Little update on this.

The Database itself didn't need a lot of change, that was done on about 15 minutes. There's just way more work to be done on the different pages that are connected to the Battles. I have to re-write, at least some code, on every page that has to do with Battles.
I need at least a few hours in a row to work on it, and I just did not have the time for it really. There were some bad updates recently, losing data, that also put me down a bit to do another big update. The data loss really bothered me a lot.

The Battle Royale feature is still one of my top priorities, and I personally want to use it, but it just takes more time than I realised before.
Hope you are still entertained with the other features of the Superhero Database till BR is live.

Again, sorry it is taking so long.

I will never 100% promise anything unless it's a few minutes works.There will always be conditions.
I want it live as fast as possible, but stuff comes up. Like the data loss thing. That takes time and energy. I felt really crappy after that. I didn't want to hurry things after that loss.
It will be up when its 100% done.

@Galactus I was wondering if it's possible if you could add the Battle Royale feature for now and then along the way add things to it whenever you're done with them as time goes by. This is just an idea.

No, that's not an option. Battle Royal, technically, uses the same (new) code as the 1 vs 1 battles. If I leave out the Variations for instance, the 1vs1 Battles also don't have that option.

It's been on the to-do list for so long now, those few extra days won't really matter anymore.

Obviously yes. You can't put 10,000 teams in a battle. I haven't decided what the exact limit will be yet.

@Tigerking2020 Give me a drawing/sketch on what that would look like on a webpage, including vote buttons, vote count, percentage, character name, class, profile image, etc. And I'll think about it.

@Galactus While I don't have a sketch yet, a suggestion for that is that once it reaches 16, you have a "read more" button that allows you to scroll down until you find a winner.

@MS643262 Why not just scroll without the button? People will either not notice the button or ignore it, and vote for any of the first 16 teams.
The only way I see 100 (or any other large amount) maybe work, is by presenting it as a list/table. Something like how your uStat list is presented. This will only work for 1 member teams, though.

@Galactus I do have myself a concept for battle royales (individual characters but not teams)
(Ignore the quality lol)
If you add a vote button on top of every individual icon as well as a power stats icon (instead of what's on here), that's what I can see with this feature.

@MS643262 And what about the names of each character? The version and verse of each character? The vote results (votes and percentage)?

@MS643262 Made a quick test with what you described. Without any character information, and with minimal button sizes for mobile. This is on a iPhone 8 Plus (1080x1920px @3x scale factor).
There are 20 characters visible, meaning you have to scroll another 4x this height to see all the characters in a 100 character BR. I think that's too much.

@Galactus 100 maybe a bit much, considering 50 or 64 could be a potential.
This is a rough sketch including the things you said I forgot

@MS643262 The text is too small, yet it doesn't even fit the width of the block. And you took the almost shortest character name too. Try this with "Negasonic Teenage Warhead".
It's just not going to work this way.

@Galactus I'd suggest this but more largely spaced, especially between (Wanda) and (Pre-Wandavision), and removing 33K as that would be a part of power stats button (which should be larger than shown)

@MS643262 Scale it down to actual size, and you'll see it won't work. The text is way too small.

@Galactus I see nothing wrong with that. If you want to fit large text such as "Negasonic Teenage Warhead," maybe the text expands in height, or have it shrink to fit the width of the image?
Either way I can see this happening

@Unicron You can't put Publishers against each other, but you can pick characters of them in multiple teams.

How to multiple teams
Galactus

I planned on releasing the Battle Royale feature this week. I decided to do some more thorough design work before writing all the code.
The Battle vote page (without variations) is pretty much done. The variations/addition bring up some (design) questions that I try to answer. Technically I could make a 64 team x 16 member Battle with additions, but how am I going to show all that info.

To make this all work, there are going to be limits. I came up with the following four 'types' of Battles:

Classic Battle
Single character per team. Two teams.
Additions possible, without limits.

Super Battle
Multiple characters per team. Two teams
Additions possible, without limits.

Classic Battle Royale
Only single member teams. Multiple teams.
Additions possible with limits.

Super Battle Royale
Multiple members per team (limited). Multiple teams.
No Additions.

*The 'Conditions' option is always possible (setting location, prep time, etc.) when creating a Variation.

I want to make the creation a bit easier (better interface) based on what type of Battle you want to make.
That's where I'm at right now. I'll update this topic when I made some more progress.
