Deleted Teams but Allowed Duo Q


Last Crab.6054

Recommended Posts

Why?

Why 2, and not 3...or 4....or 5?

Why only duo?

Play with friends, got 4 friends, so?

Duo q has unique properties that allows it to game the system.

This was proven beyond a shadow of a doubt when duo q was removed for those above 1600, back when players could regulary reach 1800+....which oddly went away in duo q..NA had zero.

But, duo q allows you to control the team rating, and your opponents.

If you are somewhat patient, you can multibox another duo into the team, and just have one leave if the duo doesnt end up on the other team, or it works with syncing on off hours too.

The stuff didnt work in solo only queue above that rating, but to be fair it should be removed altogether.

It really seems like Anet only listens to a very small amount of friends players when making pvp decisions.

Which ultimately has been terrible for the game.

Players where asking for solo queue since forever. There was a vote but you could only choose between duo queue or no change (queue up to 5) when I remember right. Technically Anet could claim players voted for duo queue. In reality solo queue was never an option to choose from. Now without competitive game mode it doesn't matter anyway I guess.

The poll was even worse than it seems

Anet completely ignored the fact that all the fake, do nothing 'top players' will always vote in favor of imbalanced teams like duoq, and pretty much all of them have alt accounts or access to other people's accounts. Game, main site, and forum accounts are linked so that means voting multiple times.

Another thing was how close that poll was. It was nearly 50-50 slightly in favor of duoq. In OSRS where they poll potential changes to players; it takes at least a 75% majority vote for a change to go through, because they understand how stupid it is to add a feature that half of the playerbase might not want and risk dividing the already anemic population in 2. But given the first thing and stats posted from Ben P showing close to 90% of pvp players only soloq even with the option to duoq, it's probably closer to a 1 - 4 split in favor of the manipulative minority.

People chose duo q, and now they don't want it, cause they can't make friends.

Most players solo q,  irc, the numbers were in the 90s%.

Removing DUO would be only detectable by whines of forum alts saying "wanna pway wif frenz"....

Also, the LB would definitely be shook just like it was last time.
