currently users can only host one battle at a time. if you have one scheduled already, you can't host anything else in the meantime.

now that XHBs can be scheduled well in advance, particularly with 2HB & 4HB offering generous 2day and 4day scheduling windows, i think it would be beneficial for users to be able to schedule multiple battles at once.

with 4HBs in particular, there's a strong incentive to schedule way in advance to try and get as many people to see and participate as possible - gotta get those 11 entries for boonsave! ... but that prohibits the hostist from scheduling anything else for several days.

to give a more specific example of how this would be useful, i host weekly OHB serieses on Friday night and Saturday night, but i would also like to host a future 4HB on a Saturday afternoon (for max attendance). at present, there's no real way for me to schedule the 4HB much in advance at all, Friday evening is the earliest time, after the weekly remix.

but broadly speaking i just think it would be nice to be able to host other battles during the time period that you are "committed" to a future 2HB or 4HB, especially since it is beneficial to schedule as early as possible

to add some more to this: would be good if you can only host another battle if it doesnt overlap with the entry period of another of your battles. and maybe if the max amount is 2 or 3 (to avoid... 20 ohbs at the same time lol)
maybe limit it to mighty botbrs as well idk

i think i need to think on this some more

i don't want just whoever has a bunch of boons and a badge scheduling unlimited battles in the future

obviously, i'm thinking hosting certain amount of battles should be an earned thing.... like multiple level hosting badges could be a thing or something idk wow y'all battle so damn much can't wait for dreamhost to audit our 120gb+ of digital arts files xD

to avoid anyone going for shenanigans, i'm sure it's best to cap the function at 2 or 3 battles scheduled simultaneously, like kleeder suggested. 2 is enough, honestly, to solve the problem of "oh i can't host something else while my 2HB/4HB is scheduled".

it makes sense for it to be something that's earned, like maybe a hostist point / battles hosted count threshold? (kleeder mentioned Mighty and that's not a bad idea either, especially considering reaching Mighty will unlock 2HB or 4HB for most folks in whatever format they focused on)

you can only host ohb and 2hb, if youre already hosting 4hb etc

Is there still collective interest in this? I agree that having this feature as an earned thing would prevent chaos. That and the fact that being able to host the amount of 2 at the same time would be enough to solve the problem of not being able to do so spontaneously because you already had another one scheduled (as happened to be the case with me today).

i wanna see this at x hostist/[insert format-specific class] points, maybe somewhere between 1500 and 2500 for hostist? it would be cool to have class specific rewards like in rpgs like yakuza or kh or ffx where if you put in enough in a class you get rewards for it. if not then make it something for level 24 so that the effort is still put in to get it.

edit: another thing i just thought of is the limit. make it scale to the level of the botbr, so for example those who just got it can host 2 at a time, and then those at level 28 or 29 or whatever can host 3. 3 should be the max, tho, no way are we gonna see battlespam.

personally i like it the way it is because it forces some more dang INTERACTIN and WORKINN TOGETHER. Someone who can host is essentially always around unless there's not enough people for the battle for bonsave

(Also I like Lumby's class point rewards proposal in general perhaps for other purposes)

I don't agree with having more than one battle for each hour.

It would be better that more contestants join one single battle, rather than having different battles at the same time with few contestants.

i agree! and we try pretty hard to adhere to that

the thread is about one user being able to schedule an XHB when they already have an XHB scheduled. for example, you currently have something scheduled that's 4 days away. if you wanted to host something else between now and then, you couldn't

i basically only see this as a problem when wanting to schedule something bigger like a 4HB. you want really good attendance for that, so you wanna schedule it early, but you're locked out of hosting in the meantime. i found that to be a problem because i have traditionally hosted some weekly series battles on the weekend, so i couldn't schedule bigger things far in advance for the weekend too.

I like this idea, I think even just raising the limit to 2 would be helpful

idea i had while making breakfast earlier today......

raise the stakes and with the steaks raisened intrigue much

ok . . . hear me out here . . .

max hosted battles == 3

deposit == current deposit rates * number battles to be hosted

so a 2nd battle would require a double value deposit
and a 3rd battle in the queue would be triple
