I normally choose US or ARVN because it seems like most games are balanced in the NVA/VC's favor (number of players, I mean). BUT, if the balance is the other way around (US/ARVN has too many players), I'll happily switch teams and play VC/NVA.

There is no difference in the # of rds per side. 2 clips = 20rds

The only reason I play NVA/VC is someone has too. Besides autoswitch blows

sometime auto-balance can be a god send. i usually stay on the side it puts me on when i join. i hate it when people join, see they are NVA/VC and switch teams. that really gets under my skin. because then for most of the game, it ends up being like 4 vs. 8 or something like that.

4 to 8 doesnt bother me. I usually play Op Irving. Having more US soldiers is fine because 90% of the time they can't get out of there base any way.

I have no problem with people picking the team they want to be on. I am better with US gear then NVA/VC, but who isnt its better. They have vehicles that are better and ususally more options in game play.

What I would like to see in respect to auto-balance team switching is that some fuzzy logic was applied and it switched those at the bottom of the list rather then the person who dies switching is going on.

It just absolutely destroys my game to work so hard to accomplsh some goal and then get switched to the other team while a pack of plane campers are running in circles trying to shoot each other to get the next vehicle.

I checked my stats at BFVTRACKS - and My time was a balance within 15 minutes of each other !! I'm not good enough at this point to make any huge difference - though I do go on sprees here and there ( My best score is 45/13 - but I don't camp unless taking a base, nor do a fly ). I just pick whoever has less peolpe at the time of joining. I can agree that the OVERALL quality of the VC/NVA weapons obviously poor in comparison to US - but I suppose that is a bit of realism in the game - as it was very much the truth during the conflict.. I think it adds more of a challenge - and actually prefer to play them for that sake.

p.s. don't pick the head with the pointy hat ( the actual name evades me atm. ) - may give you a split second advantage while they hesitate to see whose side you're on.
