    Default Help us grow the server....

    Hey guys!

    So we have noticed lately that there are a lot of games where one side wins in very lopsided victories (like 1100 - 0 tickets). Interestingly, we have noticed that the winning team is pretty heavily populated with AARP guys.

    Now this makes sense because:
    1. We all like playing with each other in game
    2. We joined AARP to play together
    3. The fact that you are in AARP means your a pretty damn good player as it is
    4. We all love team killing Nook and Willy (just saying)


    As you know, we tend to piss off the other team when this happens and sometimes we lose player for good when they rage quit and un-favorite our server. It is happening too often lately.

    Now this is not a problem when we have a full server between 48 - 64 players, but in low populations it is an issue.

    so we are politely asking for some consideration when in low population try to keep tickets even for both teams, control the game and back off at times to let them get flags back. I have been switching teams lately and ask that you consider doing the same, even if just for a bit until the game evens out.

    Our hope is that doing this helps retain players and yield a full server faster.

    We know people just want to play their particular brand of game and that's cool.... but if we can do it in a way that grows the server it is a win:win for everyone!

    thanks! (now go kill Nook and Willy)!

    I understand completely. I generally like a good challenge and I understand how unfair a clanstack can be so I tend to switch whenever possible. But there are some days when I'm tired of being on the losing side. Especially if my teammates are terrible and I'm against a bunch of high levels.

    No matter how good you are you don't stand a chance against multiple great players. I would suggest that if the teams are unbalanced or there is an obvious stack two people should switch teams. Either randomly selected, volunteered or the top two. That way they might balance the server and the person who switched isn't entirely inconvenienced by a team he doesn't know how to work with. The two people that switched can hopefully work together and help balance the game a bit more.

    I think I've been on bennett's team about twice in my BF4 career. As for the rest of you junkies, I thoroughly enjoy playing against you. Except cyan1d3 - he should always be in my squad, tho blasting him in the face with the 870 in Zavod brings me much joy.

    that being said the easiest way to balance it out is to divide AARP players on each side 3v3 etc 4V4 think of it as a intersquad skrim with ourselves we just have pubbers helping out. IF not unfortunately when some one joins and sees 6 AARP on one side they leave. We are not here to point farm from lesser players it amounts to that some days. We are here for a contest and having a good battle is far more fun than point farming the other team. A ticket difference of 100 points is a battle. a ticket difference of 600 is with out a doubt point farming. It is your server and many will day I play the side I start on I have heard it all since 2002 and my first game and the CAL league or TWL to m any players play for the points and look at my score. and the phrase look I rock. I come TPTFO and repair tanks use igla on choppers. You should split up treat it like a skrim against each other will make it fun will make it better

    I agree with Steve.

    Another thing we could try is to have all the GUIDs of clan members in a list and have a balance put an equal amount of us on each team. I'm not sure if that's possible but it should work in theory.
