Great discussion and good suggestions guys!
A suggestion I have is to add voice chat in the game! Sometimes players get muted and they can't talk for a certain period of time, so I think having voice chat will help to communicate with your partners a little more.
Also, I was wondering if you could choose your partners in a 2v2 match? I still believe we should keep matches arbitrary, but when you have a specific partner you want to team with in a match I think you should get that partner. One way to keep it like that would be linking them to yourself. Whenever you aren't linked then you can go solo in 2v2 and be palaced with and against someone at random. I believe it'll lower the rage from players by not getting mad for getting players that think they are bad. I'm also well aware of how bad it could be for 2 high ranks to team, so I've given the thought of one, they face high tankers themselves to even out the game, or their rank can't be the same and the difference between the person they want to team should be about 25-30 if their ranks are above, say 40, if not 50 or above? So yeah, I think this would be a great idea and will help perpetuate rage from happening numoerious times to the point where the players feels they need to leave the match because the distain they have for their partner or some other reason. Anyhow, its just a thought, nothing more. Hopefully there will be consideration put into this.
Another thing, since legendary points, like NPC crusher and NPC armor, have no effect in a pvp match, could they not be counted as legendary ranks in a match? It's unfair to the high ranked because they would have to deal with underdog against players who are within the same rage as them that don't need underdog. For instance, rank 60 vs 80, the 60 will have underdog because of LGD likes NPC crusher and NPC armor when those points don't even benefit them in battle. For this reason, I think those points shouldn't be counted in PVP modes, however, if they do count, I believe it should be used as a way to help them, not only by NPC's, but also from players!
Lastly, could the +6 passives be used as permanent passives? It'll help lower rankers have more accessibility to builds like high rankers do, and they will attenuate for legendary points they don't have yet. This would honestly be a good replacement for underdog, also on contrary to what I said about some legendary points being useless in PVP. It'll be attenuating for both sides: Higher rankers won't have to deal with underdog being a burden on them when ranks aren't that different and lower ranks will stand a little more of a chance for higher ranks so they don't feel beating higher rankers are impossible
To make higher ranks not feel that the ranks they have worked for aren't useless, I'm suggesting they be only purchased by varium and nothing else.
