage: No false positives.
b) You hide games by name using wildcards, e.g. astro, gap , dual. This requires less entries in your blacklist, but could lead to maps falling under a filter unintentionally.

I believe option a) is sufficient for now as there aren't that many different astro craters used commonly. The filter thing mentioned by others would definitely be a step up but also a lot more work to Implement I believe.

I Like and prefer option a) as well, tho give us a way to also put maps back from the blacklist.

Open an github issue https://github.com/FAForever/downlords-faf-client You can put money on it if you want to with IssueHunt https://issuehunt.io/r/FAForever/downlords-faf-client

I already opened an issue for it

Sounds like a useful addition, although the amount of lobbies open at anyone time waiting to be filled are so few, there's probably not much cost/benefit if the developers have to spend much more than a coffee break worth of time on it.

Well @Sheikah already started XD but yes since normally all games fit on one site filtering is not really too much of a benifit
