Config roulette would be awesome!
The option to pick a random load-out from your inventory would be great. The button could just say 'Random' in your drop-down config list.
I love the idea of that kind of decision being taken away from me occasionally, so I can be pleasantly surprised each game and constantly mix up playing styles and tactics from game to game.
The 'random' selections chosen would still be ones which the player has designed, this would be great, it would mean that staff/bodygear selection could be semi-random in the same way that drawing cards is semi-random (spells).
It sounds like something that could be easily applied to custom lobbies (and before entering a realm) ..But I wonder if it could also be applied to league competition to (ranked/equipped), mostly to spice things up. I think this would make competition more varied and balanced (diverse meta-game).
The idea being that a semi-random format would test a players all round ability rather than a reliance on a single build or play-style, a one load-out season can get stale for the user and their opponents..
..If a mechanic to encourage more variety is needed, perhaps in order to qualify to compete in a season you should submit a list of at least 5 different load-outs which are randomly picked pre-game in the matchmaker (in the same way that the matchmaker allocates a random mega-spell in Classic).. Semi-random is the future!
