Re: Honor among decent/good players

Apr 28, 2013

Well I used to have a loudout called "backup", with the M9 RoF, Bargain & QB, but I realised that I never used it.

Do you feel me?

Look, if you have like 4000 wins and 10 losses then you are a big part of what is wrong with this game. You know **bleep** well that the only way you and your buddies are even going to have a remotely challenging match is if you run into another large party of good players, and many of these parties will back out of the lobby when that happens because they don't want to mess up their stats.

 

I do think it's dishonorable to go into the matchmaking knowing full well that you're simply going to destroy almost everyone you meet because your team will be so overwhelming. I don't have a good solution to the problem other than introducing some kind of mercenary switch that lone wolfs can use to only be matched up against other lone wolfs, because I don't think you should remove the option of being able to play with your friends.


I think I've said it once before somewhere, everyone has the right to be able to play in a party with their friends. Even if thier friends are tryhards that care about their stats. If you play the game and keep getting stomped by parties of 5 well then thats just your bad luck.

 

Also a mercenary mode will never work in Uncharted 3 since the player pool is rather small as it is. Im sure everybody would play in this mode which would then mess up the experience for players that like to have fun with their friends.

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

I think a mercenary switch would work just fine. Most players don't play in a party so if anything it would be all the people who play in parties that will have trouble finding a match. Splitscreen noobs can stick to TTDM where they belong.


Yeah thats exactly what I said, its not fair to people who play in a party is it?

Like I already said:

Mercenary mode: Either not fair for parties, or lack of it is not fair for solo players.

One group would either have to suck it up and get over it, and the other group would just go tight ahead be arses about the whole deal.

I'd prefer no parties. When did games become Facebook? That's just me though.

We have different timezones. Yoko is notsoalt. FFA isn't Merc TDM since technically you can call it 7vs1.

If they brought out a no-party mode the playerpool would grow again.  Most people left this game because large parties dominate, and most parties are too chicken to play against eachother.

Large party players are obviously against the idea, because they'd find themselves with no one to play against except other parties.  Can't handle what could be a balanced match.

^ You realize you might as well remove party mode for COMP, correct? Nobody sane would go solo against parties.
