    I hope Trusty isn't too shocked to hear some private servers have auto balance off and some had Last Stand and Final Push off! The ammo situation was rectified when private servers came in and we could set unlimited ammo. Now that fix has been taken away and we are once again left with "We'll look into it" Which they have been promising forever

    We realize it’s an annoyance for drilling companies and will look into a fix for them.

    We “meddle” with this cvar because we are seeing it completely break any sort of balance as well as authenticity in public skirmish matches on community hosted servers where it is activated.

    I would warn users to take anything for granted and settled due to the alpha state of the game. Things will change as the development continues. If you are not happy with that prospect I would advise you to wait renting the servers until the game is not in alpha anymore where things will be more locked down.

    We are sorry about the trouble this has caused to some of you - but to us, the broken skirmish servers with this setting on took a higher priority than the hassle of having to respawn to get ammo every 30 minutes when drilling - as stated above we are looking at ways to fix that though.

    Maybe we could actually use the cartridge boxes at the firing range. Easy and quick fix for the drill camps.
    siiiiiip, yup.

    An excellent suggestion.

    But how is it activated on public servers? You are the only ones with access to those. You shut it off on private servers where people can set up their server how they wish. And if we people don't like it they can play on a different server. The ammo boxes at the range have been suggested many times, and here we are.

    It just seems to be another reasoning the split between the skirmish/historical maps and the drill maps needs to happen.

    Well maybe you're right about renting the server... we should definitely rethink renting now. And recruiting people to play WoR from other games we play. Thank you for the very good advice.

    Public servers (as in non password protected community rented servers, not official WoR servers).

    Yes, we are aware its been suggested many times.

    You're right Emerson, but you know we are back to discussing the ammo situation in the union camp again. And now what was proposed from day one is all of a sudden an excellent idea. A simple disclaimer on the differences between private and public servers would have sufficed. Very few servers are run vanilla. So what is the point of private servers if they can only be run vanilla by decree of the devs?

    I would advice you to do so if you get upset due to the fact that an alpha is incomplete and will get updated and thus changed, and furthermore is still bringing out the torches and pitchforks even after we have stated that we will create something for the drill camps in specific in order to not let you have to respawn every 30 minutes (this can be done within a few seconds if a flag bearer is present at the drill).
