Lately unranked is almost unplayable. People leave every game, people accidently queuing for unranked when they wanted to play ranked and throwing, people telling the other team in all chat where the last person is and where they are going.
Then you have the issues of people screaming over their mics, racism, toxic behavior, people are already aware of these issues obviously.
My suggestions to helping curve this behavior are fairly straightforward and simple:
- Boot people will tons of valid reports for awful behavior out of the closed beta.
- Implement a commendation system so good teammates and positive players end up queued with others that are also highly commended.
- Apply this system across the board so that peoples conduct in unranked games also carries with them into ranked games. If someone is throwing unranked, screaming into their mic, spamming racial slurs etc let other players be able to report them and have them filter into the bottom feeders even in their ranked games so this behavior punishes them accordingly.
Overall this game has serious promise but if you do not curve the throwing and toxic behavior it's going to have long term negative effects that could ruin it. A commendation system that puts positively reviewed players together and stacks negatively reviewed players together at least ensures those of us not acting toxic don't end up with people that are.
Also keep in mind this is my overall opinion on playing so far queuing solo for 95% of my games. I rarely play with other people, most of my friends have not gotten into beta, and I do not want to be forced to play with 4 others to find an enjoyable game.
