    Jamestown said that they won't allow 5 solos to queue up against a team of 5, ever.

    However as a solo player you can still get queued vs. a team of 5 in other combinations, but it's not likely.

    If we did do this there would need to be major changes to the way we present matchmaking to players including removing game modes, not allowing certain group sizes and probably some other things as well. Any splitting of players in the matchmaking pool has the potential to make queue times too long which tends to make people not want to queue up anymore. I hope that answers some of your questions.
