i just want to find a random player who also wants to play 2v2. without all the bs in between:

me: anyone for solaris 2v2
*crickets*
me: anyone??
*nothing*
me: there is an event on, free mc
A: that sounds hard
me: so you want to play
A: no
B: how much mc?
me: there is 400 for 2v2s, 300 for 1v1s
B: meh
C: solaris is dead
me: dont you people like mc?
A: yes
B: yes
C: yes
me: so does anyone want to team up
*crickets*

it goes like this for hours. i just want to play 2v2. i dont want to practice my social graces. trying to find another player who wants to join in on 2v2 is damn near impossible.

first of all lets point out the chat window, which does not have a general chat channel, let alone a solaris channel. i can only talk to other is players for some reason while fishing for other players. so i cant even ask the whole population if they want to 2v2, just the half aligned with my current fp faction which makes no sense. lfg doesnt work because you cant specify intent. i get an invite and its a gq/fp drop.

I think if I could just hit the queue and the mm would automatically sort the four players I would actually be interested in it.

I came here to see if anyone was organizing a time for 2v2, and agree with this completely.

Some considerations:

Are solo queuers going to be in the same buckets as 2-man teams?
  • If NO, you are adding 7 more buckets to a game mode that already has 14 buckets.
  • If YES, you do appreciate that a 2 man "team" is probably going to face-roll the solo queuers hard?

so yesterday i teamed up with a total potato and still managed to get 5 wins, sure real teams killed us almost every time. but thats not really an issue if you can make it up in volume. i apply the same idea to fp and it works out pretty well. you cant win em all, but you can win enough to make it worth your while. therefore 2 is the way to go. solaris is supposed to be no handholding allowed and was described as such from the getgo.

anyway i got to hound the chat to get my other 2 games.

Some people are just super flaky. We are usually dropping every day since the start of the season. Some want to get their names up there and only drop with one partner.

Where exactly? Is there an actual official channel where to look for a group? I can't find any on the client. Just curious.

Grow your network of pilots constantly. The more solid pilots on your friends list, the easier time you'll have forming groups, faction play teams and Solaris 2v2 groups.

Also, join a unit, a player teamspeak or a discord channel with other likeminded pilots
