Keys to Victory: 3+ snipers, 3+ spies
Snipers and Spies are credit to team. They are, however, very situational and their services could be deemed, how-you-say... supportive?

They are both popular classes, I enjoy both. I even like having a balanced team with a sniper and spy. I don't enjoy being on a PUG team with 3 snipers and 3 spies.

How to remedy?
1. Team loadout HUD
I would love a small addition to the killcam HUD that perhaps shows the team loadout. Ideally it would mark openings needing to be filled "Your team needs a medic!" or polite suggestions "Your team already has 3 snipers. Your team could use a..."

2. Award point to taking suggestion
give 1+ point when a player switches to a suggested class. Only allow once per player per match, to prevent gaming the system.

how would a "balanced" team be assessed? I would suggest a simple highlander with 3 utilities to be easiest, though I'd like to see preferred treatment to medics, second demos and soldiers.

You see, if somebody lacks the basic gamesense to notice that playing the teams fifth sniper/spy will not work out, then they wouldn't be of more use as a different class.

I've decided to just start playing on class limit servers.

skittery, care to share any servers? I look for class limit servers as well, but they're hard to find. One of my favorite servers converted back to no-limit, much to my chagrin.
