there have been several discussions about this issue here already. And I really hope the devs are reading one or two. Because that’s something that can’t stay this way.
While 1v1 is the best competitiv thing, the team games is the core playerbase of this game and has always been.
Right now, because of the QS system, the teamgames are slowly dying and there’s less and less players playing the game because they can’t do the 2v2 or 3v3 they used to play for years…
I myself am an afficionado of teamgames. And being in the top 30-40 ladder from the very start, I see the situation getting worst and worst week after week.
About the good players situation, there’s a very special problem : in the top 40 there’s a lot of people that play 90% 1v1, as they are very good they are well ranked in teams too. But they don’t play teamgames often so they take a place in the ladder and block the QS for all the others.
Right now, I use to wait between 15-20 minutes before getting any game. Exept if I wait across 7 minutes, but then I play vs beginners and it’s just not fun for me or for them. + I win 0 elo, or worst sometimes the loading crash and I loose a lot of elo without even playing…
So, what to do ? How can the devs do something ? The problem is of course because the playerbase is tiny, but that was always that way. So as that point won’t change, there is a need of changing something else.
I can just ask to the devs to read some topics about it, but here is my point of view about some solutions :
- → Add an elo range people can choose to play vs and with.
Exemple : I’m a solo queuing 2000 elo player, I want to play with mates and vs ennemys that are 200 elo around me : 2200 to 1800. Whatever time I wait, it will stay in this elo range.
→ Add the number of players queuing about the elo range I choosed
That’s maybe an impossible question, I know. But if I search 200 elo around me and I see there’s nobody, I don’t waste my time.
→ Put the old ranks for lobbies, like it was before.
That should be the best overall, keeping qs and adding old ranks.
