Well it is autobalance while the game runs as well as already assigning players to the team that needs people or having to force select a team rather then setting the default team as British. I assume though that this is on the list of fixing as even the devs should notice the inbalance in teams so not to worry :)

There used to be a team balance limit that was somewhere around 3-5 players. However, with the current spawning system, a player isn't "on" a team until they've spawned into the game, which led to a very common and annoying situation where you would click spawn, wait for the timer, but then get kicked back to the spawn menu because the balance was upset while you were waiting to spawn. Because of this, they (temporarily, until the new spawn UI arrives?) raised the limit to around 15 players.

the naval mode needs a auto balance, because i have played rounds, where there were around 20 Brits, but less then 10 french. that takes all the fun away because the french ships tend to get blow to bits by several british ships in no time, so a rather tight team balancing would be good (around 2-3 players)

Yeah the team balance system can make the naval battles really one sided atm. Less noticeable on the land battles though.

Perhaps, but this is a video game not history.

I guess its acceptable in land battles, but atleast make it fair in navy battles just as harry said its game and needs balancing to make it fun for both sides..

We need better autobalance, today i was in the Army Siege server, where it was 60 vs 15 eventually, and nobody gave a damn on the British side, even after asking for people to balance it out, you just get bombarded with people telling you to fuck off. I just pretty much stopped playing as it ruined the fun for me. I was fun for a while, but with the unbalanced issues right now, i'm not touching this game anymore. I'm doing what many people are doing right now and that is returning to NW.

If I am forced to play for a nation which I did not pick, I will disconnect. If I have to wait until enough opponents are there for me to spawn, all good even if it takes a few minutes.
