Well this thread and any logic it may have had was ruined when the OP turned out to be disrespectful and ignorant...
Yeah. I would've gone with a 3-member party limit (which should be enough to go Co-op, but not enough to keep a match one-sided), but goddamn, he's cockier than a freaking revolver.
I can't really say much that hasn't already been covered, but I'll add my perspective as someone who nearly always plays lone wolf:
You never know how a match against parties will turn out. Yesterday, I ended up quitting (which I rarely do), simply because the party was completely overwhelming everyone and it was just pointless to lose 10-50. On the other hand, I've ended up matched with randoms against 3-5 person parties, and we actually forced the party members to rage quit because we worked so well as a team and we were ruining their precious stats. So satisfying!
It can go either way. So if play with your friends if you want to have fun-- I don't care! You'll either beat me or you won't. For me it's the ND matchmaking system that is f**king things up, not people who like to play in parties.
Sigh, all parties aren't good, but most are. I've played against many bad parties that you could tell just played together because they are friends. Heck I've played in such parties myself where it was me and a bunch of co-op friends that all have a negative KDR and WLR. Such parties are actually awesome to be in or play against because I can appreciate a team that lacks in individual skill but makes up for it by having great teamwork. You can't even compare those parties to the standard clan parties or all-star teams where people just invite anyone who have good stats though.
Lately I've found myself on the same side as these parties (late joins when some got removed or rage quit) and it's just too easy to get a good score. I've gone 10-0 and similar in several matches without even getting shot at and in one match on Fort I went 2-0 and simply couldn't find anyone to kill lol.
The team balancing is a joke. I just ran into a party of four with these stats:
41979 kills/6760 deaths --- 2270 wins/746 losses
16702 kills/7469 deaths --- 1586 wins/330 losses
15527 kills/4467 deaths --- 1161 wins/234 losses
6197 kills/2041 deaths -- 691 wins/317 losses
Everyone else in the lobby have negative stats except me, so naturally I end up on the same team as the party and we end up winning 50-7. Only two players from the other team stayed the entire match and who can blame them considering they were getting shot from all corners of the map. The funny thing is that this party would've been absolutely destroyed by many of the other parties I run into on a daily basis.
Well I played a match just now where I joined late against four !RRE players. It ended with me being the last player left on my team and I left when all of them came after me with every power weapon available. Seriously, you're playing 4 vs 1 and you need to hunt me with power weapons lol? You're a bunch of cowards... I still went positive.
but goddamn, he's cockier than a freaking revolver.
OMFG bad joke.
i agree theres no team balancing in UC3 when you see A full team of 75's with mic and you end up with noobs of 15's or F2P players you know you gonna lose i used to moan about it but now i dont care i just camp or use cheap tactics like revenge or M9rof or bargain since it will make the game more fair or just camp in yemen and syria with the tbolt .
i used to get very angry when you gun fighting someone and his team mate join you have no chance this happened to me some noobs of my team mates were team killing eachother and suiciding and me fighting against the other team if they call themselves good player why they dont play on your own instead of calling your friends to back you up ? thats not fair all other games such as COD ect... have much more team balancing im playing far cry3 online and its way much better you dont go negative unless if your a noob the teams are well split
anyway i stoped playing TDM cause its useless and start playing plunder , team objective , free for all , classic they are the best
