This is how every match is in Black Ops 2 for me:

Match starts and its me with some randoms vs a full party, everything is ok so far... after 1 minutes its only me alone with 1-2 other vs a full party because my team of randoms ragequited. Its always the same thing. Sometimes its even me alone vs a full party, how is this fair? this game is BS, if you play with randoms then you get screwed.

I rather have bots in my team than playing with these clowns who leave earlier.

what you can do is collect other players that you find in random lobbies. people with mics and people that are up to your level. a pick me up party. i think this is a dying art in COD. probably because people are les inclined to reach out these days. but you can have some great times with random good people you find while you play AND, if you FR them you can invite them to later games. thats how i do it anyway. perhaps im just old.

I play HCTDM solo quite a lot and it's very rare that I run into a full party, and even rarer still that I've come across a full clan.

Can i have your profile please? seriously. I would be happy when my own team stops leaving the match after 1 minute. Its so annoying to play 2-3 vs 6.

I don't mind my team leaving.... that's more killing for me!... I still get plenty of sh1tty experiences playing solo though... I can't call in a care package without one of my team trying to kill me for it, I'm constantly being shot by my own team when on a good streak, or having them run right into my line of fire and getting me kicked (sometimes on purpose).  Playing with a team is the way to go in HC.  I've a bunch of friends, all of mixed ability, and we play usually every 1-2 days for a couple of hours.  The difference when you're in a full party is staggering, just from having people watching your back and giving call outs of enemy positions when they get shot.  I'm a lot more dedicated to the game than them though (or have less of a life, one or the other) and so I still spend a lot of time running solo.  If I could, I'd always run a full party.

Kind of shocks me that it surprises you that playing Team Games with a team is more fun.

I try not to play without a party, as I know its not nearly as fun. I am not in a Clan, nor do I want to be... but I have been able to make a pretty good network of friends. Even if we don't have a full party, it can be a lot of fun. We don't win every time, but we enjoy playing together.

Its never been fun playing without a group. I know in MW3 I couldn't stand playing without friends with all of the oddball greenies out there.

It's a team game, and in this game it seems more than ever to require a whole team effort to get the win. In past games you could have one player just drag a team out of the muck, in this one it requires more of a concerted effort from my experience.

Most of my bros don't play much anymore so I almost always play by myself and I stopped using a mic a few years back when I'm alone. I mostly play hc tdm so I don't need to communicate too much and everytime I kill someone when I do use a mic I get called every bad word in the book. While in the lobby's I always get called horrible names too just cause I usually finish among the top 3. It just got so frustrating having to hear so much negative talk! The other day after my brother got offline I kept my mic and did meet some pretty cool people but its rare imo. The game plays great with my voice turned down to 0 but that's just how I play now. It's fun to party up but my bros and friends don't play when I do or don't play much at all. Good luck either way.
