Hey all,
Just discovered this mod and been playing with it quite a bit in the last few days. Everything's awesome. However, one complaint I have is that whenever I'm on the attacking side of a map (where you have to capture all enemy points or you keep losing tickets) It is almost impossible to win.
Now my game was 1.5 (i think?) which I did may have pirated back in the day, and am running 64 bots in total.
On medium difficulty, it starts off well, but soon there seems to be an equilibrium, where even if I work my ass off to capture a point, my team proceeds to be unable to advance any further, or just end up losing the point soon after, and my (attacking) side ends up losing on tickets. It is quite frustrating to always watch defenders win, so I'm just curious is this the way the mod was designed, or could there be anything related to my version of the game that's causing this?

I know what you mean and found a great tip on this forums that I'd like to share with you:
Just start a local co-op match instead of regular singleplayer. There you can choose the Bot Ratio to your needs. Whenever I play singleplayer I give the attackers more bots, for example Attackers:36 Defenders:28, and in most cases I get good matches like that where the attackers actually move forward in the map. So, go to:
Multiplayer -> Create LAN server (you don't need internet connection or anything)-> Gamemode:Coop
And above that you can see a lot of options, including Bot Ratio.

I too play co-op and almost always win - attacking or defending. Co-op gives you some options to customize the battle including the ticket ratio.

Singleplayer is not even being developed, all maps are designed and balanced with online play in mind.

Hey thanks for the tip man. However I'm having this issue where when I manipulate the bot ratio I can only go from "all on my side" to "50% on my side". How can I change it for maps where the attackers are on the other side when the game starts? e.g. for mount Olympus, the NZ side is defending but they are on the left by default, so when I want to play German as attackers I can't figure out a way to have more player/bots on my side.
