Kuma.1503 Posted September 2, 2021 Share Posted September 2, 2021 (edited) Terrible matchmaking. He expressed frustration at constantly fighting people well above his skill level. Afks in every other game. Since he's new and generally doesn't perform well, our teamates often take it upon themselves to flame him and leave. There needs to be actual pentalties for leaving a game 5 man premades vs 3 man premades. This heavily rigs the match in favor of the 5 man group. I remember Riot Games releasing statistics about this in the past for league of legends. On average a 3 man premade + 2 man premade won 30% of the time vs a full 5 man premades. He comes from league which has something resembling good matchmaking, so these problems (and more) unfortunately didn't leave a good impression on him. Thankfully he is willing to stick it out with us, but he made it clear that if he didn't have friends to play with, he would not put up with PvP in this game. The new player experience is paramount when it comes to maintaining the longevity of your game. I understand that poor matchmaking is a necessary evil to some extent, but there should be a stronger bias towards even matches as opposed to quicker queues. Afks should be properly penalized for repeat offenses. A slap on the wrist (Dishonor for 15 minutes) is not enough to prevent people from doing it again.
