this thread is directed to all the Players that play on either of our Servers,
so to all of our entire enlisted Community.
Since the Infantry Server is not really well populated, I wanted to propose some changes that could help us start matches on this Server more easily; and basically let our Players have more fun that what they currently have on this Server.
First of all, the size of the maps.
It is really difficult to get a good match going in the Infantry Server, and also in the Vehicle one. But imagine playing infantry on a 64 scale map, with only 3 or 4 Players ... With vehicles you can have some fun and move quickly, but on foot you either get stuck in a loop of capping and uncapping flags, never facing the enemy, or you just get tired to be in such a big ass map with just two folks to hunt down in the enemy Team.
I propose to try to scale this Server down to 16 Players sized maps
(also setting the maximum number of Players to 16 accordingly). This way it will be easier, I hope, to kickstart a match, and it will be generally
more pleasant to play when there are just a few Players (at least the Server will move from the "empty" list to the "populated" one). Also squadding up and giving orders makes more sense in small maps, where you really have to think strategically on where
Secondly, the ticket and round numbers.
I propose to re-scale them as well: scale down the tickets to
something like 100 - 100 tickets
for some maps, 150 - 150 for others; and to increase the number of rounds from 1 to 2
. This way we will have fast and intense close quarters fights that don't get boring quickly (and that is awesome for infantry!); the losing team has a chance to take the other side of the map in the following round (to get the "revenge"
), you don't get stuck in the same never-ending match forever, and you also change from map to map quite quickly.
This in my opinion would yield a better experience and it's worth a test run, because for the moment the Infantry Server is probably one of the less popular we have. What are your thoughs?
