Summary0001119: Game ends in TvT if team leader leaves
DescriptionI know this isn't a bug but can anything be done about it. I can see the point of having it in squadwar or if host has option set to only allow order by team leader. In a normal TvT game it is a pain in the rear.
TagsNo tags attached.

Is this happening in-mission or just if the player drops during mission load?

It does not happen in-mission just during briefing. Did notice one related problem. If all the players on one team drop then the host gets a message window with just "Decline" in it instead of a valid status message.

I don't actually plan on looking into this one myself, so perhaps someone else will decide to take it on (someone like karajorma ;)).

I'll probably end up looking at this one eventually. Till then, sticking it back in the unassigned pile.

This is pretty clear in multi_team.cpp => multi_team_handle_drop(). There may be some issues reassigning teams during the sync stages, plus the ui stuff for the captains during briefings, which is probably why this particular check exists. Otherwise I don't see anything particularly wrong with that code.

For briefings I think we would actually have to re-init the briefing UI for all players in order to make this work. I /might/ be possible if we set it up such that we can post a briefing event, while in a briefing, and reinit everything for everyone. It could be more trouble than it's worth though.

But trying to do anything during a sync state should be a no-go.
