why when auto balance evens up the teams it goes by number of players and not total honor levels? so many times i see one side w high h levels and noobs on other team! no one will join noobs and the high h level players recruit from other team if good player joins! the noobs would learn way more if they could spectate thru a good player while waitin 4 rest of noobs 2 be slaughtered ! or do we change game name 2 turkey shoot! lol. does anyone else notice this

Ya I know what you mean. The way I understand it is the last person to join the server is the one who will get bumped if needed. The thing is the clans/squads or friends that have high honor would have a greater chance of being seperated or make it harder for them to play on the same team. Remember this though, you actually learn more by doing in this game. If you play against ppl that are better than you it forces you to bring your A game. As far as ghosting the better players, really I only like doing that if I am somewhat interested on how the map is being worked, but thats why you should try opening the map in single player first so you can explore it then you won't feel lost once you play it live. Anyways, soon enough you'll have ppl calling you a cheater too, and thats when you know all those worthless games where you got owned paid off in the end. Take care man, and most importantly, have fun!!! Cya!

I can see both points. But still, to get on a map where one team is grossly out matched in Honor points (say team one avgs in the high 30-40+ and team two is only in the low - mid teens) how is that going to help the noobs learn?

I hear ya red dog ,i surely learn the most when playin, more so when on a team w some leadership! but i do think the game would be more fun 4 all if people w the leadership skills switched sides and made use of the training they have; this happened last night via willing high level player and it made the game way more fun 4 all im sure. props to him anyways! and thx 4 your input

well, honor doesnt exactly mean skill. if you are on a good team you can suck at the game but if you stay alive you get points anyway

That is a point that should of been made initally! That is very important to remember that someone with high honor DOES NOT make them good. Why? Well here's one example. A guy has played since 1.1 and has logged a lot of time. His honor reflects 70-80+ but really, if you looked at his fragrate it may not be so high, or if it is, mabey he has got most of his points/frags playing one or two maps that he has mastered. Not to say player x is not good, but to some they may be intimidated by his honor alone. Another is there was/is a hack that was solely for awarding points, again this would speed his honor extremely(don't want to go into that one much more). Another and this is what I find more important than anything else, is some guys are hacks not only do there fragrates reflect it but just by watching sometimes it's obvious. What do you do when you suspect this, keep your mouth shut and move to a different server, or try to out smart them(it possible sometimes). BTW those are just example and all I'm tring to say is when you see someone with high honor, they could of achieved it in many ways. But watch out man cause the guys that do get high honor honestly, are the guys that make you think, "what a f****** hack". And if you chat this during a game, he will smile and thankyou for the compliment! lol Anyways, man it's to have fun, and even though there are a lot of registered players, I know there's got to be a lot of ppl that get frustrated and never play again. That's an option, but once you can get over your ego as far as how good you think you are, you really can begin to enjoy the game! Sorry for the rambling, but personally, I stopped playing for a while, shortly after I began. Not because I thought I sucked, but because of all the issuses with bugs and stuff, it got to be too much. And what sucked most of all, was the way ppl were treating others as far as being new to the game. Some guys get high honor and they think that the server they're playing on is there's and they should be spot lighted. And also the crap they would dish out to newbies who could care less how good they were or what clan the were in or there uber username, pallleeeeze.:fistpunch: ANYWAYS GUYS TAKE CARE AND REMEMBER THIS GAME IS FOR EVERYBODY NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE OR HOW WELL YOU PLAY IT. Psst, and when you do frag that guy with high honor, it feels waaaay better than fraggin a newbie, don't it? Cya!

The only way i have found to force a cure is 2 get your side 2 leave the server and auto balance will take opposing team and splitt it, then join up again .not pretty but it works! :naughty:
