I am a 16+ in 1v1 and around 25-26+ in TG. Below is my 50 TG games playing in solo queue.
Soon or later, there will be less and less players playing the TG games because solo players will start noticing that they are used to shorten premade team queuing time and helping them on their unreasonable win rate and elo only. Few months, or a year later, when the player base in TG getting worse, if someone remember this post, push this up and let’s see what the queuing time it will be when people claim that we should never consider doing anything of placing solo and premade team together in a match because it will slow down premade team queuing time. They just don’t treat solo player’s time is time as premade.
As a solo when I play with solo I can get 60% win rate and if I dont count those ridiculous elo difference’s matches, it could be like 70%. However, when I face those premade, my win rate is about 30% only.
If you ask me, queuing 5 to 10 mins more instead of having a ridiculous one-sided game, no matter I am the winning side or losing side, I will definitely choose longer queue because playing a non-competitive game is just meaningless and no fun, it’s just waste of time.
To those solo players, I bet you won’t be surprised and I know you would feel the same how unfair of current TG games are. Grab a friend with you, try not to do any solo queue unless you want to be tortured by the unfair system. From now on, I will never play solo TG anymore unless I have friends
s invite me to do TG together. And I guess my TG games in future will be much lesser than before because I won’t take solo queue anymore.
50 Games Summary: (updated on 7-Jun-2021)
my favoured map Arabia = 16% (8/50)
Win rate in total = 42% (21/50)
my teammates are solo VS opponents are solo too, win rate = 62% (13/21)
While my games of 8 solo players played together,
My team avg elo over opponets near or over 100 , win rate = 100% (2/2)
Opponets avg elo over my team near or over 100, win rate = 0% (0/4)
all my teammates are solo VS duo / premade team, win rate = 31% (5/16)
I was solo but in the premade team VS premade team, win rate = 42% (3/7)
I was solo but in the premade team vs solo, win rate = 50% (1/2)
Lost due to someone quit the game / afk = 8% (4/50)
Win due to someone quit the game / afk = 0% (0/50)
1. premade team is having the map controlled advantages
They have more ban picks and favoured map votes than solo players, which let them has higher chances to get the map the want. for those solo players who dont do ALT F4, they need to play every type of map normally, while premade team can have more bans and also more votes to their favoured map.
2. premade vs premade, solo vs solo is the only fair way to form a game. Should always matchup between premade vs premade first.
I have already said too much on this. and I hate people keep deny that from their mouth but knows it’s true in the heart.
a. seperate solo and premade elo or queue.
b. when the queue is made, always pick up premade vs premade first, instead of just randomly pick players from the pool, to lower the chance of solo vs premade.
c. letting solo players have option to play against premade or not
d. make some elo matching adjustment if they put solo and premade togther.
3. They need to fix the elo matching, having a 300 ± difference among a 8 solo players pool is totally unacceptable.
someone might think that ±100 elo averagely is just acceptable, if 2500x4 vs 2600x4 it seems fine, but this is just the ideal case, it could be 2500x4 vs 2500x3+2900, could imagine the side vs the 2900 one will be totally screwed up.If they are actually able to balance the team, why we need to accept this unfairness?
4. Smurf. That’s simple to describe, it’s disgusting
5. afk or quitters. No punishment, great!
6. ALT F4. They should fixed this issue with the map pick and ban.
In my 50 games record, I almost play every different map constantly, while I know lots of people will just ALT F4 that because the single ban choice is kind of punishment for solos, while premade have few more ban choices? Does it really sounds fair to you? someone here told me it’s fair, to me this is ■■■■■■■■, 4 premade doesnt mean that they have few more ban choices means fair, it means that premade team only focuz on few maps they want to play and while solo players dont have any agreement with the team and they have to play every single different map.
Lastly, there are full of selfish people here they are not argue with you with reasons, they don’t care fairness and balance of the game. Thought AOE2 players should be generally mature and smarter than the other game’s players but clearly I was wrong. Or they just don’t give a damn on fairness but their own advantages.
I don’t feel any hope of the playerbase of this game anymore, community here is selfish and devs dont care at all.
