Also, something is really wrong with autobalancer. Had brief game earlier today
One round I played even at odds of 2v9 at one point. No kidding. Bit later autobalancer shuffled people around but weaker side never had anything close to numerical parity in active players, it had persistently 2-3 players less, and of them half or more AFK - while stronger team had all, except one original seeder active and playing.
I know at least one player went to stronger team by manually switching sides and staying there. By his own words, he was in need ("I am need of hotwire coins").
I had to quit few rounds later because I had to drive out of town, so I don't know did it improve or did the server die off.
I have also had problem where I cannot manually switch to weaker side (numerically inferior) because autobalancer won't let me. I used to do it manually because !assist cannot be used during the first 5 minutes of the round. Autobalancer does allow me switch to a numerically superior sides without problems though. It should be vice versa.
