How about holding a tournament for single players to enter into who are then randomly paired up with teammates? Wouldn't this be a better measure of a player's skill if they can win a tournament they entered alone rather than with an entire team of friends they have been practicing with? I would love to enter a Dominion tournament like this.

So... solo queue, yes?

The game type you are looking for is, "Solo queue, match me with teammates"
True love is found only in yourself.

Yes but that is matchmaking. There aren't any TOURNAMENTS like that. Like click on the tournaments tab here. It's all registrations for teams. I'd love a "solo queue" tournament.

Do professional soccer teams(also a team game, hint hint) go to tournaments and just get teamed up with other random players from other professional soccer teams?


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.

Your analogy is fallacious. Many people play games online alone. That is why solo queue exists in the first place.

Try playing in an inhouse sometime, it's kind of like that. And people have been wanting to do an inhouse tournament thing, so maybe that's the environment you're after.
