What determines who sits out? So after many many hours of playing and subsequently getting rather good at prop hunt, a trend has emerged that I'm really starting to get sick and tired of. I find that I am consistently sitting out almost once per map. That combined with my bad processor speed which takes almost 2 minutes to load a map causing me to most assuredly miss the first two rounds, you can see where this would start to become cumbersome. From what I have noticed: The amount of players can range from a small 3on3 to a full 16on16 game, that doesn't seem to have any sort of effect. I used to think it had to do with the player order in which you connected. I tried connecting quickly (assuming my client didn't hang on "retrieving server info...") and I've tried waiting to be the 20th connection. This did not seem to have any effect. I am now starting to suspect that it has to do with skill. I say this not to be putting myself on a pedestal, but this is coming also from a friend who happens to be quite proficient at prop hunt and is starting to notice the same sitting out trend happen to him. The two of us, almost as a general rule of thumb, will be at the top of the leaderboard more often than not. We also sit out more than anybody else. It has gotten to the point where we can pretty much call it for when we're going to have to sit out, and have lost purposely just so we can play the next round. If suicide doesn't happen, sure enough, out you go. The lingering jarate effect is always a plus too, but that's a whole 'nother matter. So what exactly is it that determines who sits and who plays? Don't tell me its random, because I simply do not buy it. Too many people have noticed and have commented on my sitting out for me to believe that. Statistically, it just does not add up. In other related news, teams should not be swapped so quickly that winners have to sit out.
