If you can go 5 stack, if you want to experience true faceit experience go solo
premium or free?
from my experience, free faceit is cancer, people troll way more as they can't get kicked
Faceit Free or premium, MM, ESEA and even ECL or whatever, there are no more communicative and less toxic players in one or the other, it's your placebo effect that makes you say that. When you play a lot you will realize that it's the same everywhere. Just learn to play with voice_enable 0 and drop 30 kills, that's all.
IMO the difference is that in faceit overall you seem to get better players and thus better games, but at the cost of potentially more toxicity, since everybody is more "tryhard".
So if I just wanna play a quick game without brain after work MM is better for me, although 64 tick is ass
free faceit the same as premium faceit..
csgo is a game that iss mean to be played in a 5stack, just like any other competitive game u will only reach ur peek performance with a good group of 5.
When i play with 4 randoms mi performance drops alot, the lack of coordination most teams have is insane, people dont even know how to throw a propper flash even at lvl9/10 and get to high lvls just cause of insane aim what is sad.
I would recomend to atleast play with a duo u can trust, then u just need a decent 3 player and you can just outcarry the game in the terror side. If not there are plenty of faceit groups/hubs to have a decent 5 stack.
It's basically the same yeah. It get's better the higher you go in faceit level, but even in lvl 10 there will still be super toxic people, nomiccers and people that don't use util.
My best advice would be to join ECL, they've got longer queue times, but toxicity and trolling are not tolerated and people get banned almost instantly if they are found guilty of being toxic
