It would be great if they had or could add a practice area with dummies that you could try out different gear on or fight against other players on your team while you wait for the match finder to find your opponents. Then it would just drag you out of there when it’s time to vote for a map.
I wholeheartedly agree with this. Any sort of practice construct would be utterly awesome overall. Just a blank room with some targets. Preferably moving ones, ones behind terrain, etc.
