As probably a lot of people know, many people get frustrated when they continue to get a role that they did not want to play. Obviously the game is just trying to do its best to set up games and get them running (and hoping people are willing to bite the bullet), but I wonder if there are people that would prefer to wait longer in order to avoid really undesirable roles?
I would create a poll if I knew how but I guess just pitching the question should suffice:
If there was an option to DEFINITELY NEVER enter a game as a specific role (or two, or more?), would you be willing to wait longer (potentially much longer) to get into a game?
Since role preference is fairly even according to the last preference charts @MacMan showed us, I believe it wouldn’t necessarily add a horrendous amount of additional time for people to wait before getting into a game. Additionally, I think this extra time would be permissible if they can avoid a very undesirable role, since I know some people feel they have no option but to quit and try to queue again.
So tell me: Would you like this? How much longer would you be willing to wait? How many "Definitely Not"s would you like the limit to be?
I personally play with no preference selected since I found I always got a little upset when I got something that wasn’t in my top three preferred. Now I just get whatever is given to me but I have no emotional investment in who I want to play. This is for the rest of you (and to help bring back players that left because of this).
