I love a lot about FaceOff mode - the Varelsi everywhere, the seemingly random teleports into the Void, the crazy fast pace and intensity, BUT - 80 percent of my mstches so far (between 15 and 20) have been against teams of obviously all high level players who are using mastered Kleese, S&A, Gali, Ambra, Ernest, etc and basically rushing the deposit point right off the bat and holding it for the entire rest of the match.
I had a run of 4 victories where I found a couple team mates who happened to be on mic, and, after getting zero point stomped by a team consisting of a team set up I mentioned above, we proceeded to win 4 matches in a row by ADOPTING THE EXACT SAME CHARACTERS AND TACTICS OF THE TEAM THAT STOMPED US.
On our 6th match, we came up against a team that did what we were doing, only better, and got our asses handed do us.
Combine this with the fact that Command Rank is no longer visible in lobbies, so unless you want to make title based assumptions and back out of a match before it starts to requeue, you have no idea what potential skill levels your team mates are at until you see them play, AND if you happen to be one of those unlucky players who seems to get teamed up with lower level players FAR more often than higher level ones, and it has made for a rather hellish and frustrating afternoon of PVP.
Also, FaceOff seems to be drawing people away from the Quick Match / Incursion queues, so I’ve even been having trouble finding those matches.
