As a low numbers guy, can we please have the side switch time be lowered to 3 hours? It is a shame that I switched after lunch to help the low #s after a map reset, but now at night time I'm stuck on the high side when I'd rather help the low #s side again.  :(

+1.  I'm pretty sure I recall after they consolidated the arenas into 1, we had a period of around a month where the switch time was 1 hour because of an oversight.  I recall neither brimstone falling from the sky, nor the rivers running red as blood.

If you think you are having a 1v1 in the Main Arena, your SA has failed you.

As I recall..... 24 hrs worked very well in Air Warrior. (and if was you in a Sqdn, you wasn't able to move at all) I was a B-lander for well over 10 years, and what we call low numbers was a good night in AW for many years.

For those who want to know the reasoning as to why it is the way it is.

I'd settle for 4 even.

no you wont.  then it will be asking for 2 hours, then 1 hour, then 5 minutes.

You're right. But for now, let's go with less than 6!
