So, I'm 100% a competitive mode player. I don't play anything else and don't really care to either. Free weekend, aside of connection issues, had some decent games here and there. Ministry's a nice addition to comp. That other new map I don't know if I like so much tho..
In short, the game continues to suffer from the same set of problems regarding balance.
- 5-stacks are allowed to play vs randos
- sometimes one team ends up with nothing but newbies, while the other team is full of high level players
- toxic behavior is not penalized in any manner. Players can shit talk as much as they want, nothing happens from it.
- lots of players have zero communication.
I'd be totally OK to wait 15 minutes per match if it means that I'm guaranteed to get a match and if it means that it's much more likely that the match is a balanced one than with these 3-4 minute queue times.
But playing games that are stomp or be stomped, it's not so much fun. Also some of the maps continue to be pretty imbalanced and just not fun to play, like Farmhouse East. A map ban feature would be pretty fucking sweet.
