Well, I guess, now is the time to re-raise this question. I recruited my friend to Faeria, who is more social than me, and one of his first impressions is “they should make 2v2 format”.
I thought about it, and though idea has some serious counters, it can be potentially great. Especially now, when game was launched and number of players is growing. Here is what I would suggest for the best player experience:
- Pre-made parties with friends only. 2v2 requires communication and playing with stranger have no benefits to it.
- Only one queue, without casual and ranked divisions. This is the measure to stop spreading playerbase and growing queue time.
- Both players go at the same time. So you dont have to wait 3 turns for action. Potentially this opens some great cooperational combos.
I think, this would a great mode! At least an awesome experiment. What do you think?
