there is only one group ("
BW") for all players, so there's no need to build teams and you're done.
To play a game of Team-Go
has to define the teams playing with each other.
To do that, on the "game-players"-page the game-master has to follow the bottom-link "Change color
" or "Change color & handicap
" (appears after all players have joined). Teams can be built using the select-box in the "Set Group
"-column setting one of the following group-colors and submitting with "Save selected settings
- B = black
- W = white
- G1 = group #1
- G2 = group #2
- BW = black and white (only used for Zen-Go)
The group-colors 'G1
' and 'G2
' can be useful to setup a certain team of starting players for Team-Go without setting a particular color of black or white yet.
Setting up teams before finding other players
can be useful to give other users a chance to see against whom they have to play, or they can ask the game-master to be put into a specific team. Though it's optional to setup teams this early.
The game-master can change the teams at any time before the game is finally started
. However, before the game can start, the colors for all players must be set to either 'B
' or 'W
When all required players have joined the MP-game, the average ratings of the teams are shown as well as "Group ratings
", which can help in choosing a fair team structure with balanced strength distribution. If all players joined, it's also possible to choose the handicap stones and komi
for the MP-game.
