It was 5 vs 5 everything was balanced and fun, then out of nowhere a clan with about 5 people in it all with Blue Rift Stars get put to the other team making it 10 vs 5, one thing lead to another and we started getting base raped, not to mention they were taking the game too seriously and bad mouthing everyone on the other team :L, over competitive. Why isnt there an autobalancing if LBI would pay attention to their game that match could've been 7 vs 8

Balancing is inherently broken. It always keeps clan members on the same team regardless of numbers.
There is an option when setting up the server, split teams on / off is supposed to allow groups to be split into each side, but it doesnt work properly, its very intermittant at best.
and at worst doesnt work at all, much like the headset audio in game

People in this thread make good points on game balance I have seen host kicking because he was losing, rubbish team balance were one team has lots of blue or star icon players and the other team is full of low level players. Team switching also occurs which is usually done by people who care about k/d ratio or w/l ratio. Clans also making unfair teams. Moreover when people join the game sometimes players are not divided equally on each side as they join which effects team balance.
give one example of team number imbalance. One time we finished a match 6 Vs. 6 and all the players left apart from one, you would assume the team would shuffle. WRONG it was 6 vs. 1 the match started the guy left after 15 seconds, auto win.
These issues can cause a lot of frustration for people especially new players which shouldn't be abused by the more experienced players. If this goes on long enough this will effect the games longevity and you will get fewer games. For example not that many play zones only four to five matches max.
My ideas for change is make kicking a team effort, atleast have more than 50% to kick or atleast tell me who the host is so i can report them if they kick me for selfish reasons and if many people complain can ban them from kicking. More team randomisation, every round, no team switch. If clans join a random game only make 2 or 3 in one team then if more join go to opposite side. Games with no team balance or nor randomisation should be put on the bottom of the list to discourage this behaviour.
