Speaking for the elitist. In my opinion, they should make the game as awesome as possible, with as large teams as possible while maintaining balance and screw minimum system specs. Boohoo, some people won't be able to play the game. Keep your systems up to spec or don't expect to play new, high tech games. Its common sense. If you can't afford a better PC, then PC gaming is not for you! It's an inherently expensive hobby!
Its not just about being low end for the players to be able to play.
Its so they have a better chance at sustaining a player base.
Higher the specs = less players = less chance of this game being to able to grow.
I want this game to be successful, the new TF2.
I imagine it will be a great game on release but not all 'great games' get enough attention.
Also, 20vs20 probably isn't feasible in this game.
As i said, 8vs8 game mode is much more suitable.
They'd have to build maps 2-3 times larger.
Means getting from one side to another will be pretty grueling in a slow ship.
And then you consider the balancing side, getting enough players in.
Considering all the other potential game modes.
Healer camp fortresses. 1-2 healers are bad enough 10 healers? camped?
Consider the spawning aswell.
Its pretty fun getting spawned on one side of the map just behind the enemy. When your team are all on the other side.
20 -20 will just be hectic - no teamwork, call of duty style mob fests.
People are already constantly complaining about queue times now, whether thats a bug or an actual lack of players is something thats yet to be revealed.
So yeah, 20vs20 isn't something for this game.
8VS8 or maybe 10vs10 sure.
