did Zekes vs Wildcats have icons the last time I played? 'Cause it sure didn't tonight.

I have to say I like the trend I'm seeing towards more no-icon servers.

Any other servers changing to higher difficulty that you've noticed?

Freelancer-1... You can turn them on or off.

Sorry woofiedog, there's no "on or off".

I just double checked and it is now a no-icon server. I also noticed that it is strangly empty.

When we were on it earlier we had to keep switching sides to make it a five on five game.

The last time I played, (when it had icons) it was almost full all the time.

I think the Zeke vs. Wildcat mania is in a natural slump, but will rebound. Until a few weeks ago there was seldom less than 30 players on any given evening (North American EST) now I mostly see less than 10 players, and sometimes it's empty.

I think people just got saturated with the Pacific environment and needed a change of scenery for a while.

I'm glad to hear they've gone no icons. Spits vs. 109s, one of the other Warbirds of Prey servers is no icons -- full to the brim most times I look -- and a great challenge. No more icon chasing and an itchy trigger finger can cause friendly casualties. Looks better, too.

Yes, no icons is best. Much easier to bounce http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif.
