1. Moderation team - When you messaged a moderator on Aeolus chances you wont get a reply.
2. Quality of moderation - More inconsistent than trying to find a ladder game. Some rules are enforced, some are not. Moderation team has obvious favourites (usually within their own clans).
3. People sucking "pro"players ****, its constant and disallows any suggestion or conversation.
4.0. Balance - Its completely ******. The amount of strategies available now and those that were available in the patch after 3599 is like comparing a puddle to an ocean.
4.1 "Community Balance / Council of Setons" players are doing a really bad job of balancing the game. They dont know what they are doing, and they keep publishing patch after patch. Air has been completely dominant after the ASF changes. Air snipes are stupidly hard to do due to SAM changes etc. ASF change was for performance reasons. It didnt help and it wasnt repealed or fixed.
4.2 I loved Phantoms, due to the buffs RAS and sACUs have had, phantom is just mega turtle spam. Nobody knows how to play Phantoms because thats what they do, theres no psychological games anymore, its either rush exp and hope other Phantom joins you or spam sACUs.
4.3 Seraphim are in awful spot. The aim of the game these days is to rush to T3 ASAP. There are hardly any naval maps that are good or played. Sera has weak Air & Land comparably.
4.4 Setons is easily the worst shit to ever happen to FAF. I like Setons, but it is so over played its worse than Dust 2 or turtle rock. "Council of Setons" is a joke, just like the map.
5. The only reason why new moderators are even moderators is because they stuck around, not because they are impartial, diplomatic or even close to what a moderator should be.
6. Smurfs - As much as everybody riles about smurfs and boasts about the "anti-smurfing" "tech", its extremely clear that most if not all "pro" players in this community smurf. If you point this out, nobody gets banned - because its an "alt" account. Give me a break.
7. Mods/Scripts a lot of mods or scripts are seriously lowering the skill level and competitiveness of the game. Auto-OC, ecomanager etc. Any game moderator/developer worth their salt would have banned these from their conception. They are cheats. They are not acceptable to run in game. You may say - "Oh you can download them too", anybody can download aimbots, ragehacks or wallhacks does not mean they are not cheats - get ******.
8. Oh and Bombers not being reliable and bomber micro abuse.
Edit - If I could I would have ZePilot take over again and roll back to 3599 and go from there. Even though he was a dictator there were WAY less problems (ESPECIALLY connection issues) under his dictatorship than what **** we've got now.
If there is anything else I will add it. Feel free to rage/criticise/respond, or as Mods do, delete/warn/ban at your own disposition.
