    FYI, survival of the fittest is a misinterpretation spurred by Eugenics in the early 20th C.
    I thought more along the lines of, 'weeding out the BF2 population.'

    Would you play BF2 for long after being unfairly butt-plunked on the dA server?

    They easily keep their servers populated, because they have so many clan-members willing to keep their server populated at any given time.

    People will join their server, merely because it has the constant numbers to lure in a crowd.

    I remember getting kicked for repeatedly destroying them: apparently, they're quite averse to competition, hence the constant 'ganging up'.

    It's easier to feel good when you're stacking the teams and raping people knowing that if something doesn't go your way, you can use your admin rights.

    simply the fact that i would rather take the punishment and wait for the next round then stare at a loading screen for the next 10 mins...and anyway, without blowing my own horn, however badly the teams are stacked i'll usually do OK, atleast levelling my KD if its a total masscre..

    yeah on airmaps constant raping is very annoying but i normally deal with it more if i have friends from clan or some general friend playing as i like to kill them, but if there isnt i leave straight away also it isnt hard to swap teams at the end of the round then its MY time to rape there arse off,
    but its nice to have a challenge like taking a j10 out with a f35

    It's doing that sometime on a server where me and my clanmates are playing.
    It's always me and my 4 clanmates and 10 other peoples against like 10 clan members and 5 random people, and most of the time we're able to win

    But we cannot play their anymore, one admin was tired of getting beat by us so he said we we're hacking and ban us

    A lot of times, it's just random pubbers who keep the server filled. A few will leave the melee, but others join having no clue what is happening.

    If they're getting slaughtered every round I can't tell you what their motivation would be.

    But even if it's a lopsided loss, for me it's a challenge to try and fight a clan in their "house".

    I've seen 3 different clan/team squads, give a nearly entirely "at home" clan a run for their money, and I was on the "at home" team.

    Even if you have 3 decent squads of any players (not clanned) and a good commander it shouldn't be a shut out, even against a team of nearly all the same clan.

    It might not be pretty, and it might be futile, but it is a challenge.

    I look at it like a point spread, If a ragtag bunch of players with only a few squads working well together can take a clan on and not lose by over a 100 tickets, it's practically a win. My motivation is win when I play, but with that I have to understand that losing is going to part of it. Just picking and choosing servers to play in that "get" me wins, isn't winning. There's no thrill of victory with out the possibility of the agony of defeat.

    Fighting desperately and scrapping for every spawn and kill, can really sharpen your skills and awareness.

    If it's 250-0 every round then it's pointless, it doesn't do anything for the joiners and it really doesn't make the hosting clan any better.

    The clan I'm playing with now likes to stack because we like to play together. But we don't dominate every round, and not by 200+ tickets (only rarely). We're lucky to have a server that is frequented quite often by other clans (8-12 clan members in 2 squads quite often and sometimes more), and good individual players .

    There are some guys who come in there and give us fits. They've usually got an ACE up their sleeve. They like it because we don't make them split up. So everyone gets to play with who the like.

    One night we did have less team orientated players joining, and we were dominating. I was the odd man out and couldn't get on my clan's side. After a few rounds of fairly bad beatings and some people leaving the server I suggest we split up some of our best guys, and we did.

    It seems the word host has lost all its meaning on servers for some people. Usually a "host" tries to provide the best experience for their guest even if it means them sacrificing they're comfort level.
