Apparently, his feeling is that quantity translates to quality to which I would not agree whole heartedly... Sure there are reasons for which you can have a very enjoyable 12v12 game, but it can go the other way just as easily *because* there are so many potential loose cannons/cats/potatoes/etc...

The current 8v8 is underused because its group-queue only and for comp play which is not always attractive.

I'm still waiting for an update on 8v8, even just as a short trial period. I'm not sure if it's my bad luck, but I have been suffering a brutal week of incredibly passive teammates since the patch. Even with leadership and acknowledgement of communication, people seem really committed to hanging in the back, ignoring objectives (cap, escort, incursion...). It's like people decided that length of survival in a match is the ultimate decider of quality play opposed to actual effectiveness.

I really want to see if 8v8 will at least make poking into the enemy more forgiving rather than crippling and that the death ball will turn into more strategic placement rather than a heard tried to shoot through each other to pop the poor guy checking corners.

Please do something about the loading time!
After each match it takes quite some times to go back to the home page.Posted Image

Loading time can be due to many reasons. My loading times have decreased enough to make it noticeable once I removed my swapfile, defrag the drives, reset swapfile and locked in its size. And had to reset my security settings that had been reset to default, excluded MWO folders from active scanning.

Loading times are mostly based on your Internet speed, HDD type/Speed and CPU. If you have less than 8GB of RAM, slow RAM, or many things running in the background, that can contribute as well. Also, when I switched from the MWO launcher to the Steam launcher, I got somewhat better load times.

I played back when it was 8v8 and my opinion is that the game was more tactical and more fun back then (even on the smaller maps).

played back in 8v8 too, and back then you really got obliterated by people less as well. you're likely to last a teensy bit longer when it's only 8 people shooting you, rather than an entire company set up in a firing line. plus 8v8 means that if the enemy team has a lance of LRMers... they'll actually be at more of a disadvantage due to the fact they're now really underarmed for close quarters.

Would love if they revived some of the "old" maps for 8v8 like forest colony and stuff...
