I will use my experience as of 15min ago to illustrate my point here. I am VS on Connery. Looking through instant action, my options: -Hot drop into an outpost defense with "Enemy platoon detected" with the capture bar halfway to completion. Clearly there are no VS here defending and if I dropped in i'd just get spawncamped. -Hot drop into Eisa Tech Plant, a battle which I can for some reason drop into when it's a battle between NC and TR. If I dropped in here, i'd fight for a bit then die and be unable to respawn anywhere. -Another outpost hot drop, this time into a TR held outpost with "enemies detected." Less than a squad of TR are there. That's not a battle, and there's no indication if we even have a sunderer up or anything. Why would I ever drop there? -Another outpost hot drop, "enemies detected," this time a defense. Again, this could be from 1-12 enemies. There's no way for me to tell if this is actually a small scale battle or just the map being ambigious. -Another outpost hot drop, this time on a continent that is 64% NC, with "enemy platoons detected." Clearly this is just a zerg of NC taking undefended bases on an empty continent. So that's hot drops out of the picture, clearly not gonna get anything there. So I look at the map, scroll over individual hexes, etc. Indar: 55% TR, both NC and VS are warpgated. No good fights here clearly. Esamir: Aside from the aforementioned NC vs TR fight at Eisa, no hex has more than "Enemies detected," and i'm not going to go around checking random outposts to see if there is actually a fight there. Amerish: 64% NC, aside from their big zerg that no one seems to want to defend against, no other hex has more than "enemies detected." You know what I do at this point? I just log off. Finding battles in this game is too much effort and the player is not given enough information (IE: Is the SCU up? Do we have any of the satellite bases? Is there a Sunderer nearby? How many friendly players are in this hex?) to help them find one. This is ignoring the fact that yes, most people seem to avoid battles and just capture undefended bases, which is something seperate that needs to be fixed as well. But I need more information to help me find an actual fight where I can kill enemy men, please.
