Gender specific random skin.

Postby DaniTheHero » Sat Aug 19, 2017 4:27 am

This suggestion might seem odd to some, but it does feel like something that is worth implementing.

There's an option to pick "random skin" to have an random skin from your list picked for use every match, extra useful for the times you're playing with friends and don't want to be targeted N1 because they know who you are thanks to a skin you always use, or simply if you feel like switching it up and too lazy to change before every single match.

The thing is, that i, and i'm sure quite a few other people, wouldn't like to use an skin of the opposite gender, therefore an easy solution would just have 2 extra Random skins options - Random Male / Random Female.

Pretty sure it's also easy to design, as the devs can just add a sub-category to each skin - Male / Female.
And then attach Random Male/Female with the skins from that said category.

I think just allowing you to pick which gender the game classifies you as without it being bound to your skin would be best. This and allowing you to pick which cosmetics are selected when choosing random would basically do what you want, but allowing your suggestion as an option too wouldn't hurt to make it quick and easier.

That works too, as i could just manually pick male only skins if i wanted to, or even exclude the ones i don't like.

I just offered my idea first as it felt like it would be easier to implement.

Did you just assume my gender?

Let's not start trolling in the thread, as it gets similar topics closed.

To be honest it's ludicrous they didn't implement a Random Male / Random Female option yet. They either didn't playtest the Random skin option, don't play their own game or they don't care about obvious things like this that should be considered bugs.

Exactly, it's more than normal that some people wouldn't like to play as a character from the opposite gender.

Seems more nitpicky than needed, but it'll be nice to have. But there's several other things devs should be working on first~

Just because they may be "more important" changes to be made, doesn't change the fact that minor ones like this suggestion are so simple and easy to add into the game, and have no negative outcome other than enhancing the game experience for quite a few people.

Literally adding a line of code that that has a gender category for each skin, and then classifying male/female to each of these skins.
And then adding the Random Male/Female option to the shop ( Just like the'd add any other skin), finishing with a line of code : - (example simplified)
If( "Random male)
{
Use random skins from male sub cateogry
}
Else - As in Random female
{
Use random skins from female sub category.
}

This would take less than an hour for any single one of their programmers.

As i stated in the previous comment, adding this feature would be ridiculously simple for even a single dev had they actually cared enough to implement it..

They wouldn't have to add gender categories to skins - that's already done in-game. Note that different skins get different pronouns in the game text.

Personally, I'm not too bothered about playing a skin of the opposite gender, but it'd be nice to have anyway so that you can pick a name that matches somewhat. It's weird when you have random skin and pick a name like "Steve" and it's a female skin (or vice versa).

Something here that would satisfy a lot of the forum community is to give us the option to have a list of skins that can appear under "Random Skin", with some buttons like "Add all", "Add all male", "Add all female".

That is a better version of what i'm proposing, but i proposed my idea first a it's just simpler to implement.
