Server-admin pubstomp: do you accept it?

Here's the issue I encountered yesterday. I was in this asgard 10vs10 server, and after the game started I realized it was 11 vs 9.
The server admin has a team of 8 friends including himself, but one of them was late, so 7 was in redfor and 1 was left in bluefor. They didn't want to move the "pub" from redfor to bluefor. They didn't want to kick anyone. The one in bluefor badly wanted to play alongside with his friends, so he was simply moved to redfor, making the game 11 vs 9.

I, as one of the team, found it very disgraceful and quit immediately after the game starts. But most of my friends do not think it as a big issue. What do you think?

I've seen some server-admin pubstomp. I would accept server admin "kick" or "move" some random player to make room for his friend, even though this "some random player" could be me. I might be upset, but it is their server. But making the game 11vs9 is totally different.
Which one do you think is more unacceptable? 11vs9? or kicking/moving players to make room for friends?

It's just life especially in RD

Stacking was never this big of an issue in ALB nor EE.

The upside of the stat system is that you can avoid these types of players, the downside is that once you avoid 10v10s, you will realize that still almost every single non 10v10 lobby is stacked with egotistical friends who have a cheese strategy or a simple turtle artillery spam strategy.

avoid the entire terrible community that has ruined this game, which generally means stop playing the game unless you enjoy playing with these stackers yourself

You have to play only with friends or against other teams to avoid this.

Stackers will flame and complain about anyone who says stackers are an issue. Who can blame them, free wins, lobbies in their favor in terms of map/mode, and friend fun.

Non-stackers; some hate them some are neutral, some are in between. Not going to try to paint broad strokes too much but most people in-game in warchat who don't have an issue are NATO mains who benefit from the fact most stacks play NATO, that or they stack too(or generally just follow these stacks around)

At the end of the day people want free wins and group play if they do, and people like me want a more balanced, solo skill match. The problem is that because of the former it's hard to get the latter. You can make a match and stacks join it, you can ignore them until you're sitting in a weekday for 20+ minutes trying to get a match filled

Stacks control this game, the way to win is not to play because they have brought the overall quality of the game down considerably

I don't care too much about my score and after a long day at work, if no friend is online, I prefer to join a 10v10 even against a stacked team because I don't have too much time to wait, I don't mind going against the odds and usually I am too tired to get into a 1v1 which is more stressful than a tactical. Sometimes you can won this if team colleagues are decent players.

But of course 9v11 , or kick to make place for friends is disgraceful so I try to avoid respective servers.
