I see new people joining my server and other servers all the time. <span class="ev_code_RED">SO...YOU USE MULTIPLE PC'S AS I DO AND SEE SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT HMMM MAYBE ITS THE TIME ZONE THING I MENTIONED EARLIER</span> Plus I've seen many high ranked vets playing, and they play often. Just because you see empty servers doesn't mean less people are playing. The ranked games that have already started do not continue to show up in the list. <span class="ev_code_RED">WE KNOW THAT. WE HAVE BEEN HOSTNE FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW AND ALSO RUN CLANS</span>
The real problem is the lack of patience among gamers. Most of them will not even wait 5 minutes to try and get a full server. <span class="ev_code_RED">5 MIN ON WEEKENDS, 50 ON WEEKNIGHTS</span> There are too many servers where the admin has left the minimum players to the default, which is 2. <span class="ev_code_RED">I SEE MORE SERVERS SET AT 16 THAN 2</span>So, once 2 people have set their status as "ready", the match will then start, and no one can join afterwards. Most noobs want to start the match when there are only 6 or less players. There was this one moron who joined my server once, and he told me to start(start the match) almost immediately after he arrived in the lobby. I've been forced to ban a couple of them when they start talking like animals because I refuse to start with only 2 players. <span class="ev_code_RED">YOU SEEN TO THINK THAT EVERYONE IS MORONS AS YOU CONSTANTLY ENTER THREADS ARGUING FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT</span>
Even if you do manage to get on a full server, there's still the people who ditch once the game has started. If things aren't going their way, they'll just leave one by one. I'm also aware that many people get disconnected too. So it's hard to say what has happened when they become disconnected. It would be really nice if the game's console displayed whether a user left by choice or not.
