Tendency to start as a pocket

Hi, everyone.
I normally play ranked 3v3 matches with same 2 friends. I am normally the host of the party.
I’ve noticed that when I pick Franks, I always start in the pocket position. This has happened at least 30 times.
Whenever I pick a different civ, then it seems to be random - I start as pocket 2/3 of the times.

Does anybody know why this could be happening?

i’m pretty sure there was a change where based on the color you choose determines your starting position.


Yeap unless you uncheck that option your starting position depends on your color number… Lower and Highest color number on your team will always be flank.


Ranked ladder has enable fixed positions, so u can pick ur position on the map (pocket/flank) only by selecting the middle color always.
