UPDATE : this is a separate issue from the stuff below so I’ll just add it here.
If PlayerA sets up identical line-ups for both (split) normal and event support,
PlayerB will see this when checking your list:
DON’T USE IDENTICAL LINE-UPS.
This may have been there since day one but I only notice now that the support list normal and event lineups can be set using two different methods.
So far I thought you had to go to the correct lineup and then click either the normal or event button, left of “OK”. Once done, you can clearly see which set has been selected for each line-up.
Like we can see on this screen here:
(People still having trouble with this feature should focus their attention on everything inside the red rectangles)
So my event line-up was formerly set to 3 and I just went and changed it to 2 by clicking the “Event” button down there after swiping to the correct team.
Once we’re done setting those, we can simply save our configuration by clicking OK. The “close” button, on the other hand, won’t save anything. Instead, if you have made changes it will prompt something like this :
(I want to save the new settings, so I’ll just hit “Cancel” here and then use the “Ok” button bottom right)
“Last event is done, lemme update my event line-up to match the upcoming event offering”
I simply need go back and edit line-up number 2 and save (Thanks Cpt Obvious!)
BUT, what if I accidentally clicked on the “Event” button at this precise moment ?
Well, this happens:
And what does this do ? This switches selection mode to “always set last viewed line-up to this button”. Meaning that if I was to simply swipe right and do nothing else, this is what would come up next:
If I click “Ok” now, my event line-up will be set to 3. But my line-up 3 is mostly used for screenshot stuff so there’s little chance I’ll do that.
BUT, LB4 is now behind most of us and I feel like I can revert to my usual normal line-up by bringing back Banana to the lancer slot, so lemme just swipe to Set 1.
There, my favourite psychopath’s back up. And let’s bring back Semiramis to the assassin slot because why not ? All fine! I can save now by clicking Ok.
Notice anything ? Yes, I have successfully regressed to unsplit support (both using Set 1) without ever clicking the “Event” button on any other line-up than the event one.
I really have no idea if it’s always been like that because I never really touched those buttons again once they were set to 1 and 2 right after the feature came.
Of course, I only notice this after my latest… “purge” during which I booted a couple old timers who had somehow reverted to Normal+Event recently.
(And to anyone who’d want to tell me there’s no event right now so “normal+event” is fine, I’ll ask “Give me a single valid reason to even bother doing the clicks to set it back to that.”. Hint: there isn’t one.)
- Make sure both buttons include the word “Selected”
- Try to use the Close button instead of Ok if you have no change to save
Another thing I’ve noticed is that entering the Support section will apparently show you immediately your last saved “dynamic” line-up. Mine was always opening Set 3 at first and it’s only when I saved my set 2 to event through the “bad” method that it started going to n°2 each time after that.
