TL;DR – I think BGs would benefit from a queue system that matches grouped players (premades) against other grouped players, and solo players against other solo players. If you feel the same way, I encourage you submit a suggestion in-game (click Help Request > Submit a Suggestion).
Longer Version –
I frequently see posts on these forums asking for changes in ways that aren’t the most constructive. If you take a look at the “Submit Suggestion” ticket in-game, it asks for three things: 1) Which part of the gameplay is your suggestion about? 2) What specific problem are you trying to fix? 3) How do you think this could be improved in a fun and fair way? I’d like to start a constructive conversation along those lines.
1. What part of the gameplay is your suggestion about?
2. What specific problem are you trying to fix?
Organized players (premades) fighting unorganized players (solo) creates an unequal playing field that sometimes results in players not being able to actively participate in BGs. This scenario occurs when the organized players box the opposing team into a single graveyard/point, preventing them from trying for objectives.
I’m going to avoid commenting on how frequently this situation occurs, since none of us really know. We only have our own anecdotal experiences to go on. It happens enough to be a discussion point, and I think there is one thing we should all be able to agree on: everyone should be able to participate in a BG.
3. How do you think this could be improved in a fun and fair way?
I think this could be improved by a queue system that matches grouped players against other grouped players, and solo players against other solo players. I think this would satisfy the requirements of being both “fun” and “fair” as it would allow everyone to actively participate in the BG (fun) and match players against other players who are similarly organized (fair).
This would be similar to what some other online games have done. For example, in DotA2 the matchmaking system places grouped players against other grouped players of the same number (or as close to it as possible) and fills in the remaining spots with solo players as necessary.
Thanks for reading. If you feel the same way – make a suggestion in-game!
