: The study was pretty extensive last year, and DID include entire sections on WHY players prefer to play Ranked with their friends, but couldn't actually make a Ranked Team. In fact, as you suggest, most of the reasons had to do with high barriers of entry to Ranked Teams, requiring a small roster of 5 players to be online at the same time, and Ranked Team roster sizes. There were also issues with queue times and match quality because there weren't enough teams in Ranked Teams to create good games. Remember that even in Dynamic Queues, you still have Tier Restrictions in place. You are NOT going to be able to rank with your friends if they are different skill levels, even if you wanted to. Tier Restrictions are one of the primary reasons why competitive integrity is relatively persistent in the Dynamic Queue system.

Tier Restrictions are one of the primary reasons why competitive integrity is relatively persistent in the Dynamic Queue system. Silver 5, and gold 1, extreme difference in mechanics. Bronze 5 and silver 5 extreme differences in mechanics. Plat 5 and Diamond anything extreme differences in mechanics. tier restrictions for dynamic queue should be restricted to just Plat just Gold just Silver ect. if there are dynamic queues. but im against them fully.

: Let’s talk about dynamic queues and ranked play
The vast majority of the player base is pretty low elo. So obviously the vast majority of people getting the survey is going to be between Bronze - Gold, or even unranked. Most of these said players, believe that they are in elo hell. So of course they are going to say hey if i could play with more people, my teams wouldnt feed and then i could win more games and be challenger! But reality, not happening. So basically its saying that they want a "competitive" queue they can play with friends in, but in reality its a step in a more casual direction for solo queue, and less competitive then it already is. And as all regions know NA solo queue is by far the worst, and adding dynamic queues into it, i feel will kill the competitive scene even farther for NA. Obviously i can't speak for other regions because im pretty biased being in NA.
