Why so few NATO V NATO and PACT V PACT games?

Postby CloakandDagger » Tue 28 Jan 2014 17:26

People for some reason don't seem to be that thrilled with either one. Any time I feel like doing one I have to make the server myself.

What is it about the games that people just don't like?

After this IS 'Wargame'.

There were tones of NATO vs NATO matches in the previous patch because PACT was almost unplayable in the last patch. However this patch is far more balanced and you're more likely to see people who are willing to play both sides.

My friends and I always play both sides, but we want to play Nato vs Pact, because it is more fun since they are not mirrored.
Asymmetrical Balancing is simply the most exciting.

I don't know, I tend to enjoy them.
If there's two kinds of players, those that like challenges and those that want a fair game, pubstomps should make everyone happy.

Played it once or twice, just doesn't thrill me. I like to slip into the shoes of some capitalistic NATO leader, or a communistic one, yelling paroles and insults at my screen, having a blast with my 2vs2 mate.

NATO/NATO PACT/PACT is also very mirrored. I don't want to see a Leo fighting a Leo, or a Bradley sniping another Bradley...

There's little fun in playing Pact vs Pact, but there's lots of fun in making HATO cry...

Honestly? I hate these games. They are mirrored, thus boring and kill the realism. But it gets even worse when people take their most competitive decks (NATO mixed) then you basically see the same units on both sides. Not fun.

I rarely set up lobbies of PACT v PACT or NATO v NATO, but if the people who join up request it I'm generally happy to oblige,
