What is your preference for match size and why?

For me it is 1vs1 hands down. It comes down to whoever can control all of their ships/planes/subs the best. You don't have to worry about an idiot teammate running his ships onto the beach and ruining your game, and you have control of Everything. Oh and also because my crappy connection only allows me to host a 1vs1 smoothly :)

i think 4 v 4 is the best and worst
its the best when you get a team that works together perfectly and its the worst when you get a team that has no teamwork and frustrates the hell out of you

And the laaaaaag. Maybe it's just my crap connection, but I hear a lot of other people complain about the lag in many 8 player matches. I don't think many broadband connections can host 4 vs 4 matches with upstream bandwidth less than 1Mbit (which would be most broadband connections, especially DSL).

BUT, so far 4 vs 4 is winning the poll, AND 8/10 matches that I see online are 4 vs 4, so the lag can't be as bad as people make it out to be...

It was so bad in one 4 vs 4 match for me, that I was steering my carrier hard left, then couldn't straighten it out, and ended up ramming another carrier and sank us both. Then I got booted.

Lag is more common in 8player matches but on the plus side 8 players is good for teamwork & also u dont have to control so many units on your own- so u have more of a satisfaction by taking out enemy units. in 2 v 2 matches a lot of the kills are by sinking A.I. controlled vessels while the player is concentrating on something else & where's the fun in that?
