Allow players to switch each Solaris Division on/off, so players can queue in up to 7 Divisions at once.

This would both decrease the waiting time and improve the Solaris match making.

Pretty sure Solaris can be deleted, Russ can be given his own copy of the Island, and the Solaris experiment can be called failed. Sorry to the like 20-30 people in the population that'd care, to everyone else it's a waste of time, resources and space, just like we always said it would be.

Well the queue is too slow because there's like 1 or 2 players queued per Division, and the matchmaking is even worse for the same reason.

So again group those 7 Division queues into a single queue of 7-14 players, and Solaris popularity would improve.

Even better : Merge the 1vs1 and 2vs2 queue into a single 2vs2 queue, preferably with no groups allowed.

Now there's only 1 Solaris queue to go queue by yourself instead of a total of 14 Solaris queues to choose from, and proper matchmaking can finally be achieved by having the Match Maker systematically group the top elo player with the lowest elo player against the two other players in every match.

And again this single way of queuing (instead of 14), is to be combined with the ability for players to switch on/off the Divisions they want to play in.

There's a few hundred Solaris players, but once you split them into 14 queues and spread them over 24 hours, and the low Elo players quit early because they keep getting matched against the same top ~25 players because they're the only ones still queuing... that's when and why it goes wrong.

PGI says we need to reduce buckets in CW/FP.

Now introducing with Solaris7 14 buckets.

Geniusz.

PLEASE!!!!!? I've been begging for this since the 1st time they repeated the warhorn. I REALLY liked the Season 1 warhorn, and I only got one of them. The rest have been "meh", and now I've got five of the Season 4 warhorn... It's still just renumbering an old asset. But this time, renumber a DIFFERENT old asset. :)

Thanks!

Matt, you listening? :)

Or at least 8 players (same as MW4), but free-for-all is exactly what people think of when they think Solaris, and the fact that it was only ever teams is what killed it.

I may be myopic about this, yet tabletop Solaris was not about teams but about individual pilots in single combat duels. The art work used in the Stardate article specifically shows a 1 v 1 match.

Or are we only talking about online stuff ...
