The goal of eliminating a whole team from gameplay.
Team Elimination is the goal to remove all members of a team from gameplay.
Using the pattern
Making Team Elimination possible is a way to modify how Teams work in Multiplayer Games. The main way of allowing Team Elimination in games is through having Eliminate goals for all members of a Team. In the case of Teams consisting of players, this means using Player Elimination but when Teams consist of Characters the successful completion of Team Elimination can result in Player Elimination of the player controlling that Team instead. Since this allows Team Elimination to be viewed as a Collection of Eliminate goals, so designing such goals is one way to encourage Team Elimination if it is possible to Eliminate the Team members. The possibility to cause Team Elimination can be a Mutual Goal for other Teams.
