    Can we play greater numbers?

    This week's map has 7 flags. It's the perfect opportunity to try 60 v. 60. I thought the 50/50 cap would not necessarily last the entire campaign. Hell, even 55/55 would be an improvement. Just a thought.

    The problem is the crappy server, no?
    Many people has lag already now?

    Re: Can we play greater numbers?

    Thanks for your reply. Did you mean to use ! instead of ? ? I think the lag is do to our high ping. I play on the public 130-200 test server all the time with the same ping and I don't notice any difference in lag until it gets above 150 or so and then not that much. I could be wrong but 20 extra people may not make a difference unless all 120 are fighting hand to hand at the same flag. Someone with more knowledge of this server should weigh in on this. We could always try it for one round and then scale back.

    I would be down for giving it a go for a round or so and see how it runs.

    It's mostly about not having enough active people. Not about what the server can or cannot handle.

    Yeah but when both sides have enough...Why not? We have the gay *** 5 over rule now in effect so I don't see the harm.

    If the server can't handle it, please, let us throw money at it.

    We dont have the numbers B-17, we should be happy if we hit 64 once during the night.

    Re: Can we play greater numbers?

    On that same note, what about if games just sort of reach numbers of 6+ people waiting on the wings during games? I'm sure it's not fun setting the time asides, getting pumped up then only being able to play one or two rounds because the game is full. Especially if you're in a whacked time zone. I suppose the maps are carefully considered for balance for the exact number of people in advance though.

    Well, 6 over is one extra squad for that side. Whenever that happends the other side usually gets steamrolled. Hence the 4 over number.

    Of course I only meant when BOTH sides have people waiting, wouldn't make sense to give one team an unfair edge
