Two sided would fail more...

If current side switching was available the egostatists would always look to be on the high numbered easy game play ways side causing a huge unbalance...This would then see a huge amount of complaints about, well... why don't you have three sides...it worked before why did you change it, for a start....At the times I mainly get to play I reckon you could almost see one side with zero people on it and the other just rolling..especially if there is a map people hate up...
To alleviate this there would need to be no option to change... you would need to pick a side to fight on for the rest of your time in AH ( that is for us already signed up...new people would be assigned)... that would alienate many peoples fun of sharing the love with all people in game. and not allow for any chance of an even match up of numbers

This still wouldn't really help, there is always an ebb and flo of people ... numbers mismatch regularly changing from one team to another as people log on and off... this would not change...

Three sides allows some form of evenness more than a two sided would...allowing freedoms of change helps... draconian this is your team forever would destroy the openness of this game.

You may try and talk about other games that are two sided and work...but you will find most of these are not as open world as AH... they are short term play and a new server, match gives you options to choose if you would like to continue with the side you have or change...

Decades, the "win the War" crowd has complained about this. Air Warrior in 1998, where people were paying BY THE HOUR.....had the very same complaints of secret alliances. 

In the end, it's utterly satisfying, these salty tears.

Literally there is only one thing you should care about.  Red contacts and where you can see them up close.  It makes it easier when they come to you, BTW.  It will make your flying that much more rewarding.

Your 3 country war  fails  under  DALE Addink  Warbirds,  after you split from  Warbirds 


Warbirds did not have 3 countries.

With all due respect neither does AH.  AH has 2 countries and a spectator.  Who the spectator is depends on when you log on.   :bolt: :noid

It could really get lopsided with two countries, especially when Squads rotate countries.

Yup, either two countries gang up on one ( as the OP drunkenly posted  :devil ), or two countries go head to head and totally ignore the third country.

What is needed is something to force the countries to fight more than one country.  Set it up so that if Bish capture two Knight fields they MUST capture a Rook field before they can capture any more Knight fields and vis versa for each country. This way the fronts stay active along both fronts. Cuts back on the ganging and help bring the fight to to lone country that is left to milk run unopposed bases.

What this whine came from was the inability for bish to reset Buzzsaw in under 6 hours. They’ve rolled the maps twice today before noon, they got quite.

 war is not fare... so why should this game be any different..   maybe just play and get into the action and forget about winning.  ..so much is not right here, but it works.. take the eny thing.. it contradicts the perk points and perked weapons.. so what..
