If 4v4 starts but only 3 people on each side click Engage, spawn with 3v3
If not enough people Engage to do 3v3, fail and retry
Note that the hypothetical system above would NOT attempt to spawn a game from a starting point of 3v3, and never accepts 2v2s.
Now, this is only based on what I remember of the conversation, so it's not really safe to say it's direct from the devs, and it's totally possible I just misunderstood what they were saying or missed something in all the crazy chat scrolling.
But, it would explain why your 2v2 never popped, and why a 3v3 might not either.
The original Q system they had was the best. it could be 1 v 5 but both sides could leave and also others were allowed in. Nice and simple.
The more complicated it gets the less pops we will get. Just my opinion
