Especially after tonight, once we hit about 20 people it should of been a landslide of Quick Connects filling the server in minutes, all we are getting is manual connects. Worth taking a peek at, because we are having a hard time just starting games still :( Which is also why we were thinking maybe 32 person conquest / rush mix for optimal start / crowd.

I personally prefer 32 players, to be honest. 64 players is an impressive number to have on the server, but that many people makes it hard to do anything.

Dog fixed the server :D! However there still seems to be a discussion on the final mode / player limit of the server. BUUUUTTT, we are getting quick match players and filling up :D

Did something happen to the settings when it went from 32 back to 64? We almost instantly lost all of our quick match people joining, also Tehran Highway killed the server but I think Stevo took note of that.

We didn't get a single quickmatch person after it went to 64 person.

i noticed when it was set to 32 players the maps were still set to the large versions, not sure if that was intentional or not

Well, you get more vehicles

It also feels less chaotic. I'm not sure how much bigger ConquestSmall is from ConquestLarge

It seems that 48 players might be a sweet spot. We have been trending towards playing 48 player conquest when we do play conquest and it's not as chaotic as 64, but also gives a better feel than 32.

My vote is for 48-54 player Conquest if we can ever get quick match to work with conquest. :(

I still prefer the 64 person. When you get a lower amount on a large conquest map it turns into a pure vehicle game. People tend to forget the strengths of infantry. One infantry can easily hold down a point if he is support or engineer.

However, the maps also vary quite a bit. Maps like bazaar and overpass are a lot more crowded and I would prefer 48 where to maps like firestorm and kharkland it needs 64 people.
