Basically that. The system of setting up one team at about equivalent MMR, then picking ANY OTHER team regardless of MMR just means Gearbox has created a pit that people will never get out of. You lose, you get put with people who lose, get you paired against people who win, your team loses. The cycle continues.
Only people who can put 4 complete losers in a backpack and hump it for multiple games get out.
RIP Battelborn for any semblance of competitive play. Makes Heroes of the Storm’s match making issues look like divinely inspired scripture.
