Look, I'm not going to read any responses so typical answers like "gtfoh noob", "another complaint thread, buhuu ranked is broken, blah blah". You might as well write anything like that but I'm not going to be around to read them.
I played since very early beta (among the first) and 1,5 yrs ago I gave up in frustration. Frustration regarding servers, matchmaking, trolls etc. I'm sure the game has no problems with servers anymore.
So I picked up this game again maybe 3 weeks ago and found it very rewarding. I played thousands and thousands of games back in the day so I got back into it after an hour or two.
So i played some casual joust and quickly found out that I dominated my opposition, like extremely. I decided to queue for ranked. And in my 10 qualifiers I had AFK'ers (2v3), DC'ers (2v3) and trolls dying on purpose, running to Phoenix and such in 6 out of 10. So I lost 8 out 10 and was placed in silver. Ok, here we go, exactly same thing happened as when I started playing ranked, years ago. Anyways, I thought, no problem, I'll just grind this up to platinum or something in a few days.
But here starts the hell. Every other game, like literally 50% of games I have insane trolling, people running and 1v3 and die 10 times in 5 minutes. People doing all sorts of extreme shit. My old friends from before told me "you are retarded queueing solo, this is how the game is, don't you understand this?". Unfortunately, I had no queueing partners for joust so I had to queue solo. And it just kept going. I started to explain to people and begging them not to troll in lobby and only got responses like "stop crying, I do what I want, do you think I really give a shit about what you say?" Like almost every lobby was me begging for a normal game and getting foul shit back and the game starts and the trolling goes haywire.
This is not fun. So I gave up again and uninstalled. This time for good. Never going back to this awful community.
