Anyway. Sony, ND won't take out parties. Sony's whole thing now is making PS more social. We even have Facebook integration, for crying out loud.

Honestly, dude, just quit a match if you don't like it. You can suck up and take a loss, parties can suck up and realize matchmaking takes longer if you're a well-oiled team. Simple.

So because I don't party up that means I'm lonley right? I guess that goes for the thousands of other players that are "lone wolfs." Yeah, seems legit. I'm not saying remove the parties, I'm just saying balance the team. No reason why 5 40,000+ KDR try hards should be going against 4 negatives and one positive. It's unfair to everyone and it just makes you sick how these parties will kill you. They run in packs just tyring to protect each other. What's even funnier is when they teams is balanced and they see they can't dominate they're like "back out, back out." Haha

I feel your frustration. I don't like playing in parties of 5. it's boring. You'll hardly ever run into another party and when you do, it's so rare when the other party stays for the whole match if they are getting destroyed. Worst thing I've seen rise up lately is that they'll quit during the lobby, which is RIDICULOUS. I've partied up in a party of 5 plenty of times and most of the time, you'll just face off against noobs or people that suck. Rarely will you play against decent players. When you lone wolf it up, you'll face parties after parties and get stuck with the most unbalanced teams. There is just no win-win situation in these scenarios, at least for me.


Parties of 2 or 3 is where it's at for me. It's enjoyable even if you get people that suck in your team and a challenge at the same time because you can't always rely on the randoms placed on your teams. It makes the game less boring and more exciting to me than being in a five man party.

 

I have to say, I'm kind of grateful to have friends who will handicap themselves whenever we face off against noobs and are in a party of 5 ourselves so that we don't ruin the other player's experience. We'll make up rules like TAU sniper only so that they may stand a chance and actually kill us because honestly, who cares how much you die in Objective games!? It's a nice gesture in my opinion. Too bad most parties don't do this!

Some of ya'll who are complaing about Party of 5 are exaggerating. I don't think ND needs to change anything Try Hards are in every MP, they play in Party's & that's just the reality of things.

You can always leave a match if you don't like what you're up against you're not forced to play it.

You don't get it do you.  If a party of 5 is in the matchmaking system it skews the hell out of teams.  All it takes is a couple random noobs and the random team loses.  Not only that but organized teams are always ready to go at the beginning of matches.  They are ready to grab those power weapons and go to town.  Randoms are sporratic.  Sometimes it takes a good 5 seconds for a random to get going into the match.

 

It's ridiculous and there needs to be a mode for parties of 5 to remedy this matchmaking problem.

^ exactly. Me, I'm solo most of the time. I know when the **bleep**'s hit the fan. There's no point staying on a lopsided game. Screw my stats. I'm not having fun anymore.

I meant to zidane. Merc mode/parties only mode will hurt the player pool.

There are two main reasons that I play UC3 mp comp almost exclusively in a party:

 

  1. To have a fighting chance against laggers and cheaters.  I do like to win but if the match is fair, getting beaten by a better team is only going to improve my play and I may learn something.  My friends and I generally start a match simply trying to have fun but if we're up against tryhards and they're spamming power weapons, spawn killing, double/triple teaming, blindfiring and every other trick in the book, we knuckle down and try to hand them a loss - there is nothing more satisfying.  And if we lose, then we move on.
  2. To have a good time with friends.  BTW, that ain't crap!  Personally, I've friended people that I enjoy playing with because they have my back and I genuinely like them!  We spend a fair amount of time in the lobby just talking.

Having said that, I understand your frustration.  I felt much the same way when I first started playing comp (I was mainly a coop player and still am).  ND is not going to change anything for UC3...that's why I adapted.  Ranked and Casual matches might help the issue but please don't take away parties!  ...especially in future games.
