Well you can sit and wait for an hour and by the time your team gets there all the other teams have stopped queuing. or you can nut up and just queue with what you got.

I guess some of us like to play video games and the rest like to sit around and wait to play video games. To each their own...

Think it's better to say everybody likes to have a chance to win, even if it means waiting awhile for some people. If you only had the option to take people that are awful in rateds and practically guarantee a loss, would you?

You hit the nail on the head, otherwise people would be consistently throwing hodge podges together from general chat.

It's kinda sad that it takes so much effort just to have a fun match in rated.

IF MAYBE people could put their egos aside and not have to roll an "A team" every time they queue for rateds, maybe more people would be throwing together random groups, or less than ideal guild groups. That goes for both sides, not pointing fingers at any specific teams/people.
Just my opinion, but for what is considered "preseason"(whatever BW means by that), people take this way too seriously. We all play to have fun, lighten up, not everybody needs to roll the same team make up every time they queue up.
This is obviously a biased opinion because I'm a dps scoundrel. lol

But still... once it is "regular season" or cross server rated is ever introduced, then I will say form your uber groups and try to be the best. Bragging rights might actually mean something then.

Well, considering I'm on the team. I would say yes. ID has no problem taking awful people in.

That's the same mentality that brought us (refering to normal wz now):
*The backfill mechanic
*Premades vs pugs
*No class, or other, criterias

Things that IMO only are ruining matchmaking and have plagued all genres of multiplayer games for a decade now. I'd rather wait an hour for a good match than play four horrible ones in that time.

This is why I'm leveling on impside as well so I can play ranked on 2 different sides. So when theres no one on pubs I can go imp. Atleast ill have a better shot at playing with good players on both sides instead of sitting around waiting for good players to log on
