    Default Red Vs Blue Timeframe. Please.

    After playing a good bit today its really becoming obvious that Guards are stacked, at least on the weekly reset days. In most cases as a Defiant im doing 1/3 if not half of my entire teams damage with half or more of the kills. Im not saying im amazing but for a team to be that bad consistently theres a problem. I got up today and played 10 warfronts. I won the one i was merced on, lost the 9 i wasn't merced, and had top damage on 7/10 games.
    Defiants have a few good players that hop on occasionaly or at specific times but an utter sea of horrible players that need evened out.
    Please give us a timeframe on red vs Blue.
    I love being a defiant, have been since release. Please Please let us know that the light at the end of this sewage tunnel is close.

    this is odd,

    I am a guardian, and I have a very similar experience, that is to say when I am playing a mercenary chances of winning seem to be higher. This is actually opposite to what OP describes.

    Could it be just a random fluctuation? Obviously game managers have access to true statistics of factions winning/loosing. I think making that information public could be very useful
    If you were right, I would have agreed with you...

    You have to take into account also, im only talking about level 60. Sub 60 has no account in team balance. Also, when im saying damage, from the soul i primarily play its ST damage, not aoe fluff. The next point to make is that i have played spurts of 16hrs + and see similar things happening in bursts throughout the day. Its at its worst on weekly reset days. As a Defiant your lucky to win maby 1/20 on reset days because all the top guard players log for their marks or run their pre-mades for easy wins. Its an utter ****storm to pvp as a Defiant, has been for about the last 4 months.

    Thats cool. Hope you keep it up. I have not been so lucky, havent been really for the last few months. I can usually tell if we have a chance or not by inspecting my team at the start. Most of the time is 50% pve gear with missing slots and that just makes me sad.

    No one is stacked it is all in your head.

    I like the way you called your team trash in a nice way though so much for that other post about egos.

    i thought the last two were losses for sure after looking at the opposing team, but ecrusab's choking gas bomb and land mine trolling was enough to keep all of the idiots who wanted to fight over the bridge from retaking it all three games

    I dont care if its red vs blue, guardian vs defiant, team a vs team b or whatever.

    All i want is an even class split between teams. Not spec, specs can be changed, just class. Then at least each team can have an even number of clerics and mages who could heal rather than getting a team with none and a team with 5 potential healers.

    I have never said anything along the lines of im the best player in the game. I will say tho i have pvp gear on in every warfront. I also hit keys the whole time in in a warfront. I tend to do stuff other than run headfirst into a sea of red, unless its called for to delay a cap. I use my head. I honsetly just dont understand how people can be that bad....

    And this post wasnt mean for anyone but a dev to respond to. I dont care about what anyone has to say or add in, i just want a dam timeframe. Is it tomorrow or in 2018?

    I think so much of the imbalance is transitory, which is why people sometimes can't agree on which side is better at which time(s). Both sides have at least 10 good players and 10 bad players, so if you happen to be playing with the bad players against the good players you will lose. And then both sides may requeue and get put against each other in basically the same times.

    Even if both sides were equal overall, there would still be 2 hour stretches where it would just suck to be one side. Red vs Blue would fix that.

    You can win almost all your Scion games if you do it 61rs style . At least greatly increase the chances. Nobody tries near as hard as a focused 61rs.

    Ive noticed this also. mainly in Library tho. ill go full tank / survival and call a rune to hold for the match. Hold it 3-4 times, die. go to get it again and see an 18k hp player pick it up right infront of me.
    Things that make you go ugh......

    61rs doesn't have near the amount of pretty numbers on my screen as 61 sab.
