Aye. Riot has worked hard to provide a matchmaking service that gives you 50/50 odds for winning and losing.

To most players, myself included, that feels as if it's completely ignorant of actual gameplay. People who want to engage in a feature called "Solo Queue" aren't looking for fair odds: we're looking for solo player games. Though that duo group might contribute to 50/50 odds, I don't care -- my game is being impacted by people that are not solo players.

It's not called the "fair match" queue, and DotA was not fun for solo players because it was "fair".

Solo: alone: without anybody else or anything else

Then its truly not a solo que, now is it?

With that said, there is no sure fire way of fixing it. lower premade to require 2 people? You better hope there's another premade with 3. The only way I could think of even remotely making it work out is a partial premade que. Where you can have 1-4 people join the que, which in its self would a rather interesting que.

Here are some intuitive and clear labels for queues.

- Solo Queue
- Partial Premade
- Full Premade

Honestly I think it's fine the way it is. All that would happen if they seperated solo from partial premade is longer queue times, and people would still QQ about something else.
