Switching sides mid-match?

There's a strange glitch that I've seen a couple of times now and am wondering if anyone else has noticed it. Someone on my own team appears to switch sides and appears as red to the rest of their team. The first time I saw it, I thought I must have just gotten confused, but I just saw it again tonight. I even got a missile lock on them until I recognized the name as a teammate. At one point they did become green again. Both times this happened on a team death match map. I think they might have been close to the edge of the map also. Has anyone else experienced this?

Maybe two players with nearly identical names?

Would some sort of team auto-balancing do that if the mission is same-faction deathmatch?

Sure, if such a system existed. But it kinda doesn't.

Meh. I'm giving the devs too much credit for really basic (and missing) stuff again apparently.

I guess this isn't common. It was a same faction match so maybe it was a bug related to that. I double checked at the end of the match to make sure I had the right pilot. I will wait until I see it again before I send a report, just to be sure I'm not losing my mind
