I’m a re-up 6 or so. And I think I’m a pretty decent player. I got into Onyx (and probably could have gone higher if I had played the mode more), but long story short, I’m not new and I’m not trash.
My first match of Gridiron I played: I got put on a team with 2level ones, 1 level 23, and maybe one level 80 or so. The entire enemy team was full of re-ups 2-20. It was a complete shutout, and I had 3 teammates finish with 0 points across all 6-7 rounds
My second match: I got put on a team with 3 level ones, one level 38, and one re-up 2. All of them except for one guy left. That one guy who stayed, even after the team got repopulated and we got 3 straight rounds, got only 7 points across like 8 or more rounds or so.
My third match was populated as so:
That’s right, didn’t even give them the last 2 players. And when more people finally joined like 95% through the match, this is what happened:
Like, seriously? I could understand once cause this isn’t a official ranked game mode yet, but every match I’ve played so far has been like this. I’m not sure if the team balance is all screwed up because it’s a new game mode, or if it’s the new players from the game pass and free play days, or maybe it’s guests/ new players partying together (if it is, all the more reason party queues should stay limited in ranked, because this precise thing is what causes unbalanced ranked games) but this is awful, for everyone involved. The only benefit I got out of it was an easy 3 stars from the touchdown medal. This needs a looking into imo.
