<div class="IPBDescription">anyone seen this?</div> I've seen alot of complaints about team stacking, people get on a server and the vets/clanners are all on one team. However, we recently took the password off of our pub and I've seen something very different. Because it is our clan's server and we realize that people dont want to play on a server with stacked teams, we make a special effort to split up and keep teams fair. But lately, I've noticed that the pubbers seem to stack a team before the clanners even get a chance to split themselves up. There'll be a marine team with 1 clanner and 6 pubbers and an alien team with 3 clanners and 1 pubber, with 3 vets/clanners sitting in the readyroom thinking "hmm what should we do." All the pubbers rush into marine and the clanners who go random all end up "stacking" aliens =[
i just random it. i then have a defence
However I also see pubbers going alien, finding out it isn't that easy and then leaving, causeing the Marine side to be overly powerful due to all the pubbers leaving the "harder" team.
I have also noticed that it seems autobalance doesn't work to well, anyone else seen that?
First round on a map you go random (i.e. everyone), next round you swap, then it's a new map. When it's observed it works usually.
