I'm sorry to have been so quiet, but I wanted to make sure of some changes before posting any real information. I've found a significant cause and am working on the solution now. After more testing, we'll have a better idea when the fix can be deployed.
Nope, not tossed. The multiple ladders are so that smaller outfits aren't competing with mega outfits for qualification, but with other outfits with similar manpower. Once qualified the outfits, no matter the size, will send platoon sized force for the battles to keep things even. This is just a first phase. Ps2 is capable of doing 12 v 12 or 250 vs 250 and exploring how we can make those and everything in between work is something we will do at some point. For now were concentratingon getting one size "match" working well. Platoon size felt like the right balance.
