only allow switching sides when the side being switched to has lower population

ex.

Side A 5 players, Side B 40 players

Side A players can't switch to side B, Side B players can switch to side A until the population hits 23:22

should allow people to even out the population to get drops, yet prevent teams from stacking one side to hide from a strong team

perhaps allow tagged units to overflow the balancing a little to not have to break up 12mans, might make joining a unit slightly more enticing as right now there are no benefits at all

ex que is 10:24, allow the 12man in the 24 side to switch to make a drop with 22:12

I would not be speaking up in this forum if I wasn't trying to take in feedback from those that enjoy the mode.

I cannot speak to how these features got implemented as I was not involved with their production, nor am I involved with the production on any of the new features that Paul has mentioned in other threads. As you have said, my primary focus has not up to this point been Faction Play. Those kinds of conversations would have to go in their respective threads to reach the people actually involved with their production. As I simply wouldn't be the one that would be able to speak on those points.

I can only speak to the things that I do have direct control over. Which in this case is using the system I have to craft the conflicts themselves. So while I am not the ideal guy to take in feedback on larger point macro systems that govern everything in Faction play, I can say that I'm more then willing to take in feedback on the things that I do have direct control over, which in this case is using the system I have available to me to craft the story points, and the general flow of the different phases of conflicts.


Forget what half of those nonsense posts that are off topic in here read.
You need to know that the Europeans are starving for siege games.

Moving back to a previous topic - it would be really nice if we had some sort of timer letting us know when a Conflict is supposed to end. Right now, I can look at the current mission, and tell it end ins 2 hours 14 minutes. But what happens after that? Right now, it's Ghost Bear vs Smoke Jaguar. Personally, I don't play clans, so it's dead time to me. I know that something will change in 2 hours, but what??????? Will it be back to Clan vs IS? Will it stay Clan vs Clan? If it's going to stay Clan vs Clan, how long is that going to be the case???? 2 hours? 5 hours? 10 hours? We need to know this kind of thing. If I have to just guess, I'm probably not going to even bother logging back in today. I'll just try coming back tomorrow. Or maybe I won't actually. Without some sort of knowledge of what I'm going to find when I log back in, why bother?

I wlll note that at a bare minimum giving us this kind of information does not actually require any kind of coding at all - just a forum thread with a schedule. Presumably, if you guys are spending time creating these stories, you're doing it more than just 5 minutes in advance. Tell us what is coming.

I'd love to hear why you think it's a bad idea to give the players basic information on what kind missions and phase length they can expect.

It is not about being a bad idea , however it is off topic on a post that i started
regarding a matter that i want to see get fixed.

If you wish, start a new post, share what you have to say,
in return i will try to correct myself of how i've been typing on this forums ,
not undermining your post (unless i cannot resist myself)
, try to give feedback and push the subject further toward actual change IF i like what you have to say.

I say "I" a lot because i cannot guarantee what the rest of the vultures
in here will do themselves. They may not like your idea.
They may not like you ... that is why they are disliking your idea .
But that is fair.

No one likes to be cannon fodder.
Team stacking is the gorilla in the corner.
Far too many times I've seen this.
And watch guys and girls in pickup faction matches just give up.
Feel free to toss those "git gud" grenades now or the oblique personal insults now.
But that gorilla is still in the corner with a big stack of banana's.
Personally I like the story time route although the lack of sieges is just bad.

To be fair Wing 0, Ash plays FP often and he advocated for the new MM in FP. *shrug*


And amazingly ASH isn't the gift of the gods to this game that some may think he is.

Instead of 8 hour conflicts, do 7 hours?


Still way to long if you ask me, if it can be halved to 4 hours or even 3 that would be nice.

With that being said, would it be possible to just make a survey and ask some FP related questions?
Like rating:

- the game modes that are offered in FP
- the maps offered in FP and not currently offered
- Phase length

And other questions that might be important to know.

From that data the dev team could work towards adding maps or removing them, remove game modes that are not wanted in FP and so on.
It would be easier to overview then read everyone's essays they putt on the forums. :P

wouldn't it be wonderful to see the forums used for something good for a change? Posted Image
definitively something that could bring devs and community closer to each other, so:
pls do so.

That depends on the siege . Sadly this new system forces siege advantage or handicap on players for hours . Not a problem for defenders but very annoying for attackers . No games for anyone when the annoyed people run to QP till that phase is over .

Siege only works for randomized games . To keep lemmings from making a run for it , its probably going to be very seldom or given the boot .

I've been totally unable to play US Peak for a few weeks now cause work...

Outside of that I've been getting games easily in EU and OC - I never thought I would ever say that lol.
Occassionally there are a day here/there there is no one in the queues but it feels like lately there is definately a little bit of an upswing.

Would've been against a unit/group dropping them. They are exceptionally strong for tonnage. I use a couple regularly.
