Square Enix realizes that bad players need to play with bad players
I've been doing PvE only and recently decided to focus my attention more into the PvP aspect of the game, to say I've done it, enjoyed it etc. (also not much new content right now).
As someone who is not completely trash in PvP (playing frontlines usually), I am still learning with each match I play. I am ranked Bronze with 29 matches played in the Feast with a 44% win rate. I started in the middle of the 2nd season to have something I can look forward to in this game, have dabbled in fl roulette a bit when Seal Rock was a thing. So I'm in the average/okay bracket I guess.
The biggest problem I am facing right now is the unbelievably unfair matchmaking in the Feast. I am put into teams with players that have been PvPing since s1 and earlier or players straight out of PvE with accuracy all over their lore gear. Basically how I started since I didn't know any better. (continued)
Of course I keep meeting players that express their upset feelings (and it can get pretty colourful sometimes), sometimes they are trying to give me helpful advice when I ask what I could improve on, I end up in the higher spots of damage dealt (MNK), but it just needs one guy to kill your mood and motivation for the gamemode.
You play with someone in a small team of 4 people, every player is important for the outcome. And then you have one or two in your team who don't know what the hell they are doing or are not aware of how to handle specific matchups (if you are a newcomer to the feast, how are you supposed to know all of this from the start, it's impossible).
You obviously get frustrated because you see the mistakes they do, they don't, seems so obvious.
Because you are not new. The community is almost entirely only out of veteran PvPers that have been doing this for quite some time. Which is not a bad thing, most of them are trying to improve and revitalize the community.
But the way matchmaking works right now... it will effectively scare away people who develop an interest in PvP because SE thinks it's a good idea to scramble all sorts of differently skilled players, mash them into a match for the sake of fast queues (which aren't fast at all even), mess up everyones ratings that don't deserve to be matched with lesser/higher skilled players and get carried to victories or drag their team mates down to losses.
I personally got my share of all this nonsense, I enjoy PvP a lot, just not the Feast anymore. It creates a negative atmosphere and promotes toxicity. I've had more fun at Shatter to be honest. I will come back to it as soon as SE realizes that bad players need to play with bad players, good players need to play with good players. Because I can't improve if I get stomped on by Golds constantly or let someone else carry me.

How to boost Alexander attractiveness?
This music in Alexander is not appealing at all, i remember doing T13 and unmute FFXIV each time before raid, now i cant even imagine doing that for A4 because i would rather just listen to some old 2.X music or even listen to something totally different.
We need stuff like that SE
Okay so, I read the preliminary patch notes for 3.1, and for the most part they aren't bad, but I noticed a few things that appeared to be missing, that I know a lot of people have been asking about.
