GROUP QUEUE is 8 vs 8!

HEADS UP MECHWARRIORS!

Group Queue is set to 8v8.
If you make a group over 8 players you will not be able to launch.
If you are in a group of 3 or 5, your wait times in matchmaking might increase!

This is currently experimental
We will be monitoring to see how things work and could change back without notice.

Feel free to leave feedback in the announcement thread!


Please note: these are the INVALID GROUP SIZES for matchmaking for group queue
12, 11, 10, 9, and 7.

Without any adjustments to match earnings, EXP etc etc?


I feel for anyone trying to skill out mechs with the increased grind.

Worth a try, if it bombs we're no worse off than we are already.

Good hunting,

Letting Solo players OPT-IN for GroupQ is what is needed.

Will be better if group can be drop in single quick match. To low people on servers. Matchmaker doesn`t work and big problem with 12-0, 0-12 final score. Group and single players in the same match cann`t change a lot of balance.

P.S. sry for my english.

Yea, so long as each side has a team, solo players opting into to joining that would be great. I mainly do pugs, and it would be nice suddenly being treated with a 8V8 where both sides hopefully have 1 team consisting of like a 4 man.

It's wonderful to see this happening. There've been so many times when we've had 16 people on Discord wanting to play group, but we can't quite get 24 (or, sometimes, we got 24, but just before the last one arrives, several of the others got tired of waiting and left). It isn't 100% certain that 8vs8 will be the revival we're hoping for, but it's definitely worth a try, and it may very well mean that group queue once more becomes alive every night, as it did seven months ago. Splendid news!

I like that there is an attempt to make the situation better

I believe the more robust thing would be some combination of group and solo queue.

Much like FP, Group larger groups together and work down to smaller groups and the remaining gets filled with Solo Queue people. I think all would be happy with this.

While you're experimenting : Limit group creation to 8 players or less in all game modes.

I can see more LFG groups appearing in the LFG list :
- Maybe display if the group is QP or FP (or other) in the LFG list. Using a new column or different font colors.
- Or add separate sub-tabs in the LFG list to only display the kind of group you are searching for (ALL, QP, FP...).
- Or at least sort the LFG list by group type.

It's just Dumpster trying to get large groups banned from FP again as has been his mantra for years now.

i dont think this will make gq any less dead.
im for global 8v8 and merging qp and gq into a single mode, or roll everything into fp.

idk why were not doing dynamic drop size. drop to 8v8 or 4v4 when the pop is low, 12v12 when its high.
