I suggested this a year ago. Why not have a combined elo rank for each faction and mode no matter if you play as a team or random. This stops bad match making where teams change players all the time and repeat the 10 placement matches each time for every mode and faction there-by stomping in automatch. I regularly see top rank teams vs random mid and low rank players due to this. The situation gets worse the larger the mode.
I really cannot see any negatives to this idea. If you play teams then it has zero negative effect and would give the team a better equal matchup. If you play random it stops lob side match ups so also benefits those players that have no friends
So each player would have 5 x 4 elo ranks, for the 5 armies and 4 possible game modes. The separate team ranks normally listed at the bottom of the table would just disappear.
I also think this would help in terms of stats and data and discussions on balance as matching would be more accurate.
