Teams that have good synergy now can stick together, making for some fun matches and good playtime.
The unfortunate side effect of that is fresh pugs are being matched up against more of these teams now that you can re-match with your previous team. This means there is a higher pool of decent groups that will have better team composition and/or skill. And that means the fresh pugs are facing higher odds for a win and increased odds for losing.
At least that’s what I’ve found. I’ve been on teams that have a decent win streak, but when I get on losing streaks it feels much longer after this new matchmaking.
I’m not against the new system, I like being able to rematch, but just observing the downside of it. XD
