For one week starting today, we will be running another test of our League Beta (1.3), this time focusing on our Party Series feature. In comparison to our previous League beta tests, this means that you'll be able to play together with a full party (4) of friends, in our League Rankings mode. This is the first time we're introducing this into Leagues, and as this is our first test of the feature we'd love to hear what you all think once you've tried it out over the next few days.

Surely parties of 3-4 won't stomp solo players in Blood/Eternal... :rolleyes:

How will this be introduced?

Does this need another patch like last time or is everything already in place?

I would be really excited queueing up with a full team of 4 because that's undoubtly the real way of playing the game.

My problem is the fact that you can leave a lobby without being punished for it. I doubt any known team will ever get to play a game because their opposition will just leave the lobby at first glance. And to be fair why shouldn't they? No reason to play a game that you're in a disadvantage in when you can press the button again and get another lobby.

There are only 2 choices here to make this work: Remove lobbies and just throw players straight into the game so they are committed to the match from the second they start searching. OR keep lobbies, but punish players for leaving the lobby once they're in it.

Unless this is the way lobbies will work for this test period of "party series" you will not get any result from it.

Honestly the fact that you can still leave from a lobby once you've started searching and decided to comit to a ranked match as it stands today is beyond ridiculous.

I'd recommend the first.

This would be needed for solo leagues, and i mean it .
As for party leagues, i would rather not play the league at all while being solo than be forced to play against full teams stomping solos every game . This is not how leagues are supposed to be . Team and solo leagues should be 2 differents leagues like on others games . But i understand that its next to impossible with the current playerbase...
