Very active for me since there seems to have been a massive influx of new zealand players recently. I've probably added about 20 people over the last few weeks so there's always a few people on my friends list playing.
Well yeah that is a problem from time to time. Usually my friends and I would simply switch teams to even it up. Well at least try to give the team with the fewer players a chance of winning. Usually they don't quit when people join. EA separates their communities anyways. VIP my ass. All VIP did was split the community. There have been hundreds of times when a VIP map pack would load and the room just goes from 12v12 to something like 5v3. Sometimes worse and sometimes better. They need to just make the map packs free. I have to get rid of my VIP from time to time. The VIP maps aren't always full.
