I feel your pain, today’s tiny player pool makes this quite irritating. But I do have to point out that 2v2a matches can be launched without 2nd teammates condense. I know nothing about my current 2v2a partners nor their timetable. Or if they have slots for the matches. If you get matched against 2v2r team, decline is not an option. Second turn time out by your teammate will be very likely possibility. And that will hurt your ranking points.
