team games, player selection

i remember we did this when we 1st started playing team games with master, paars, golum, neo et all in late 2007, early 2008. the 2 strongest players are captains, 1 of them is normally the host, they pick players in turn. normally the 1st captain picks 1, the other 2, and the 1st again 1. to compensate for position advantage it's possible that the captain of the handicapped team picks 1st and then 1-1-1. this can be agreed on by the captains on a per-game basis, if the map is balanced then 1-2-1, if not so, then 1-1-1-1. it would prevent a lot of games from being ruined, and teams would also be more balanced. games have to be password protected though, to prevent people from entering before they're chosen into it.

only few maps are balanced like ulster-saxony-lithuania vs grenada-roma/corsica-nicea. hanover and/or muscovy already ruin the balance and gives the north disandvantage. thats why i mainly pick north.
