The insurgents mounted a pretty poor defence for the first half, which was why we lost so much so rapidly, I think the bleed was ok, but it will take a few more tries for me to judge as the insurgents weren't playing particularly well.
Like Finestyle said basically, I was one of the ones who recaptured suburbs and moved towards mosque, etc.
The fact that usa wouldnt leave palace would explain why we bounced back quite easily. I encountered quite a few enemy squads spawning around residence but they failed to stop mosque being recaptured, etc
Earlier on in the game, the scores just before Industry fell to usmc were like 240-219 and I could see usmc were going to lose because they were bleeding.
However Industry was under pressure and none of the insurgent were reacting.
Insurgents were on the west side of the map. Industry fell then the others quite rapidly. The score was like 98-180 because of the bleed plus normal losses made it like free fall for the insurgents.
Then surburb fell and insurgents woke up - plus its not hard to walk from palace. It was too late though and the score was like 40-129 when suburb was eventually recaptured with fierce house to house fighting ( I havent fought there before)
Unfortunately I have no screenshots so the scores might not be accurate but usmc won by a fair margin as insurgents continued to bleed. Moments before the end of the game, facility was recaptured and the bleed stopped with 5 tickets left our side. I figured if no one died we could still win

If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.
Please provide any feedback on the most recent changes. Is one team always winning? Is bleed still too fast? Are the USMC forced to move forward? etc.
Last time I played it (Insurgent, last Sunday), I thought it was pretty balanced. The USMC had to push fairly hard, and were using all their assets. Bleed might be a little bit fast though. The CP capture logic is good as it is IMO.

There was a bug reported that the industry flag was still able to be capped by the insurgents. This has been corrected. Please report any flag logic that does not follow what is defined in the original post.
it played much better than i'd anticipated from another round in the sandbox. good job. we actually had an american win that ended with boots on the palace, something i personally haven't seen for a couple months.
