Switching factions should be possible even if you joined your friend in a game.
When you join a friend, but you notice the game is unbalanced, you should be able to switch to the other team.
Team Switching is done when a game is not balanced.
you mean switch to the winning team?
If yer that much of a putz to join the other team just so u can call out the team then the game won't last long anyway.
And be able to point out enemy positions to your friends on the other team? Hah, this is a terrible idea. If the match is unbalanced (like I've played so many before as well) then continue through it or leave. Party-members shouldn't be able to switch factions individually. It's bad enough the game sometimes auto-balances party members to opposite sides.
Mmmm this prevent boosting.
