  • thePlayer: The player you wish to add to a team.

This example adds a command to create a new team for a player, then add him to it. It also adds a command to remove him from his team.

function assignNewTeam ( source, commandName, teamName )
  local theTeam = createTeam ( teamName )  -- create a new team with the specified name
  if theTeam then                          -- if it was successfully created
    setPlayerTeam ( source, theTeam )    -- add the player to the new team
addCommandHandler ( "gimmeateam", assignNewTeam )

function unassignTeam ( source, commandName )
  local theTeam = getPlayerTeam ( source )  -- Check if the player is on a team
  if theTeam then                          -- this player is on a team, so we can remove them from it
    setPlayerTeam ( source, nil )    -- remove the player from the current team
addCommandHandler ( "takeawaymyteam", unassignTeam )
