Why not make Gotham Divide have 3 types of Que...
Solo Que - No pro tag teams allowed to group here, No grouped friends...just you know, people that que up Solo. *A pro tag player can still enter if he is solo.
Group Que - No pro teams allowed to group here. This mode is for friends who are not on a pro team to group together or for a pro player to group with friends not on there pro team.
Pro Que - Only for pro team groups to go against other pro team groups. Allows a Pro team player can enter in this as a Pro solo player....(example - Maybe only 3 of your team can play that night, the que would give you 2 other pro tag players to fill).
*** How I think this helps people of all skill level and the health of the player base ***
Hi guys, never played a Moba - If they get matched against pro teams in solo que (which happens every night over and over) they will get murdered, and there first experience with IC is a mismatch of skill (through no fault of there own)...This could lead to them leaving IC as they feel powerless against pro players.
Not a Pro - Maybe your like me an have been kicking around the solo que for months, you started of not knowing what a moba is but you like DC characters and have learned the champs, the basic roles, how to build champs, your goals for your lane etc. But like me, your still not a pro player, and pro players will 9 times out of 10 still beat you.
Again you start to feel hopeless against pro players...because no matter what you learn or practice for yourself, they have advantages over you in solo que...(I don't plan to quit, but there have been nights, where I fight 4 or 5 matches in a row against pro teams back to back, and I can't say i had fun in any of them....how long before another game comes along with a better matching system that might draw "Not a pro" players away from IC (*notice the Que times are getting longer as less people play).
I am a PRO don't hate me - You guys are great players. But you guys also have advantages that new and not a pro people can't match most of the time.
1. Voice chat - You can set up tactics and ganks faster and easier than someone typing in a chat box and using pings.
2. Your a well oiled machine - You play together all the time, even if you don't use voice chat, you know what your team mates are going for without even having to talk. You have practiced things over and over that they have become second nature to you in combat.
3. Tactics - I have seen things like the 3 man gank top (even if I live and make to turret) they will have an emp with them. I ping for help but notice mid is dead and jungle is bot. If I stay and defend I feed and die, If I back off to base and heal, that's all the pro team needed to take the first tower with 3 people and emp. A group of random people on my team, will have a much harder time to reach this tactic compared to your team (see points 1 and 2).
4.The entire MF team against my random solo que team...and right off the bat someone on my team goes afk...there went any chance at a win in the first 2 min of the match (not that we had much chance to begin with). Nothing against MF, you guys are great, the point is...You really don't have to worry about an AFK as much as someone like me that just goes in Que solo.
Pro players, with this new match making, will get to go against other pro players. You guys get to test your skills against people near the same skill as you, or maybe even people better than you. This helps you get ready for Tournaments...Wouldn't that be better for you guys, than steam rolling through solo que as murder squad?
When you combine Long Que times...then a mismatch of skill in the match finder...You just get a mess of matches...I play maybe 5 matches a night in prime time and only one of them will be "Fun" (and by fun i mean, match finder managed to match me with other new/ not a pro players on both teams and we have a nice 45 min back forth, where we both take towers and make even trades in team fights, and people can say GG at the end from both sides and actually mean it).
Anyway, please leave some constructive thoughts Maybe this made you think of something better, maybe you really don't like the idea and have valid reason why it would not work out, maybe you don't know what to think, but just agree the match maker sucks...*I mean does anyone actually like it the way it is now* ???
