My win / loss ratio is not that impressive - coming up on 6000 PVP matches and only sitting at just over 60 percent wins.
And, while it will happen sometimes, I very rarely come up against the elite players / teams (which I don’t necessarily mind as they generally destroy me).
Whereas good friends of minec, who are a lot better than myself and whom I know have significantly better W/L ratios than myself seem to spend their sessions playing no one but those players and teams.
Thanks in advance!

If it is it’s very loose, I’ve played a lot of the better people but I’ve also gone into matches where I was the only high rank person right after that
I think the main difference for Me now is that I used to play Battleborn late nights into the early morning, whereas now I generally start playing around 9 am and rarely have matches past 11 pm or midnight anymore.
Same thing with me, which is why i rarely solo anymore. The last three times i soloed in the last month, i was up against 3 or 4 consecutive games against new players, and i quickly got off of Battleborn each time. It’s even worse when your high-level team is farming the low-levels, and i am forced to do all i can to quicky end the match.
That’s how the system works as far as I understand and it’s a good system with a healthy playerbase since it is not much fun for both high and low skilled players when the teams are random (it can turn into battle of the carries really fast and the low skilled players feel a bit useless in the game). But with a small playerbase and a very wide range when matching teams against each other, this turns into Elo hell and you only have the “winner teams” and the “loser teams” in the pool to choose from.
Resetting Elo on everyone in short intervals and basically forcing every player into smurfing that way might randomize the teams a bit, but it’s only a very crude solution to the problem (and premades are a much bigger problem then, so solo/duo without keeping teams after the match would be preferable).
My experience with solo duo is that it has to types of people in it. First: people that don’t like getting stomped by 5 mans trying to avoid them. Second: very experienced vets confident enough to carry a pub team against another pub team.
