Quickplay -> higher chance for emperor, its not a great system but FS wants it like that. (***** ranald)
Skittergate and a lot of other bossmaps have of course a higher count of bosses, have a few difficulty spikes with patrols, hordes bugging in front of the gate, specials clipping etc.
- they are a bit more difficult simply by the lenght of the map.
If i play legend with a tryhard team with good comp, i would always play sh*ttergate.
Reality is, in quickplay you often have “bad”, not meta compositions, and as sorry as i am, the winrate of skittergate is lower than other maps, for me at least in 300h.
The map is so damn long, with an endevent more risky than other maps, i will rather happily jump down the abyss to skip it, than getting annoyed by someone pulling the patrol on the first spawn location because they dont know the map and its spawns yet.
People decided to skip it because they had bad experiences. Blame quickplay, not the people that want a less tense legend run.
Same thing was with white rat in V1, will be better once the average player is more used to the maps.
