So, either I am extremely unlucky, the matchmaking is coded to force a 50/50 win to lose ratio by manipulating grouping of playes win to lose ratio, or the matchmaking is extremely atrocious.
My take on it is as follows: If an artifical push for 50/50 exists, REMOVE IT AT ONCE! Nobody cares about winning multiple times in a row if that also means you’re gonna lose horribly due to circumstances outside your control.
The beauty of true randomness is that it favors nobody.
As for the matchmaking, simply make is so players of more than 10 levels apart cannot be grouped together in a match.
Sure, will take longer to group but if longer means more balanced then it’s a price that I believe a lot of people would be willing to pay. Actively fight noobstomping and promote good players to face good players. Nobody learns anything if there’s no challenge or hope of victory.
Anyways, my 2 cents.
