Sure, I was able to kill 2 of them at a time, but with short respawn timers and respawns being less than 100m from the objective, there was no way I could kill the entire team and do my objective before 1 was always on top of me.
I know calling for backup is an option at times, but since the system saw the 2 teams were of equal total level, I did not have an option to call for backup in these instances.
The matchmaking is the worst part of this game and with only 50v50 in the server instance it can make things harder to find decent players.
I've had 4v1 with my team being from 40-60. While the other team is only one with a level of 15. It's beyond retarded. By the wacky match ups that I have had I don't even know how they determine it.
Also if you are losing bad enough you can call in backup. For some reason APB thought I would be a good thing to pair me up with someone at level 124 once and I couldn't call backup. No kills and 9 deaths later I finally could.
