How to create randomly generated teams?

Asked by

I need to make a function that will put 4 people on the Bright red team, 2 on the Bright blue team, and the rest on the Bright green team. How would I go about selecting these players randomly and putting them on these teams? I have no idea how to do this, so I will not supply any code as I know it wont help with the process.

local brightRed = BrickColor.new("Bright red")
local brightBlue = BrickColor.new("Bright blue")
local brightGreen = BrickColor.new("Bright green")
if game.Players.NumPlayers > 6 then
    for i = 1, #game.Players:GetPlayers() do
        if i <= 4 then
            game.Players[game.Players:GetPlayers()[i]].TeamColor = brightRed
        elseif i > 4 and i <=6 then
            game.Players[game.Players:GetPlayers()[i]].TeamColor = brightBlue
        else
            game.Players[game.Players:GetPlayers()[i]].TeamColor = brightGreen
        end
    end
end

local minimum_plrs = 6
local red = BrickColor.new("Really red")
local blue = BrickColor.new("Bright blue")
local green = BrickColor.new("Bright green")


if game.Players.NumPlayers >= minimum_plrs then
    local already_chosen = {}  
     local color
    local players = game.Players:GetPlayers()
    for i = 1, #players do 
        local randy 
        color = (i > 6) and green or (i <= 2) and blue or red
        repeat randy = players[math.random(1, #players)]  wait() until not already_chosen[randy.Name]
        already_chosen[randy.Name] = true
        randy.TeamColor = color or BrickColor.White()
    end
end

ternary operator's make things shorter and are extremely useful. They're kind of difficult to understand, but this is basically what I'm saying;

color = (i > 6) and green or (i <= 2) and blue or red

if i > 6 then -- more than 6
    color = green
elseif i <= 2 then -- less than or = 2
    color = blue
else
    color = red -- more than 2, less than 6.
end
-- Due to concerns in the comments, you can use this to test it.

local minimum_plrs = 6
local red = BrickColor.new("Really red")
local blue = BrickColor.new("Bright blue")
local green = BrickColor.new("Bright green")
local test = Workspace.Model

--if game.Players.NumPlayers >= minimum_plrs then
    local already_chosen = {}  
    local color
    local players = test:GetChildren()
    for i = 1, #players do 
        local randy 
         color = (i > 6) and green or (i <= 2) and blue or red
        repeat randy = players[math.random(1, #players)]  wait() until not already_chosen[randy.Name]
        already_chosen[randy.Name] = true
        randy.BrickColor = color or BrickColor.White()
    end
--end

I'm kinda confused, are you making it so 4 people turn green, 2 people turn blue, then the rest turn red? I don't see a 4, so I'm kinda confused. Lol. Rurith 10 — 6y

it covers everything from 1,2 else is for 4 and > 6 = green, which is everyone else. Also you said; 4 people on the Bright red team, 2 on the Bright blue team, and the rest on the Bright green team Azarth 3113 — 6y

Yea I said that, but I though you were making it different. Also, I got a problem, on the leaderboard it says I'm on the Bright blue team but on my Team checker it says I'm on the Red team. Also, can I test it by myself or do I need 6 people? Rurith 10 — 6y

I added something so you can test it, read the comment in the script and fill the model with more than 6 bricks, like 15 or more w/e. I've also had problems with the scripts saying I'm on one team and ROBLOX saying another, I think it's a bug. Azarth 3113 — 6y
