@Ryoga said in When can global expect expert matching?:
Where do you all find these terrible PuGs? >20 min Luther, only C rank in newest UQ, whole MPAs constantly wiping... I hear all these complaints and yet I see none of that actually happening in praxis. Back in EP4 people were like "just wait for EP5/6 that's where things actually get "difficult"", then EP5 happened and I constantly got 8 min dragon PuGs from day one with rarely anyone dying. Were people just making false claims not factoring in global having access to better gear than they did back then or have I misinterpreted something here? Maybe with "PuGs are terrible" people actually mean that they take more than 2-4 min to finish off the big 12 man boss in which case yeah, PuGs would be terrible by comparison but that's still nothing like people usually claim it is.
While I haven’t had anything this bad myself they are out there. Yesterday had an alliance member doing a pug run, and had a 29min run on the new uq, had 2 or 3 do the last one and had a 24min run. It also depends how much dps you bring yourself, even one person with really tops dps can generally pull through a really low mpa before the run gets too long. The issue is when people who can hold their own on UH get matched with an entire mpa this is undergeared and underperforming, that’s when the run time really starts to spiral out of control
