I'll fly Imperial side every night for the next week, how's that? I fly usually around 8:30-10 EST. then later from maybe 11-12 or 1AM EST.

part of the issue is with premade garbage. Now I'm new at the game, I suck. I know it. You know it. I need time to get the awareness, the flying down, the nuances of power-up spawn timers, the whole jazz. That'll come, if I keep playing this.
But above else what kills the wish to do so is a 4 man gank squad on the enemy team, or my team to be truthful, roflstomping everyone else. In voice of some kind, with maxed out ships, focus firing us to the point where the first time I notice I've been targeted is the death timer.

You guys want games too, I get it. This is your jam, your cup o tea. But we can both agree, I would hope, that sealclubbing newbie players or partial afkers isn't fun in the least. I see names like Dracolich, know what I immediately do? Stop queuing. When a Deathmatch is 70+ percent finished because of one group of 4 in a 12 person match, with a KDR of perhaps 5 deaths among the lot, it doesn't entice anyone in the losing team to stick to it. Just means that GSF queue is done for the next few hours. This is doubly so if I get the elusive double premades on the enemy team. Those are always fun.
I have no idea what the population of GSF truly is, but I know it is small. There are names out there I have started recognising as problematic. My teammates notice too, as it tends to lead to quitting or ************ in the ops group. Above all else, what I really want is a tier system that bloody well works. Put newbs together, put aces together. Everyone has fun matches, we get experience, you get an exciting time everyone is happy. Why should a player that has an experience total of 27k exp earned from missions (including the 25k from the 1 time bonus) be matched against anyone with 10 million experience earned?

I've been hearing this for over a decade across all games, and for the entire history of GSF.

Q still pops tho

Sorry for misspelling his name, not my intention.

it's Vae Victis, Not victus. that I simply put up because it entertains me. Yes, I lost and stopped playing for a bit. Congratulations?
Is my point moot because I decide that being frustrated for two hours is not worth the bother? Roflstomps are boring. The ones that enjoy them are those that are afk farming for quick pops. Domination goes fastest with 3 caps. If you yourself enjoy them, go wild, but it is a snorefest for other aces, I am sure, and it frustrates newbs to no end. Better matchmaking, premades vs. premades. Please, something that stops a player like me with a KDR of .6 or so, from running into an ace on my fourth match.
Finally, on the last point you bring up, my meaning with that was that personally, I myself, and guildmates of mine that are also solo queuing, stop queuing for a few hours while the aces get their kill fix. I'm not saying you are killing the game by killing us. I have no metrics on that. Queues are still popping, for now, as you say. I'm not quite as positive on the speed of pops after you folks do a few matches, but as I'm not among the one's waiting in the queue at that point, I'll take your word that it is just as fast as your first match.

ty, corrected.

I mean, yes. Whether you play or not is not up to me as your opponent. My job as your opponent is to fight as hard as possible, without mercy, to win as hard as possible. If you are beaten so hard that you don't queue, I mean, I consider that a complement.

Mostly yea. You phrased it like "I'm going home and taking the queue with me!" If you and your friends don't want to play against competition, that's your choice, and nothing I do will ever change that. Nor is changing that anyone's responsibility or anything.

I enjoy almost every GSF game, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion on what they like. Heck probably no one even controls what they prefer in any meaningful way.

Unlike Verain, I don't much enjoy roflstomps (going either way), unless I'm roflstomping Verain. Then I enjoy it.

Did you know that you can make your own premade? It's like build-a-bear, except it's build-a-premade. This may help. https://discord.gg/xAmkEV
