What is /equalize?

I've been running some development playtests on the PBE recently. Something I noticed is that while a lot of the test games start out really solidly, they occasionally snowball into stompfests.

This isn't particularly helpful for testing new features, so I am adding the /equalize command to let players on the PBE "catch up" the struggling team's gold and XP to their current values. This means if you're having a good match, but lose a couple key teamfights, you can help us out by using /equalize.

Quote:

/equalize is now enabled on the PBE right now and will grant gold and XP to the losing team.


I'll let you guys know when I've worked all of the kinks out of the /equalize system and you can help us make our tests even better.

p.s. I've noticed a few of you guys throw around the idea of allowing it in custom games on live. That's not a bad idea... but it needs a lot more work first.

this sounds great!!!

I hope you can implement it in versions of ARAM, because I don't like one sided battles in that D:<

Interesting. I hope it doesn't turn into a way to start a game, feed like hell with your team then "equalize" to gain quick lvls/gold. Not that it really matters honestly (and that might be an efficient way to simply get to full build quick to test certain things) but I wouldn't put anything past pointless griefers in PBE.

At minimum, I believe that the Custom Games on Live should recieve Equalize in the near future. This is a great feature for PBE matches, great work.

it be great if we could have an infinite gold mode or almost like the dummy's from WoW so we could see how much we could tank or how much DPS we could dish out, optimum way of using abilities etc without going through a full game

Upgrade your eu server and then think for new features.

This is actually a pretty solid idea, but would both teams be able to initiate it? Would all 10 players vote on it?

Sometimes it may require the losing team to initiate the vote to equalize because the winning team may not know how truly ahead they are.

Do both teams need to agree?
