Maybe "flame war" was a bad choice of words. Since R18 has dropped SWRC, I will be shopping around for a different SWRC clan to join. I don't want to tick off anyone by accusing them of running an unfair server when I have no evidence at all - simply a gut feeling from many many hours of play.
Bottom line: Every now and then when there are many clan members present on this particular server, I notice several things:
1) The damage anyone wearing the clan's tag can take seems very high. I can follow one around unloading my blaster into his head, and they just won't die.
2) The damage their weapon can inflict seems to be cranked up. I'm unloading rounds and rounds into them and they turn around and kill me w/ a couple of bursts - even though I'm at full health.
3) The "tractor pull" effect will be in play, where I get "locked in" to someone carrying a shotgun and I can't dodge or move - boom.
I'm a pretty good player, with lots of hours logged. I always have decent ping and my rig is top notch. The effects above are not subtle to me, they are like night & day, black & white.
All this may seem like a rant (and it sorta is), but all I want to know is: "Am I crazy?" or have other experienced players noticed these same things?
