Being I have stopped taking this game seriously when it comes to Storm league due to the lack of changed needed for this game. I decided to run a bit of an experiment. Normally I would never solo que in this game and this season I have done nothing but that. The last I wanna say 4 seasons in this game I have finished Mid to upper diamond in ranked as a support main.
This season I started Diamond 4 after losing all 3 of my placement games. I have solo qued for 70+ some games and have lost 48 of them. The stories I could go on about with players refusing to soak lanes, engaging 1v3 or more, fighting lvl 8 vs lvl10. Never doing camps, arguing in chat. I am sure the list goes on.
Out of these 70 games cause I open whispers after each game to double check to see if the enemy team were premades or not. 39 of these games were against premades of some sort.
Solo que in this game is just unplayable at any rank. Yes we all know GMs can climb so for some reason that makes it so everyone can climb cause the top 1% of the game is able to do it…
Point being is solo que needs to revert back to the way it was before. No more premades of any sort in Storm league. It needs to go back to hero league and team league. Yes there is a smaller player base, yes the que times are gonna go up. I would much rather wait 20 mintues for a decent match than 4 minutes for a game you have no chance of winning.
To any of the players hardstuck in any rank from bronze to diamond. The only way to climb in this game is premade. Get a solid 3+man group in this game, make sure you have a strong carry and focus on keeping them alive and its doable. If you continue to solo que in this game nothing is gonna happen. Best of luck to everyone out there. I sadly am tossing in the flag on this game until its fixed.
To anyone who wishes to see this games and see the nonsense I had talked about. Add me at Hunterbees#1622 and i will log in sometime and let you watch as many of these troll games as you wish.
Update 2/5/21. So I have went back to what I said I was gonna do. I refused to solo que in this game and while I have not gotten to play as many games as before due to waiting for team mates to be online and such. I have gotten roughly 45-50ish more games in and I have won around 35+ of them more. It was clear to me in many games the enemy team had a potato doing such things as refusing to soak. Split pushing lanes at the wrong time with the wrong hero or just missing from the map so I had to assume they were afk.
This game is just unplayable right now like this. The number of people who do not understand basic game play at the rank they are is just mind blowing. Mix that with player just out right trolling or afking games for no reason.
