Client checkbox for hiding locally blacklisted maps

0

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.

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
