I love how every 36th post starts with the word “remove” and goes on to suggest removing some QoL or other, without an acknowledgment of what said QoL addresses, whether removal would harm more players than help, and like that.
I don’t choose my faction based on relative population. I don’t pvp either, but when I used to and if I still did, I’d prefer queues that actually work, and if you want grief from your own team that’s been a thing since long before merc mode. “I’m only in here for the marks” was a thing back in the day, and people have been refusing to win easily by following instructions since the game’s inception. Blah blah not winning, honor farming. No objectives, just kill and flex. Merc mode sounds like a scapegoat in other words, as all that I’ve mentioned predates it and caused the exact same issues.
