tap, by level I mean equal chances once the eight players are selected. I make no predictions about the subsequent player team assignments.
Heck if seven veterans and a one noob enter, one team is screwed...

Sounds to me like the OP is butt hurt he will find himself playing against other organised parties.

There's nothing worse when playing alone; coming up against a party if four with mikes who clearly know each other and are talking.

You know you've lost the game before it even starts.

I'm lending a friend my copy of the last of us and hoping when I get it back that mercenary mode will be released :smileyhappy::smileyhappy:

There is no reason for someone to NOT want this added to the game unless they pubstomp.... Hoodlum I've read quiet a few of your posts before but this one....you have NO good reason. Splitting player pool is a silly arguement 

 

I am a solo player myself, not terribly good but decent. Maybe you need to see it from both sides. about 70% of my matches are unfair for one side or the other. Sometimes its unfair for my side, againest a party of 4 where they are healing/rezzing CONSTANTLY while I BEG for even a rez from my side. This usually ends with a score around 12+ to 0. 

 

Then there has been quiet a few times where I have been the "4th wheel" (lol cannot think of a better word) where I have joined a party of 3, turned on my mic and played bandage/rez loadout and we steamroll the full pub. 

 

Both of these examples are not fun. I want to play the 30% that is fair and competitive. I think adding this mode will make my overall fairness experience more even.

Still though, team balancing needs to be improved somehow... many people complained about that in UC3 MP.

They need to make this snappy.

 

Game is impossible to play alone.

Exactly. It should be added. Sure, it doesn't go without consequence but for those that play alone, it's impossible.

It allows you to play in games where parties aren't allowed.
