Please bring back 8v8 hot join as the standard and fully rewarding game mode. No spectating, no team switching, no queue.
I had so much fun with Snowball Mayhem, I realized how much I miss that casual 8v8 PvP experience. I used to play it every day.
Unfortunately, a number of factors culminated the end of the "Play Now" hot join scene, starting with The Esports Push of Olde:
(Un)ranked is a terrifying experience. It locks you into a room of scrutiny and pressure with no way out. The intense environment harbors and promotes pain and misery which gets projected onto others (a phenomenon referred to as "toxicity").
I miss Snowball Mayhem. But I miss hotjoin even more.
