The Player Draft that we do for Kayzr turned into a weekly phenomenon so we tried to automate a big piece of it: people who wanted to join had to contact a staff member on discord and then hope that they were put on the player list with correct stats.
To improve this, a Discord bot was created, with the help of Keepertj_ and Fusion. This bot gives the control to join the player draft to the players: you register yourself once with the bot, and then you can signup for the player draft each week. If you want to update your preferred role or mmr, you can update your information with the bot and that information will be used to create the teams.
Each Friday, the bot will run the algorithm to create teams, and show the teams in the channel.
So how do I use this bot?
Go to our Discord server (link is on the dashboard page of this site) and join the #kayzr-player-draft channel. You can use the following commands:
- to register yourself: !register
<captain (yes/no)> (ex. !register 2500 Yes 4 5 3 2 1 to play as 2500mmr as a captain with possible positions 4 5 3 2 1 in that order )
- to join this week's Player Draft: !join
- look at the players that signed up so far: !playerlist
- to get a list of all the commands: !help
This should help both staff and the players to make the Player Draft a little bit easier and more transparent. Hope to see you all there!
