I'm bringing this topic up from a place of caring, I like the way multiplayer is but I'm worried that if something doesn't change we'll end up with locked even teams which would be terrible for a host of reasons, let alone the ability for clans to play together.
That being said, the overwhelming majority of time (regardless of the server) the teams are outmatched, not just by a few players but usually over double, tonight it was something like 34 Germans vs 12 Reds (standard), this is totally unacceptable.
1) It has had a negative impact on the community, every night a host of people on red quit and type in chat the reason being the team imbalance.
2) If this keeps up, someone will most likely lock the teams and force even numbers.
3) It's not fun. It's not fun for the Germans because there's no one to fight. It's not fun for the Russians because every obj has cover and every fight has you outnumbered.
We need to find a solution to this, I'm not sure how we do that or what it looks like but nothing good will come from continuing to play the game this way.
Maybe if you're jumping on as a clan and you see that the Germans outnumber the Russians you join the team with the least amount of players. Same for singles or small groups of 2 or 3. It's not rocket science, it's just common courtesy.
I dunno. Maybe I'm over thinking it.
