The orginal game sucked. All people would do is wait for a plane to fly instead of actually trying to help their team win. What a crappy design for a multiplayer game. No thx
Although it was annoying when, for instance you saw three or four guys just sitting around the airfield at wake island, it didn't really affect things that much. Yeah, it appeared as if your team was short handed because of a few morons, but with such high player counts, 32 and over, it was pretty negligable in the grand scheme.
Besides, this time around they claim to have optimized vehicle-to-player ratios, so hopefully that can somehow work its way into helping the issue. I know Vietnam had very few jets on the map, and I
rarely seen people camping the airfield, so maybe their solution will work.
