    Default Full party team only play list !

    Hey guys don't normally make threads but I have a great idea .

    5 or 4 player full party only play list. For team death match / execution.

    I don't know about you guys but I'm getting a little bored of team death match rank especially the fact that most games I get are against a team full of randies.

    And when theirs another party searching soon as they pick up one player then they line up with randoms and so do I, when we could have both went against each other and let all the randoms versus each other.

    I say let the randoms play with randoms and make it easier on full party try hards to find a decent game. I propose epic make a entirely new play list strictly for if you only want to play against full parties, suck as 4v4 or 5v5. Don't get me wrong though full parties can still search against randoms in regular play list.

    And actually show the amount of players searching . So we at least know if there are any full parties lookin for a game. Game search would be a lot Quicker too since you instantly find a full party, as full parties already have enough of a hard time finding a game and only picking up the left over randoms. I imagine the try hards in clans and such who mostly play private gb would come out in the open too more often to show up other crews.
    And who knows maybe in the future have a whole leader boards for crews or whatever .

    Make playlist that restricts you to a full team, or make playlist where randoms can all play with each other... Which is easier and makes more sense?

    Probably the Stranded playlist they already made. Yeah, gonna go with that one.

    Again with this thread, really.


    Team game.
    Epic will never, ever, ever restrict a party to a single playlist.

    End.

    I believe this is called Ranked, but I don't see many teams go there anymore...

    Did you read the OP? He said it would be nice for full parties to play against full parties when they wanted too. (quick matchmaking, less quitting) So you could still go Pubstomping if you couldn't handle fair games anyway.

    While i have zero interest in playing Gow 3 competitively the way it currently is designed, i think this is a great idea for teams that want to actually test their mettle against other organized teams, rather than just owning a bunch of "randies" as the OP referred to them.

    It would also probably be a better testing ground for strategies and tactics to use in GB games or Lan Tourneys.

    Another benefit to this idea, is that it becomes difficult for some stacked teams to even find matches outside of Ranked TDM/KOTH and Execution.

    I would propose an additional feature that allowed the teams to each vote for their preferred gametype. The most popular choice between the two teams would be the gametype you play. If it is a tie then you get 1 revote if it is still a tie than you play a TDM match.

    This would help make it possible to play other assorted games instead of only TDM/KOTH and Execution.

    I understand what you mean. When I used to play with my clan, we would be constantly cancelling and restarting the matchmaking process in order to instantly connect to a full 5 of players, rather than letting randoms load up one at a time.

    But I do think this is a really good idea. Although, there would still be a number of full teams that would still search for randoms. It's sad, but it's the truth.

    A playlist for full teams only sounds like a pretty win/win situation for all. People who search by themselves get to have a portion of the full team population disappear. And full teams can be matched up against other full teams.

    Another thread with a broken, biased poll. There are not nearly as many full teams as you all think. Itsca waste of a playlist.
