Then on top of it, the 40/40 player population means I will be fighting the same team every mission due to how matchmaking works. Dethreaters and trolls, who refuse to play the missions, have still not been dealt with. The odds now go even lower that I will get a mission that I gain a reasonable amount of standing in, if I gain any standing at all.

De-threat and trolling missions that is something LO really should nip in the butt once and for all.

They've already stated they won't be doing anything about such things until after both phasing and the updated matchmaking are implemented (both of which require the engine upgrade first). This is reinforced by the simple fact that the ingame /report feature doesn't actually do anything, and manual reports via support (even with extensive screenshot and/or video proof) are ignored.

Why are you like this?

At least add a disclaimer that you don't actually know what you are talking about.

Perhaps, but here is a question if a player ends up in a stacked odds match against full Gold's is unable to kill due to skill level gap should he or she be forced to be farmed by the enemy team? I sometimes have people that afk because of that I don't really mind it its understandable from my end.

I think for threat to be accurate, everyone should try to the end of every mission.

 

Being nice to bad players artificially inflates their threat and lowers the good players.

 

Same goes for afk ... Getting stomped would accurately adjust your threat. Quitting artificially makes you look better.

 

I think that makes sense.

Reduces amount of Districts for NA and turns off Threat Segregation.

There were a few of us who understood that the lack of segregation on NA was a good thing.  But a few were completely against it because they had to play against golds... which I guess they didn't think was a problem before (no, it was just a bunch of silvers who enjoyed going to the bronze server to pound on low skilled targets).

phasing , matchmaking , and threat being reworked are to address this.

I'm convinced they do that intentionally so that those who detrheat will not get reported.

Especially for those who are blatant dethreaters who openly admit to it.

it is one thing for someone who is borderline to play against someone a little weaker , but it is a whole different story to get an end boss as soon as you start playing.

that is why it was a problem like that. there was no fair matchmaking at all. losing half of what players we had should be proof enough.

I know this has already been refuted but I wanted to quickly drop something in.
 

The GM team (And LO at large) have already stated that they do not publicise punishments. Just because you don't get a response saying "We did X to player Y based on your report" doesn't mean they don't do anything.
See posts above for already linked "I got banned for dethreating" posts.

Agreed, in fact with the population this low we may want to return it to just Waterfront and Financial with no silver/bronze and no East/West. 
These can be brought back once population rises.....hopefully

WF, Fin, Asylum and Baylan with bronze and silver dist only. We cant support the test districts and having a green and gold dist thats dead 24/7 doesnt put server resources to good use. Remove these and it will allow for minor segregation within what is currently populated. US East and West were merged years ago due to server pop and by reinstating that with a pop that 3/4 what it was then its nothing more then helping the game to die faster.
