Respawn should add a feature where you can select the first 3 legends you want to be. That way if people take your main when you aren't watching you dont get stuck with some random * that you hate playing as.
I second that. I generally take the breather in between games to make a coffee, use the bathroom, or take a couple of drags from a cigarette outside. Then walk back inside to the TV and finding out i'm playing Gibby in a ranked game in the Gold bracket before exclaiming a loud FFFFFF.
