Low pop free or 25 perks anything, either is fine with me.  Anything but 12 hours  :old:

Why would it need to be that high?

Kind if like taking out a 262.  There can be an advantage to selecting your country.  The more people the less its needed. Ten times is high.   That was a bit drastic.  I would buy into even three to four times the number of people in the arena.

I still think two countries would even be better till the number of players come back up.

Just allow switching to the low population side any time, no charge.  Keep 12 hour rule for switching to either of the other two teams.

again the best idea, IMO..

I think we should just keep the 12 hour rule. Just pick a country and stay there. This way it's more fun. U shot a guy down and made his wife a widow then next u end up seeing him the next flight on ur country. Lol it's just unrealistic.

I am sorry but this is a game...not realistic in any way...the 12 hr rule is no good for people who are not chess piece..."loyal"....

the 12 hour rule has to go....especially late at night eastern time.

The thing keeping me from ever switching sides is the idea of being stuck on a team I don't like for an entire day. I think the perk price idea could be good, but I think the best solution is to let players be able to even out the teams.

How we have evolved from our selfless promises to Hitech years ago to help the game.

1. - I only want to switch to the low number side to help out, and I'm only in it to samurai myself into the largest red darbar I can find for the oppressed low numbers guys. Que to a glint of heavenly sparkle from the AH fighter saint's pearly whites when he smiles for the cameras.

2. - Now today it's, Hitech you sorry s.@.b. give me what I want or else.

I guess the honeymoon is finally over, and the judge is hearing some real "cow stuff" from the lawyer.

Example (perk costs are just an example placeholder):
12 hour is the default.  To switch sides earlier will cost the player 100 perks.  At this point the player can either wait 11 hours to switch back or pay another perk cost to switch after their hour has passed.  The perk cost goes up with each subsequent side change within those 12 hours, after 12 hours it resets.  The increase in perks is to keep players from trying to abuse the system.

Would the price go down as your hours get lower?
For example 6 hours being 50 perks.. etc?

Otherwise, I support this  :aok

Why not make it to where you can switch sides for free every 12 hours, or anytime you want for say... 25 perks... just pop up a window "Do you want to spend Fighter, Bomber, or Vehicle perks?"  Click button, boom, switched.



I'm all for it, but could we wait 12 hours to decide?
