    Hey guys,

    Strange as this sounds, I'd like to request some theoretical BFBC2 scrims of TOG vs TOG =)

    I developed procon (Procon Frostbite phogue.net) and Metabans (Metabans) and I'm looking to make public gaming for BFBC2 and BF3 fairer by making a robust Team Balancing algorithm. I hope this algorithm can keep servers alive for longer, without one side getting all of the good players and holding until the opposite team leaves.

    If you guys can supply me with 16 in-game BFBC2 players names that have stats at PC - Battlefield Bad Company 2 Stats I would like to propose a fair balance of the players skill for an 8v8 match. You can play this match to test the theory, but otherwise I'd just need you guys to tell me if the two team seems fair. If not, how would you change them to be fair?

    Tried to jump on ya ts, no luck. Let me know if you guys want to help and we'll sort somethin out.

    Thanks =)

    We love your work and are keen to assist. Send me a Private Message with the date and time you'd like to catch up for a chat. I should be able to make it regardless of when - I am off work with a new baby so I'm pretty much home and awake 24/7 ;-)

    Maybe we can use GameArena Teamspeak - 144.140.154.77:20050
    It's not passworded.

    I had a chat with Phogue this evening and we did some early beta testing. It looks promising but we found at least one little bug so he'll iron that out and we'll try it again in a few days.

    Sounds fantastic.

    Team balance (or lack thereof :() is responsible for 99% of my worst BC2 sessions.

    Good luck.

    along with any FPS game, this has the objective of balancing skill levels on each side, giving a more enjoyable gaming experience. Would be great to have it tested and up and running for BF3.

    The games will run on similar engines, so any coding he does for Frostbite 1.5 (BC2) may benefit him for Frostbite 2.0 (BF3). As well, I believe Phogue codes admin tools for other engines, as reFUSED might have been implying?

    Just started having another crack at BC2 ramping up for BF3. Encountered unbalanced play last night which makes the experience not all that fun when you're on the butt-kicking end. Would be good to see something like this implemented that would swap players between maps on a server or two.
