Overstacked vehicles should be forcefully sold when the player rearms them.
Open, NormalPublic

Description

At the round start, people buy a lot of vehicles, especially jets. After the initial fights, this can lead to team having 3 or even more jets while the other 2 teams have none.

Buying a jet in this situation will most likely get you killed, although you might take one of them with you. In other words, you waste 10k+ for 2k. No one will go for something like this unless he has insane amounts of money.

I would like to see a feature that, once you repaired your vehicle, similar to how you get teambalanced when respawning, forces a sale of the vehicle you are in, for the sake of balance.
While I know it is frustrating, this is probably the only way of getting rid of stacked vehicles, especially jets, since they are basically untouchable with ground AA unless they do a stupid mistake.

And if the players decide to do nothing (not engaging because he is afraid of loosing flares and not rearming because he does not want to loose the jet), you still took their ability to use the stack to their advantage.

I agree with this, Perhaps when there's overstacked on the threshold the player should not be allowed to rearm and be forced to sell. maybe for a jet, u can have sell spots on the map.

Same rules could apply to forcefully selling vehicles if they become unavailable to buy due to low player count.

Interesting idea, and would work for sure. Solid +1. However people would just spam pawnees, APCs or tigrises then. So i think something should be done additionally to this. Might seem quite obvious, but just as a reminder, ofc you would need to teleport the guy back to the spawn if force sell happened in a jet.
