    I hugely support tagged players splitting up! It's a lot more fun to get a random team

    The irony is that the Tags were given away like free samples during that whole name change thing. Not saying its a bad thing, but when the line between "pro" and "tagged amateurs" isn't clear for a new player; the hope gets lost on new players, despite having a chance to beat the majority of tagged players. I remember the struggles to get your name changed to a tag back in the day, there was a line, but these days 5 friends who aren't even trying to compete can get tagged. Meaning a new player sees some acronym and thinks, oh snap, these guys are better than us. Which isn't necessarily the case.

    Given your rather constant attacks on people who point out its impossible to learn while getting stomped its not immature is asking you to verify your "skill"

    A good example of being unable to learn from a stomp is a few months back i think it was celes and some streamers who did a complete troll gd with a TANK cyborg with no dps gear a PD superman with no AD gear an AD ivy cant remember the other 2 but the troll build as well and completely dominated the pug they ended up against.

    Turbine knows about this and there are supposed to be some fixes coming in Sept. Exactly how they will fix this issue I don't know but they are well aware of the problem. You are not the first or will be the last one to have this issue.

    How funny. Having just explained how hard it is to play against a pre-made you offer to make a pre-made with him...

    Nice to offer though and I hope he takes it up.

    1st, of troll building in a 5man premade is something i find very disrespectful, I just see it as the premades putting the enemy team down even further, as if they're saying, "we don't even need to try to beat you" hence why i wouldn't do it.

    Second I don't go premade with the same people over and over, I generally get randomly invited and I've gone into groups of random people whom I randomly got added by, I don't mind grouping with a random group of people, as long as they don't invite me for the sole reason to be carried, I'm fine with it, and if they have a really good attitude towards advice, even better. So I'll close my comments here, whoever wants to add me and group with me, be my guest, and if you're really that desperate to try me, go ahead dan, add me and we'll see.
