everything has its flaws, companies save themselves work by not testing out everything - instead they release it and their customers will report in the fails, it doesnt matter which brand.
doesnt matter what someone recommends really, you have to find it out yourself to know it, thats why there is something called a gray-theory ...
and smilecythe, you're a ca player, those are pretty much the only ones who dont have to complain cus the playerbase is the biggest for that lol - mode.
You really think that the only arguments that a CA player can bring forth is that there are not enough players playing any given map? It goes further than that. Free CA players lack the option to play a map twice, or play the maps they like. Mappools already limit the amount of maps you can play, having a faulty voting system reduces the options you have even more. Resulting in tons of games on maps you might even hate.
While I have to admit that it's rather effective at forcefully recommending you to pay, it seriously seems like something that scares away many new players, well before they plan to invest in this game.
and no im not bashing ca players, but im bashing the ones that are opinionated without having a look at the bigger picture.
and thx pika, ur right.
IMO new players can't be driven away; they don't even know what they miss and shouldn't have preferences (for dm6 for instance) already set. It's the old standard players whom are at risk.
