Listen at the end of the day , the majority new players and current players are solo queuers.

If I was brand new with no XBL friends and jumped into 3v3 solo right now, i could run right smack dab into a champ-onyx-champ combo. At least with a guaranteed solo across the board setup, I could hope for evened offs at the start. And this isn't a ridiculous hypothetical "what if?"; my last match with jedi was him (current onyx and former 3v3 champ), me (current onyx, peak solo onyx 1700) and a guy in his 5th game.Red Shift Nova wrote:There's no need to prove this.

Why can't you just accept that there's just a limit to how far solo-queuing can take you? Not being able to get into champ isn't the game's fault.
Why should high level players in teams suffer long wait times looking for other teams to satisfy people who want to get into champ for playing the game in a sub-optimal manner? There are community competitions for high level players to test their skills, the very best players will do customs against one another rather than searching on ladder
I like playing against other teams for a more interesting game with the chance of better spoils for a win, but I also want to actually get a game in the first place!
Why should lower level teams get constantly creamed in what would end up being a top-heavy playlist? Low level players would have even less reason to team up, which is the opposite of what needs to be encouraged for those players.
Generally, when I jump into a ranked play list, I play to win and try to leave nothing to chance. If you teamed up with Jedi then you would be doing the same, and would both benefit in terms of ranking and enjoyment. Even in a solo-queue playlist there would be a strong element of chance and you would end-up having to do the same rush strats.
You both clearly want to do well and get good games. I don't get why you don't just team up together? Maybe then you'll get more contentious games against the likes of me and Sup3riorArs3nal - who are similar ranks to you guys. It really is a lot more fun than solo queuing! I solo queued a lot when I first got the game - no one I knew had bought it. I eventually got into Onyx and realized that to get further I had to cheese - like proper cheddar cheese my opponents, which at first gets boring and then starts to not work. I realized then that to have more fun I needed to team up. Even if there was a solo queue playlist, would it really change your play-style? Or would you just do the same thing through fear of your team mates not being very good? I know I would! The best (and most fun) games are when you combine certain leaders in good team work. Solo queuing takes away one of the best parts of the in-game experience.
When they’ll end up playing these coordinated teams on a regular and get destroyed within the 5 minutes of the game they’ll quit and play another game. A lot of new solo queuers won’t touch 1v1 because they aren’t comfortable enough yet to play alone because they haven’t learned the strategies so they go to team war or ranked modes.
It’s not enjoyable for me and others because of the disadvantage. ( I truly love the game and I only want to see if there is improvements that can be made). So atleast make it fair ?
Again some players prefer soloing because either they don’t have enough time to search For friends or they simply just prefer it. Why should their experience be less enjoyable than coordinated MLG pro players. (These players thrive off winning 20 games in a row . And trust me i know it’s fun when you’re teamed up and you win that’s many.
Now imagine the 3v3 party only game modes , if it’s well promoted and executed by 343 ...the possibilities are endless. (Clan tags along with actual intense epic battles, live streams..both teams would be actually coordinated). This mode would encourage for me and others to actually go out and try to form a team and there would actually be a purpose. Kind of Rocket League ? League of Legends ?
the reason why these parties teams do custom games against others partied teams is because they wont lose there rank. Once they are done with the custom games they go back to 3v3 and just dominate.
-I don’t see why 343 wouldn’t have tournaments or announcements that show in the main menus interface.its not user friendly at all.Nobody knows about anything that’s going on unless you come on this website. (The majority of players who comment on these forums are people who have experienced this game for a long time.-
Right now in the current state this game is it will slowly hurt the average solo players....and within a year you’ll lose these players for good. Guaranteed.
