So the noob experience is this (at least for PC):
- wait 20 mins in a queue for a team of 5
- wait 5 more mins to find a game (not bad once you get 5, and why most people are in pre-mades)
- get wrecked by all the other pre-mades because your team has lvl 5 noobs and the enemy is all lvl 100+
- Loose 1-20 games in a row (you can tell by how salty the noobs are)
Somewhere through that sequence of the event, easily over 95% of noobs quit. The ones that do stay are the ones that usually friend the hell out of every lvl 100+ player, and get on pre-mades with them.
So why don’t we just have a server browser like Overwatch just implemented and throw away the queue system?

The game already has private matches so they could just use how private matches are laid out but use the servers on a list for everyone to look for instead of having to wait forever in a queue with unbalanced teams.
I just played in a 10 man yesterday, and 2/3 games I played it came down to the final push on the sentry, and the 3rd one it was close too, but we had a better team comp.
With the low player-base most people know each other so the community can balance teams really well. While the low player-base and the number of pre-mades increasing every day, the queue system is really unbalanced, and matches take longer to find.
