If you really want to make a balanced even game than quit the rage quitters from quitting. Rage quitting doesn't happen in any other game I have ever played and started late in NS1 as it was dying off. This absolutely ruins games and keeps it from being competitive. I was just playing a game that was mid way threw and joined aliens even though it was horrible stacked on marines. I took out a power node where one of the marines bases was and destroyed there base. After that teams were stacked on aliens. Than marines took out a hive and teams were stacked on marines.... when i say stacked i mean 4-8 kinda of stacked if not more. One thing that drew me to NS1 was the fact that on a lot of servers this didn't happen much and would make epic turn arounds. Auto balance kept this BS from happening. It seriously ruins 90% of the games in NS2 and is just ridiculousness.
