Needs a blacklist option more then anything.
I like this game a lot but I keep finding servers that cant handle the load of 20,22,24 players and rubberband like hell. There are too many to memorize and usually after I run into three in a row I just don't play for a week. During the steam sale I noticed new players saying the game itself was bad becasue all they could find was extremely laggy servers. At least I can avoid all the KingKhuna servers because they all have the same name.

To me its always the little things that kill a game a good game. Also how much a server is black listed/ favorited would be a better method of establishing community preference.

Man KingKhuna servers run the best for me.

I just don't like being re-directed to a server I didn't choose when it gets full; that's no different from click jacking to me. They don't ask, just dump you in another game minus the individual res you have acquired.

Still there are pleanty of servers that are very laggy. As a thumb rule if it say LAG FREE or IBGS (combat) I don't even bother.

There is no mod which allows admins to forcefully redirect anymore afaik. And if you are in US KKG are really one of the best.

Look it happened twice and you dont need a mod to do that. Also are you both just shills for KKG?
I was mostly poinintg out why I wanted a black list.

I have seen servers where you can connect to another one of their servers in-game but it does not do it automatically. I'll keep an eye out for that but I have never encountered this on any server.

Simple solution: don't play on 20+ servers.

I'd love to blacklist servers that don't let me use "oldschool" alien vision. The people who made the decision on this orange crap need their legs broken.

There's a reason popular games like TF2 have a black list, some servers are garbage, I'd bet there are some garbage admins out there too.

Also Daxx I was using those numbers for examples I can't remember the name of it but I was on one that was dying at 16 players, this probably rare but it still happens. Also why should I have to play on a smaller server because a common tool for end users was not implemented. Instead they gave me orange vomit alien vision. Genius!!!! Allegedly this game is long out of beta phase, but some of the lack of basic UI features makes me think that was a load of bull. Remember when you couldn't edit your commander keys? Daxx your free to play on all the wonderful 14 player servers there are out there, but me I'd like to play on more 24 player servers. Please next time keep your ten cents because it might as well be free.

What's really sad is servers like IBIS that are plagued with rubberbanding are the only ones populated sometimes. It kills me. Look at this http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=220060156 BS.

And I rubberbanded on a KingKhuna server tonight... Just went fade and lost my 50 P-Res. Sorry for arguing lol.

Official servers rubberband as well

Don't care if official rubber band as well, once I get my black list they will go on it too. There are good ones out there, but its like sifting through a pile of garbage to find a pearl...every time I log in....

between the long loading times and the garbage servers this game seems more and more like a waste of time if it weren't for some of the awesome people I've met in game.

I don't between all the servers I play on I'm happy to find one where people aren't stacking the teams and sitting in the ready room cause they wanna play on 2pro4me's team. I can't really be too picky.
