We are co-workers. We do play a lot together, usually exclusively or as a team in a team map. One of our friends, who isn't on the list WhiskeySierra something or other, will often not accept invitations if he doesn't like the map or the team. Then the game will be mostly full except one slot where a stranger comes in. We do not actively collaborate. There is too much shit talking at stake. There may seem to be a concerted effort or whatever because we play together so much we know each other's style. We have also been the losing party in this, which would basically be impossible if we were all ganging up. I tried to solve this by using private games but my premium ran out. BTW, Gonzo got tired of losing to me and stopped inviting me to games after my premium expired because he is a little fancy girl.
