The pent layout was originally setup around a 5 solve/5 cumulative setup. With every pent you add, the odds of a fast solve goes up on a bell curve due to chance of being swamped all things being equal. It comes down to which sucks more, missing a quick 5 solve or having to go -1 for 1 pent. After trying both I favor it 5-12.

its not that easy, its go for quick 5 solve, (which doesnt necesairly needs to be quick) OR.. go for -1 pent AND ontop of that dont have to walk out of the area just for that 1 extra pent just to solve. You might disagree cause u could basicly pent anywhere, but some people dont, anyone who starts doing FM icies from magen to FM will get screwed by that +1 extra pent outside of the area.

I have alts from captain to warlord and have been playing many years on every class at different times. I know the hardships as well as anyone.

Thats extremely broad and generalized. Also for FDM Ice Gargs slipping into mixed might be annoying, but no more or less than penting lt col and slipping into 2lt/col/major depends on where you were at the start of the previous solve.

Often times the "next area" doesn't mean anything. Just because the rank changes? so? Its about the physical distance between the pents and how closely they are clustered. How problematic or convenient this is.. well that differs based on the rank youre penting as well as how many are in pents (and their pent speeds). If you are solo penting you can plan your solves carefully enough for this not to be a major issue. If you are penting with someone else then all bets are off regardless of whether it is 6-11 or 5-12. Personally I favor SGM, 2LT, 1LT Top 5, lt col, brig, lt gen, FDM and baron UW top 5 for this reason as I am sure many others do.
