  • The solo q question

    Why cant there be a filter to when searching for a game as a solo q specifically, to only find a game where everyone is a solo q? Just add a extra tick box for the players who wants a game like that. Coz currently being put with a 3 man party and one other solo q againts a 5man party is really not fair. And ye this happens alot.

    There used to be a feature like this.
    No idea why it was removed but I would love to see it return as well.

      They removed it because that divides the pool of players. Which increases search times and also potentially makes them reduce the balance of games in order to achieve faster search times.

      However I agree with you, a 3-4 man party with 1-2 randoms is not fair or balanced vs a 5 man party.

      And particularly playing as solo with a 4 man party is a nightmare, they rarely communicate with the solo player and tend to blame and gang on him
      Make a NON automated report system.
      I would rather wait 10 minutes for a balanced, fun and exciting match that will last 1+ hours. Than wait 10 seconds for a poorly balanced crapmatch that will end in 30- minutes
      Valve, How I'm I supposed to respect certain boundaries to prevent a mute if I dont know them because they are different for each and every person on each and every game I play?
      The only type of player that dislikes having his stats public are the players that suck and cheaters

        increase search times? but if the tick box is there for me to only find a game with other solo q then its my decision and i accept the long wait time with it?

        divide the pool of players? so this forces me to go into a random party from one of the chatrooms and potentially sit with a bunch of douchebags in a game?

        The balance of games is not there if u are vs a 5man stack? So it is already broken.

        My suggestion will at least give me the satisfaction of "choosing" what type of opponent i want to play against and not get a algorithm to decide that for me. ive lost about 20games and won 4 over the weekend. Mostly due to the "balance" that the algorithm think it got right.

        5 bad players > 2-3 avg + 2 badplayers.

        Dont take away our freedom of choice in a fun game. Because this is ruining the game for me.

        I am even at a point to pay to get me into a lower bracket of players so I can at least enjoy the game.

          I hate having games thrown when I'm solo queuing because of two imbeciles. Removing solo queue option was a backwards move. I'm more than happy to wait extra for a better match.
