I don't think population is level for 7 hours although I do conceed that prime time is usually good (around 4 hours total from my observations). But after that.... This is a 24 hour game, so the other 17-20 hours things get a bit challenging. Also, if nc = 46%, tr=28% and vs = 26%, I don't care if there are only 100 players online, NC is gonna own and that sucks for the others.

I do think that the change to pop caps will help this out though (which will counter those huge population advantages). Also, the minor tweaks the devs are doing should provide a bit of relief. I would have liked to see better population xp/health advantages, even a speed spawn advantage to make up for disparate populations, but I don't think they will be making those changes.

Anyway, I'm in the wait-and-see mode anyway. Hopefully, things will improve in the coming months.

The other 17-20 hours have very little bearing on the average player's experience while in game.

Dude, I can't believe that comment. If I don't play in prime time, my game experience doesn't count???? God, I hope that was troll bait, if so, it worked well.

I don't think thats how it was meant.

The events that take place while you are not playing have little bering on your play experience.

You might be fighting on a different continent, but you'll still be fighting the same way.

It was not meant to offend, it's just that the devs most likely won't be too alarmed by large % population imbalances at 4 am est. If the pops are balanced during primetime, I honestly don't think it's a problem.

Yeah, I see your point. Keep things working for the majority, even if it sucks for that 10%. SOE=$$$

BDM does have a very valid point. If you play at 6am CST and the populations are unbalanced don't be too suprised. If you're experiencing population imbalances because you play at an odd hour it's not really something the devs can fix =\ If primetime is ending up relatively even as far as populations go....../shrug

It doesn't sound too nice but 'tis the way it is.

Yeah, but what chaps my ass is the fact that I can't play during primetime any more because of the out of control lag situation, which is frustrating on so many levels. Fortunately I work a lot of afternoon/evening shifts so I usually can sneak on in the morning, but it is really annoying to either face crippling lag or unbalanced teams.

Or what could be happening is what takes place almost every night on one continent or another: Unballanced 3-ways. I cant count the number of times Cershyen or Ishundar were under attack by VS/NC and we cant save our own damn home cont because it pop-locks us out with half the people that one of the other sides has. It makes no difference what the server empire pops are at that point, your still gonna get mowed over by an unequal Zerg force

With the current pop-lock system it is imperative that you respond quickly to any attack on a home continent if you intend to keep it. Until the pop-lock numbers are changed, you will be locked out if you don't immediately start moving people in.

Indeed.

I am just stating that as a possible explination for the problems that guy was talking about. I know I have experienced unexplainable overwhelming odds before and now that the Devs finally admitted it, we can avoid these situations now.

nc wins because they have superior ground forces, vans, and enforcers are no match for the VS ground troops, however VS has air superiority
