Well I would hope a partial pre-made would win against a most likely full pug team.
Also, not everyone likes to deathmatch Carth. Some people still believe in objective points. It's easy to hit high numbers when you've got others to back you up.
Nah, it seems to be a general lack of awareness as well. It got so bad in a Novare that I set my slinger down directly in front of the panel and told my team that I will stop any cap, but any imp that is out of my range or los is entirely their problem.
