Out of the Blue

Not to startle anyone too badly by bringing up gaming in this space, but I want to comment on my mild frustration that there are so many great BF1942 mods out there that there aren't enough people to play some of them. My comrades and I are currently fairly obsessed with Eve of Destruction, but it can be tough finding an appealing game out there. I'm thinking the popularity of Desert Combat probably has something to do with this. Speaking of frustration with BF1942, since I'm rolling: What's with that auto-team balancing option? Yes it can be annoying being on a team outnumbered two-to-one, but those situations usually work themselves out... I find it far more problematic to be switched to the other team every time I die (which can be frequent with me), especially since it does so without any noticeable warning... I've even killed teammates after respawning before realizing I'd been drafted by their side.

you must be lucky when it comes to public servers and the quality/maturity of the players in it. That is a treat and blind luck for me, the rest of the time it's filled with people that cant count or wont switch when asked (and politely, mind you)

I was loving Battle of Britain for the first few weeks it was out until everyone realized it's more fun to be the Axis and teams were always unbalanced like you said. And then the guys who liked to obstruct their axis teamates by using vehicles and whatever else they could to block planes really ruined the fun for me (although that did get me to join allied almost every game )
