Can we change shitty rules like letting cav stay mounted on all charges or not letting every specialty available be fulled when there isn't more then 120 people at a event?
this. Line only events or only 1 specialty allowed events are the most fun
Not naming names but there are some regiments that don't like playing line to the point where they won't play the event if they don't have a specialty

Imagine doing pub events in 2020, they died in 2013 and should stay dead

Sleek somehow only attacks when he’s successfully pulled a dude away and his team is coming to help - as in, the most reasonable time to continue blocking

You just haven't found the right group to play pub events with

I'd love to have a line-only linebattle now and again. But the last time one was held, the event fell apart after a couple of weeks. Regiments that use specialties aren't able to be replaced that easily, especially when the one event for the night can't break 150 attendance. Speaking as a host with 2 servers on one night, I don't want to mess with the formula of an event that people currently want to go to.

Exactly this. I won't deny that the LIR is sometimes guilty of this when it isn't one of the events that we always attend.

I don’t have a server but what if I did a line only event? Or maybe just allow lights and line?

Cancer thread that I'm too tired to read exactly, but I think it might be time to have a community reg rep meeting to discuss shit like this, but also solving event drama and beef

lets make it happen then

we need the larger regiments to come together with all the smaller regiments, 90% of us can see that this is only going to end in the game failing, and people leaving. if you have any pride in your regiments at all, then we all need to come together, have a meeting, and fix it.

the reality is that this game has been so heavily factionalised that its split us.
think about it, why would the community come together when the events are so split and factioned?
"Shrooms Saturday event"
"Moraines Wednesday event"
We let individual people do this, when if we all put the effort in and came together it could be
"NW Community Monday-Sunday Event"

Problem is that specialties literally rule the event which it shouldn't be. Specialists should be specialists, not regulars. Some simple math will explain my point.

200 man server, 100 on each team.

You have 16 skirmishers, 16 cavalry, and 10-16 artillery. You have 42-48 people on specialties alone. Doesn't include regiments that break rules by going over the spec limit which happens regularly. This essentially creates half the team as specialists and half the team line infantry.

If you get lets say a 160-180 man event, with about 80-90 per team, the ratios get slightly worse. With about 30-40 line infantry per team assuming spec limits aren't lowered.

Anything less than this, lets say 120-140 man events will create a very broken and specialist driven event unless specialty limits are enacted. You get about 20-30 dedicated line infantry, its a joke, especially if regiments bring 15-20 line.

I notice in a lot of events where larger lines will camp behind hills the entire match until all charge because no one wants to line up alone and get shot to pieces since specialties are OP in numbers. Give incentives for line infantry to be line infantry and events may become more interesting again.

Edit: Even just playing 1 specialty or something per event would be a good alternative as well. Like lights/rifles only or something.

I wish I could get in on this corruption :(
Wanna become corrupt together?

Of course I do, who're we extorting first?

not really trying to target, more trying to bring an issue to light that i feel is just something we have to deal with. i've tried to admin before, i've asked to, event when i wasn't a part of the regiment that i'm in now. still got turned down or no response on it.

This triggered an ancient memory, so I went and looked. You're on Shrooms' whitelist, and have been for a long time. Don't know if you ever logged in with it. I only started saving event logs in January this year.

Whilst, on a personal level I hold little respect for SirBeef due to the amount of cancer, teamkilling and disbands/reforms/name changes that come from him and his regiment on a weekly basis, I actually think he has a point. And in the past whilst I have been quick to insult many admins (yannick, Xethos and Shrroms I appologise to for countless times telling them to kill themselves - I actually hold them in high regard for being good admins) I think most admins do it because they want to help out as it is a hard/boring job to simply watch a battle rather than play it and enjoy it.

I think with SirBeefs comment, this is hitting the NA side of the community harder than the EU side. NA side of the community is notably smaller and is only say 1 event which people can choose to go to on a particular day. The EU side however is larger and on weekends can see 2/3/4 different events, each about 70vs70, from different event hosts. I think this for the EU side provides a good basis whereas if you dislike 1 event, you can simply go to a different one, and allows for different regiments to play as different unit types. This unfortunately will not be achievable due to the limited size of the current NA community.

Instead what I see is this, there are 2 main people who actually own the event servers for NA events. Xethos and whoever owns the server for the Tuesday event. With Each having a load of admins. What might be a suggestion, is instead of expanding the admin use to more regiments, would be to infact limit the admin use further. Far too often, I see someone slain / revived by not the admin of the event, no, but someone who is on the enemy team and has admin. These decisions made by people with admin password undermine the admins ability to make a fair and impartial decision. Therefore I think the only way for the problem to be solved will be to;
a) Have more server hosts/variety of people having events on different days so we're not relying on same servers/same admins
b) Only people who are the admins of the event use admin powers - not some cunt who happens to have admin
c) Do what the sunday siege does whereas if you're a specialist slot one week, you can't be it the next, allowing some degree of rotation.

In an ideal world, NA community would be bigger and you can have like the EU has in some sort of free market for events where you can choose to go to the best one. Thats not the case, so these are my suggestions.

Sorry SirBeef for my initial comments. Thanks for bringing this up as I think although I wouldn't describe the admins as "Corrupt", I defiantly think something has to be changed.

This thread is based on a flawed premise and the information isn't even accurate.

There are issues yes, the ones listed here aren't the actual issues for the most part though. Why would anyone want to be an administrator these days exactly? To receive a bunch of abuse from troll regiments and ungrateful regiments who never show on time?
