I'm a noob, I just played a map where I was switched from assault to defense because of PunkBusters evenbalance feature. After getting killed in the first 20 seconds several times I looked at the honor levels of all the players. To my shock I was playing with 2 other noobs ( I call them that based on there Honor levels; under 15 ) against 5 experts (again based on their Honors of 20+) Has anyone thought about a HonorBalance system that would balance out the honor levels for both sides. For a noob like myself, I would prefer to learn from playing alongside of an experienced player rather than be target practice for him. what's your opinion?

Here's my take on that, but I know it's frustrating, my friend just picked up the game and he continuously reminds me of how screwed it is. http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?t=111909

Sir FraggedAlotThanks for the link

I dont think it has anything to do with Evenbalance, that is just the name for the Punkbuster site company, it is more server specific. The server admin has the capability to "balance out" the teams, and thats why you don't end up on the team you requested.

Just a question for Iceman for my information. I have never run a game server(AA or any other), does the Admin have the ablitiy to balance Honor ratings and not just team numbers? To update my thoughts since I first posted this thread: - First, thanks to all the comments in this thread and the one linked to above. - Second, I think Honor balancing would not just be a good way to help noobs learn the game, but would be a way of improving the game play for everyone. Instead of having one sided turkey shoots, you can get real battles. I would like to see it at least considered as an option in future versions of the game.

I appreciate your input. Unfortunately, YES, the server Admin has the capability to move people around from assault to defense and viceversa, and that creates sometimes a one sided battle. Even when you clik "Autoselect" you will find yourself on a team that has too many members. Especially true on "Clan Servers" that seem to cater to their own clan members, they clump them all on the side they want to be on, and the other side could be left with "a bunch of n00bs," to use the appropriate terminology. Hope this helps
