I get it, people can take monster in a party and throw the match away for their buddies to earn them some points on their winstreak and an extra 50 Silver keys. People can talk on Teamspeak or whatever. My buddies and I do this. Either everyone shuts up when the monster in in the same channel because we want to kill the monster, or people tell joke and talk smack. It’s fun, we make friends. If we want to tryhard We have the ranked gamemode
But at the same time, the number of people willing to do this are surprisingly low. People who want to farm easy games like that are more likely to just hack anyway. We don’t really gain anything from having this restriction.
On the other hand, what we lose is:
- if the monster leaves the game because he doesn’t want to play monster, your options are to either search again for a new lobby, or play against a bot. I didn’t come online for bots, I came online to play against people.
if I have less than four friends to play with, and we want to have a go at each other as monster, and drag a pub in, we can’t. There’s basically no downside to this unless someone wants to grief, which is almost as bad as hacking, and we punish people for that, right?
Playing as hunters over and over again in unranked is monotonous, it’s just restriction for the sake of security with no real benefits.I can understand doing this in a leaderboard (which we have) but it makes no sense in an unranked game mode where I - a 200 game, level 40 wraith - regularly get matched up with people who don’t have icons, and have less than 3 hours in the game. How is this matchup better than boosting? What’s the point? It’s not even fun for anyone
