Listen I have no problem losing. I do it all the time! I’m playing Control competitive solo and its maybe the worst solo multiplayer experience I’ve played in a while.
There is no way that 4 stacks should be getting matched up with a team of solo’s. Just shouldn’t happen. No disrespect to people who 4 stack or just play with their friends, you aren’t the problem. The problem is the matchmaking. Every other game i get into I’m against a 4 stack , with maybe a duo and solos typically on my team. Majority of the time we get dominated.
Again, losing isn’t my problem. But it just feels pretty lopsided in this situation 90% of the time. I’ve beaten stacks on occasion, often get really good solo teammates and we can win. This is rare though. The stack situation just makes me not want to play anymore. Its never a good close match, always shutout.
I’d love too see an update to have 4 stacks only match 4 stacks, its madness not to have this. I know population and matching times are rough in this stage of the game, but i would happily take less playlists or longer queues if i could even toggle out of playing full stacks. Its killing thee fun for me anyway, dunno if anyone even agrees.
Fwiw: I love the new 4v4 Control mode. Matches are way better paced and the bigger hills make a match more dynamic.
Either way I’m taking a break from Gears after 3 or sop matches in a row against stacks, thanks for reading!
