i haz moar salty
In team matches with nothing but randoms, no matter the game, I have the worst luck. The only two online multiplayer games I play that have team modes are Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and obviously Red Dead.
When entering a lobby in Brotherhood, at least 70% of the time the only team with a slot (half the time then, multiple slots are open which means we'll end up outnumbered) is the team of n00bs or low levels, against a bunch of level 50s (the maximum level in Brotherhood). When you're outnumbered or your teammates are idiots in Brotherhood, your chances of winning team games are horribly slim. My luck on being on the losing team is terrible. ¬_¬
In Red Dead, I believe the random team-matching is loosely based on levels. Since I'm a 5th Prestige level 50 (the maximum), and being that very few players who aren't pros are such a high level, I get partnered with low-level teams as a way to counterbalance their suck. Problem is, one of me doesn't rival four others my level... ;_; 'Least posses remedy this. But on the first match, 99% of the time I'll end up on the losing team. I'm used to it by now, though.
Getting on the losing team doesn't make me salty, but it can lead to salty experiences. Namely impossible-to-get-around spawn killing en masse (ohai Red Dead's cannons on Fort Mercer and Tumbleweed maps), or the utter dominance over your team mates leaves you to fend for yourself against multiple enemies.
