I know @TC_Clown made a thread but I don’t want to highjack that one. I want to explain a little more the why’s behind these things in the titles.
Stacks don’t matter. It’s a flip argument honestly. Do stacks have am advantage? They can. I’d say the percent of them winning is more than randoms, but it’s not a guarantee honestly. What people get upset about is when you go up against a well oiled team who just cross you out or pin you down. Which still happens with randoms as well. We all know how to play this game once you get past a gold 3 level. At least typically.
2 man parties vs 4 and 5 man’s or tdm and king. The main idea behind 2 man parties was because people were tired of being pinned down in spawn by that well oiled machine. This “fix” actually didn’t fix anything at all and this still happens. Sometimes it’s better to leave a game as is and not listen to the Karen’s of the world. Its a give and take with this because you all know nobody is sitting there and saying:
" you know guys we have them pinned in spawn, so let’s back off" when they have found the tables are turned. That’s just not how this game has ever been played. You crush your enemies with righteousness.
I made a comment to @SnubbS the other day in another thread. He likes 2 man parties, but he also likes weird music and French films.
My comment was it was more enjoyable because I was playing the game with him. Playing this game by yourself is typically boring. Video games typically are meant to be played with friends. Unless you are playing something like God of War or some fancy single player game. Are you always going to have people who prefer to play alone? Yes, even I do that sometimes but freedom on how you play a game matters. I should have the option to play alone or with up to 4 people.
Which brings me to 4 vs 5 teams. The logic was to make the game more tactical, which wasn’t really honest. Either you play the game this way already or you play the other ways. Support, power weapons, or shotgun fests…the other logic I think was to match the tuning they pushed out. It’s slower therefore let’s make the game slower to match this tuning.
It wasn’t really thought through honestly. 4 man teams didn’t really change much., but they won’t comment on player base so who knows at this momen.
Anyways back to parties. It’s fun, it’s fun to joke, and chat about things as you play the game. It makes the game faster paced believe it or not. Everyone or one or two because why talk if you have a mic…?
Everyone calling things out and when to rotate or to move where and why. The joy of winning with your team vs winning by yourself. I do enjoy a good high five with myself. Who doesn’t feel like a winner doing that? Right @Aloha_its_Kyle?
Anyways I don’t expect much. This wasn’t a whining about the tuning thread or whatever. We all know we’re we stand.
Just some thoughts I had and felt like typing out.
