It was a rhetorical question, but you're exactly right; the same people getting the shaft for teamstacking.

Can't win for losing.

Right, because they're the ones who can make a difference. Right now they tend to not care and group up, but if they consciously split themselves evenly between the teams (I'm not saying that a single clan has to do so, just don't AIC, PRwars, CIA, TG etc etc all join one team) then the games would be far more competitive and enjoyable for all.

Edit: Here you go, just checked PRspy and it's a great example of what I was just talking about


PRspy doesn't show all 85 players, so there may be more of each on either side, but from what we can see, the two clans are not only playing with their clan buddies, but have jumped on the same side as the other clan.

Can you point out the 8+ cohesive players you can recognize on the other team that will balance that out?

Edit #2: This is in no way trying to shame the above players, just an example of how the players tend to gravitate to the team that clearly looks stronger.

All I see is how you think everyone online on the right side isn't good enough.

Psyrus, there is nothing wrong with that screenshot. The teams look balanced.

The wine was in and the wit was out!

They work well toegether. If a couple of Thema switch it does not necessarily mean they can make a difference working with the other team.

Whenever I play BF2 with a few buddies we can completely dominate the game. I have yet to get them to play PR, but if I join PR and we get a good squad that works together... it's the same; one good squad can dominate the game.

The clantags only suggest that they tend to work more together.

But yes, the 1-man locked squads really are a weak point in this game. All you need is 9 idiots.. and the other 20 can't do anything.

Single players don't win the game, cohesive intra-squad and inter-squad teamwork wins the game, or is that new information to you?

I'm really bad at the game. I guess I don't know what this teamwork thing is.

Sarcasm doesn't particularly strengthen your argument

Anyway, since this is your train of thought:

We'll never see eye to eye, because unlike you, every squad I lead is with complete randoms, so perhaps you're now unfamiliar (or have forgotten) with what that's like, especially when playing against a stacked team.

My point is, it can really go either way. I have definitely been on the side that beat prwars and/or aic. I have also been crushed by them.

You can't blame anyone for a flaw inherent in the system. Teamstacking is going to happen. It's been going on far longer than PR has been around. To suggest that it will "ruin" the game as the title of this thread suggests is farcical. The fact that this mod has survived nearly 10 years with Teamstacking very much present bears this out.
