I love this game. But honestly, it irks me expecting to play a balanced game in matchmaking and I join mid-game with command posts already captured by both teams. In my eyes I'm missing out on capture points at game start, and my position is to a disadvantage. Unfortunately this happens too often and is quite frustrating, almost every game. I'm not talking about the Major War with Generals. I'm talking about the Hero's tab(skirmish).
I don't mind the freeze time(wait-time) when matchmaking finds me a server/game, even the second que when you can see players joining teams and there is a timer counting down. I would much rather have this and wait longer then join mid game.
IMO if i wanted to join mid-game i would join The General War
