Some things just shouldn’t be changed. I know that now. I used to think that a vote to kick option was necessary. I made a topic about it and I supported other members topics. Now I know that the kind of people that play this game really would kick someone for 1 mistake and even just because they think it is funny.
The option I was (and still am) against is the ability to search in a party to play monster. I know it has been discussed a bit and I think that I read they were considering changing the rule. I played a match last night with a member of the forums. We had a horrible medic. She (Val) just could not keep us healed. She just kept sniping and sniping and sniping. I died because of it. During the 2 minute timer I decided to send a message to the medic. Normally I would be rude (because I am a bad guy myself) but this person joined in progress. They could have been Level 1 for all I knew. So I was just going to send some tips on how to play Val. That is when I saw that our medic and the Monster were in a party chat together. They were boosting. The medic ended up just standing at the power relay while we got crushed.
This is exactly what would happen all the time if this rule were changed. The worst part is that I think it would end up happening every third game. Someone would make a post on the forums about it and my nightmare is that a certain forum member would say “There is no rule that says you can’t play like that.”
The scenario with that medic is the scenario that I would want a kick option but it would be abused for so many other unimportant petty things. So please, TRS, do not allow us to play with a friend as Monster outside of customs and sessions. If people really want to play with their friends then they can. If they are more worried about leader boards than let them go play against strangers.
