Is low population buff broken

I've been in prime time this week on Vivec NA with D.C. having 1 bar against EP AD 2-3 bars. I swear I don't mind being the underdog but at least reward my bravery.

    don't go into vivec, so i don't know the score, but is DC #1 by any miracle? if so, it seems MUCH harder for the #1 faction to get the bonuses, like near impossible.

    PC NA? DC is in first because they run very, very deep in the afternoon US time, pop-locked versus 1-2 bar EP and AD.

    It takes something like 3 consecutive hours of being low population compared to the other factions. But the requirement may have been reduced to 1 hour perhaps, I know the devs have tinkered with that over the past year. But if your population starts increasing then you lose it just as quickly over whatever time period it is.

    And as far as I know it's impossible to get as the points-leading faction. Did you ever see it last Sotha campaign, @Flame_of_Hades ? I feel like we never had it on DC, even with consistently lower pop in the evenings (NA) with the faction leading. Then as soon as the current campaign started we had it day 1 because we were trailing and had low pop. We reaped the benefits that evening as low pop essentially gave us double AP. Was glorious ;)

    No idea when the low score bonus kicks in, I've never looked too long at the scores when it's been active.

    We did not get it. Which was unfortunate, because my Dk Bomber emp would have loved double ap for those 10-15 kills for one leap :)

    Lol, yep. MagDKs make amazing emps when built properly.
