Versus mode issue: too many players in team

When I and my friends try to match together for a versus mode game, if we are more than 3 in the team, we can’t play together in arcade or classic mode because we are too many in the team…WHAT?? Why we can’t team up for the Versus mode? Only Coop vs IA or custom game or ranked matches. This is unbelievable for a 2019 game.

If they allow you to party up in 5 you’ll hate it because you’ll get 5 stacks of onyx players who aren’t quite good enough for diamond pub stomping like gears 3, personally I’m fine with it like that but I can see how it deters new players
