    From a match just now...

pom: i think the headline is
pom: reckoner faces adversity from otherwise full time job of capping on empty server

I don't they're aware of the fact that caps on an empty server don't count towards stats tracked by server. >___<

If the argument is that I can't capture the flag in a full server, then eh.. omg :D I get to call you out on this one.

This may be beyond pointless to argue with them about this subject.

    IIRC, there has to be either 7 or 8 players on the server for stats to be tracked.

Was me! Logged in several times over the past couple of weeks to you and brah in 4v4 match just grinding easy caps. And every time I've seen the player count go to 8v8 where the easy caps stop, I see you disconnect.

I get it. 20 year old game. Population isn't the same, times have to change. And they're just 1s and 0s in a data-center somewhere.

    Stat padding is a real thing. Always has been. Usually happens noon to early after noon weekdays, mornings on weekends. (EDT)

    It's true that I do have a significant record of RQ/disconnecting :o !

It's not that I can not cap at all in 13 vs 13 matches - (screenshots from last month, included a mix of all sorts of matches for less bias):

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1K0-d0tBEVPzUGajGxPsG...
But I do understand your point about the population and what Illusion says about Stat Padding.

In those small matches where there are fewer players the scores tend to be a bit more crazy :o I do agree with that. In one of those screenshot of the scoreboards I saw a 170 - 100 scoreline... x__x in a relatively small match.

I can also understand that you say: "Was me! Logged in several times over the past couple of weeks to you and brah in 4v4 match just grinding easy caps. And every time I've seen the player count go to 8v8 where the easy caps stop, I see you disconnect."

But it's confirmation bias, ^__^ - and that's okay. I don't 100% disconnect/RQ from every 8 vs 8 or higher match where I can't cap.

Not every match is created equally of course. :P We all know this, but it's more that I find it a complete waste of time to play in some of these matches late in the evening. Even if I give it "my all" I'm still just 1 player - I do like to play the objective, but it's not enough.

There's so much headaches to be had just by staying in game where, for example, I can't even see the flagroom/basement for 30 minutes x__x -
Because A) I'm one of the very few Offense players on the current team. B) We may not have a half decent D setup and a single scout (not Brah xD) can hold forward "W" + mouse movement and get a cap at times. C) Getting rekt by the Team balancer pre-match or later in the match with more players joining. D) etc.

It's not a job, thankfully - Just playing for relaxation and sometimes there's fun to be had in a challenge/competition (even in a public server).

    Anyone who is in the top 20 caps of all time on this server is probably guilty of stat padding at one point another. It happens. Sometimes capping releases those endorphins, man. But to do it over and over does get stale. I love playing when there's 6-8 people on a team. But if those 6 people aren't playing D, it's a stat paddlin' https://imgur.com/a/i3ugWiq

    I kinda miss the 60 minute matches, for nostalgic reasons, jaja :D

Some insane scores and so many caps were made there... I remember having a 235~ ish score by the end of a round. xD

Sounds like sour grapes to me. Reck shouldn’t be allowed to play if there isn’t 20 people in the server?
