If a member of the party is playing badly, chances are, you still get the blame while they defend their friend.
While the quality of your games probably won't increase much, I think just avoiding situations like the one I mentioned is enough to play "strict solo". But still have mad people at ranked. Originally posted by dunk slam:. Originally posted by Mr. Guess I'll try playing in Strict Solo then.

All trademarks are property of their respective owners in the US and other countries. Checking more regions will increase matchmaking speed, but may cause latency issues if the server location is far away. You can select up to 3 regions.
It is recommended that you only choose regions where the language you speak is the dominant language for that region, this is to avoid people reporting you from speaking another language this does happen. The language window allows you to select up to 2 languages.
You will be matched with other players who have selected the same languages. Checking more languages will increase matchmaking speed. If no languages are checked, you will be matched with the current language of your client.
Players of roughly equal skill will be placed in the same game. Priority determines how quickly the player is matched with other players. There are 3 types of priority: Players in low priority will not gain battle points from the match, will find games more slowly, and will only be put with other players in low priority. Low priority is a common punishment for abandonment. Base priority is granted to any player when they enter a matchmaking queue provided that they are not in low priority.
High priority is granted when a player is returned to queue after a recently failed matchmaking attempt due to another player failing to connect to the game or declining the Ready Check.
Players may be banned from matchmaking for a period of time due to several offenses.
Match quality is presumably determined by a combination of the player's behavior score and their account flags value. Players with a high behavior score get matched with other players with a high score and vice versa.
The account flags supposedly determine in which matchmaking pool a player should be, independently of their mmr and behavior score.
The current behavior score and account flags can be checked using the Console through the commands. The behavior score shows as grades.
While Normal being the highest and F being the lowest. Valve has not disclosed how these scores are calculated, but abandons , reports and commends seem to play a role. Account flags are represented as an integer value. Most players report having an account flag value of 0, 1 or 3.
