All these posts are just getting ridiculous. Skilled players and 5 mans are allowed and on perfectly “moral” footing to be playing in “casual”. It’s just expeditious matchmaking, the casual label does not mean what you think it means.
In reality “casual” mean un-fragmented bandaid matchmaking with no ranking so that que times are bearable. “competitive” means skill based matchmaking, at the price of wait times. Competitive does not mean try hards only, despite the moniker.
The only reason there even are two modes is because skilled players WANTED the skill based matchmaking back. Despite what you believe, 90%+ of good players do not enjoy playing against crappy enemy teams. That doesn’t mean good players must always que competitive and wait 20 minutes for a game.
If YOU (talking to noobs/poor players who are complaining) want to avoid the possibility of being matched against good players, then you have the option to que “competitive” and wait for the skill based matchmaking to match you up with other noobs.
I don’t even see the complaints as valid to begin with, I que solo casual more often then I play grouped, and rarely do I get matched with 5 man premades, and often, they either aren’t any good to begin with, and/or are not try harding either. Maybe 1% of the time have I been matched against a try hard premade while solo queing. This is a high skill cap game, so unfortunately (from the complainers perspective) even playing half assed, (which is not a requirement of casua que) skilled players will just preform a lot better. So just because you got stomped does not mean the enemy was trying their damnedest to ruin your day.
