I see them sometimes on official server. To be honest, I don't like them very much, because the whole point of a clan war is that several players play and win together, and the X Team Each games seem like ordinary games, because all clans have only one team owner. It doesn't seem to me to be different from hotseat game with yourself.

I think it's mostly just a way to work around the 8-hedgehogs-per-team limit. So that they can have more hogs per player.

Granted it comes with additional side-effects (can never switch between all hogs at once, separate inventories, etc.), but I guess that can make things more interesting in some situations.

Especially if tag team mode is on, but I don't think anybody really used that one :P

I believe sheepluva might be right with the workaround theory.

I wonder if we should raise the 8-hogs-per-team-limit but that's easier said than done. Not only would that touch on a lot of code (not that it would be an excuse, of course), we then would have to force players to invent even more hog names for their teams or else fall back to boring default names.
