Quick match for the longest time has become unplayable. And because “Shame to name” rules i can’t really bring up specifics but heres the jist of problems and who to blame.
The 2019 patch that was attempting to change the direction of the game and become more lane focused made a drastic impact how the game is currently played. This change created optimal play to be 3soaking lanes almost at all times.
YOU CANNOT leave a lane empty with out slowly losing the game(this is somewhat true at all times, because of the snowballing effect but gets less important towards lvl13/16), You mostly don’t min max the siege damage of camps but do them for exp on cooldown.
NONE OF THIS is common knowledge.
People REFUSE to move to the open lane and instead sit in mid and try to skirmish, and im talking about people with account level 500+ .
IF u tell them “hey you should move here” <— this is being toxic in their eyes and the only response you get is an ignore or a short message “report”
This is a personal experience, i went as garrosh to soak the empty lane, and later got flamed for not having a “allot of damage tanked” being stuck with no wave clear to soak. probably reported aswell . not to mention that its ridiculous to criticize a tank for hes tanked damage(maybe if hes intentionally throwing then it might serve as evidence for that but not the performance itself).
so whos at fault for this atrocious mess? is it the community that refuses to learn the proper way to play? is it the matchmaking algorithm ? who knows… oh wait i got a good one…
How bout the responsibility of this entire mess is 420.69% Lizzards fault.
You made a game that was advertised as “4FUN” we fight allot, and then made changes that move away from it(OMEGALUL).
You made a game that the optimal way to play is completely un-intuitive THEN proceed to not educate the playerbase how the game is played leading to insanely bottom of the barrel game quality.
Can you guys please HELP ME understand why am i not getting paid to play qm?
why are these problems not addressed for sooooooooooooooo long…
How can you have a good quality or enjoyable or even somewhat engaging games. how can u not be toxic when my success is tied to other people performing well(shared exp encourages people to not fix their mistakes because the consequences are just spread out evenly across 5 people, so personally it doesn’t affect you as hard)
can we please get some fixes on this. make a video saying “guys soak xp in 3 lanes, and probably shouldn’t send bad solo laners to those lanes” or a video saying “you know what would be funny? if you actullay spent time and learnt the game, thats dead and 4fun” do anything please fix any fix PLEASE give a me a reason not to uninstall right now.
