Team Balance
I am sure it has something to do with parties, but it does feel a bit painful when I end up on a team with 4 guys that are level 1 through 9 and a guy that is maybe 20, and the other team is full with at least 3 people in the hundreds on their levels, and sometimes a couple 1000 players on the same team. It sucks being down a man, but it is worse when you are going against seasoned players on the same team and the game decides to give the handi cap to the pro team instead of the underdog.

Edit - I will note that sometimes the next match it shuffles better. But I have seen people kick a friend, then bring them back in just so they can exploit this system that I mentioned. That is where the line gets crossed and I suppose after seeing it many times by various groups I had to at least mention this.

Also, I was going to go MEH I will just ignore it, but I just saw it try to pair me up with some people my level against a 1000 and 780 .. yeah I am glad I decided not to do that one, lol.

Well the game tries its best, most likely they are partying or abusing the sysstem to lev up fast and feed off of you nooblings overall i just enjoy playing the game no matter what, just don't be a little complaining crybaby in game or everyone willt hink you suck and rely on others to get kills hope this helps
Most of the times the level 1000s are partied up so don't be surprised to find 5 level 1000s on the opposing team with everyone else on yours.

Full - Yes, you can't QQ about it, it is what it is. It is unfortunate that some people can't see that the stacking exists, but there is nothing you can do about it. No loss, there are dozens of other servers to join so no big woop.

Cons- yeah that is what I was thinking anyways. Sucks though when u are on one for a while and they show up and then a fun balanced match turns very sided and boring hehe.

When will people learn, level only dictates the amount of hours actually spent in GCI, not actual skill level.

Bart, experience plays into skill a bit. Knowing the maps, weapons, how aiming works in this etc all add to how good you will do. Post level 100 the actual level # doesn't matter, before that though there is still a small learning curve to get over.
ssabart Sep 17, 2013 @ 7:23am 
Learning curve is there for every single game. If someone can't grasp this pre level 100, then they should go back to playing candy crush and leave the pew pew gaming to the big kids.

hey now, don't bash on candy crush. i hear that game is the shitz.

Bart is right, it doesn’t take 100 levels to master the maps or the game mechanics. Sure, you learn new stuff all the time. You’ll see an interesting loadout that you’ve never seen before or a way to use an item that you’ve never seen (I had no idea you could use the grappling hook to hug the side of the 25th floor without dying). As for the party system, I think it works well. You usually end up with whoever got first place on one team, second and third place on the other team, and the rest placed on either. Again like Bart said, level is based more on time than how good you are. I’ve played against level 80s who are as good as level 1000s. So if you do see two 1000s on the same team, it doesn’t always mean that the teams are skewed unfairly.

also some of those lvl 1000's have used some sort of xp cheat because just today I saw a lvl 1000 with 600 and something kills and 1000 something deaths. I always check k/d because that's also a good way to spot those hackers. while it is possible to have a k/d 3:1 I've seen people with a k/d of about 7:1 which is highly unlikely unless boosting or cheating.

edit: also I've noticed this too I think the xbox ver. did a much better job balancing teams.

I have a 10 k/d, it's not hacks there is just a huge gap between skilled players and new players.
