After reading the Dev response on Reddit on how matchmaking was done, I decided to trust the system and give it a shot… Went into Incursion queue solo and didn’t leave matchmaking if I saw what I perceived as “imbalance.” They said matchmaking is based more on skill and behind the scenes algorithms, than Commander Rank… So be it. My team consisted of all solo players, no groups, and only one other person on mic. The other team had 4 in a group, and one solo. My team’s highest ranked player was me at 23 or so. We had a 17, 7, 4, etc. The other team had a 70, some high 30s and so on.
I went into the match expecting to get hammered and was ready to crap all over the Devs in turn like an immature, falsely entitled tantrum-throwing man-boy… “They lied! Matchmaking is broke!” “QQ!!!”
What actually happened… Instead of just playing lone wolf I unmuted my mic and started to communicate. A Thorn responded. The others could hear us. I started calling out positions and pushes… It was working. We were working as a team. If you haven’t figured this out yet please allow me to explicate. TEAMWORK AND COMMUNICATION ARE OP!!! They wound up surrendering after we took out the first sentry. A gg was had by all, and I learned a lesson.
Tl:dr - Matchmaking isn’t broken. Commander rank does not equate skill. The higher your command rank is the less time you’ve spent IRL. That’s it. Teams of 20 and under PUGs can crush over-leveled premades. Unmute your mics, strategize with teammates, and find something legitimate to throw tantrums about, like global warming or GMOs.
