|ANYONE PLZ HOW MECH?!|
Now, the previous matchmaker wasn't perfect either. It was full of premades, meta lances, tryhards, stomps and some beginners peppered in here and there. . . but at least it also had MechWarriors with decent amount of experience and competence at this game. I didn't feel like "Shit, I have to play my best to make up for our flamer Atlas", I could trust the rest of my team to make decent positioning and build choices. Unbelievable but, they even read the chat, shared scouting information and contributed to our tactics. Yes, it was rough and annoying, but it was also challenging. All it needed was some kind of premade balancing and class matching, that's what I hoped 4x3 would bring.
It's really unfortunate. Now, we have weight and class matching, but in order to have that, stricter Elo matching had to be sacrificed. I keep hearing that the group queue is really brutal now, so looks like I will have to group up when I actually want to be challenged.
