Can we please streamline the PVP?

I wish there was an option to quick-queue or at least stay in the same lobby with friends cross-server. When I play with friends and game ends I have to make new lobby, select the settings, give them the name of the lobby, start, go through the intro then actually play the game. It feels like I spend more time setting up & getting into the match than I do actually playing. Why can’t I just 1v1 a friend? Why is deathmatch disabled for private matches? Why do I NEED to have 2 or 3 randoms join just so I can play with friends?

Feels like a slog to play and even the public matchmaking for TDM/Elim is kinda guilty of this too, there’s way too much faffing about before you actually get to play.
