History

Dynamic Queue (V6.1V6.22)

DynamicEmblem

In 2016[1], the ranked ladder was replaced to allow players to form parties of any size to queue, meaning that parties would be matched with solo players. This resulted in uneven skill matchups, long queue times due to role populace imbalance, and disruptive team collaboration. It also placed solo players at a heavy disadvantage in matchups and rewards, and didn't accurately reflect the individual's skill. Due to these problems, Dynamic Queue was removed, returning in its spiritual successor, Flex Queue.[2]
