    Min players to start

    I was wondering if we are going to lower the player count to start on the servers? I have free time most mornings and would seed our servers but without the min of 8 people you can't do anything but sit and wait. Is there a way for it to start like the BC2 servers did where no points awarded til there were enough players but at least you could run around and try stuff out?

    Just a thought.

    I second this thought.
    Before all else, be armed.

    I like this idea too.

    It would be even better if we could move around and "pregame" before the round started, so that we could practice flying, but I don't think that it something that you guys can control.

    Yes please! It would be awesome if I could go around with a few players and just learn the new maps a little. Right now I feel like I'm constantly walking/spawning into ambushes and, aside from Operation Metro, I have no clue as to what the best attack paths are for the other maps.

    Hopefully there is a way to run around the map pre-game, but as far as I know all you can do is rotate, crouch, prone and jump up and down while waiting on players to join.

    We might be able to lower the starting count but there is no way around the lockdown until that starting count is met.

    Has there ever been an explanation as to why they lock you down to begin with?

    If memory serves it wasn't that way in Alpha, I just don't see the point.

    Yeah, right now it is set to 8. Could we maybe have it changed to 4?

    Re: Min players to start

    I'm fine with no points till 8 people on server, just wish that the lock down was reduced. Ideally would like to be able to join empty server and seed, but be able to play around with the environment till enough people are on.

    This is just the first week of the game though and I don't expect that things like this will get sorted out for some time. Just wanted to put the thought out there.

    Does this make the server unranked? I've been trying to help some small communities seed their servers, and it has been a fruitless struggle as of yet.
