    The balancer works most of the time. Nothing works 100% of the time. It would be nice, however, if it could separate the O players and not put them all on one team. We had a good team, but we were defending for the entire game. I tried to go O but I'm not a good O player. Fun game that would have been MUCH more fun if it had been better balanced.

    Doesn't matter who PB sandwich is, your team does not come close to the other.

    I think Elf makes a semi valid point here in that regardless of stats or w/l ratio, there are some games where one team has 4 O players and the other team has none. Whenever I notice that and I see the balancer message come up, I try to switch. Then I'm reminded why the balancer works because the team I switched to has no communication or direction even though they have more players.

It's a quality experience to be heckled by a basement D player on the winning team who joined 20 minutes into the match after you switched to balance.

    I’m impressed you kept them to only 2 caps! They definitely have the stronger line up and you don’t have 4 SGs lol. Although 4 demos on d is cringeful!

    Sure, just get everyone to indicate before they join a team if they will be playing O or not, and then have them stick to it for the entire match.

    Hes only showing the ending. they had 5 people rq after we capped 1 time. then it was people coming and going. they had 5 engys at one point. I know rutrow and mintberry where 2 of them.

Also the offence players are getting tired of being the only one playing O and rest of the team running around frantically doing nothing. OR a team That is 5 engys 5 demos 2 hws and rest solly or d medics. Its an absolute shit show for a map as tiny as 2fort. And its been happening more times then not. Its that's the case mise well just O vs D.

To accept the things I cannot change

Courage to change the things I can

And wisdom to know the difference.

    Conceptually, the balancer picking team captains only and then the team captains picked teams like backyard childhood sports would be cool. In reality it’d probably slow the starts by 10 minutes and butt hurt half the team players 😂. Still it’d be interesting if this is how it was done once in a while.

    This sounds cool. Could it be implemented on a limited basis as a test? Also it would be cool if every player was forced to join a team at the start of a new match and no spectating could occur for the first three minutes. Lots of players sit and wait to see the teams populate before joining.

    It's always sad when the balancer sets the teams to like 5v10 and the 5 are God-tier D2F players that still manage to reek havoc out numbered two to one against the ten pissants.

It's the serenity prayer. It's recited in many recovery programs (AA, Al-Anon, etc).
