Although you could just do that...so...
What your not hearing in my reply, is I agreed w/ you, but there are serious deviants that live for screwing things up. If the algorithm they use is bad, that is one thing. But I doubt intelligent coders w/ years of gaming statistics in quake to work w/, picked some random code out their bums. I shudder at the random thought your proposing, because I feel half my games are already "random" quick F3 starts, and half my games require someone to spec, change, or gaunt to balance it before it is done.

There are certain players, that when coupled on the same team w/ each other, make kittens die from the smack down they lay. And I'm usually the only one that started still waiting for the next game where the shuffle always works fine.
Are you sure you haven't got to the point where you get ganged up w/ a team that needs you, cause your good and hard to shuffle against??? I have some players I know that, when I shuffle w/ them, I will never be on their team because the skill balance they put in place... is legit.
