Good day, Captains!
To answer some of the questions you've had since the announcement of the team and squad size changes, here are some points to address your concerns:
1. The current changes are nothing that is set in stone forever. We will closely monitor the effects it has on the queue times, the quality of the matches being played and we are, of course, very interested in your feedback, once you've had a chance to get your hands on it and give it a good and thorough test drive.
2. We can neither deny nor cough confirm cough that we're working on making custom games happening. If or when they happen, they are going to offer a broad set of options to customize the game, including team and squad sizes.
3. We do have plans to bring competitive gameplay to Dreadnought. At this point we are not yet able to give you more specific information what form and shape this will take, though. We will definitely take your upcoming feedback about the new changes into account when designing this part of the game.
4. There are currently plans being developed for a clan system in Dreadnought that will offer more cooperative features and expand on the teamplay aspect of Dreadnought. But this is also in a state where we currently cannot share any specific information with you since parts of it have not yet been finally decided on and will depend on feedback from you, our community.
I hope this helps putting the recent announcement more into perspective and like always, let me know what you think
