The problem is team balancing and wait times. Probably both due to low player count. But even when there was no trouble finding a comp match it still seemed like balancing didn't exist. (a 5 stack going up against a bunch of lvl 20s)
There needs to be a level barrier to get into comp. I think 20-25 would be reasonable BUT there just aren't enough players to actually implement that.... atm it would only make it worse...
The problems just compound eachother. Low player count means more wait time, more wait times means fewer players. Fewer players means less balanced teams (assuming team balancing actually works with higher player count)
Finally less balanced teams means less experienced players rage quit because they get stomped on. WHich means even FEWER players.
