    IDK if this has been suggested, and i havent found suggestions similar but, I was wondering if the ~mapowner function could, either along with showing the current time, or instead of it, have a countdown function. This function would show users the time left before a map can be claimed.

    This suggestion would not inherently fix the issue of afk map holders, but make the random ultimate casts less rage inducing imo and easier to keep track of potential new maps (e.g. after surfing the channels and finding 3 afkers u could be like, ch3 has 2min left, ch5 has 4min and ch8 has 1min, therefore i shall wait in ch8).



    - unrelated but could boss nx 1k/5k drops also be introduced?

    I personally think it's going to have the opposite effect. Holders will have an easier time making sure they don't miss the timeout.

    Also, from my limited understanding, the timer resets everytime mapowner holder kills a mob. So even if you were trying to snipe a map from someone and am waiting to do so, it wont work if you enter a channel, check that it has 3 mins left, then suddenly the holder kills a mob, therefore it resets back to 5min left. All your timers for each channel will be rendered useless.

    You have to remember to think about it from all perspectives. Yes, it will be helpful for people looking for a map, but it will also be alot easier for people holding the map. So what then will this actually solve if implemented?

    What I've seen people do to look for a map is "accidentally" cast the moment they enter in hopes that they can claim mapowner immediately. Alternatively, what I've found also works is to just ask if you can chill in that map and channel for a bit and wait and see if/when they are leaving. You can make a few friends this way and you never know they might just be tired and want a break for a while thus freeing the map up for you to use.

    Communication goes a long way.

    I think the requirement to hold mapowner should be changed from killing 1 monster to killing multiple over the course of several spawn waves.

    Wasn't this implemented already at some point, but then de-implemented after a while?

    Not expressing an opinion for or against this, but I don't see how it will make it easier for people to hold maps. People usually lose maps because they afk'd a little too long. If they are present and have the time to check the map timer, they also have the time to, and usually will, kill something anyways every time they check in.

    Yea it was changed for a bit, to show when the mapowner expired.

    However, it led to:
    1. Hoggers having an easier time to consistently retain owner
    2. Encouraging sniping, because now you know when the map will be free
