Random Support!

From Hattrick
RandomSupportLogo.gif

Random Support! is a whimsical federation (AllianceID: 41190) founded April 22, 2006 by USA user joshito.


Description[edit]

Every week a different Hattrick club is chosen at random, and everyone joins in to support them. The randomly selected club must have purchased Hattrick Supporter, so that fed members can use the club's guestbook to announce their support and wish them well, and so that the visited club can join the fed if they choose.

Support History[edit]

Random Support! history is a bit sketchy before September 2006. Occasionally, more than a week passes between random team selections. Special Random Support! events are marked in gold. Teams that joined the Random Support! fed after being visited are marked in bold.

Target generation[edit]

A list of potential teams to support is created by generating random numbers between 1 and 2500000 at random.org. The HT search tool is then used to find the club with this team ID number. The first team found with Supporter is chosen.

2500000 is used as the upper limit to make sure no team is excluded. There currently appears to be no team with an ID number higher than that, although this may change any time Hattrick expands. The total number of teams currently in Hattrick cannot be used as the upper limit because some ID numbers are unused.

Special selections[edit]

There have sometimes been non-random selections on special occasions.

BOTCup[edit]

The federation has offered the support of its members as one of the prizes in Gumby's BOTCup contest:

  • BOTCup II winner: hlupak's Atlin AFC
  • BOTCup III winner: stepanogil's Vilma and the Beep Beep Minica
  • BOTCup IV winner: adiraven's FC Titans Satu Mare
  • BOTCup V winner: garscow's Pummeled


Random Champion selection[edit]

As an experiment to increase awareness of the federation, at the end of Season 35 a national champion was selected at random.

Random Champion I: LA-Burner's Kastelin (France)

End-of-season challenge[edit]

At the end of season 39, teams from Canada and the USA battled teams from England in a friendly challenge. One winning team from the challenge was selected at random.

Random Challenge Prize I: hoojchoon's Wisla Lech Durham (Canada)

Miscellaneous[edit]

Visit by Sheep[edit]

During the week of September 14, 2010, Random Support was visited by members of the Sheep federation (AllianceID: 95084). After seven days of bleating and placidly munching grass, the Sheep wandered off to a different fed's pasture.
