My preferred opponent is Wei. The problem is that unless you're running CF nobody shows.
I like running random melees so I don't really know what I'm getting untill it starts -- keeps me from getting bored running the same kind all the time.
Agreed. There's so many confronts these days. Too many in fact, though the number GREATLY decreases to almost none before midnight. Imho, I think this is one of the reasons I'm not as active in-game anymore. And with the other modes pretty much non-existent outside of campaign, and Showdowns being too one-sided because of an overwhelming amount of confronters in Shu, I feel that Survival Matches are more worth my time these days (bombers are annoying when they're attacking you, but it's fun to team up with one and kill an enemy with the wall of fire
Anyway, for the sake of the topic, I have to say that I don't really care THAT much about which faction I fight, so long as I CAN get a confront match (and NOT have every enemy run away).
