Had a random thought there and was about to post as a comment but rather just post it as a topic for more views ?
So for people wanting 6v6 and for people wanting 8v8 why not make all regions both simultaneously
Before people start pooping all over it let me explain
Queue opens as normal, bodies pile in, if the queue reaches 8 people they can hit search and be matched with another queue of 8 people, but if the queue doesn’t fill and only 6 spaces fill up, allow them to hit search and be matches with another faction searching with a queue of 6
Fifa is one example of a search engine like this with pro clubs , if you search with 5 human players on your team you are usually matched against an opponent with 5 human players on their team
So allow for both searches to be possible , maybe make it so that the points don’t differentiate that greatly having more people in your lobby because obviously 8v8 you can score more hits than 6, but that could also be the bonus of getting 8 is that you get more points and would drive people to have 8 deep queues as much as possible
It means like late night factions struggling to queue can still do 6v6 during lull periods but 8v8 during their busy periods
