I have often read posts about how random players in public groups suck at the game. As someone who plays most of the time in random groups I found this to be inaccurate. The main reason for failing a mission is most of the time bad positioning and communication.
In prospect of the coming higher difficulty, I think many public groups will be overburdened with it, as they are often enough with legend at this point.
Therefore, it would be good to add some (optional - for the purists) mechanisms to improve communication. One thing could be to add waypoints not as mod, but as official mechanic. Another possibility could be to make the chatwheel customizable. Both combined would help to not only point something out, but also to indicate your intentions or findings better. The command “Come Here” could also automatically add a waypoint to show the user position. Maybe there are better mechanics for that, but this should be a thought-provoking impulse for the developers regarding the upcoming new difficulty.
I know, that some players don’t like the suggested extra input, therefore something like this could only work as an optional mechanic. For all those, that now say, the players should just use their mic, not everyone has one, not everyone is in a situation to use it and someone who played public a lot, knows, that players rarely use their mic.
Another point to help the players would be the option to edit the name of a match, to indicate certain intentions of the host. Deed matchmaking has often been asked for too.
And at last a more or less personal request: I joined the official discord server and another wíth quite a number of members. The latter is nearly completely dead for some time and the official one is sometimes a bit chaotic. It would be really helpful to include a new section in this forum for LFG requests. Not everyone playing public does it by choice, some just don’t have a regular group to play with. A subsection would give a better overview and with an expiration date of posts, would be hopefully not too chaotic.
