Teamgames if you have a premate team and can chat on Discord:
not perfect because sometimes opponents drop if they don’t like the map but otherwise fine and fun.
Teamgames if you que up solo:
Either your teammates drop because they hate the map or you drop because you hate the map. After 20min you either stop trying or play a map you didn’t want and then ragequit when your team starts losing
Well, then I disagree. I always que up with premates.
For me only about 1/3 of the games are dropped (we never alt-F4).
Also in ranked the crashing is not as prevalent as it once was. Perhaps 1 in 20 times someone crashes (or even less).
Waiting times depend a little bit on the time of the day but are usually between 2 and 6 minutes for ranked 4v4 teamgames.
Of course 1 to 3 minutes would be nicer but I guess we need a bigger playerbase for that …
I think the main issue is that alt-F4 people don’t get punished. I think there should be a staggering ban.
Alt-F4 once and you are not allowed to que up for ranked for 10min.
Alt-F4 twice in a row an you get a 1hour ban.
Alt-F4 three times in a row and you get banned for a day…
Mostly because of map. You can ban only 1 if you queue up solo and if you get a map that’s annoying to play, then mostly you’d alt-f4. And also maybe because of teammate profiles. If their name is in a different language then maybe u cant chat with them during the game. If that person is a new gamer or very low or very high rating then you may not get a smooth game and so on.
I made the case before and will repeat, that altf4ers are immoral and their behavior is hurting multiplayer. I think Devs should be free to implement a form of punishment, preferably worse than mere timeout.
There are games (especially fighting games, sidescroller ones), where people tend to alt-f4, as to say, when losing match. I heard of one game that implemented a system that can detect players with ‘unusual’ drop rates and flag them as alt-f4ers. These players are then placed in their own matchmaking category, together with only other people likewise flagged as alt-f4ers. It’s like a personal hell for alt-f4 people and it sounds like a great idea.
Have you tried playing co-op games with friends against AI? It can be pretty fun! And the AI won’t ALT+F4 on you. They might resign at the drop of a hat sometimes, but if you do the “104” AI Command, that should, technically, make them stay until they’ve been fully defeated
maybe fix the reason people are alt -f4ing in the first place. let the game find you another team to play against, then let the two teams decide on a map by alternating vetoes or by a blind vote, at least maybe if they feel like they had a shot at picking the map they wanted, they wont want to alt4 as much?
the ranked q is for finding games against ppl your skill level, so what difference does it make if the maps are chosen from a pool or at random or whatever.
AND WHY THE HELL ARE PEOPLE SO DISCOURAGED BY THE MAPS ANYWAY THAT ■■■■ IS REDICULOUS. JESUS THE GAME IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN LOL
I was only mentioning technical problems, but yeah, to actually find a good game is another story.
That’s also a huge problem. Every second arena match I get is vs a group of 4 premades, one of them is rated 1000 points below his tg ranking. There is barely a way to win or to have a good game.
And they change their names every match 11
Yeah especially the last point is annoying as ■■■■.
Had to play 2 games in a row vs vivi(4.2k rating) who plays with an 1.8k and a 1.4k rating. YOu can guess how this went…i like how u can play rankeds with people having not even half of ur elo. Especially when the 1.8k elo player isnt a real 1.8k elo player
Don’t know why they dotn want to punish this obv smurfing and boosting. i mean 4.2k elo…
No. Many times I have connected with players from some countries who get disconnected or don’t respond to in-game chat and I have lost. And when I queue up solo, I can’t ban more than one map that I hate playing. If you want to flag alt-f4ers, you need to address these issues. Allow 2 bans when queueing up solo and 1 per additional party, make sure no one connects with a player whose game runs in a different language etc.
