Next Campaign I will lock all the Factions down so you will have to wait in SOL for an Admin to defect you manually. Also I see several people are making double and even triple accounts. Next Campaign I will delete all accounts and take note of the IP address.
The reason I can not remove the units when a person defects from one faction to another is the units go into the bays. Players see a nice and shiny unit in the faction bays and buy them. You know what happens to the Mini Campaign? It messes up the BV value of the MC.
If the question of defecting around to check out the buildtables we will post all the buildtables before the next Campaign starts so you will have a week or two to check them out before we go live.

That would be me, heh. Reason being, the different factions are currently far from balanced buildtable wise, and i wanted a way to compare the relative strengths of the different factions.
I do know that there is a buildtable committee hard at work trying to balance things out, and I'm aware its quite an uphill battle. There are basically two fundamental flaws in the bv system that this server has to contend with.
1) Pilot levels and advantages (eg. edge costs 0 bv) are not balanced
2) Higher tech (Heat, weaponry and equipment) is stronger than lower tech for the same bv
So even if the buildtable committee manages to assign an equal proportion of bad / average / good units to each faction, the fundamental problems with bv still remain. Proportions aside, a player could still tune his hanger to retain the good, while eliminating the bad. Given the wide disparity between what is good and bad in 3067, you could easily have two lances matched by bv, but one lance could be about twice as powerful as the other.
Victory by composition basically. Perhaps old legends had a way of handling these issues.
Update, till further notice EVERY defection needs the approval and hangar clearance by an admin. Violating this rule will have consequences, pls spread this info if ppl talk about defecting. Not having a forumaccount is not a viable excuse.
