If you don't like being on top of each other, don't play the ladder. But 2 picks would make the ladder terrible. It would just be like the current 2v2 ladder, which is rotten compared to the old 2v2 ladder.
It is just a different game IMO. It is about prioritizing some spots, countering others. Much of the game is decided on picks. If you played it like Strat ME (distribution wise), then you'd have about the same % of the bonuses picked (ignoring the 0 bonuses on ME)...but you'd have a lower percentage of the map actually covered since EU has many more territories.
Also, without the gift card that Strat 2v2 has, you'd have a big problem with 2 picks each and someone getting completely hosed right off the bat.
If it is not your style, so be it. But it is the better way to play it.

Whose bright idea was 4 start spots in 3v3 ladder?: 9/29/2015 12:27:44
"""But my point with the 3v3 is if you're gonna have 24/32 spots get chosen in total, just save everyone a lot of trouble and make it auto distribution. I don't think it would make much of a difference."""
Dang! Why didn't we think of this!!? It makes so much sense :|

Haha are you kidding Queef? I honestly wish that this is a joke - but I fear it isn't... I'm not sure you understand that even though there are 24 picks taken on the map out of the 32 bonuses - there is so much strategy to do with being able to pick well, have presence in the whole map, have some "safe" bounses. Balancing expansion vs fighting and having 4 different borders across the maps with only 5 base income. Please don't tell me that picking is the same as having auto distribution...

@Queefballs no one's forcing you to make 24 picks,you're good to go with just 4 the fact that you believe you need to make 24 picks itelf says that you don't want random picks and thinking a little for winning games is no big deal,if you just want to hve fun don't complain that your opponents make 24 picks,we just like to make more than 4 picks cause its no fun for us to make only 4 pick and play blindly
