This is a long job and it will give results after a certain time, not after a day.
Simply because old players should be really-really be more mixed in others games with new players.

In a small team the newbie in necessarily left alone, to hold a large map area, against
who already know commands and units usage.
this is a general battle behaviour:
Large team: newbies are usually ignored, players spend resources to kill dangerous

No chance, not this time ? Let's wait again !! ROTF... Are you serious ?
