There are a number of reasons why I feel it would be advantageous letting players in a group play monster.
- The matchmaking times can be really long when in a group of 4, and its rare to find a monster who is willing to play a number of games against a made team. Just let one of us play monster and have a bot hunter rather than making us wait!
- If there is a party of 2-3 and you are playing with a few randoms, allowing everyone to have a shot would keep the lobby together for longer and have a greater variety of games. Some people in the lobby only want to play as hunter and I’m happy playing monster every now and again but they are stuck having to play frequently. It is punitive to solo players who only want to play hunter.
- I really like playing monster but have to play solo to do this. If I want to play against a full team of humans its either playing custom or solo. I can’t play with a couple mates. It basically limits the monster player pool.
Thoughts? Obviously there would be the threat of boosting if people cared about the leaderboards. Most people would still do the competencies offline if they wanted to boost mastery
