First off, See below for reference.
Now that we all know what I am talking about. I want to say first that this IS a welcome change. I am grateful that you are willing to give groups a little bit of leeway on what they run. This is a good thing that can only improve matchmaking.
However, I resent that you have demonstrated that you have zero clue what Flex actually means. This is not a flex system. This is a fill system. If you gave people the freedom to swap roles mid match then this would qualify. However, This is choosing your role(s) before the game and getting assigned one.
Pretty much just like solo queue.
Please consider allowing groups to at the very least do the following:
- Allow players to choose their role AFTER they join a match.
- Allow players to elect to swap roles mid match.
Edit: Clarification. The ability to swap would be under the same restrictions as what you can queue as per the ptr notes.
Please consider these as an option. Thanks.
